The Cushiony World of Pillows

814c3f99116514fdd353561828ec67c3

Whether it is to support your head while sleeping or make the couch look good, pillows are a common feature in any home with a bed and living room furniture. Though the ones we see are normally comprised of fabric envelope containing soft stuffing, some cultures have pillows made from wood or stone. Of course, the latter is due to standards of comfort, affordability, material availability. For instance, old Chinese pillows could be made of bamboo, jade, porcelain, wood, ceramic, and bronze. And they mostly didn’t resemble the pillows we’re used to. Now pillows have been around since 7,000 BCE in ancient Mesopotamia. Yet, only the wealthy used pillows which also served as a status symbol. The richer someone was, the more they owned. Aside from providing comfort to the head, they were also used to keep insects out of people’s hair, mouth, nose, and ears while sleeping. In ancient Egypt, wooden and stone pillows were mainly used for the deceased. As for softer pillows, well, they could be stuffed with reeds, feathers, or straw. Today, you’re more likely to find fillers of cotton stuffing, foam, synthetic fibers, latex, or down. As you see above, pillows can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, especially the decorative variety. And that’s where I come in. Some of the ones you’ll see will have a decorative case. Others, a unique shape. So for your reading pleasure, I give you a glimpse into the diverse world of cushiony pillows.

Still, the cameras may seem a bit old fashioned. But there’s something whimsical about them.

The High Flying World of Kites

85d402fba52dd8bcc0accc9dcc55a933

Since their invention in ancient China, kites have originally been used for measuring distances, testing the wind, lifting people, signaling, and communication for military operations. The earliest Chinese kites were often rectangular and flat as well as decorated with mythological motifs and legendary figures like dragons. Some were fitted with strings and whistles to make music while flying. But it was from China, kites were introduced to Cambodia, Japan, Thailand, India, Korea, the western world, and possibly Oceania. Though originally seen as a mere curiosity in Europe, kites would be used in the western world for scientific discovery and invention. Every American child learns about Ben Franklin and his famous kite experiment leading to the discovery of lightning as electricity and his invention of the lightning rod. Yet, the Wright brothers also used kites when developing the first airplane in the late 1800s. And they were used in for scientific purposes in meteorology, aeronautics, wireless communications, and even photography. But since the Wright brothers made their first flight and WWII, kites have mainly been used in recreation. However, all over the world you’ll find all kinds of kite festivals and competitions, especially in Asia. Nevertheless, despite living in the country, I wouldn’t be able to fly a kite in my back yard. Mostly because of safety issues with power lines. I mean the fact my back yard has a slew of power lines over it led to a bunch of trees being cut down for God’s sake, Anyway, kites come in all types, shapes, and sizes. You’ll find sport kites, power kites, weather kites, man-lifitng kites, fishing kites, underwater kites, and even fighting kites that could kill people. So for your reading pleasure, I give you a glimpse into the high flying world of kites.

  1. Sometimes a kite looks more magnificent on the inside.

Reminds me of one of those paper fortune teller contraptions. But I do love the colors.

2. On this kite, 6 hearts make a rainbow.

Then again, they’re not in rainbow order. But none of that matters to me.

3. Nothing dazzles in the sky like a rainbow 8 pointed star.

Yes, you can even have a kite star like this. Yes, I know the kites I showed so far have similar color schemes.

4. And you thought you’d never see a dragon fly.

Well, a different kind of dragon fly, anyway. But yes, they have kites of dragons. And this one is sensational.

5. Seems like this kite is made from hexagonal proportions.

Seems to be anything barely on this kite. But you have to admire looking at it in the sky.

6. At some festivals, it pays to go big and spectacular.

This kite is from a festival in Guatemala featuring these. Though you’d almost think it’s a parachute.

7. A large star should always get a decent lift.

Yes, these kites can get quite large as you can see. But I really love the colors which I think are perfect for Easter.

8. With a kite, you can send a rainbow soaring.

Yes, rainbows are a common theme in these. But I really like how this dances in the sky.

9. A butterfly kite should always spread its wings.

Because there’s no better spring kite than that of a butterfly. You also have to love the colors and tails.

10. A kite should always fly like a bird.

And there you have a bird kite. But there’s a bird following it. Wonder if it thinks it’s another bird or a decoy.

11. A beautiful kite comes with many layers of color.

Not sure what this kite is supposed to be. But maybe it’s built for function, not aesthetic effect.

12. This rainbow plane always flies high in the sky.

Once again, you see rainbows. This time on a plane kite which is somewhat charming.

13. This large star kite has all kinds of colors and tails.

This one goes by a 2 color diamond pattern as you can see. Some might find it tacky. But I find it wondrous.

14. A colorful ship looks even more magnificent in the air.

Yes, a rainbow ship always ventures seas of skies. Love it.

15. A large kite should be light enough to fly.

I guess this is a kite from the island nations. Looks quite pretty.

As you might read in my mythical creature series, you might find a rainbow chicken from the Philippines. Though this dazzles wonderfully.

