For Hire

I love discovering things and the internet is a fabulous place to do so!

I am sure you are familiar with Etsy treasuries, right? The collection of items within a titled theme. My items are frequently added to treasuries (thanks a lot!), I even featured some here on the blog in the past. The newest treasury is called Love Kills and my Sex Pistols skirt is featured. It's a great collection period, but one item stood out immediately: The Sid and Nancy crochet puppets - Dope! Including studded belt and fishnet stockings! 95 bucks and they both (plus the knife) are yours to keep...

So that very crafty crochet lady from the slightly darker side goes by the name of Shove and her Etsy shop is called Croshame.

Gotta love the craft but I also admire the messages she's communicating. For example what about this burger?

...labeled 'very rare indeed', this cow burger rocks!

For 70 bucks you get the bun, the cow, the lettuce, the tomato and cheese! Go figure.

...unassembled cow burger...

And last but not least, here is the piggy on the blanket. I'd love to have this place setting for everyone of my guests when they come to my house for dinner.

Shove keeps engaging us with a macabre lamb chop and, and, and... I hope you enjoy! And for those that - like me - can't get enough, visit Shove's blog Doomed To Live, which she manages with her partner in crime Chuck. You'll see behind the scenes of 2 creatives. I would have loved to be invited to their Ginger X-Mas Bash for example!

Hi Bluefemme - isn't it? I am in love with these dolls and will buy one in the near future (i think I go with the pig on the blanket), they so rock! I checked out your blog and I totally digg your style, I love vintage too and all kinds of cute colorful things! I'll keep checking back on your posts :)

Just like the rare Swiss mountain flower Edelweiss - a symbol of prestige and distinction - the clothing brand IDILVICE (pronouced "Edel-vice") was born in the mountains of Switzerland and since then it's flourishing on the concrete of Manhattan and recently even in the rolling hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. However as the spelling indicates, the label is not meant to be associated with too much folkloric alpine tradition, but rather and probably in the contrary, with unconventionality. The IDILVICE label was founded in 1995 by Swiss Native fashion designer Idil from the city of Saint Gallen, Switzerland, who's foundation dates back to the 7th Century and which became famous for their quality textile products, especially embroidery textiles, which are still popular with Parisian Haute Couture designers today. In search for something less traditional, Master Graphic Designer Idil ventured out to New York City where she fell in love with American Pop Culture.
