Friday Favorites 8.16.13

It's been a while since I've done a Friday Favorites post, so here you go. The past week has been incredible. Zack got home on Tuesday after being on tour for two weeks, and I'm ridiculously excited for him to be back. I got an old cruiser bike while he was gone, and he's going to help me refurbish it! I ordered some new parts and accessories for it, so as soon as those get here we can get to work and I'll hopefully be able to start riding before the weather turns. My best friend moved back to town last weekend, so I no longer have to drive an hour to see her. Basically, life is just really great right now.

So in love with these hand-painted Child's Play sneakers by Seriously Savage on Etsy.

Z and I will be celebrating our two year anniversary next week, and I still have no idea what I'm going to get him to commemorate the occasion. I usually try to get him something to add to his collection of oddities, and I know he'd absolutely love this little duckling. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure there's no possible way it would get here from Ireland in time, and I'm pretty sure it's not cruelty-free (I won't buy from artists who kill their creations, no matter how much I love my boyfriend).. *le sigh* The search continues...

Perhaps the coolest looking turn table ever.

Ermmm guys... it's a ukulele case shaped like a coffin. Do you realize how badly I need this? Probably not, because I don't think I've ever mentioned my ukulele love on the blog before, but let's just say that shit runs deep. I've been thinking about posting some videos of punk rock uke covers I've done, but I don't know. Would you guys want to hear/see that?

Vaughn Pinpin (aka Hat Boy) is one of my favorite illustrators, and he's currently working on a series of drawings that imagine what Pokemon would look like if they were drawn by Tim Burton. It's rad, and you should check out his Tumblr to see the rest! 

This needle felted tarantula is so cute! I really want to get one for my nephew (and maybe one for my niece, after she gets here in a few weeks). Then we can have spider play dates!

These anatomical pillows by Neverland Dream on Society 6 need to be on my bed like yesterday.

Poison Apple Apothecary has a pretty nifty collection of body butters they creatively call embalming creams. They also have tons of perfumes to choose from! This cream's fragrance is called "Ghost of the Knoxville Girl," and I can't wait to try it out!
I really want to get this nifty pin set to decorate my new book bag!

  1. I just saw that pin set a week or so ago and fell in love! As if I don't have enough lying around the house already, I'm so tempted to order those ones. Also, those Child's Play shoes are rad. Childhood memories, right there.

  2. That pin set is quite funny, actually :-)

  3. LOVE that turn table!
