Jim Hodges’ Picturing My Heart (2004) has been described as an “eerily captivating” cast pink crystal skull, divided in two, forming a (broken) heart. The two parts together measure 9 1/5 x 22 x 16 inches, and can be seen displayed as photographed above at Flag Art Foundation as part of its A Secret Affair exhibit, through May 16th, 2015.
Oh, my. This visually compelling wine bottle stopper combines three of my favorite things: drinking, skulls and the color pink! I am buying one right now, and you should, too. Because Halloween is closer than you think!

Hey it’s good to be back at the blog, and to kick off my return here’s a rad Pink Thing of the Day: the Pink Flocked Skull for Girls! You have to admit, this universal symbol of human mortality is a lot more palatable in pink. Each 6″ tall, hollow plastic skull is completely covered with a pretty shade of velvety pink flocking. Hinged jaw allows you to pose it with an open or closed mouth. Isn’t it adorable? List Price: $16.95 from Archie McPhee.
