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.

What's In A Face

Apparently, A Lot

I was randomly searching as I am wont to do when I stumbled upon our Mrs. Blackwell here and was strangely drawn to her visage. I felt compelled to find more portraits that commanded my attention with bizarre and compelling details. My travels led me in many different directions and there are far more pieces to share with you in the future. I hope these can hold you over until the Wunderkammer returns to the portrait.

I really adore anthropomorphic portraits with animals in Victorian costume. Grand Ole Bestiary ~ what a find!

I enjoy your blog so much. I should say it more often, but you make me buy weird things, understand? Much love.
