Stoned & High On Glue

October 1st, 2017 · 4 Comments

There is unique art work throughout the house as well.

The main bedroom.

What imagination.

Such artistry.

Check out the leopard chair in the entry.

Where do you buy such stones in The Netherlands? Does Amazon Prime deliver there?

The seller painted marijuana leaves on the bedroom wall, hoping to sell to the highest bidder.
