i love it when people point me in the direction of really fascinating websites, or when i just happen to stumble upon them. and i love it when they remind me of all the weird things in our world...objects, places to visit, stories, things i might be lucky enough to see sometime. here are two sites i've spent some recent time with...please visit, but know that you may get lost for hours!
the richard balzer collection: one man's cabinet of curiosities
atlas obscura: curious and wondrous travel destinations
also, i'd really love to have this. and would love to wallpaper my future powder room like this.
