Silas Skull Bag

It takes Halloween to make me realise just how many skull related items I have in my possession. I tell myself that it's my background as an archaeologist, hulking skeletons back from digs that fostered my interest skulls and skeletons (the Ashish skeleton track suit makes me sick with want and jealousy).

My friend has this bag, used over many years and it has turned a lovely dark brown from wear and tear. I  don't use mine because I have bag envy - whilst it is lovely it in no way looks as nice as my friend's. I know if I actually used it I could hope to achieve the same weathered look in about 5 years, but I am a quick fixer sometimes and I want it aged right now. Still, perhaps now is the time to embark on operation: bag age.

soak it in tea, that should give it the suitably stained/ weathered look...
