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.

Odd and Alien, Capturing Our Imagination1. Giraffe Weevil plush soft sculpture - weirdbuglady
2. Clockwork Bug Pin - jfarrisfromtheheart
3. Bug Monster Print - Wings 02 - hitchcocksatterlee
4. Velvet Luna Moth Brooch - ratsliveonnoevilstar
We love insects at our house and have become quite the amateur entomologists, looking up all the facts we haven't already digested. They are amazing, fascinating and clearly they inspire art. Looking though the insect listing means trudging through the same amount of assemblage jewelry as an octopus search, but if you're careful you will come out amazed. Anatomically correct plushes, creative sculptures, bizarre art and the occasional piece of gorgeous jewelry.

Makes me miss my ladybug pocket watch.

Woohoo! I love bugs, too :) I want that moth brooch... I'm sure I could find a way to incorporate her into a dance costume -- maybe pin her to a headband instead of wearing a flower in my hair.