17. You can put in a lot of different pictures in a kite.

You can find everything on here from mythical creatures to pop culture icons. You can even find Jimi Hendrix so excuse him while he kisses the sky.

18. You can fit a lot of triangles in a pyramid kite.

Yes, these kites do exist. Though I kind of wish this one had more color like the others.

19. Swirls always look better when up in the air.

I’ll probably feature many geometrically designed kites on this post. Though I really like the pentagon shape and tail on this.

20. Is that supposed to be a deity or a mythical creature.

Well, the art is squarely from Asia. But it’s also quite dazzling in the sky.

21. Some of these kites in the sky can have very long tails.

As you can see it’s an Asian design. Nevertheless, kite flying is very big in many Asian countries, especially in China and India.

22. Nothing says you can’t have a bunch of sharks on the line.

Well, as long as they’re flown from the air and are of different colors. Because shark hunting shouldn’t be encouraged.

23. A colorful kite should at least have wings and a tail.

Now this is a rather strange design. But I really like the tails and colors. Lovely.

24. With this kite, we can test whether a cow can actually jump over the moon.

Okay, it’s probably not possible. But fly this one in the sky, you might have people questioning their mental state.

25. There’s something strange about this kite.

This may be a traditional kite shape. The crayon face on this is creepy.

26. A blue owl kite is always a hoot.

Of course, owls have to serve as motifs as well. Since they’re birds of prey after all.

27. A Chinese dragon in the sky is a magnificent sight.

By the way, these Chinese dragon kites can be more than 100 feet long. Definitely not something I can fly where I live.

28. Sometimes kites are flown to denote special occasions.

You can easily tell what this kite’s celebrating. Give you a hint, it was held in Rio last summer.

29. Two cranes are sometimes better than one.

One has pink wings while the other has bluish green. But together they fit on a kite banner quite nicely.

30. And I thought I had to worry about sharks on the water.

Best you don’t fly this kite during your trip to Amity Island beach. This is especially when there’s a man eating shark at the shallows.

31. I’m sure nobody could resist a high flying rainbow fish.

Doesn’t hurt if it’s flown in the snow. Though I’d proceed with caution in winter weather.

32. Sometimes a Chinese dragon has to have a rainbow tail.

Yes, these Chinese dragons can be quite elaborate as you can see. Though I really love this one.

33. A kite like this looks quite foxy in the sky.

Guess this is what you’d call a fox kite. Has a nice cute little face to it.

34. A hexagonal design always impresses.

This one has 2 pegasus unicorns with rainbow wings. Love how its rods stick out.

Sure seeing these eyes might make you feel like you’re being watched. But I’m sure they don’t see anything.

Yet, I’m sure it’s able to fly. Though I’m not exactly sure how. Love the rainbow design.

Like some of the others, this is in an Asian design. But it has a nice, red, white, black, and blue pattern.

38. On some kite chains, you’ll find all kinds of shapes put together.

You have 2 diamonds in the front and a few other weird shapes in the back. And they’re all in different colors just the same.

39. Sometimes the sky is home to a monster kite or two.

And I think this one was conceived during a bad acid trip. How else could I explain the eye and fangs?

40. Now that is an interesting box kite.

Normally box kites usually have rectangles on each side. But this one takes the box kite to an artistic dimension.

41. Is this a fancy hypodermic needle or a fishing lure?

Maybe it’s a shape from Asian art or mythology. That can explain a lot.

42. Even a small kite can sport some long tails.

Once again, you see a rainbow pattern on the kite. Guess rainbows on kites are quite popular.

43. Even the sky has its share of scary clowns.

Sure it might look funny now. But as Lon Chaney said, a clown is never funny in the moonlight.

44. 3-D hexagon patterns can always dazzle in the sky.

Each of these consist of different colors and patterns. Still, wonder how someone could fly this.

45. A white bird always makes a graceful presence in flight.

You can see the white bird in a kite like this. Not sure if it’s supposed to be a seagull or a dove.

46. Hexagons can have all kinds of patterns.

You can see this from this hexagon kite chain. Each one features a different color.

47. Almost any work of art can be shown on a kite in the air.

And this kite of a woman is no exception. Of course, on rectangular kites, you can have any image you want.

48. With this kite, you can color your own world.

Yes, this is a kite. I know people may not agree with me. But it is a kite. Love it.

This is called a wau bulan or Malaysian moon kite. And they can come in all kinds of designs.

By themselves, they wouldn’t amount to much. But together, they’re a worthy sight to see.

53. A rainbow tube can always fly swept by the wind.

You can see these on a beach. Each has their unique pattern blowing in the wind.

54. Nobody could resist an enormous flower in the sky.

Particularly if it’s a colorful one made with turned squares. Love it.

55. Even an octopus can take to the skies.

Saw a lot of these on Pinterest. And yes, they’re widely available. Though an octopus in the air is strange for me.

56. You can never miss a colorful bird in flight.

There are quite a few kits like this. Yet, I chose to post the one I liked best.

