So I have alluded to my apartment and decorations many times. I have been told it looks like a combination yoga retreat, gypsy caravan, mad scientist lab, and healing shaman hut. I am very pleased by that comparison. I hear, despite my freaky shit, my apartment is very calming to be in.
I thought since I just had my apartment re-done and am feeling particularly pleased with it, I would share some of my favorite things with you. It is obviously a work in progress. I still have X-Ray shadowbox nightlights to build. And I didn’t take pictures of the necklaces on every doorknob or the pictures of my sister. Or my craft tables (yes there are two, one just for jewelry making and one for everything else) as they are a bit of a mess. But I think I will be able to still paint an accurate picture of it.
Glass head, shell collection, and wooden clogs.
I bought this when I got my first place alone. It is driftwood, sea glass, crystals, all kinds of cool weird beach-y things.
I call this my seance table. It is a soy candle, crystal, salt lamp, singing bowl, Buddha head, incense. It just happens to look unintentionally creepy but then I liked it so I kept it that way. (No seances were done at this table. At least, not by me).
I won this beauty at a gem show last year. It was the grand prize drawing. It is huge. Two feet long by almost a foot wide. It’s my coffee table center piece.
Native American bone, turquoise and leather chest piece I made and shadowboxed (which is now a verb).
Goat skull and poison ledger. This is on my TV stand.
Antique French chemistry set. Also on my TV stand. For when I start making antique French meth.
Antler necklace holder. I made it for overflow.
Original driftwood necklace holder. I ran out of room on it. These are both covered in necklaces I have made. making your own jewelry has a ton of perks.
Earring holder I made along with a shitload of earrings I mostly made.
Collage of random shit. Two barometers, thermometer, brass mail slot, mother of pearl drawer pulls, cast iron seahorse, and a freaky wheat and dried grass crown my sister made for me.
I don’t want to make this too long and boring. But that gives you an idea of my space. My bookshelf is not featured, though I love it and it is overflowing with books and comics. I didn’t include any of my actual artwork (or the crystals that are lying pretty much everywhere) as that would take another blog post. Though, I will make one with those if anyone is really interested.
What do you think? What freaky things do you keep in your apartment? Anyone want to see more of my shit?
