I fell in love with this delightful fountain in Koblenz, Germany. I wish I knew the story behind it, as it seemed completely out of place just outside of a modernish mall exit.

Hello all, and how I’ve missed you!

For those who haven’t seen them yet, the immensely talented clock builder Eric Freitas has posted pictures of his newest mechanical marvel. Visit his blog for an incredibly detailed documentation of the creation process, including lots of delicious photos.

Unfortunately this piece isn’t for sale.

I interviewed Eric Freitas back in July, if you missed it, here is the link.

Eric, thanks again for sharing your beautiful work with us!

After much contemplation over these past long Winter months, I have decided to focus on the Curious Oddities shop and Blog.

I am applying to some craft shows here in Toronto, and there is a fabulous Circusy, vaudevillian event in the works for late Summer. Look forward to a new website, delightful new items, news, interviews and adventure.  I’ll keep you posted.
