So, my parents used to own a little boutique shop, but since that was about 10 years ago,we've had a glass head lying around for about that amount of time.  I said it would be neat to put a fish in it, and have it supported by a hat. So for my birthday this week my mom re-sold me my own craftiness for my present.  She got me a Betta Fish and a plant, we had some rocks and the hat is from a second hand shop.  So here it is!  the Fish Head.



Here is a close-up so that you can kind of see the fish, who I have named Elliott.

FANTASTIC

I worry about whether that plant is okay for the fishy though. There are lots of options with silk and plastic ones.

It's a special Betta Fish plant, don't worry. Smiley

That is so awesome.  The drawing inside my notebook (which I did) is of a bust with a fish inside of it.
