I finally made a Treasury on Etsy! I’d always wanted to but never bothered.

Well, inspiration struck at 4 a.m. the other morning. When I saw this pendant by CameraSHYphotography, I found my theme: The Eastern Shore.

I grew up on the Shore, also known as the Delmarva Peninsula. Let me know what you think of the Treasury! Clicky-clicky to see it.

Oh, and if you like Treasuries (I can look at them for hours), these three include some of my items on Etsy. Hurray!

I turned 30 on Thursday and celebrated with an antiques adventure. Yay! 

One of my favorite finds of the day:

I couldn’t resist the owl hanging from the handle. Even better, when I got home I realized the back has a message: “We all have our ups & downs.” AWESOME!

Happy weekend! 🙂

After I ate a mushroom omelette last week at a diner, the waitress left the bill on the table. This sounds like a boring story — but wait!

I looked down and saw “mushroom owl,” but it really said “mushroom oml” in her old-lady handwriting. My partner drew this up on the back of the placemat, and I knew I had to make it! Plushie fun. 🙂

The drawing that started it all.

This doesn’t fall under the flea market/antique store/old stuff category, but I don’t care. Could not resist sharing this:

Wow! A fetus cookie cutter?!

My friend the Saint and I have been discussing possibilities lately. Add an umbilical cord. Boom! Happy birthday cookies. Green fetus means zombie cookies, etc. 

Yum …

I’m kicking myself for not buying a postcard I saw earlier this year in an antiques store. A photo of a jail (can’t remember where) was on the front with the text “Wish You Were Here.” That was WEIRD.

But don’t fret, I’ve got another taste of weird for you this Monday.

"Hey, baby."

Found this, uh, gal at the Philly AIDS Thrift store on a trip there in the spring. Makes me think of “The Terminator.”

Now, I promise to post oddities other than mannequins, but how could I not share this?

{Thanks to Ains for the photo!}

Wow. Sometimes you don’t realize how much weird crap you find in one place until you look back on your photos from seven months ago …

Did I smudge my eyeliner?

Seven months ago, I was at a mall in Frackville, Pa. (I am not making this up. Frackville.) I was there with some friends to check out Black Diamond Antiques.

And I scored! Black Diamond was fantastic. Got a 1940s Royal typewriter, a little ashtray with a deer sitting on its ledge and a button pin that says something like, “Buckle up. Save Your Ugly Face.” 

We didn’t even make it through half of the store before it closed. So I really want to go back! So many treasures waiting to be discovered.  So many creepy things hidden away in dark corners …

Humpty Scary! Why is his head shaped like that? Why is one cheek punched in? Why is he grinning like he's going to kill me?

My pals and I figured this lady head must teach people how to shave. Maybe she was used at barber school? At first, I thought it was some weird serial killer thing, though. Yikes.

What do you think lady head No. 1 (pictured at the top of the post) is all about?

{Once again, thanks for the pics, Ainslie!}
