I have a shirt with this design, but I absolutely love this Fibonacci Sequence necklace from Boutique Academia (wow, do I want this!).

GO SPORTS!

Since today is “Superbowl Day” (as I call it), I feel it’s appropriate to showcase this genius T-shirt. This is what I hear in my head, and have probably blurted out loud a few times, when fans are watching in my presence:

s1

Don’t get me wrong. I can be entertained by athletic events; I even know all the rules of tennis and most of hockey. But I believe I will fully comprehend the world’s collected works on theoretical physics before I “get” football.

Do you get football? I’m impressed.

s2

A close second favorite in Woot’s athletic section: Always Picked Last (there should be an ALWAYS PICKED FIRST (in spelling bees) shirt).
s3

Enjoy the Superbowl, if you’re watching!

GO SPORTS!

Thank you, Brian, for sharing this!

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!

Gerri Tullis has a great collection of handmade iron on patches in her Etsy shop. My favorites are the apothecary labels, especially this first one (which I so desperately need).

There are other wonderfully well done designs for the spooky and/or esoterically minded as well.

Coline Design: Text Tights

Posted in clothing, fashion, geek, wish list with tags , , , on January 15, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I definitely want to get my hands on some Text Printed Tights.

Coline Design makes a variety of colorful tights with famous literary quotes (from the likes of William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, Lewis Caroll). OR, and I love this option, you can order custom text.

You will also find a number of different fonts and styles. I’m such a sentimental fool; I’d probably love to get a pair with memorable words from a loved one.

What quote would you emblazon on your legwear?

Antikamnia Chemical Company Skeleton Figures

Posted in antiques, products, skulls and skeletons, wish list with tags , , , on January 9, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Oh Victorian Trading Co., you’ve outdone yourself! The purveyors of new goods with antique style are now producing figurines from the Antikamnia Chemical Company Calendars (which I was certain I posted about but cannot find here at the moment).

Skeleton Diagnosis
22859






These skeleton figurals are inspired by the watercolour artistry of 19th c. illustrator Louis Crucius, commissioned to create a calendar for the company in 1898.

Dr. Death
22858

Clown
22857

I do plan to frame some calendar images at some point, and while nobody needs Antikamnia figurines, I think they’d make a fine addition to the home.
