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.

Far East

A Little Asian Influence Today1. Autumn Gardens Wa-Loli kimono styled bustle dress - taeliac
2. CHOPSTICKS Pendant Necklace - CosmicFirefly
3. Antique Chinese Cut Coin Medallion w/ Yin Yang, I Ching, Dragons - petsalad
4. Modern day Geisha, RED dress - PlastikWrap
I've always had a bit of love for the Japanese and Chinese cultures. So wrapped in history different from anything I've known. I suppose that's the romance with it though, it is so different from the west we're comfortable with. I thought I'd try to find some different items influenced by the culture each in its own way and I did. Gorgeous clothing, quirky jewelry and a piece of art from a coin, beautiful.