57. You can even see fish take to the skies.

These fish kites are all on a line as the wind blows through them. And all of these probably come from Asia.

58. This diamond kite is a perfect prism, indeed.

Well, at least this one has a rainbow on all sides. And it’s in a simple shape.

59. With this kite, you’d find a rainbow in a weave.

Yes, it’s another rainbow kite with an unremarkable shape. But at least its pattern is quite interesting.

60. A flamingo kite can always remain up in the air.

Yes, they have flamingo kites, too. And I’m sure they’re popular in Florida just the same.

61. Is that a kite or a spiked parachute?

It’s actually a kite. Because that’s not an appropriate parachute design. Still, it’s quite stunning.

62. A bird of many colors should always soar.

Apparently, you can’t help but look at this colorful bird. Though it’s actually a kite held by a line.

63. Bet you’d never see a kite of a black puffer fish.

Yes, it might look cute when all puffed up. But remember, puffer fish are poisonous and can kill you.

64. A rainbow kite can always show off its colors.

This one even has clouds and is tied with a string at the center. Lovely.

65. Sometimes a kite can be designed so intricately, you can’t tell what the shape is.

There’s a blue version of this, too, by the way. But as far as I know, I don’t have the slightest idea what it’s supposed to resemble.

66. With this kite, you can color the skies.

Like how the kite is decked with crayons and its tails are squiggles. Wouldn’t mind seeing this in my neighborhood.

67. Never thought I’d ever see a colorful tulip fly.

At first, I didn’t exactly think it was a tulip. And then I saw the stem and leaves.

68. Now this kite is quite an angler.

Well, that’s just the kite shape for a fish design. Helps if the fish has rainbow colors, too.

69. Hope you enjoy some bears from the sky.

No, they’re not the Care Bears. But they’re just as cute and cuddly.

70. Some kites take to the wind better than others.

Guess this is one of those sport kites. Still, when the wind blows, it probably moves in a wondrous way with the air.

71. This blue kite almost blends in with the sky.

That is, unless it’s being flown in a Chinese city. Nevertheless, I think it will fly quite nicely.

72. An 8-pointed star can have its own colorful ring.

Well, it’s a lovely design. Still, it probably makes an impression in the skies just the same.

73. 4th of July kites should be in stars and stripes.

However, it’s best you keep them from fireworks. Or power lines for that matter.

74. This centipede really loves to show off its legs.

Yes, they have insect kites, too. But this centipede’s legs surely stun.

75. You’d almost think this kite is from another world.

If it glows in the dark, you can use it to prank your neighbors. Then again, maybe not.

76. A kite can never have too many propellers.

Then again, it probably can. Nevertheless, since it’s a very unique design, it goes on the post.

77. With all these planes, you’d think there was a whole squadron.

Relax, these are simple made planes all strung together. And they’re all in light blue and lavender.

78. For some reason, seems like I’ve seen a ghost.

Then again, it might be a ghost. Or it might be some other mythical Asian creature. Not sure which.

79. Wonder what this large insect is supposed to be.

Then again, it certainly has very colorful wings. And the bug has a whimsical grin.

80. Stick limbs don’t keep these triangle folks from flying.

Well, these do seem rather aerodynamic. Also, like their outfits.

81. You never know what you’d find on a kite line.

Though these people seem to have a more conceptual design. Nevertheless, each has a unique charm.

82. With this kite, you can spread the love.

Perhaps we should a heart kite in every place. Sure it might seem mushy, but we all need some love in our lives.

83. Intricate designs can go together like birds of a feather.

Each of these is made in a ring with a square center. All in all, they’re lovely.

84. Now this is a whale of a kite you’d find in the air.

Wouldn’t want your kite swallowed in that. Still, it’s kind of a sight to see.

85. Nothing amazes you like a kite ring in the sky.

Yes, it’s certainly spectacular. Like how it’s near other kites as well. Love it.

86. This kite will surely light the way for you.

Yes, I know a lighthouse kite is strange. But so are fish, whale, and shark kites, too.

87. Say hello to a spiked ball in the sky.

Never imagined seeing a kite like this. Though I’m not sure about the rainbow spikes on it.

88. A dragon kite should fly in a fiery blaze.

No wonder people love dragons. Still, looks amazing in the sky.

89. A peacock kite always has a fine feather display.

After all, peacocks are beautiful birds. Though I’d prefer to use a fancier peacock kite for this post.

90. Nobody could resist this little bug.

This one is really cute. Love the beady little eyes and fancy body.

91. A hexagon box kite is as good as any other.

Most box kites are square. But this one is a hexagon since it has all rainbow colors.

92. A rectangular kite can sometimes serve as an artistic canvas.

This one depicts Japanese art as you can see. Nevertheless, it looks amazing in the sky.

93. Butterflies always grace the sky with their presence.

This one has the rainbow colors melting in with it. So beautiful. Love it.

94. A dragonfly kite always delights.

It’s not as glamorous as a butterfly. But you can always do worse.

