favorite shop friday: something's hiding in here

Something's Hiding in Here is one of the many creative endevors of Shauna and Stephen and I suppose the best category for their shop would be novelty. But that doesn't quite seem to do it justice.

Novelty: an article of trade whose value is chiefly decorative, comic, or the like and whose appeal is often transitory (definition from dictionary.com).

Ok, I guess their Paint by Number USA is mainly decorative...


...and their faux (real) bois charm is quite comical (get it?...it's real wood that's painted with fake wood grain!!...get it?!...hee hee!...)...

But I'll have to put my foot down with "tranisitory appeal". I mean, what is more timeless than a mustache on a stick?



The fake mustache has always been comical (and decorative, come to think of it) and always will be!

And take a look at these report card pennants...



...won't those elementary school grades of fail and incomplete haunt us all forever? (Don't worry...this set also includes "very good" and "pass.")

And, I don't know about you, but my wishes will continue to be granted by tossing coins in a fountain, blowing out all my birthday candles, and pulling on one of these...



But as I mentioned...this wonderful shop with anything but a transitory appeal (if you ask me) is only one of the many creative endevors of Shauna and Stephen...to keep tabs on all they do (including catching a glimpse of their truely incredible studio and home) don't miss thier blog: http://somethingshidinginhere.typepad.com/. And buy all of the above items (including many more variations of the fake mustache) at http://somethingshidinghere.etsy.com/.
