They've created a monster

I can't believe that Looklet is so entertaining. FYI, it's best to access the site with Internet Explorer*. Here's another look I made.

I called it "Yes, Scarecrow" because from the back, the hat made her look like the Scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz.

Strings Attached

Soft as your touch, blue as my tears.

The most important thing you will read this week!!!

I know this much about love,you need to take a chance to expose your heart and soul to the point where it is naked to another. You need to risk everything in order to experience love completely,you risk more by not risking anything. The little things that lay hidden deep inside our hearts are treasures,emotional God given treasures we're afraid to give up because we are all afraid of being emotionally robbed.

Illustration by the lovely Baby Kitten Love "Daniel Von Braun"

"The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them -- words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst I think. When the secret stays locked within not for a want of a teller but for an ear."
- Stephen King

Take on Me

Morten Harket lead singer of the 80's band A-Ha is a god with the voice of an angel. I found this acoustic version of the once synth pop song "Take on Me",it brought tears to my eyes. When their original video came out I was just a girl around 7 and this video was romance to me. It still is...I won't let romance die no matter what let downs life throws my way! After all the girl in the video went on to be Morten's first serious girlfriend which I'm sure lead to the firs heart break. Time has a way of touching our hearts and taking away whats precious only to give us new beautiful moments.

If you are not a child of that time and if you're reading this blog you're most likely a sassy young European girl with butterflies in your heart and bows in your hair...Well then I simply suggest you watch the original love story here...

Talking away
I don't know what I'm to say
I'll say it anyway
today's another day to find you
Shying away
I'll be coming for you love O.K.

Take on me
Take me on
I'll be gone
in a day or two

So needless to say I'm odds and ends
But that's me, stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is O.K.
Say after me
It's no better to be safe than sorry.

Take on me
Take me on
I'll be gone
in a day or two.

The things that you say
Is it live or just to play
My worries away
You're all the things I've got to remember
You shying away
I'll be coming for you anyway

Take on me
Take me on
I'll be gone
in a day or two

Outfits in store range from $100 - 390 and permitions despite the sign at the front of the store claiming everything is no transfer are inconsistent with some outfits being no transfer, others transferable, and still some being a mix of the two permition options. There are several $25 lingerie sets that are transferable as well as vendors from D-Factor in store which vendors display that the items are transferable. So look before you purchase items. There's also a may day hunt going on and the store has many may poles for sale for $1 as well as a couple of $1 and free outfits. (Lucky Chair - F -

The Feel... of Cotton

I'm kicking myself for being so susceptible to advertising. I can't help it -- it's my second love. And who doesn't love Zooey Deschanel?

This has to be one of the most catchy jingles I've ever heard. I get all excited when I hear the opening notes on TV. Then again, I've always liked the cotton jingle.

Here's another by Jazmin Sullivan.

Both pretty good.

Happy hunting. ^^

Victorian Robotics?

You know, I'm not the biggest fan of steampunk, but I really do love these pictures I found in the New York Times.

Then again, maybe I like steampunk more than I thought. The Prestige (not really steampunk, but the period is right) and The Extraordinary League of Gentlemen
are two favorites of mine.

(Also, I want this car. Yow.)

When it comes to decor, though, my tastes run to the opposite of this subculture: I prefer old shapes made in newer materials (like the Ghost chair by Philippe Starck), as opposed to new things made to look old.

All photos from, of course.
