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.

Silver and Bones
All pieces by MarthaRotten
I ran across this shop yesterday and then I saw it again and again featured all over the place. That almost stopped me from featuring too, but the stuff is too awesome.

In Your Soul
Yes, my intent was to get this song stuck in your head because it's been stuck in mine since I found the first birdhouse. Also, I wish our neighborhood birds were small enough to use these.

Your Best Foot

I don't *love* shoes, but I do like them enough to want more fancy ones.

Kick Start It

Normally I just present these kickstarter projects without comment, but today I thought I'd offer my personal recommendation that you support this one. I have the first arc of this story. The art and the story are great and I threw my support in without hesitation.

And Awesome All Over
As awesome as I think these finds are I feel I must rant about how many etsy sellers claim their work is steampunk or goth when it most certainly is not. Man do I have to wade through tons of crap.

Dane Goldbloom

I just feel in love with this series of skull paintings so of course you get to see them all!
From the Artist:
I grew up in a very productive and artistic environment. At long as I can remember my father was very involved in the Seattle art community and I have always been inspired by his creative drive in granite sculpture( goldbloomart.com/3/artist.asp?ArtistID=22174&Akey=EGW9FJRW)
Channeling his artistic spirit over the years I've enjoyed creating in general and recently began exploring the mysterious world of oil paint. Previously my artistic ventures have been purely personal but recently I've realized that art if not shared with others is selfish. I've always been fascinated by horror in general and even as a child delightfully enjoyed nightmares. I find inspiration through dark and macabre themed imagery.

Sometimes a nice screen printed item is really like wearing a piece of art. It's definitely more interesting than a plain tee.

Doesn't matter what small treasure you have, I found a box to hide it in that is a treasure itself.

While I prefer to wear cool silver, I adore the look of warmer metals sculpted into rings.
