Make a Wish Sunday ....

Well, I, for one, wish to be shopping in this exquisite place. I have no idea where it is. But it looks like I need to spend several hours here.
Have you heard the news?! Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist has announced the 2010 Mad Tea Party event! Click on image to get more information and to find out how to sign up to participate.

Elvis and his father, Vernon in 1956. Really, Elvis. We were all skinny in 1956. I wish I still was.
I had no idea that prostitutes were so fond of cupcakes..

Doesn't this look like a totally completely absolutely positively incredible place to shop for trash and flash and stocking stuffers?!

Well, I told you I had made ham salad ... so I was going to make a few Day-of-the-Dead-Ham-Can shrines. Here are the pics. I'll list them in my Etsy shop later today.
Isn't this beautiful fabric? It's called Evening in Paris, and is by Karen Harvey Cox of A Scrapbook of Inspiration. Click on the image to see this - and other fabrics available from Spoonflower by Karen.
Why? Who cares! It's a fabulous photograph!

Just a little bit of royalty for the day ...

Punctuation is so important. Dear, It's Paul Bunyan and his blue ox, Babe. Not Paul Bunyan, the blue ox babe.

I have some favorite magazines. Some of them printed on lovely paper with lavish photo spreads. But, I wish just one of them arrived in a gilded, embossed leather cover!
I know that many of you do wedding artwork - and make wedding cards, etc. So, when I found this romantic and beautifully detailed painting, I thought it should be shared with you so you can use it in your pieces, if you would like. Just click on it to get a nice big clear image and save it to your computer.

Tell the truth. Does anything speak of Eastern gods and goddesses more than a trio of Ziegfeld girls?

La modes de la 19ème siècle ... from Godey's Lady's Book. Although these appear to be photos, they are actually marvelously detailed engravings. Godey's Lady's Book was THE magazine for the cultured woman. It was the avenue by which she learned about the latest fashions, home decorating trends, and literature from the continent.

I wish this lovely sculpture was sitting in my living room! I love the idea of the couple waltzing at the foot of that exquisitely graceful staircase. It absolutely captivates my imagination - and inspires me to make things! This (and many other delightful finds, including the shop at the top of this post!) can be found at E-Mag Deco. The blog is in French - but the photos are universal!

No matter how these boys' mother decked them out in velvet and ruffles and lacy collars, she couldn't really get rid of the slyness in their eyes, could she?

So much style, so little to say ...

From Habitually Chic, comes this charming coy statue peeking out around the corner of the hedges. It would be a marvelous surprise to come upon her on a morning walk.

Polka dot bikini - $29. Pitcher of beer to get her this drunk - $10. Watching your mom strut herself in a redneck bar - Priceless.

Wouldn't this make a wonderful border around a child's room?

Have you tried the lovely new shades from Stepford Cosmetics?
Okay, whoever came up with this brilliant idea for an international symbol for "drowning" really should have asked a few opinions before having the signs made up.

It would seem that joke post cards are hardly a new thing!

Well, I'm off to do a little work in the studio ... I wish I had more time! Thanks for stopping by and spending a few minutes. I hope you found some heavenly items - and some devilish ones, too! Be sure to stop by in the next day or two for a new contest and giveaway!
Now go make something beautiful!
