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.

Again, I lament having anywhere to wear such finery. It's a good thing I have a talent for window shopping.

Wow, right? Be sure to visit the whole shop too, because it is full of more goodness and read their stories at The Steam Emporium.

A future invented in the past that never will be, reinvented by the present with full knowledge of that fact, nice.

I just love the rawness of these designs. The gorgeous stones don't hurt either.

Such A Doll

A Dark, Dark Doll
Please file this under the 'darkly beautiful' heading. Oh, how I wish I'd had these sitting on my shelf as a child...I'm sure they wouldn't have given me nightmares or anything.

Circled & Caged

This was another collection inspired by the finding of one awesome piece. Lucky for me, there were plenty of other awesome pieces to fit the theme, cages and portholes.
