|See The Deluxe Transitive Vampire? This is the funniest grammar book in the world because it employs examples like this: "The sandman, in cahoots with the vampire, lays the subject to rest" (infinitive phrase used as adverb)|
And a bunch of weird stuff about disgraced debutantes, clandestine midnight meetings at the gazebo, and lamias. Yay!
The Clayflower22 shop was the first etsy store that moved me. I first saw it in 2006, and her work is so unique, I couldn't forget it. Clayflower22 makes planters that look like doll heads, fancy ladies, and eerie hybrids of babies and animals. One planter features a lady's head atop a chicken's body. It's unsettling, but there is just something about it. The hybrids are strange, but they would be perfectly at home in a cabinet of curiosities. Hmm. Time to start curating a cabinet of curiosities.
You've got to see these!

They look retro because they ARE retro. Planters shaped like ladies' heads were popular in the mid-20th century. If you'd rather purchase an older piece, these are some of my favorites available now.
This pretty lady from VintageInspiredVt has the same clean white porcelain look as Clayflower22's pieces.
For something more vintage Nashville, consider this cowgirl planter from dustylorraine.
I'm out, y'all. Time to continue exploring Twin Peaks with Special Agent Cooper. I'm developing a huge crush on him. And my boyfriend wants to BE him, I think. A classic London Fog trench coat may be in his future.Keith, are you reading this?!