95. A ghostly Flying Dutchman always haunts the sky.

A Flying Dutchman is a ghost ship that’s doomed to sail the ocean forever and can never make port. Seeing one is an omen of doom.

96. Always helps if a rainbow kite comes with a tail.

I call this design, the sting ray. Mostly because it resembles a ray. And a mere ray doesn’t capture the image for me.

97. Seems like we find ourselves a rather happy manta ray.

Now a manta ray is a larger ray which isn’t poisonous. And they don’t usually come in rainbow colors either.

98. Check out this fancy bird in the skies.

This is a traditional Chinese style kite of a bird of prey. And it’s one of the fanciest bird kites I’ve ever seen.

99. Hope you don’t fly this kite too close to the sun.

This is an Icarus kite based on Greek mythology. Of course, he probably didn’t wear a shirt and a pair of pants.

100. With this kite, you’ll always have lift off.

This kite is of the space shuttle which NASA no longer uses. However, it’s still pretty cool.

The Sparkling World of Jewelry

estate-4

Whenever I go on Pinterest, I like to look at some of the dazzling jewelry featured. Of course, I always know I will never wear any of it since the pieces aren’t in my price range. But sometimes it helps to look at pretty things. Sure they may look like fanciful items of metal and rock as well as other materials. But these decorative ornaments are perhaps among the oldest remnants of human civilization. In fact, it’s one of the oldest types of archaeological artifacts with oldest known jewelry consisting of beads from a  Nassarius shells dating 100,000 years ago. So we’re talking about the Middle Paleolithic era. Jewelry forms may vary between cultures but are extremely long lived, possibly persisting since ancient times. Whenever I wear jewelry, it mostly consists of a pair of earrings, bracelets, pins, and necklaces. Yet, in some cultures, forms may persist like anklets or nose rings. Hell, you can pretty much find jewelry made to adorn nearly every body part from toe rings to hair pins, and even genital jewelry. So if you want to achieve a crazy punk rock look, be my guest. However, I wouldn’t recommend you to get tongue or nipple piercings though. And though adult women have mostly worn jewelry in most cultures, men and children aren’t far behind, especially if they’re rich. Nevertheless, for much of history, jewelry has most often been seen as a status symbol for its material properties, its patterns, or meaningful symbols. Most of the time, the wearers would be rulers, royalty, religious figures, soldiers, and nobility. And it mainly denoted the wearer’s role in society, social rank, or distinction. In any case, while most people perceive jewelry as consisting of precious stones and metals, this isn’t always the case. Now I can go all out in showing some of the prettiest jewels I find on Pinterest. But you’d probably think I was advertising for a large jewelry company and would be bored to tears. So instead I’ll devote my post to jewelry pieces you may not see before, may never wear, or may think they’re kind of crazy and impractical. So for your reading pleasure, I give you a treasure trove of odd jewelry pieces.

  1. A stiff collar necklace should always make a statement.

Not sure if I’d want to have something like that around me all the time. Seems like it could weigh you down.

2. This golden ring will always give you the time of day.

Well, they have watches you wear on your wrist. Still, probably has a very small watch battery.

3. A hairy bracelet is always chic.

Now this bracelet is a piece of mourning jewelry from the 19th century. It was most likely worn at someone’s funeral.

4. A golden shrine should have 2 gem encrusted birds.

This is a ring undoubtedly from India. Lovely, but not exactly my cup of tea.

5. You can always light it up with this ring.

Yes, it’s a lighter ring. No, I’m not sure if it actually works. And no, I don’t want to try.

6. How about some pearls in the chain mail?

Interesting configuration, but I’ll just take the pearls. Chain mail is kind of bulky stuff.

7. It’s not spring without a dandelion ring.

As to why anyone would want one, I don’t have the slightest idea. I mean most people consider dandelions as weeds.

8. A neurosurgeon should always have a pair of brainy cuff links.

Okay, these are pretty gross. Maybe they should be saved for special occasions like Halloween.

9. A crystal necklace should always take its natural form.

Well, let’s just call these diamonds in the rough. Though they aren’t actually diamonds. They’re most likely quartz. But the geologist in your life won’t mind.

10. You really have to put the screws to this ring.

Now that doesn’t look really comfortable. Perhaps it’s of the geometric variety.

11. Fish beads should always come in sections.

When you put the fish pieces together, you make a fancy bracelet. Though you might creep some people out.

12. A ring like this has a stone held within golden hands.

Okay, that’s kind of creepy. Also comes in several variations as I’ve seen on Pinterest.

13. Think of it as a tree on your knuckle.

Well, a tree coming from a rock on a ring. Pretty positive it’s not real. But looks cool.

14. This ring can use some grease, and not the elbow kind.

Yes, it’s an engine ring. Great for showing your mechanic your appreciation all those years.

15. A long lock of hair makes an ideal pendant.

Uh, that’s pretty sick if you really think about it. Seriously, hair necklace pendants? No thanks.

