Before you ask, "Jen's Truffles" is the result of an impromptu brain-storming session with John. After compiling a list of boring generic terms like "cool stuff" and "favorite finds" and getting pretty frustrated, I finally blurted, "They're like truffles. You know, 'cuz I had to dig through a lot of crap to find them." Which made John laugh so hard that he insisted I use it. So there you have it. My favorite finds of the week are now comparable to "a strong-smelling underground fungus." Which, you must admit, is pretty memorable.
Now, on to the fungus among us!
I know I'm supposed to save my favorite for last, but I can't wait that long - so LOOK AT THIS AMAZING LABYRINTH BOX:
I found this hand-painted beauty over on my favorite Labyrinth fan site, and I'm head over heels for the whole thing. The stylized jewelry and hair piece, the spindly lettering on the side ("I was looking for something..."), and of course Sarah herself is just gorgeous.
And as if that weren't enough, check out the inside:
This was painted by artist Darcy Ripley, and sadly it's already sold (CURSES!) from her etsy shop. If you hit that link you can see a few more close-ups of it, though - and maybe we can petition Darcy to paint more Labyrinth-inspired boxes. After all, wouldn't this be perfect for an engagement ring?
Next up, this Doctor Horrible Plush has a Ph.D. in adorableness:
I'd want a Bad Horse plush to go with him.
If you love Fantasyland as much as I do, then you're going to really love this children's playhouse:
I found this while following the links from a whimsical wooden fairy house over on Boing Boing. The site it's on has lots of storybook playhouses like this one - and yes, that's an actual kids' playhouse, complete with real landscaping. AND I WANT ONE. Hit the storybook link to see over a dozen more guaranteed to make your inner 6-year-old squeal with delight.
Via Fashionably Geek: check out a princess Leia hoodie, complete with bunned hood:
(And they sell them at Hot Topic!)
And finally, in case you haven't seen it yet, behold the awesome lineup of Avengers-inspired eye makeup that went viral last week:
