Halloween Countdown: Gentleman Crow

Posted in craft, creatures, decoration, halloween with tags , , , on October 2, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I love when readers/fellow bloggers share their own creations with me! Halloween decorations can all start to look the same after a while. The lovely Jori of Shivers of Delight decided to change it up and craft this “Gentleman Crow” to grace her front porch this year.


You can see some in-progress shots and read more about it HERE! You’ll find lots of other spooky goodness on the site as well.

Are you doing any unique decorations?

Pixers Forest Wall Murals

Posted in decoration, home, nature, wish list with tags , , , on August 24, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

The website photos have large, obtrusive water marks so I could only find a couple from other sources, but Pixers’s “forest after rain” murals are some of the most beautifully atmospheric wall decorations I’ve ever seen.


Although the weather does affect my mood, I’m partial to the foggy, cloudy murals on the site because the hazy glow is much more dreamlike. The crisp light of the sun shows everything in sharp detail, but in the obscured distances beyond the fog…all possibilities exist at all time.

Twilight Zone Doorway Decal

Posted in decoration, home, sci-fi, TV with tags , , , on July 8, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Would you like your home to contain a 5th dimension beyond that which is known to man? A dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity? A middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, that lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge?

Well, you’re in luck. This “life size” Twilight Zone wall decal contains the iconic (eyeconic?) eye and clock from the opening credit sequence, floating in the endless vastness of space.

I’m tempted. Oh yes.

Pourtensious Tea Chandeliers

Posted in decoration, home, inspiration, lighting, tea with tags , , , , on June 30, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

The website seems to be down (at least for me) right now, but I still want to share some Pourtensious tea lighting fixtures because they are gravity defying displays of awesome.


I want to make one of these so I can perpetually feel like I’m in a magical place, somewhere down the rabbit hole.

Gothic Alice and Wonderland Wedding

Posted in decoration, wedding with tags , on May 15, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve grown a little less (overtly) wacky in my advancing years, so a Gothic Alice in Wonderland wedding isn’t on my list of ideas anymore (though make no mistake about it, my wedding will not be anywhere near normal).

But I must give credit to this couple who really RAN with the theme and pulled off an aesthetic feat most of us will never encounter in the many nuptials we attend.


The color scheme somehow pulls off the seemingly contradictory fusion of dark and bright, and the black lighting is certainly a memorable touch!

This evening effectively transported guests into a completely magical landscape, as f the ceremony were taking place in another dimension. Entire prop sets were built for the occasion!

I applaud their uniqueness and creativity. This is not an event anyone in attendance will soon forget.


Jellyfish Air Plants

Posted in craft, decoration, nature, sea, wish list with tags , , , , on January 28, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

PetitBeast invented a brilliant houseplant display using sea urchin shells to mimic the body of a jellyfish and growing plants as tentacles.


These little sweeties hang in the air and give the illusion of floating/swimming through space. Each one is entirely unique as, with minimal care, it grows in its own fashion, delicately swirling and curling.


Some versions come in kits of 3, which I think would look extra amazing.

Would you hang this in your home? I give it two thumbs, um…eight tentacles up!
