Gothic Gardening – Five black plants “worth braving the sun for.” (via Burning Prairie)

Graveyard Photographs – Roundup of lovely detail photos in cemeteries.

Boston to Get Poe Statue – The city has chosen sculptor Stefanie Rocknak’s “Poe Returning to Boston,” which will be unveiled in October of this year.

O les mains – A surreal series of incredibly creepy digitally-manipulated images, showing limbs where they really shouldn’t be. NSFW for artistic nudity.

All Natural Arts – A variety of lovely artwork, including a bunch of tiny “sculptures” made from clock parts. (via Cat)

Jim Henson’s Labyrinth – I had no idea there was ever a novelization of the movie. It’s been out of print for a while, but is now available again. The novelization was overseen by Henson, and this version of the book includes some previously unpublished concept illustrations by Brian Froud.

Lace Steampunk Mask – Although the tutorial is designed for use with a machine-embroidered mask pattern which you’re supposed to purchase from them, the same general idea could be used with other masks.

Rossendale Fairies – A university lecturer claims to have inadvertently photographed fairies. Mmm hm.

Creature from the Black Lagoon Amigurumi – Oh my GAWD I have got to learn how to crochet.

Passover Cocktails for Each of the Ten Plagues – Too late for this year, but there’s always next time. I just adore that somebody took the effort to match drinks to plagues. (Hat tip to Kitten Herder)
