Mood Bored

Firstly have a peek at yesterday's jumble finds before you read on

Today didn't pan out as I'd planned, not in any kind of unhappy fashion but I'm now at a loose end. I'd like to be scanning my huge collection of ephemera, but I'm currently at Mikes. 

I've decided to do a mood board (or bored) post in the style of my inspiriational blog sister Edie Pop who has a whole blog dedicated to it. Go look! You may spot some familar people.

You know, you have a dark side, Clare, a strange and dark side...
That duck/rabbit (ruck/dabbit?) head is disturbing. And pinned butterflies make me sad.
But hey, if that's how your mood is tonight, who am I to question?! I am not surprised you liked the Pitt Rivers museum in Oxford, have you been to see all the stuffed animals and weird collections at the museum in Tring?
I am still laughing at the is-it-drug-paraphernalia-or-is-it-a-guitar-pick ring from the jumble sale, and the growler-flashing glamour girls. Jumble sales, you gotta love the variety!
Good to see some blog buddies in the mix there, looking forward to seeing your take on the bug jewellery trend! xxxxx

Oh and The Wicker Man is fabulous. I was helping on a school trip in some local woods where the kids danced around in a circle singing some bizarre song about "the bird was on the branch, and the branch was on the tree, and the tree was in the wood", etc, which reminded me of the Wicker Man. I said as much to another parent, who laughed and said, "who's got the matches?" How refreshing to find a bit of dark humour among the do-goody volunteers!
I'll shut up now. xxxxxx

This is the very best kind of beauty bizarre - and it's an honour to have my photo next to Ms. Love in Hole! I knew when I bought that dress I'd want to wear it to the studio to wail in. These things are like creepy children's tales - wonderful!! Very inspiring. The Wicker Man is deliciously frightening.

I love your moodboard and to see some of our blogland friends in it!
I really have to do one of those beautiful insects jeweles, this photos collection really inspires me to add a kawaii vibe to them( I still don't know how..).
The rabbit/duck is lovely and so all the things that you posted(we already discussed about lots of them!).I'm sorry that I could't comment on your last post, everything was so interesting too, now I'm going to read it again,the children books were amazing and the anti Joyce badges brilliant!

The rabbit/duck is very disturbing indeed but also has a weird beauty about it even though it repels me. There is a lot of weird beauty here Clare, and do I see a clip from Fantastic Mr Fox as well? Love the kawaii pic of you and your friend too, you so suit that style with your pink hair. xx

Very pleased to meet you Miss Simmonds. I must say I adore the fact that you live in the very land of Midsommer Murders. *****(5 stars) I, on the other hand, live where then filmed Transformers, Batman, The French Connection and who knows what other drivel. Thanks for stopping by Project Minima.

That rabbit - duck head freaks me out a bit, I'm not going to lie..haha, but at the same time I love the mix of the beautifully bizarre, I have to admit. It's like one of those things that you just cant help going back and staring at even though it's highly disturbing. Is that Sacramento!!! How could anyone not love her...that spider brooch has had me smitten all week long. Gorgeous!

Well aren't these images just delicious and so perfect for this time of year. I think when you have a strong attraction to light and bright and beautiful things you can also find beauty in darker objects as well. We sure need both in our lives to be balanced. I am loving the mood you are in :)
