How to Make Leaf Skeletons – Easy method for rapidly skeletonizing leaves.

Bat Skeleton Necklace – Unbelievably gorgeous sterling silver anatomical bat skeleton jewelry. Far too expensive for my budget, but whoa. (via Beans)

Steampunk Advent Calendar – Truly epic decorative calendar.

Needle Felt a Voodoo Doll Pincushion – Tutorial for making a cute little voodoo doll. If you’ve been looking for an introductory project to try needle felting, this looks like a fun one.

Years – Artist Bartholom√§us Traubeck figured out a way to play the rings of a tree like a record. The results are rather creepy. (I still say I’d be more impressed if the thing had played “Norwegian Wood.”) (Hat tip to xJane)

Flight 404 – Creepy and surreal Flash…thing…which purports to be the investigation of a mysterious plane crash.

Grenade Oil Lamps – Real army surplus grenades in three styles (fragmentation, flash, or high impact) repurposed into unusual oil lamps.

Weird – Not an insult. (via The Bloggess)

Zombie Valentine Candy – Because nothing says “I love you” quite like a candy box full of needle-felted zombie parts.

Three niche history books about London that look interesting:
A Sexual History of London
Necropolis: London and Its Dead
London Under: The Secret History Beneath the Streets
