i’m so excited to share the list of alison aka teenangster, who i have been blog stalking for ages – in a totally creepy way. her blog has a completely unique & beautiful aesthetic that i can’t seem to get enough of (and she’s also one of those smart & funny gals who i wish i knew in real life.) she blogs at etsy too – so go ahead & stalk her there as well.

things i like right now by alison of teenangster


  1. I’ve recently been revisiting the campy awesomeness of Death Becomes Her. Death humor, an undead Meryl Streep and Isabella Rossellini: yes, please! The scene where Goldie Hawn is in giant sweatpants (with forty cats) and eating a steady diet of frosting out of the can — well, it haunts me.
  2. I love me a good interiors blog, and The Brick House is my new favorite. Her recent reupholstery of a monstrous velvet couch (ew) is the stuff dreams are made of. That red!
  3. David Neale of the Golden Smith creates jewelry like no one else out there. I love anything with eyes, so this cuff was an obvious choice, but his rye bread badge also has my heart.
  4. What I wouldn’t do for some fancy latkes. Smoked trout mousse!
  5. I’ve been seriously digging on Neil Diamond lately. “Solitary Man,” I could never tire of you! And you’ve got to check out Neil Diamond Parking Lot, a remake of Heavy Metal Parking Lot with all the big-haired, sweater wearing ladies that kneel at the altar of the Diamond. A must-see.
  6. Furry jackets are my Achilles heel. Can’t resist ‘em! Modeled here by the lovely Jeana Sohn.
  7. …And the same goes for big ol’ beads. This Mociun necklace is on my wish list.
  8. Design Observer’s intrepid Accidental Mysteries series surfaces all kinds of provocative images and artwork, including a collection of masks from around the world.
  9. I love ambling over to Folk Streams and watching a short or three. This national preserve of hard-to-find documentary films highlights the wonder of American folk and roots cultures, free and streaming for the public. After taking in a lovely piece about cowgirls I stumbled upon a documentary about “Grandma’s Bottle Village.” The grandma in question, Tressa Prisbrey, created her first house (composed of bottles found at the dump) to hold her 17,00 pencils. From there her empire grew and grew, and at 84 she was still spritely and creating. Read more about Tressa’s life and work here.
  10. Butch Anthony’s cabin — full of recycled bits, white cotton and beautiful bone chandeliers — is simplicity and art and goodness. Get the video tour of all this, and his Museum of Wonder, here.

    I can never get enough of Alison’s picks (and I love the hot pops of orange in these). That eye cuff has been haunting my dreams.

    I didn’t have to look any further than #1 to know I was in love – I LOVE that movie, Death Becomes Her! So amazing and great and funny and weird. Just my kind of fun.
