Neverland, Never Creepier...

My friend sent me a Flickr photostream by Paul Scheer, who recently had the AMAZING opportunity to view Michael Jackson's auction items at Neverland Ranch. Many of the items are...indescribable- I was not able to repost his photos (which depict the uber creepy stuff) here, but here's a sampling:

Anyone want a bathrobed old lady statue in their bedroom? Anyone?

The little girl is creepy as hell....stuff nightmares are made of...shudder...

The tackiest espresso machine ever....I wonder if I can put this on my wedding registry?

If you happen to be in downtown Oakland on Friday, May 1st- come check out Red Cake Gallery's table at Mayor Dellums' 3rd Annual Oakland Economic Summit. The summit includes keynote speakers, panel discussions, and a variety of Oakland businesses will be exhibiting to promote their goods and services.

It's great to see the city of Oakland making an effort to support locally owned businesses!

Art Bling

I've always been a fan of all things sparkly and shiny- and Joseph Barbaccia's art immediately caught my eye. He is a multi-disciplinary artist and makes awesome bling infested sculptures like these:

Euphoria - composed of polystyrene, sequins and pins...detail view below. Bling-tastic!

Qualm -I'd love to have this lovely, slightly creepy, sequined paw-like sculpture in my living room:

And the aptly titled Bling:

If you're looking for a delicious, heart-clogging gift, look no further than the Bacon of the Month Club from The Grateful Palate.

Grateful Plate also features other gourmet bacon foodstuffs, like bacon popcorn, which sounds pretty damn tasty:

If you prefer non-edible bacon accessories, their store carries a variety of them- from bacon toilet paper to a bacon butter dish:

Mini Pies

I was scouring Etsy.com for doll parts, and came across these super cute crochet mini pies and ice creams:
The creator of these, Tilda & Filur, was actually only selling the crochet patterns, not the pies, but they make my mouth water! And of course I got sidetracked, and found lovely miniature dollhouse food from Japan..(not sure exactly what makes the donuts 'healthy':
Yum! I bought $40 worth of mini food (mostly pies and an awesome 'Mexican dinner set', with the intent of making corsages and boutonnieres for my upcoming wedding!
