I've always been interested in oddities, but my attraction to strange home decor has grown over the last year or two. I pridefully display a bird spine portion and one of Ella's baby teeth right along with my succulents and house plants.

My list of I really wish I could find these nature wonders includes : a bee hive, a few birds nests, shells, starfish, and other ocean wonders, a set or two of antlers, a turtle shell, and a few butterflies. If you find any of these or anything similar and send them my way - I will be sure to send you a treasure of other sorts.
Since my chances of finding these natural novelties in my neighborhood are very slim, I might need to incorporate decor like these for the time being :
