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.

Dark And Sultry1. Noir Romance Gown - noirvoile
Effortlessly elegant, classy and mysterious. The Noir lady has a secret and she's just not telling. You could ask, but why, when she looks so fabulous what else do you need to know.

2. All The Kings Horses Carousel - Fine Art Photography Print - SilverHorsePhotos
3. Merrily We Go (8x10) Fine Art Photograph - RetrospectPhoto
4. Merry Go Round - 5x5 Inch Print - ThisYearsGirl
I had originally collected these pieces for yet another feature inspired by American Gods. Then I decided that perhaps you were done with those and moved on. Fate however brought them back when yet again one of my daughter's school assignments synced up with Mr. Gaiman's book. She was to make a carousel for art class, hint taken Universe, hint taken.

2. Keyboard Mouse Combo - Antique looking Victorian Styling
3. iPhone - iPod Dock -Charger and Sync Station - Oak - Brass style V1
4. Apple iMac Custom Cover - Victorian Steampunk Antique Look -Old World Charm
All pieces by woodguy32
I generally go out of my way to not feature things that get featured over on etsy. Usually there is so little overlap in style that it's a non issue. However, when I spied woodguy32's work in a finds email, I broke my unwritten rule because you really should see this great Steampunk computer stuff.

3. ANCIENT ROMAN COIN necklace - LycheeKiss
4. Trellis Necklace with Vintage Coin and Freshwater Coin Pearl - hollylynne
That's right, I made a pun, what of it? And yes, coins are yet another theme from American Gods. What can I say, I get immersed in my reading and when I'm thinking of themes, well...it's just easy to go there.

2. Anansi, Two Bells, and a Broken Bird - cedarsong
3. ananse spider trickster print - munkie716
4. Statement ANANSI spider typewriter key necklace - TheObviousChild
Why, yes Anansi does appear in American Gods, but in a strange coincidence he was also the subject of my home schooled daughter's language arts class yesterday. I decided that it was a sign that the Spider god was due for his own feature.

It's Shiny & I'm A Crow1. Airplane engine World War II Lamp (Chrome Edition) - planepieces
2. Chrome Antler Rack - UnboxedHunter
3. Chrome Dome - ScottHamric
4. Meadow of Mirrors - ChromeSculptures
I don't think that it's much of a secret that I'm not really a brown and brass sort of gal. I admit it looks fine, but I prefer silvers and black. Combine those with a flair for the retro, the anachronistic, the odd, well then I'm sold.

Rabbit...No, Bunny1. New Moon Vampire Bunny Rabbit - laurelszoo
2. The Vampire Bunny Brigade Zine - zombieromance
3. Vampire Bunny - binarywinter
4. Rabbits as Monsters--Dracula - malbers2
I'm not going to lie, I totally loved Bunnicula as a kid so when Laurelszoo suggested her little bunny for the Wunderkammer I bit. I was shocked at the number of rabbit vampires I had to chose from...I'm a little disturbed actually. Why have we made so many innocent bunnies into blood suckers?

And Checkmate1. Steampunk steel hardware (nuts and bolts) chess set and chess board - sitarah
2. CHESS- Stability vs. Instability (chess board and set) - MellingtonCartwright
3. Paper Mache Chess Set - Collector's Item - Scafidi
4. a Cthulhu Mythos chess set - MonstersDomesticated
I stumbled upon the Stability vs. Instability set while looking for sets of an entirely different nature and I was smitten. Then I thought there was no way there would be enough chess sets to choose from to make a truly 'wunderkammer' feature. I was wrong.

2. Ornate USB, Cartouche, Steampunk USB, Victoriana - cerriousdesign
3. Victoriana black leather cut out mask - TomBanwell
4. Long Crest Necklace - Ferociter
This theme was inspired by stumbling upon this new mask design by Tom Banwell, but then I found so many new things with a Victoriana theme that it became difficult to narrow it down. Oh and don't anyone buy that flower pin because I think that I might need it.
