These Are a Few of My Favorite Things!

Cash rules everything around me, and when times are tough I rarely get the extra funds to buy something special for myself. But a girl can dream can't she! Today I thought I'd share some of my new favorite things, and also some of my new favorite sounds and renewed humor I currently heart.





















~ Handmade Masquerade Mask from Effigy, and magical and mysterious shop filled with imaginative masks for all occasions. I really love this particular mask because of the crackle porcelain finish and the primitive innocence of antique dolls. 




















~ Zipper, Development of. Cuff from Fanciful Devices, a steampunk zipper wrist cuff bracelet, that is super cool made with found objects and a perfect blend of warm aged colors from the industrial era.























~ You Were My Ship Scalloped Wall Plaque from Fables and Foxes, I find this illustration on the wood to be so lovely and the chest of the child is truly heartfelt and illustrative. I enjoy the wispy lines perturbing from what looks like the child's chest.























~ The Bear Necessities Earrings from Age Before Beauty, oh my, these truly reflect my childhood matched with vintage elegance. The earrings feature carved bone beads, mother of pearl beads and darling bears walking to their cave perhaps.























~ Depeche Mode: Sounds of the Universe, I am really enjoying their new album especially the song 'Corrupt' from True Blood, be sure to check out the music video, the dark electronic sounds blend well with cruel images of blood and love.


















~ Always Sunny In Philadelphia, tune in Thursday nights at 10pm on FX. One of the best shows ever, I'm so glad to see this show and Dexter starting back up, I've been waiting so long; was going through withdraws for a while there. The fifth season is filled with crudeness, controversy and is downright hilarious. Who doesn't love the green man?!!!

Sunny in Philadelphia is one of the best shows ever!!!
the one where D and Charlie "walk a mile" in the other's shoes was on last night and though it was 2:30 in the morning and i should have went to bed i stayed up and watched it again anyway.

can't wait for the new season. Dexter season 3 was okay but i hope it picks up again this season.

Wow! This is a real honor, as I have perused your blog and shop several times before. And to get my item actually and lovingly described--that is a first for me. Thanks for including my cuff. Now I'm off to check out the first shop- how gorgeous is that mask?

Let me just say...I've been to Jasper, Alabama and it's still stuck in the industrial age.....it's kinda scary.....but not in the bad way!

Awesome mask! And I love Sunny in Philadelphia, waiting to get the newest season!
