I'm going to be real fancy soon!

An other fabulous treasure from Lovedtodeath

"Victorian Gothic Taxidermy Jewelry Mouse Foot Vintage Curio Locket Necklace"

This is a Genuine Taxidermy mouse foot set in a vintage Victorian inspired clear front locket. The foot is resting on a burgandy velvet pillow and is adorned with a swavorski "diamond" ring. The locket is very ornate and is 1 1/4" tall x 1/2" wide. It hangs from an 18" 14K gold filled link chain. It has a gold filled clasp closure and the Loved To Death garnet glass blood drop dangle down the back.

Simply good: Sidney Pink

I will cut someone for this print

Luke Stephenson takes beautiful photographs of many things but his "budgies" series is my present obsession.
I would love to have an entire wall of these:

I'm upset that I missed the chance to pick up an affordable medium sized Yellow Canary Print #1 from 20x200 this summer. The only print still available is 30"x40" and $2000!

Great Book:25 Under 25 Up-and-Coming American Photographers Vol. 1

I don't typically get that interested in photography books anymore but 25 under 25 caught my eye. I was especially drawn to fellow MassArt alumns work kathryn parker almanas. Her still-lifes are gorgeous and I'm crazy about the pastry series.
