Making anything and everything...except dinner.


    • Thanks, Kristen! It’s Radicchio Leaf by Sherwin Williams, I spent a lot of time searching for the perfect shade and it turned out wonderful in here!

  1. Awesome styling on the bookshelves! Love it all! I love curiosities, too, and last year read a book you might like, Dr. Mutter’s Marvel’s: A True Tale of Intrigue and Innovation at the Dawn of Medicine. It is about Dr. Mutter, who was one of the earlier American plastic surgeons, working on people’s faces when they were disfigured by working in chemical factories and other harsh environments, as well as birth defects, etc. It is amazing to read about how he prepared for surgery and to think the people let him operate without any anesthetic! (He did eventually use it in its earliest days.) There are some amazing diagrams in it and he left many specimens that became part of a medical museum in Philadelphia. It made me even more fascinated with curiosities and the ways of displaying them.

    • Sounds fascinating! I will definitely have to look into that. I really enjoy that kind of reading, especially this time of year. 🙂

  2. This is excellent! It looks like the library that I imagine Poe’s The Raven would have taken place in. Perfection!

  3. The Halloween curiosities pictured here are macabre while still being tasteful. In fact, many of these can become part of your décor all year long if you desire. Even if you don’t want them up year round, they are absolutely perfect for this time of year.
