Favourite Things Friday #5

Oh dear, has it really been a week since my last post? Time sure flies. What better way to jump back into blogging than with this gold tooth jumper?

Gold Teeth Jumper by Aorta
Eee! I am in love with it. I have a thing for teeth. And jumpers. Need I say more? 
Side note: I am actually waiting to be accused of ripping off/copying/etc. Kaylah from The Dainty Squid, and have been ever since a friend of mine pointed out the similarities (which I think are totally minor) in our blogs. I really admire Kaylah, and her style, photos, and killer hair, and I would love to pick her brain on a number of things from photography to hair dying. I'm kind of amazed that I've come across another human being with so many interests that are similar to my own. I started following her blog awhile ago and when I came across her tooth collection I flipped. I am so jealous of it. Mine only consists of baby teeth and wisdom teeth, and a tooth brooch thus far. As for my name, the Myopic comes from me being nearsighted as heck, and Squid from my love of cephalopods and all things tentacally (totally a word!), which was reinforced by Lindsey Way some time ago with this and this)

Boat Neck Flamingo Dress by Jennifer Lilly Designs  
I laughed when I saw this dress. It's so... well, me! Everything from her shop is just darling. If I were made of money I'd snap up everything she has, I swear.

Silver Branch Twig Set by Colby June

Jeez this is so elegant. It looks so delicate. And for some reason all I picture wearing it with is my favourite jeans and a button up shirt.

At The Bottom Of Everything by Lindsey Way
Speaking of Lindsey Way, I adore every piece of art she's created I come across. The woman is genius. I am in awe of her talent constantly, and the fact that this is a paper sculpture is kind of mind blowing to me. My own experiments with paper were utter failures so I really admire her work. And I wish this sculpture was sitting in my home right now. Beautiful.

A Ctenophore
I love Comb Jellies (ctenophora). I mean, just look at it. Yes this is a real animal, and yes it really is this cool looking. They make their own light (through bioluminescence) and they are beautiful.

Anatomically Correct Lung Locket by Peggy Skemp
I am in love with Peggy Skemp Jewelry. I was drawn in awhile ago by the Anatomical Heart Locket, hooked with the tentacle collection, and now, my friends, I am in love. I have decided that I need to own a piece by her at some point in my lifetime. Psst, she also has an Etsy shop.

Stay Scary,


  1. I love some much the anatomical necklaces! Love the heart and the tentacles collection :) And I mean what you say about Kaylah, how can you not be hooked up by that sweet gal? :)
