Thrift Store Thursday

Cats are the focus of this weeks Thrift Store finds!  Cat people rejoice!  That is, if you like freaky cats you would avoid on the street if they were actual flesh and fur rather than ceramic.  Enjoy!

Cat Nap
I'm not the only one who hates waking up.  Mad cat hates being woken, almost as much as he hates your face.

Pet me Cat
This cats body language says, "Pet me," but I have a feeling it will scratch your eyes out if you try.

Demon Cat
Maybe this ceramic piece would he cute if it had pupils, and not evil minions.

Voluptuous Cat
This curvy cat is just adorable! The least evil thing I found to post this week!  Fat bottomed girls you make the rockin' world go round.

Trying out new Photography

What do you think? This is my new deer magnet that I have been playing around with in my light box. I think it's time to spice up my Etsy item photos. So long glaring white backgrounds!

Thrift Store Thursday

An assortment of cute, ridiculous, and frightening finds from a thrift store.  Ready, set, go!

This vintage chatterbox is just plain cute.  I'm not sure what gender it is, presumably male 'cause it's not wearing pink.  It must be fun to chat for hours about useless cr*p such as mud pies and worms, like news commentators do!

Father Time Tree?
It's a tree.  It's a man.  It's frightening!  I don't understand the purpose of this homeless man's face peeking out through a pine tree.  That best not be Santa. Nightmares.

Long Doll
It's a doll.  It's long.

Scary Teddy Jar
Who in their right mind came up with this?  I usually love teddy bears, but this? Adding a pretty blue bow around it's neck does nothing to soften the horror.

The fact that it's a cookie jar adds to its spookiness. You have to decapitate the thing to get your snickerdoodle.  A good incentive to avoid the sweets?

Scary Teddy Detail
Look away!

Dreamy Dioramas

I snapped these pics at a local fair not to long ago.  These dioramas are all incredibly well crafted, and there is a remarkable attention to detail. Just being detailed miniatures is an accomplishment in it's own right, but the styling of these sets really ups the ante and sets these mini spaces apart.

Old World Cafe
Given enough distance, this diorama looks startlingly real.  Even an air of gloom hangs over this sadly deserted cafe.

Country Kitchen
This photo is rather stalker-ish.  It's taken from a miniature Peeping Tom's perspective, from outside, pressed up against the window glass. Adorable!

My favorite detail is the chicken cookie jar and the parrot.  Birds...who can resist their kitschy and/or exotic charms?

Lux Flat
This is the most fabulous diorama, EVER! The luxury is enviable, and I'm willing to bet the person who made this resides in a hovel and lives vicariously through that madame.

Scary Carnival
This circus is B-A-N-A-N-A-S!  I dunno about you, but popcorn from a kangaroo vendor, no thank you!    And let's see, I can spot a drunken clown sitting on a turtle, and chimps on the might as well be a scene from It.
