Desktop Goodies

Let’s start with a little faux vintage science, shall we?

Yes. Please.

I think this cat-erpillar is on my craft to-do list now. You can make it move in many kinds of ways.

Just your average post-Easter bunny mass suicide (nice work decorating the seasonal isle, guys):

Best weather forecast ever:

You know it’s spring when the Chevys start blooming again.

Grandfather of the Michelin Man

If the Sears portrait studio offered this, I would totally get in front of a camera.

A quizzical little Max Ernst piece:

Excellent ad:

Love this…

Truly amazing top hat idea:

I’d be reluctant to buy these for the sheer amount of lacing required, but this custom painted pair is quite a work of art.

Cute crafty robot:

Perfect for Halloween season (or anytime, really):

Clock for the guest room, to make folks feel welcome:

Does anyone know the origin story of this ice cream truck?

If you haven’t heard, divorce rings are becoming…a thing, proving once again that no human milestone…however brutal…can’t be commodified.


This has come up on a few favorite blogs now…


Ghostly beautiful…

An amazing collaboration between Salvador Dali and Elsa Schiaparelli, circa 1938:

And Jesus rides in on a unicorn to save the day…

Marie Antoinette’s royal beauty regimen was far less time consuming after her loss…

  2. The ice cream truck is a character from the Twisted Metal video game series. His name is Sweet Tooth.

      Thank you, dear Spider…I learn so much from this blog! I knew someone would know where the truck came from!

  3. As always, an AWESOME collection of laughs, inspiration and macabre wit. LOVE IT! Where ever do you find these…

      Thank you! “Desktop Goodies” come from about 400 different sources I regularly peruse. They tend to be things that were posted somewhere online without credit. I do feel bad not citing artists most of the time…but the images still deserve to be out there!

  4. “Jesus rides in on a unicorn” That about sums it up.

    Also, that photo of the tree at sunset reminds me of Hexxus from Fern Gully.

  5. Love that lightbulb. I think the old ship in a bottle was getting long in the tooth. Tree in the vacuum of a lightbulb looks good to me!

      Exactly. People need to start putting different things in different glass containers. Change it up, people!

  6. I had a friend tell me about a “Divorce Expo” she had heard about. Apparently Divorce Parties are a thing also? Yeah, more proof I was born in the wrong time period. Or I exist in the wrong reality…one of the two. -_-

    Thanks for the post! I always love these

      Oh yes…there are parties, specialty cakes…you name it! When I build my time machine, I’ll pick you up for a journey, Michael!

  7. Ha! I like the “Reanimator Coffee” ad. Do you know its origin? I’m intrigued because I often think of the Reanimator (the film) when I drink coffee to “bring myself back to life” in the morning!