16. Check out this golden neighborhood swimming pool.

Yes, it’s all on a golden ring. Not sure if I’d want to wear it. But I think the design is very creative.

17. A necktie pin can be made of all kinds of things.

I guess these would be more appropriate for science teachers. Considering what they’re made from.

18. A pair of porcelain earrings will certainly inspire sweet relief.

Yes, these are toilet earrings with the seat up. And they’re made from gold. Great for the No. 1 and No. 2 in your life.

19. Disembodied arms can be chic when you wear them as earrings.

Sure you might have lovely jewelry pieces out there. Then you have stuff like this, which is incredibly creepy. Just so you know.

20. This eyeball ring is really out of sight.

I guarantee you’ll see some eye jewelry on this post. This ring also has some silver bony fingers, too. Perfect for Halloween.

21. A galaxy pendant necklace is really out of this world.

Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the wonders of the universe. That is, according to Neil Degrasse Tyson.

22. A Steampunk pendant necklace can always dazzle.

There’s a lot of Steampunk jewelry out there by the way. Much of it uses antique designs as well as gears like this one.

23. If you like animals, then this mouse in a tube necklace is right for you.

On second thought, this doesn’t seem very wearable at all. Besides, it’s creepy for I think that’s a real taxidermied mouse. Eek.

24. If you like the sea, this coral necklace is for you.

By the way, climate change is a major driver in coral bleaching which kills reefs. Another reason to be mad at Trump’s climate change order.

25. With this pendant necklace, behold the beauty of a blue moon.

A blue moon is when there’s a full moon twice a month. The moon isn’t necessarily blue though this one glows as such.

26. A flower branch necklace is best made with beads.

Not really something I could wear. But it’s surely a lovely work of art. Love the flowers and butterfly.

27. Show the urgency of global warming with these polar bear on ice earrings.

This is especially after what Lord Cheetohead did to Obama’s climate policy. Seriously, environmental protections should be a bipartisan issue and climate change is real.

28. With this necklace, it’s either rock, paper, scissors in gold.

Well, that’s how I take it from the hand signs. Yet, one of the great mysteries is why paper beats rock. Because I never understood that.

29. Thought I almost saw a face on this ring.

Okay, that’s pretty creepy. Might be an old piece though I doubt it. Great for Halloween.

30. This lip ring really gives a golden bite.

Comes with golden vampire fangs, too. And comes across as tacky jewelry for Twilight fans.

31. With enough beads, you can make a landscape.

Yes, this is a bead necklace of forest stream. I know it’s very well done. Love it.

32. Check out these necklaces for the homicidal maniac in your life.

Because you’d have to be a psychokiller to think these make great gifts. Seriously, why?

33. Did she just have her throat slit?

Don’t worry, her neck is fine. That’s how the necklace is designed. She’s just trying it on for her Halloween costume.

34. This cat eye necklace really has some crazy colors.

I saw a few of these on Pinterest. This one seems like it’s from a cat on acid.

35. With this ring, you can tell time the old fashioned way.

However, you’d only be able to use this during daylight hours. Since it’s a sundial ring.

36. Anyone slimy would adore a slug ring.

As to why slug rings exist, I don’t have the slightest idea. Because slugs aren’t nice-looking creatures.

37. A goth beach bum should always have a pair of mermaid skeleton earrings.

Also, great for remembering those lost in the Exxon-Valdez and BP oil spills. Or any oil spill that claimed mermaid lives.

38. This hive ring makes any woman a real queen bee.

By the way, the bees aren’t doing well either. And they serve an essential purpose such as pollinating crops that produce the food we eat.

39. How about some ketchup for your fries and rings?

Not a practical design, but quite a clever one. Like the ketchup bottle squirting on top.

40. You’ll always know what moon you’ll see with this ring.

As you can see how this ring depicts the moon phases. Great for werewolves so they’d know their time of the month.

41. You can always wear a bejeweled falcon on your finger.

I think this might come from India. But I’m not sure. But it’s definitely worth more than the Maltese falcon.

42. Care for a pair of chocolate cake earrings?

Of course, you can’t eat them. But you have to admire the detail and sprinkles.

43. This old brooch contains a place to put a lock on dead loved one’s hair.

Another piece of mourning jewelry. Yes, they did this and it’s disturbing just the same.

44. A Steampunk key pendant should always have a flowery touch.

Another piece of Steampunk jewelry. Love the key design and rose. Very artistic.

45. Sometimes you can just put about anything on a necklace.

This one seems to be made from scraps all wielded together with a glue gun. Not necessarily in my taste.

46. This brooch has a real silver cat’s eye.

Yes, Steampunk jewelry has its own unique style. Like rhinestone chains on this though.

47. Looks like someone had an accident with a small cleaver.

Actually, that’s ring for 2 fingers. It’s supposed to look that way. Why it exists, I have no idea.

48. An antler is always great for holding up your hair.

Not sure if it’s a real antler or not. Either way, wouldn’t want it in my hair ever.

