Wee finds: Spooky stuff
I may have taken a maternity hiatus from blogging earlier this year, but I’ve been keeping track of stuff I like on Pinterest. Are you on Pinterest yet? I’m a wee bit obsessed. It’s a super-easy way to file all the images you like for reference – and I like seeing the overall theme (colours, textures, objects) emerge on my pinboards.
For Halloween this year, wee skulls and ghosties have emerged as a (no-brainer) theme, and I’m particularly taken by these crocheted finger puppet skulls by Dewey Decimal Crafts. There’s something extremely creepy about the fine thread, delicate stitches and teeny tiny grinning mouths. Eeeeeek. They also make skull ornaments and for a touch of Damien Hirst-like bling, there is the sparkling crocheted skull for US$18.
Here are some more wee skulls from my Pinterest board. I found the best skulls on Candy Stripe Cloud‘s boards:
Clockwise from top left: Day of the Dead rockabilly skull brooch, US$16, from The Dolly City Rocker’s Etsy shop; Skull quilt from Quiltsryche; Skull bedroom from Weekday Carnival; and skulls of unknown origin.
Here are some wee ghosties, too.
Tell me, are you on Pinterest? Do you have any plans for Halloween?
