Sometimes, just for fun, I like to visit 1stDibs and browse through the “curiosities”section.  They have such a great number of peculiar things and I fall in love over and over again.  Above, an oversized etched bone elephant from India.  Wouldn’t she look darling in a child’s room?

    Oh, I love the barnacle lamps…I may trade the shades out. I also really like the Cameroon Beaded Dance Aprons and Bell Jar filled with Modern Eggs, fun find!

    I’ll take it all!! well, maybe not the Russian Cape, though it could come in handy one day…
    I expect John Jr. to accept strolls in nothing other than his 18th century cabriolet. xxx

    I’m really digging these wild finds. The elephant I think is my favorite, but I can’t stop thinking about what could be done with that wire hot air balloon… It’d look pretty with some flowers growing in it.

    Love that you all love these. There are so many fantastically quirky finds on 1stDibs. I’ve always been an accessories obsessed girl so it’s a bit like a candy store as far as I’m concerned!