49. This jeweled bird always minds its golden nest.

Another lovely bird ring. But doesn’t seem wearable for some reason. Also might scratch something.

50. You can always stun with a pair of goldfish bowl earrings.

You’d think they’d make earrings for almost everything. By the way, goldfish don’t really like living in bowls.

51. An octopus handpiece should always have a pearl on top.

Yes, you’ll find hand jewelry pieces like this. And yes, some can be quite strange.

52. This oyster ring has a pearl in its shell for you to see.

This one has its own unique nautical charm. But I’d be careful to wear it though.

53. Any bird lover would adore these birdhead earrings.

Okay, maybe those with an interest in taxidermy also. Because these are utterly creepy beyond all imagination.

54. With pizza slice earrings, the eyes have it.

Yes, this is an interesting concept design. No, I’m sure it’s not from the world of Bizarro. Okay, it might be.

55. A blue whale pendant necklace is a dazzling sight.

And a lovely piece of artwork it surely is. Like how the blue whale looks so dazzling.

56. You can have a neighborhood street on a necklace.

Though one with a lot of traffic no doubt. Still, an interesting concept.

57. This coffin necklace contains one lovestruck skeleton.

It even has heart eyes and a heart pelvis. The coffin is also magnetic. Yes, it’s morbid. But fun.

58. With these earrings, many might see you as an ass wipe.

The toilet paper on these is made of beads so you can’t wipe with them. But they’re great for any bathroom party.

59. Always cut on the dotted line.

On second thought, don’t. Because this is a necklace designed that way. But you get where it came from.

60. A butterfly hairpiece always make everything flutter in spring.

Though I’d hate to have something like that caught in my hair. Yet, it’s surely stunning.

61. This necklace is all eyes all the time.

Kind of seems like something you’d find on A Series of Unfortunate Events. Though I don’t want to give away anything.

62. This pin of Little Red Riding Hood is almost pure fairy tale.

This is utterly disgusting. Yes, it has Little Red climbing out of the wolf. In the original version, she’s not so lucky.

63. Put your finger through a golden ring of shark jaws.

Guess they might actually have galas during Shark Week. Though this is quite an original design.

64. On a camel ring, the stone goes on the hump.

But it’s covered in jewels just the same. Nevertheless, not sure if it’s old or not.

65. You’ll only find one beat on this ring.

Well, a heartbeat ring. Didn’t imagine that. At least it’s not flat lining so you’re alive.

66. Now that is a very fancy propeller.

It’s a golden propeller ring. Wonder if it spins around. Might want to try.

67. Here’s a necklace you don’t see everywhere anymore.

Unfortunately, phone booth necklaces were replaced by the newer cell phone necklaces. This is among the only few left.

68. Hope you receive this special ring.

Yes, it’s the one you get on the phone. And your finger. Yet, I understand this model is obsolete.

69. With this hand necklace, you can fit all kinds of rings.

On one hand, it’s an interesting design concept. On the other hand, it’s morbid for the disembodied hand part.

70. This ring will always tell you what day it is.

Well, this ring is somewhat useful. As long as each month as 31 days which isn’t true. But it won’t tell you the year.

71. Want a little birdie in your hair.

Of course, it’s a caged canary. But it’s otherwise a charmer or a great conversation piece.

72. In a thimble necklace, always put in some pins.

Since pins make a necklace like this look sew right. Might want to use a little cushion though.

73. The concept of this necklace is rather elemental.

Not sure what that molecular structure is supposed to be. But it has guaranteed chemistry.

74. Always have to get an octopus among a string of pearls.

Because a plain pearl necklace doesn’t capture the nautical spirit. Lovely in its own way though.

75. A butterfly ring, should have all kinds of jewels.

And I certainly love the gems encrusted on this one. Very colorful and very appropriate for springtime.

76. A shell necklace should always have some net.

This one has the shells in the net. Could probably weigh someone down. Not what I want to wear.

77. For bearded men, it helps to bring along a mustache comb.

Luckily there’s such a pendant right here. Hope you can find a lot of use from it.

78. You’d almost think this face was somehow detached.

Guess this some avant garde modern art necklace I don’t understand. And it kind of creeps me out.

79. A lock brooch looks great on anyone’s neck.

And I don’t think this guy is available at the moment. Because his brooch has the lock in place.

80. You can have a real claw into this pendant necklace.

It has a crab claw pendant or so I think. Great for anyone into Stempunk nautical.

81. Open this ring with the right combination.

Though it would just reveal some golden coin. But sometimes the numbers and turns are hard to remember.

82. This gem encrusted owl watch will always give you the time.

It has one eye for time. And another for day. In any case, it’s a sure hoot.

83. This necklace has a lot of lips to it.

According to Pinterest, this was said to be designed by Salvador Dali. And it surely does look surreal to boot.

84. This necklace features a golden switch blade.

There’s also a set of swtichblade earrings to go with it. Though I don’t think it’s as lethal as its real life counterpart.

85. You’re always zipped with this bracelet.

Yet, ti won’t open or close anything since it’s just a bracelet. Cool though.

