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.

The swallows are back in our neighborhood building nests and swooping about. That of course has wings on my mind, mechanical wings.

The previews for a certain upcoming movie have me in the mood for over the top costuming and damn, there's a lot of it to find.

Pretty, Pretty, Shiny, Shiny 
As you might be aware I like purple and I adore the color changing of heliotrope glass and crystal.

Such great, organic feeling designs. They are totally affordable and I think I might need one myself.

Ivory Spring 
Personally I avoid the lighter shades because I have kids and half my cats are black, but man are these pretty. The lighter shade of steampunk.

And Heroes 
I'd like to say that this was inspired by current cinema excitement, but that would be a lie. It was just a happy search accident and nothing more.

My Bloomers 
In truth I wish there were more occasions to wear my bloomers about town, but alas I get to save them for the occasional listing photo.
