Welcome

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.

Absinthe

Do you dream of the green fairy?1. Fridge Magnet - Absinthe - WinonaCookie

Some things are so full of mystery and history that they inspire a level of devotion that moves far beyond their reality. Absinthe is just a drink, sure it's a green, alcoholic drink, but still just a drink. It is the history, the myth, that has raised it above it's station to a place of honor. People pay homage to it in so many ways, art and jewelry, clothing and even cosmetics that it's hard to not want to play along.

I like most anything that tastes like wormwood

... the herb, not the meteor - one never really knows where meteors have been

... especially that one, I've been waiting for it many, many years now *peers angrily at watch*

I once "concocted" an Absinthe substitute by adding some wormwood to Pernod.I have this amazing book called"ABSINTHE-history in a bottle" which suggested it.

Delicious stuff, really, and the mythology around it is so fun. I've been lusting after this sweet little flask...