86. With this ring, time almost stands still.

This one apparently depicts a water drop about to make a splash. Kind of odd but it’s not like you’re used to seeing a moment like this for more than a split second.

87. Any queen of the dead has to have a pair of these skull earrings.

Sure they’re quite morbid with the skull stuff. But they have their own unique charm to them.

88. You’ll find a real tidal wave with this pendant.

Though it sure would remind you of the ocean or the beach. Yet, not something I’d wear.

89. This little ax seems stuck in a stump.

Actually it’s a ring depicting such scene. Great gift for the lumberjack in your life.

90. This mourning brooch features its own unique basket weave.

Yes, mourning jewelry can get quite weird at times. But I guess it helped the Victorians cope with their losses back in the day.

91. This necklace brings the sea to life in encrusted jewels.

Though many might actually prefer a necklace with real shells and starfish. Though I can’t complain about this one.

92. You’ll always find something slithering on a pendant like this.

Reminds me of the kind of jewelry you might find on Game of Thrones. Yet, the snakes seem quite menacing.

93. How about some tea for once?

This necklace has tea pouring into a cup. Odd, but utterly delightful.

94. Bet you thought this pendant was full of candy.

Well, it’s of a gumball machine. But the gumballs aren’t for eating.

95. You can find many of the ocean’s wonders in a seashell.

This snail shell has pearls and jewels inside a wire frame. Very lovely and very creative.

96. Hope you enjoy a little bird in pearls.

This one seems to consist of silver and gold on a ring. Has a lot of poise and perfection. Love it.

97. Any Steampunk fan would think the living daylights out of this bracelet.

A perfect cuff for a lady adventurer. Has all the pearls and gears you’ll need.

98. Two trees can always stand as one.

But this pendant doesn’t seem to depict healthy trees. Rather both seemed to have some branches cut off from them.

99. A Steampunk brooch must include a wing once in a while.

I don’t know about you. But it’s possible that wing could be real. Goes with the bird head earrings.

100. I say you could find a necklace like this rather bubbly.

Yes, it’s a bubble necklace. And I think the bubbles are made from glass which could easily break.

The Squeaky Clean World of Shower Curtains

shower-curtains-with-valance-640x640

Shower curtains provide a critical purpose in the bathroom. First, they help ensure privacy when one is in the shower (assuming that one’s not transparent like the one above). Second, they keep the water coming from the shower from splashing everywhere in the bathroom. Of course, it’s no surprise that many shower curtains are made from waterproof materials like vinyl or plastic. At my house, there’s a shower curtain with 2 layers that consist of a thinner decorative one as well as a plastic one designed to keep the water. And you have to make sure the inner white layer goes into the tub. At any rate, most shower curtains usually have a plain, geometric, or ocean design. Sometimes they’re clear plastic like this one above as well. But though I can go all about showing the great shower curtains, you’ll most likely be bored to tears. So instead, I’ll devote this post to some of the crazy ones. Many of these might consist of shower curtains you’d want but know that it would not go well with the guests or the children.Then again, there may be other reasons. So for your reading pleasure, I bring you an assortment of some of the great curtains for your bathroom.

  1. There’s nothing more badass than a bear on top of a shark.
Helps that the bear is standing upright on a tidal wave with an assault rifle. This is hilarious.

2. Who’s that coming from the shower?

I'm sure this is from a horror movie of some sort. But yes, it looks kind of scary. Guaranteed to help guests with constipation.

4. As we all know, unicorns always have rainbows coming from their butt.

If you're a demented girl that enjoys cutesy fantasy stuff and bathroom jokes, I have your answer. Seriously, you'd totally want this.

5. There’s nothing brighter in the bathroom like a curtain of neon colored giraffes.

No, this isn't an acid trip. It's a real shower curtain depicting neon giraffes. I'm sure if they were on the Savannah, you'd be able to see them from miles away.

6. Looks like this bathroom has a problem with zombie infestation.

7. This cat means serious business.

Here we have a kitty on a unicorn with laser eyes that shoots fire through its nostrils. Even funnier the cat carries a golden handgun. This is brilliant.

Even if your dreams pertain to a pirate giraffe riding a flying shark. Okay what the fuck?

9. Here we have Jesus on the shore.

There were quite a few good Jesus ones that would've been funnier. But I couldn't save them at a suitable size. So this is as good as you're going to get on this post.

10. While Apple as the iPod, a high tech bathroom has this curtain.

It's called the iPood. And it's not something that you should do in the shower. Nor should the iPeed.

11. Never saw a T-Rex on a bicycle before.

Yes, I know it's quite ridiculous. But so is the notion of Jurassic Park. And despite that many would want think bringing back dinosaurs may be awesome, we should understand why it may not be a good idea.

Yes, I know it’s quite ridiculous. But so is the notion of Jurassic Park. And despite that many would want think bringing back dinosaurs may be awesome, we should understand why it may not be a good idea.

