SWS Gift Guide: Fluffy Forehead Fragrance Fabric Water

Posted in absurd, cats, gift guide, home, japan, products with tags , , , , , on December 12, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

“Gift guide” is a holiday feature (surprised I haven’t done it already), and technically this probably shouldn’t even count because the company does not ship to the US. But Felissimo’s Fluffy Forehead Fragrance Fabric Water is a very special product.

The chief of Yamamoto Perfumery took four months smelling the heads of cats to perfect the scent of FFFFW, and it retails for about $10.60 USD.

Of course, they recommend using it on Felissimo’s fine array of kitty cushions (which strikes me as the saddest, loneliest…and most awesome activity). I can’t say, with certainty, that I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t have two of the real thing in my home.

What does your cat’s head smell like? I’ll go first. Morbius: laundry detergent, if laundry detergent for cats existed. Nimbus: happiness and faint, pungent litter.

Galaxy Bedding

I’m not even sure how I’d choose among all of these beautiful Galaxy Bedding sets.

They have pretty much any color scheme you can imagine. So many choices! Unfortunately, the price and shipping are a bit steep ($33 shipping for a flat sheet! Yikes!).

Still, a girl can dream…hopefully on galaxy sheets one day.

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.

Magnets and wall mounted floating shelves help create this awesome illusion.

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.

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.

Michael Hacker: Brainwashing Machine

Posted in absurd, anatomy, art, craft, home with tags , , , , on June 28, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

If only illustrator, comic and poster artist Michael Hacker would paint my washing machine! What a perfect vision this would be upon opening the laundry closet doors.

I rather wish I could just pour some detergent into my brain and give it a good cleansing when there’s too much grime built up. Wouldn’t that be great?

His two dimensional art is full of fun, lowbrow goodness, too.
