“Conventionality is not morality. Self-righteousness is not religion. To attack the first is not to assail the last. To pluck the mask from the face of the Pharisee, is not to lift an impious hand to the Crown of Thorns. These things and deeds are diametrically opposed: they are as distinct as is vice from virtue. Men too often confound them: they should not be confounded: appearance should not be mistaken for truth; narrow human doctrines, that only tend to elate and magnify a few, should not be substituted for the world-redeeming creed of Christ.”

— Charlotte Bronte (via meemzter)

   I love these bookplates! WHY don’t we have them anymore? I suppose it’s because books were treasured a hundred years ago, when that was ALL YOU HAD- no TV, no computer, no Ipod, not even a RADIO. All you had was your book collection, your needlepoint, and the desperate hope that you wouldn’t die in childbirth.
   Still, someone should make these. This is from pinkcobweb, who has a wonderful blog and Etsy store.

Weeee! More Disney Steampunk for Floridians!

While Mike was developing the limited edition figures, he found the time (yes folks, I’ll be here all week) to create an incredible Vinylmation Steampunk pocket watch. Wow! I love pocket watches; I used to have a Mickey Mouse one in high school. This watch will be packaged with a 3-inch figure that was inspired by the watch. The watch and figure combination will have an edition size of 750 and is scheduled for release in California and Florida in December 2010.

Posted earlier this year on tbo.com, the companion website for The Tampa Tribune (btw, I’ll have a story in both publications in the next couple weeks.)
Lauren Markland goes goggles on designing

 
She gets her fabric from local or out-of-town fabric stores or from the Internet. As far as props, there is a junk store by the high school filled with machine parts and gears and cogs, she loves it. Another source is thrift stores.

Isn’t she adorable? Can I have one?