12. Remember the shower doesn’t double as a urinal.

Remember despite how tempting it may be, don't pee in the shower. Shower is for cleaning. Not for taking a whizz.

Remember despite how tempting it may be, don’t pee in the shower. Shower is for cleaning. Not for taking a whizz.

13. In case you don’t know how to text pictures, this shower curtain has emoticons.

Well, emoticons are things you type to express feelings. Nowadays, emojis have made that almost antiquated.

14. My, that seems like a dignified portrait of Keith Richards.

Of course, we should all know that despite all the things he did to himself, he's still alive. And he's outliving so many celebrities. We can't explain it.

15. Well, well, well, what the hell happened here?

Yes, it's a bloody shower curtain you'd expect to find in a serial killer's bathroom. Sure to freak out your guests and make a great Halloween decoration. Also helps with constipation.

16. Is there something burning from the tub?

Relax, it's just a shower curtain with red flames. But where I live, it might make people think your water supply has been fracked.

17. How about a shower curtain of the world?

Note that borders in some regions might be subject to change. This is particularly true in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

18. Barbie can kick a unicorn’s ass if you let her.

The unicorn can even puke a rainbow, too. Imagine that. Still, hilarious.

19. Nothing makes a guy more manly than punching a grizzly bear.

Yet, a manlier man has enough common sense to avoid one as much as possible. Because disturbing such animals has very unfortunate implications.

20. You have to admit, this sloth really knows how to pole dance.

Not bad for an animal who only climbs out of a tree to go to the bathroom. Still, I couldn't leave this sloth stripper out. This is just so funny as hell.

21. Don’t mind this deep sea diver feeding the fishes.

You know most animal places have rules against feeding the animals. The ocean should be no different.

22. This deep sea diver can even punch a shark.

Scratching the shark's eye would've done the trick. But it wouldn't look nearly as awesome.

Scratching the shark’s eye would’ve done the trick. But it wouldn’t look nearly as awesome.

23. You see, I told you rhino horns have special properties.

Okay, rhino horns may not sprout rainbows in the cosmos. But this is just too funny to miss. Love it.

24. Perhaps you might want some llama fries with that.

Well, they're llamas in a French fry container. I know it doesn't make sense but it's pretty funny.

25. This cat knight rides to adventure on his noble narwhal.

I guess he rides in the water without a breathing apparatus. Still love how the cat has a bridal and saddle on the narwhal.

The Fantastic Footwear World of Shoes

pakistani-shoe-trends-for-coming-eid-ul-fitr-2012

Unless you’re a hobbit on Middle Earth, there’s a very good chance you’ll need a pair of shoes to protect your feet. You may also need different kinds of shoes depending on occasion. Some people wear special shoes related to their job. Some wear them as a fashion statement. But why or when we wear them, shoes always have a major place in our lives. If you’re a famous dictator’s wife in the Philippines, they’re a major collector’s item. If you’re an American Muslim from the Middle East, they’re something you throw at Donald Trump at one of his rallies as a way of saying, “Thanks for stereotyping us as terrorists and making our lives miserable, you xenophobic asshole.” And if you’re a woman at Gabe’s, it’s likely they probably won’t have the shoes you want available. Of course, I always try to keep a hold of my shoes as much as I can. I have high heels for special occasions depending on seasons. I have a pair of tennis shoes for everyday life. I have pair of old tennis shoes for yard work. I have sandals to slip on when I need to go outside. I have old marching band shoes I wear for job interviews. I have a pair of flip flops for a public showers. I have slippers for around the house. And I have a pair of boots for winter weather. So that makes my shoe wardrobe. Now I can show you all the great shoes out there but you’ll probably be bored to tears. So instead, I’ll show you shoes that might make you scratch your heads. And most of these won’t make a comfortable fit or have any practical use whatsoever. For your reading pleasure, I give you a treasure trove of unique shoes.

No, that’s just how the shoe is designed. The gum is at the heel. I know what you’re thinking but it’s not what it looks like.

17. These high heels are surely ap-peeling.

If only Carmen Miranda could wear these to match her hat. Then her whole outfit would've been perfect.

The Bookbaggy World of Incredible Backpacks

backpack-crazy-32773

Whether it is for school, hiking, travel, or other things, backpacks have become an essential component to carry things while keeping our hands free. As with purses, several types exist with many shapes, sizes, and colors. Of course, if you went to middle or high school in my area, you had to get a backpack that was either of clear plastic or mesh for security reasons. Don’t ask. While I can tell you all about the wonderful backpack designs out there, chances are you’ll probably be bored to death because you’ve seen them all over and over again. Instead, I’ll show you backpacks that you might find quite strange that I’ve seen on Pinterest and Google Images. Some of these might have crazy designs that you may have never seen before. Some may even feature some extra components that will make you unable to afford them. So for your reading pleasure, I give you a glimpse into the world of crazy backpacks.

  1. Is that a hand coming from that backpack?
Okay, that's kind of creepy. Not something that you'd want your child to carry at school. Unless you're in the Addams family.
