Skull candy

I’m such a sucker for skulls. I’ve recently acquired quite a lot of skull items, such as these glittery skull Christmas ornaments today that were marked down to €1.50, which I immediately had to have. I don’t think they’re strictly Christmassy, but that’s just me. They’re about to seriously jazz up some door handles around my apartment.

This skull and bone ice mold marked down to €1 which was still straggling behind after Halloween, so I had to pick it up. It was so lonely out there. Welcome to my freezer.

Teeny skull skewers. Perfect served up in a glass for finger food entertainment. 
And this is something I want badly – Crystal Head Vodka by Dan Aykroyd and John Alexander. I can count the many ways in how awesome this is. Hell yes I would just buy it for the bottle. Except it’s not available here in Ireland. Fuuuuuuuuu.

The living dead

I had seen him before many times without it registering with me, but today I found out who Rick Genest is {aka, Zombie Boy}. I thought it quite apt it happened on Halloween morning. Additional bonus – he’s Canadian.

You may recognize Rick from Lady Gaga’s ‘Born this Way‘ video, where he shot to international fame earlier this year. 
Beautifully haunting images – 1, 2 and 3, 4, and 5

I want it now – fine bone china

Yesterday morning while I was catching up on my blog feed, I came across something that caught my breath. You know, that moment you see something truly amazing, and your heart kind of stops for a second, you take a sharp intake of breath, and you freeze for a moment? Well I had that kind of a moment when I saw Melody Rose’s stall at the 1st Ever Renegade Craft Fair – London post on poppytalk
I don’t want these. I need them. 
I really have to refrain from including every image. They are all amazing and sum up exactly what I love – a strong contrast between old and new, delicate and hard core. I’m thinking, wedding registry? Hell yes.
