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.

It's Where All my Crap Is1. Lady in Fancy Hat silkscreened cotton canvas throw pillow - utilitarianfranchise
2. Balloon and Cat - Wall Decal - shadowtheatre
3. Wall Clock Face Round Light Switch Plate Cover - ImpressionsExpress
4. Arsenic and Old Lace - Lamplighter
One thing is clear as I prepare to move...I need cooler crap. So I found some nice steampunk wares for the home that are still subtle enough for everyday use. There were a plethora of similar throw pillows to class up the joint as well as many interesting wall decals. I thought the switch plate covers were quite cute and you simply cannot go wrong with an elaborate lamp shade. Full disclosure, yes I did do the tatting on that lamp.
