I find something about this tiny rug quite sweet and endearing.

Dream big, little carpet!

I apologize if this is in poor taste during such a warm, festive time of year. But I’m pretty floored by these edible marzipan babies.

Yes, these creepy little confections are made of sugar and almond meal. Not sure I could bring myself to eat one…


The LOST Underground Art Show

Gallery Nineteen Eighty Eight in LA now has a large of exhibit of art inspired by the TV show Lost.

Even though I don’t follow the series, I enjoyed looking at some of these pieces. I’d imagine they are extra enjoyable for die hard fans of the show.

See the rest of the exhibit here.

Smack in the middle of Christmas crafting, I randomly made this. Vintage paper doll, a book of ghost stories yellowed with age…

I was thrilled to send it to my lovely doppelganger Sarah, along with my wishes of holiday cheer, of course.

And if you feel like hearing a nice, mildly baffling song about a nurse, here’s a great cover of the Failure song “The Nurse Who Loved Me.”

Where is my childhood Lite Brite? I wish I could do this…
