🖤English prose, candle quartz, and antique curiosities. My favorite things in one photograph against the backdrop of an early 1900’s French workbook and dried rose leaves. Do you have an affinity for olden times, pale crystals, or the written word? I often use my intense nostalgia and antique collection to tap into my magickal well. There is power in things that have been touched by a hundred hands.🖤

• Is it blindness Or Ignorance That allows us to oversee The smallest of details within us. The moments. The memories. The times. An anthology Of both the past and present All wrapped up In magic and dreams. Where consciously nothing Is ever as it seems. Do we STOP. Inhale. Breathe in those overlooked moments. Then cast a decision. To take recognition Of what it is in each day That gets swept up. Dispersed and lost along the way. Exhaling To breath out each true reflection of you....🖤 • • •

Last night while reading, I started hearing strange noises coming from the book shelf. Curious as to whether it was an insect or something, I slowly approached to investigate. As I got to the shelf, there was nothing in plain sight, though I could still hear a sound. I paused and placed my ear closer to see if I could pinpoint the source. The noise stopped suddenly, but as I waited in silence, it started up again and I could tell that it was coming from behind the stack of books. I quickly pulled out one of the books to find this small little creature standing in front of me! After just a second of taking in the whole scene, I realized that this was a house Brownie that was sorting through all its trinkets that it had collected! . If you aren't familiar, house brownies are small creatures that live in the corners and crevices of your home that help around the house doing small chores and tasks. Have you ever wondered how a shelf has stayed so dust-free, or how your collection of buttons suddenly appeared color coded and organized? You probably have a house brownie living with you! If you do notice that you have things like this happening in your home, it’s nice to leave out some food to thank them for their assistance. Small bites of cheese or half a cookie will suffice. While some of the tasks they perform may seem silly or unimportant to you, I assure you your house brownie takes it very seriously. If you neglect them, it will turn into a Boggart and will quickly evolve from a helpful presence to an absolute menace! . This is Tibbly and he has a fascinating collection of doodads, including a small potion, a few gears, a marble, a thimble and a couple of tools he wears on a tool belt he fashioned for himself! Do you have a Brownie in your home? How do they help around the house? ✨🔨 . . . . . #fantasycreature #fantasyart #spiderwick #magicalcreatures #mixedmediaart #mixedmediaartist #fantasy #mythicalcreature #folklore #cabinetofcuriosities #fantasyartwork #creaturedesign #fantasyartist #faeries #fairies #arttoy #artdoll #toyartistry #creatureart #kawaii #curios #characterdesign

For two years Tigris fought against me by knocking over what used to be on this shelf. I finally gave up. She’s allowing the books to stay as part of a truce. For some reason I’m trusting her with my little 100+ year old book 😐🤞 . . . #catsofcolumbus #catsofinsta #instacats #tiger #tigris #decor #decorations #curios #curiosities #mycatownseverything #catproblems #shelves #bookshelf

This necklace was made by taking a mould of a real jackdaw claw and casting it in solid silver. The level of detail retained is just beautiful 👌🏼 but don't worry, no birds were hurt to make this, Mr Jackdaw passed away of natural causes and his footprint has now be immortalised! . . . . #campfireandcompass #jackdaw #necklace #oddities #curios #taxidermy #animals #gothic #jewellery #witch #wildwoman #unisexjewellery #occult #solitarywitch #nature #circleoflife #weird #morbid #handmade #notts #corvid #claw

Pediophobia is the unwarranted and persistent fear or worry of dolls. It’s a sub phobia of automatonphobia, which is the fear of all unreal but life like humanoid objects such as mannequins, ventriloquist dummies, wax dolls, etc. Some believe that the fear of dolls might be rooted in fears or trauma that occurred during childhood. I don’t believe I suffer from pediophobia but I’m not going to start letting creepy dolls hang around my bedroom either.. • The dolls pictured are Red Cross dolls from the 1940’s displayed in the North Louisiana Military Museum. I found them a touch creepy but maybe that’s just me. 🤷‍♂️😊.. • • • • • #oddballu #oddballuniversity #creepydolls #pediophobia #spooky #roadsideamerica #roadsideattraction #spookydolls #haunteddolls #creepy #phobia #whatareyouscaredof #dolls #collectorsdolls #curios #wunderkammer #cabinetofcuriosities #oddities #stangethings #chucky #haunted #phobias #fearofdolls #deadeyes #weirdusa #weirddolls #roadsideusa

Handloom Peruvian rugs, each unique, are now in stock. They are thick enough for floors and still soft enough for sofas and throwing over beds. Stunning colours and patterns. The wool in these rugs is first handspun on a drop spindle and then woven in two halves (due to being woven on a small back-strap loom), the halves are then then stitched together. These can be easily separated to make runners too, if preferred. Super versatile beauties ❤️💛💚💙💜 #theclockworkcrowhastings #theclockworkcrowshop #theclockworkcrow #antiques #interiors #georgestreethastings #hastingsantiques #hastingsgifts #hastingsoldtown #oldtownhastings #curios #rugs #colourful #peruviantextiles #peruvianrugs #peruvianfrazadas #blankets #throws

"Kids are born scientists. They’re always turning over rocks and plucking petals off of flowers. They’re always doing things that by and large are destructive. That’s what exploration kind of is. If you take stuff apart, whether or not you know how to put it back together. This is what kids do. An adult scientist is a kid who never grew up. That’s what an adult scientist does.

I've completely fallen in love with the gorgeous aged industrial shelving unit at @atticusandwillow, along with practically everything else in this shop. Oh, the dangers of dropping off stock... When you're next in Lostwithiel make sure you pop in and see all that this beautiful shop has to offer! Every single item there is full of rustic charm and inspired by nature in some way. Each piece of furniture tells a beautiful story, salvedged and almost held in time, ready for its next chapter in life. The entire shop is adorned with houseplants, handmade textiles, keepsakes and artwork aplenty. The second half of the shop is home to @lostinbookshop - carefully curated and cherished books. There's fiction and natural history, rare books and curios, a childrens section, local authors and Cornish interest to name a few. Perfect. 🌿 --- #natalietoms #thickets_studio #cornishartist #wildlifeartist #natureartist #atticusandwillow #lostinbooks #lostwithiel #lovelostwithiel #justacard #supportsmallbusinesses #buylocal #rusticdecor #salvage #botanical #botanicalkeepsakes #shopindie #curios #houseplants #plants #natureinspired #natureart #cornishart #localstockist #inspiredbynature #lanlivery #cornwall #cornwalluk

The last supper painting in Cusco Cathedral. Jesus and his disciples share a final meal of guinea pig. Guinea pig were incredibly important to the ancient Inca and were a staple part of their diet. Marcos Zapata the indigenous artist who created this painting in 1753 was educated at a Spanish art school, where they were only allowed to paint things related to Christianity or Europe, and were not permitted to sign their works. Nonetheless, he and other artists still found ways to slip Incan iconography into their paintings. As well as the guinea pig, the purple drink that the disciples are drinking is not wine. Instead, it is a traditional Peruvian drink, chicha, which is made from maize. Judas with darker skin on the bottom right also resembles the conquistador Francisco Pizarro, who killed the Inca king and as you can imagine was not very popular with indigenous people of Peru. #cusco #peru #cathedral #lastsupper #jesus #guineapig #inca #artist #incan #peruvian #culture #conquistadors #history #travel #atlasobscura #weird #quirky #travel #curios #southamerica #igtravel #travelgram #wanderlust #exploremore
