Creepsuela Switchletto Hats

Creepsuela Switchletto on Etsy makes these beautiful hats! They come in lots of different patterns and styles from leopard print, plaid and striped to smooth velvet and they would probably top off a steampunk outfit quite wonderfully.

Society in Decline

Retro Thing made a really great post about this flickr photo collection called Society in Decline Project: Intrastate Commerce that has tons of really great vintage signs! I can't get enough of these awesome neon signs!

Skel-E-Flamingo Lawn Ornaments

These skeleton flamingos are some pretty wicked lawn decorations! Look at those skulls! Skel-E-Flamingos would make a wonderful spooky and artsy conversation piece around your home or hanging around for your next garden party or barbeque.

Beautiful Watermelon Carving

These watermelons are carved so beautifully! Since I'm used to seeing artistically carved pumpkins, it's very strange to see watermelons carved in a similar way. I love the sense of depth that can be achieved by using the rind and the flesh to your advantage. You can see the entire collection by starting here and clicking your way through.

Muppet Eyeglasses Holder Crochetalong

This idea is wonderfully quirky and well executed!
Once you get over the fact that your eyeglasses are being guarded by a bodiless muppet head, this tutorial really is the most awesome thing and Dr. Bunsen Honeydew is very underrated. I can't think of a better muppet for the job of taking care of my glasses.

I Love Your Blog Award

I received this award from the creator of a blog that I adore! Thank you so much, Zakka Life. I'm thrilled and flattered.

I'm giving this award to (in no particular order):

1. Lottery Girl
2. Endangered Truth
3. This Makes My Day
4. Fusion Through Design
5. Coin of the Day
6. The Great Red Hope
7. Nothin But Nett

To the award recipients and Zakka Life:
Thank you for making the blogs that I love so much.

Now, the rules of this award seem to be that if you receive this award you have to post 7 facts about yourself, name 7 other blogs to pass the award to and credit the person you received the award from. I'm not really a stickler for rules so you can go ahead and do those things if you like (and it would be great if you did)... OR you can just take away the warm feeling that I hope you get from receiving this award, cuddle it close and say "WOW, someone really loves my blog!".

Since I'm playing I guess I should fulfill the other end of my obligation.

Facts about me:

1. I made granola yesterday!

I used the recipe found here. I did add a wee bit of cinnamon and vanilla for added flavor.
2. I ate some of that granola for breakfast.
3. I recently dug out my SNES and I've been playing The Addam's Family. I forgot how much fun this game was/is.
4. I bought a bunch of supplies for making artistic bento box lunches a while ago and have yet to use them to make a single one. That's a huge shame!
5. I'm almost finished watching the last season of The West Wing. I've been watching the series for so long that I've gotten used to having it available whenever I want to watch something new (to me).
6. I watch a lot of cartoons while I'm doing things online. Actually, I hardly ever look up from what I'm doing so I should say that I listen to a lot of cartoons (and sometimes CNN).
7. I've been listening to this song almost all day long. This one is also quite good.

So, there you have it. Thanks again for the award, Zakka Life! This was a lot of fun. :)

Donkey Kong Jenga

I wasn't really into Jenga when I was a kid. I mean, I'm sure I played it with friends a few times and it was probably okay but THIS would have made it much more appealing to me.
This is Donkey Kong Jenga!
