I Spy Something...

Reptilian.  I adore, Adore, ADORE tortoise shell decor!  In fact, I adore it so much that I've decided to incorporate an actual tortoise shell (or should I say "replica") into my bedroom.  Tortoise shells have been used in design in a variety of forms- hung on the wall, mounted on a stand, lacquered, bleached, displayed in shadow boxes, etc.    Here are some example interiors with reptilian flair:

I would like to have one hanging amongst a gallery of frames above our dresser, but they can be a bit pricey.  I've found some budget-friendly options like these...

 Sears - $74.99

And this guy...

West Elm - $79

These are great, don't get me wrong, but I'd still like to try and find a more authentic looking one.  Maybe at a beach souvenir store?  If any of you know where I can find a 15-20"+ replica for under $100, please comment/email me!
