This great article features an 1840′s miniature butcher shop, complete with a series of strung-up meats.
A few different theories surround this incredible creation. Some believe it was intended for presumably less squeamish children of the Victorian era, while others call attention to the popular trend of miniatures for adults at the time. Either way, it’s an intriguing artifact.
This 1900 model, on the other hand, was made by esteemed German toymaker Christian Hacker (definitely intended for children):

It seems I had a bunch of images lined up to post, so expect another Desktop Goodies installment soon…
Let’s start with an amazing
real life Batmobile pig shaped food truck! I’ve never seen anything like this. Completely awesome.
And while we’re on the topic of vintage attire, this is what women used to wear before we only had the option of prepackaged “slutty hornet.”
(2012 versions often cover less than a swimsuit and have titles like “Queen Bee-otch”…I’m not kidding)

These life-like Beavis and Butt-Head statues having been making the Internet rounds as well. Wonderful job crafting a photorealistic and rather horrifying vision of these two, Kevin Kirkpatrick. See a few more shots here.
On a related note, I think this would make great club wear for introverts. It really sends the right message if one is not in the mood for human interaction: Come one step closer and I will BITE you!
And speaking of cats, take a look at what I always pretty much assumed would be my own future (everybody knows it’s not official until facebook says so…this is the real deal):
Ohhhh-kay, so I’ll admit that I only envision myself in a relationship with one or two cats. I’m about quality, not quantity.
Soon I will post some holiday goodies, but let’s see what non-celebratory things we have lurking on the desktop today…
Speaking of cakes, look at THIS (care of My Ghoul Friday):
Never underestimate what nature does when you’re not looking. I leave you with a philosophical question: if a tree eats a fence in the forest and no one is around to see it…does the fence still get digested in a fibrous mass of sappy, fibrous tree guts?
