Posted in decoration, halloween, home with tags , , on October 15, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Those located near Orange Country might want to check out the unique Halloween display at Roger’s Gardens.

It almost feels as it one is exploring the craft supply shelves of a witch (who has mild OCD and arranges everything neatly), somewhere in an old mansion.

Classy, indeed.

I adore the antique style decor…

The trailer (yes, the display has a trailer!) is even more impressive!

Halloween Countdown: Williams-Sonoma Skellie Toile

Posted in anatomy, decoration, halloween, skulls and skeletons with tags , , , , on October 13, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

The Williams-Sonoma Skellie Toile collection is reminiscent of vintage anatomical textbook illustrations.

Given my predilection for anything that makes me feel as if I’m either in a museum or studying something that belongs in a museum…I’d give these items a spot in my home all year long.

Now this is an apron I could cook in.

Aligator Condiment Holder Set

Posted in creatures, home, products, wish list with tags , , , on September 24, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I received a text message from one of my dearest friends, showcasing this fantastic Alligator Condiment Set.

Pottery barn is marketing this as a Halloween product…but to me, it’s an all year kind of thing (hell, I’d put this on a wedding registry). There’s a matching alligator skull that hold a bowl!

Does anyone actually own this set?

Nathalie Lete: Meat Rug

Posted in craft, dolls, home, meat with tags , , , on September 19, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Here we have an eye catching rug by Nathalie Lete for the discriminating carnivore (the roses are a nice touch, no?):

She has more unique rugs in her multimedia portfolio, such as this doll head (which I think I’d feel a bit guilty walking on).

All types of art can be found on her site.

Kirk McGuire: Cephalopod Tables

Posted in furniture, home, sculpture, sea, wish list with tags , , , , on July 29, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Now THIS is how you hold up a pane of glass for a coffee table! Kirk McGuire has a series of bronze sculpture tables that add a dash of marine adornment to the home.

The octopus is definitely my favorite.

But the giant squid is pretty great, too.

And the leafy sea dragon is a bit more understated, which is nice if you don’t opt for the bold look of cephalopods.

Cardiac Wallpaper

Posted in anatomy, decoration, home with tags , , on July 28, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve never considered patterned wallpaper before (my environment tends to be a little “busy” with books and odd trinkets cluttering every free space, so it seemed a touch overstimulating to add designs to the mix). But I’m sold on this Cardiac Wallpaper.

I think this looks lovely. We’ve all heard the expression “If those walls could talk…” The hell with talking; I’d like my walls to rhythmically beat.

Industrial Artifact

Industrial Artifact has me drooling over their home furnishings, particularly the gorgeous vintage style storage.

So many drawers! A piece like this could nicely streamline my craft supply/trinket hoarding…*cough*…I mean…collecting.

While the store lands unequivocally outside my current price range, a girl can dream.
