You are Now Entering the Twilight Zone!

You're traveling through another dimension – a dimension not only of sight and sound but of handmade. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's a signpost up ahead: your next stop: the Twilight Zone!

Gosh I just love this show, I always look forward to New Years Day, when they place back to back episodes. I've been inspired and decided to make my etsy treasury based on this fabulous series. I've used some mysterious imagery from some of my favorite episodes and the original movie.

1) This interactive vintage-inspired folk art piece entitled, The Original Devil Boy, reminds me of the famous episode "The Howling Man". This piece is truly stunning, hand carved, painted and signed created by non other than Dave from DB Collectibles.

2) This red  Jetsetter Vintage Travel Alarm Clock just caught my eye, totally 70s and has beautiful deco style numbers. It reminds of the episode "Where is Everybody?", which happens to be the first episode of the series. Stop on by Aviary where you can get vintage delights for you and your home.

3) "What you're looking at could be the end of a particularly terrifying nightmare. It isn't. It's the beginning. Introducing Mr. John Valentine, air traveller. His destination: the Twilight Zone." Who can't forget Twilight Zone, the movie; produced by Steven Spielberg in 1983. These stunning Vintage Steampunk Button Cufflinks by 19 Moons truly reminds me of the fourth segment of the movie which featured John Lithgow, who plays a stressed out airline passenger who has suffers from anxiety, claustrophobia and acrophobia. His nightmare features a hideous gremlin who is damaging the wing of the plane. William Shatner also played the original character in the episode 3 called "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet".
