Charm Villa Goldfish Teabags

Posted in products, sea with tags , on November 22, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

When I was little, I used to pretend the teabags in my mugs were fish, swirling them through the water to make them “swim” by pulling on the string.

Charm Villa has brought a piece of my childhood imagination to life with their goldfish teabags!

I’m surprised more companies haven’t done this. It seems like the most natural design idea in the world to me!

Shiro Cosmetics just had my eyes glued to the screen for 20 minutes. This is a cosmetic company with imagination, sense of humor, and seemingly awesome products. Check out the names!

From the company bio:
We’re proud to offer high quality, vegan, cruelty-free makeup which we blend by hand every day in small batches from our lovely little Portland laboratory. Our inspiration comes from the things we’re passionate about (which mostly involves our being giant shameless nerds), which we’ve used to create a wide range of unique, vibrant products and colors.

I can’t stop listing them! The moment I saw this brand, I did not leave my computer until I had browsed every single item.

The Lennon Sisters: Dry Bones

Posted in skulls and skeletons, video, vintage with tags , , on November 20, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

If you’ve never caught this classic, it’s time you watch The Lennon Sisters performing Dry Bones. Adorably out of sync, but full of heart.

I’ve just been browsing Martha Rotten’s Etsy store, and I came across some interesting jewelry bits.

My favorites (which I hope to add to my collection one day) are the clock hand earrings and necklace.

There are many variations of bone, straight, curved and otherwise.

And the occasional Confessional Cuff.

Mer-babies are a rather underrepresented part of the Mer-kingdom…at least in jewelry.

Vergvotre

Very little information exists about Vergvotre (and the bio page on deviantART consists only of a glass phallus, so be aware it’s NSFW. I link you to the safe gallery here).

Can’t you just see these smoky apparitions swirling through their ethereal dance, one moment visible…the next, evaporating into thin air?

Here you will find keepers of souls…

The Art of William Basso Store

Posted in art with tags on November 17, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I’m thrilled to announce the opening of The Art of William Basso Store! Basso is a truly gifted artist of all-things-spooky, and now there are limited edition prints available. I bet these works look phenomenal in print.

“Pale Thing” is one of my all time favorite horror paintings. It’s just perfect in its ashen decrepitude.

You will, of course, find Halloween themed pieces.

Flowers That Look Like Things That Are Not Flowers

Posted in nature, photography with tags , on November 16, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I recently came across a post showcasing 17 incredible flowers that look like other things. Isn’t it lovely how nature throws these little gifts at the human tendency to anthropomorphize?

Many of them are variations of orchids, which I will be researching more from this point forward, as I’m sure there are wonders to behold in the world of Orchidaceae.

We have a delicate flying friend…
