All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

Curious Creatures

Creatures big and creatures small, not born, but created by the hands of makers both insane and visionary.1. SteamPunk Airship Welding Ant- RiverOtterWidget
2. Octopus Chandelier - lanternfly
3. Steampunk Cicada - kochansky
4. Stone Scarab Specimen (Scarabaeus petrichor) - Nullalux

Would you like an ant to do your welding, the Kraken to light your dining room? Do you think that a cicada is not complete without a top hat or monocle? Perhaps you prefer your creatures mounted behind glass, I suppose you might be safer that way.

Thank you so much for the link! Maybe someday I'll be able to have a cephalo-lier of my own.
