10 Things I ♥ in April

April 2016

  1. Goat Story Coffee Horns. Travel mugs shaped like mead horns? That’s great. Sadly I don’t do the whole coffee-to-go thing at all (I don’t even drink coffee, it makes me too jittery although I love the smell) but seeing those makes me want to try it. The idea of horn-shaped mug is something so very fairy-tale like it surely delights my inner fae and of course my Mori side.
  2. Why Enchantment Matters, a heartfelt short essay by Sharon Blackie. This resonates deeply with the Changeling in me (yes, capital C) and her point of view just feels so right.
  3. Past Your Porchlight, the delightful Etsy shop of Jessie Cunningham from Ontario. She makes beautiful felt creatures, foremost bears, and they are the kind of animal I’d like to see in the forests of my dreams. The combination of a bear with mushrooms is just wonderful. And she has a badger, too.
  4. The Art of Coey Kuhn. He has a Tumblr here and there’s an Etsy shop, too. I love the Unicorn tapestry tryptich (inspired by medieval imagery, always a plus) and I think I might desperately need the occult patches
  5. Tattoo artist Yvonne Kang‘s work. Just look at her Instagram, her lines are so fine and perfect! I especially like this card queen, in fact the first thing I saw of her work.
  6. Pretty Little Liars. I started watching after I ran out of Bryan Fuller re-runs. Basically it’s Twin Peaks (but with a more viewer-friendly pace) meets Desperate Housewives (but with teenagers). Lots of secrets, lots of drama and a dash of LGBT discussion. Also, Hanna Marin is the loveliest being on earth and her mother is awesome, too. What can I say, I love a good mystery and I’m hooked for now.
  7. Ballet. I wanted to take ballet lessons since I was in first grade but somehow it never happened. Now that I’m 26 I finally got up and followed Fragile to the uni sports ballet class. It was all I had imagined, the instructor was lovely, the music was fun and I’ve got sore muscles, too. (picture)
  8. WossiDiA. WossiDiA is the digitalised archive of Mecklenburg folklore collector Richard Wossidlo. I’m taking a class on archives as a source for culture studies this semester and the professor is one of the archive keepers from Rostock.
  9. hipsum, a (absolutely beautifully working) parody of lorem ipsum – but with Hipster buzzwords.
  10. The Stand Still Stay Silent Book 1 is finally available to non-backers! I’ll definitely get a copy. If you haven’t read the comic yet I suggest you start with that now, it’s great.
