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.

Oh, Alice

I'm Late, I'm Late...you know the rest1. Steampunk Alice in Wonderland - strangeling
4. Alice in Wonderland surreal weird Gothic lolita art print - UnderlandArt
With the recent release of photos from the new Alice film circulating, well...everywhere, it's hard to get the girl off my mind. I always found the story fantastic and full of the same darkness that makes Grimm's tales so memorable and twisted. I for one am terribly excited by the re-imagining that these photos foretell. Re-imagining that many other artisans have been doing as well. Costumes and art were just the tip of the Alice iceberg on etsy, go look for yourself, but don't get lost down the rabbit hole.

I love Strangeling's artwork! Once I get caught up on hanging the art I have, some of her prints are going to come live with me.

Yes! I adore Alice, and I hope the new film lives up to expectations. I'm a huge fan of Burton, but his version of Charlie & the Chocolate Factory kind of scarred me.

Nice picks!
