Needing, Wanting, Loving: A Decorative Bust

Happy Monday my dears!  Did you have a fun St. Patrick's Day?  I worked on projects for finals this week but managed to sneak out last night for a few hours to down a frozen green margarita.  The good news is finals will be over Tuesday and I can resume my normal social life, at least until next term gets crazy!  

Today I wanted to share my love for decorative busts.  As an advocate for mixing antique with modern, there's no better way to add a touch of classicism than with an antique bust.  They can be placed on an entryway table for all to revere, or serve as a necklace holder for a quirky touch:

I had a moment when I spotted this bust in one of my favorite local stores, Kuhl-Linscomb:

Covered in geodes and seashells?!  What could be better?  Unfortunately the price tag was more than I could bear, but every time I visit the store I stop by and say "hi" to my favorite little lady.  I wish I had the funds to adopt her but I trust she'll find a good home.

What's your take on decorative busts?
