Dark Beauty

Take a gander at these wonderful photos taken by Evelyn Murphy (makeup by our friend, Tiinia Auler) featuring Mom’s custom horn headpiece. At least one photo from this shoot will be featured in Dark Beauty Magazine – so exciting!

Weird Wednesday – Featured on Offbeat Bride!

I was so excited to wake up this morning to a link on our friend Tiinia’s Facebook page saying that her wedding has been featured on Offbeat Bride! First, I was excited because their wedding was so unique; I knew it had to end up on the site at some point. Second, I was excited, because Mom and I were vendors for the wedding!

We met Tiinia at the Etsy817 (our really cool Etsy team) Handmade Holidays arts and crafts show last year. She was the makeup artist for the fashion show, which featured some of our work. (Click on Tiinia’s name above to visit her Facebook business page and see examples of her amazing talent for makeup!) Afterward, she stopped by our booth and we all chatted for a while. The subject of her pending nuptials came up, and she bought one of my bracelets to wear for the big day. Then we talked a little about what she wanted for her bridesmaids, and Mom told her that she would love to make the fascinators she wanted.

Fast forward to a few months later, and we’d not only become friends with Tiinia, we’d become friends with a couple of her friends who often model for her, too. They came over to raid Mom’s closet of vintage goodies to borrow for photo shoots, and the more we got to know them, the more we liked them! We had so much fun brainstorming once we learned more about the wedding, and making the vision she had come to life. Mom ended up making all of the fascinators (including the bridal veil!) the bridesmaids’ feather fans, and the boutonnieres, and, as well as making the bride’s bracelet, I also embroidered her vintage handkerchief with their monogram. We were happy to attend their Friday the 13th wedding at the 13th Street Morgue haunted house grounds where Tiinia, her husband, Kevin, and many of their friends work year round to keep the place in perfect shape for the haunting season. It was definitely the weirdest, coolest wedding I’ve ever been to, and we had a blast the entire time.

Friday’s Favorites – Strange Strange Strange

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Friday! Fridays have a little more meaning than usual (working from home tends to blur the days) now that Tom doesn’t have classes on Fridays. It’s like a 3 day weekend every weekend – pretty awesome.

Here’s a few favorites under our JuJu Eyeball shop name:

Pac Man Ghost Felted Sculpture by fibrous

 

Hermand Munster Small Canvas Pastel by lollyart

 

Steampunk Art Print - Hot Air Balloon Steamship by thefiligree

Looking at them, it all has a very dreamlike quality – slightly blurry edges or light blues, greens, greys … makes me sleepy!

Here’s to the end of a week!

Tuesday’s Treasure – Love Is In The Air

Besides the humidity, love fills the air in springtime. There are marriage proposals, endless spring metaphors inserted into love poems, and all kinds of events where strangers meet under sun, rain, or stars and fall in love. We were lucky enough to be featured in this romantic, springy treasury this week:

A Fine Romance by lizziejoedesigns

I’m in love with the image of hot air balloons in Paris. 🙂 Click to see the beautiful items!

Treasure Tuesday: Home Again, Home Again …

Tom and I are back from Louisiana! It’s been an interesting weekend – we visited with family, Mom’s AC went out, and when we got home we watched “Invictus” (which is great, btw) and found out that our vintage beret was featured on the front page of Etsy in this beautiful treasury by waterrose:

Mystery Surrounds Her

 What a great way to end our trip! This is the first time anything from the shop has been featured on the front page, and we’re so excited.

Now it’s time to do some last minute shopping before school starts on Thursday, and get back to the work schedule.
