My Breath Catches and Im left... Speechless

Once upon a time a few decades ago, there was a really unusual type of art that was in style that just really struck a chord with me. It was those huge sad eyes that were brought back into style a few years ago by Puss-n-Boots when the first Shrek came out.

When I was little, I had some of those velvet prints on my wall in my room with this type of artwork. And in the 80's when the Eels came out with the album "Beautiful Freak", using big eyes on their cover art, I fell in love with the style again.

Just the other day, wandering the Etsy treasuries, I discovered a shop that once more brings to life that love I have for this style of artwork. And this is how I fell in love with today's feature shop, AdoptAnAlien and the artist behind it as well!

Now, I have to warn you. Going into Lindsey
Banker's shop is kind of like wandering into the pound to visit the lost souls there. You go in to visit, and come out wanting to take every single creature inside home to love and care for.

Not only is her shop filled with some of the most creative and inventive critters I've ever seen, but the colors are just breathtaking. Bright and vibrant, Lindsey's shop is filled with a cornocopia of beautiful shades that are sure to catch the eye and inspire.

Each little alien creature from Adopt An Alien is one-of-a-kind and comes with its own birth certificate; and the shop includes not just toys but has a selection of alien keychains as well.

This is really a shop you don't want to miss, you'll love the browse and you're sure to find an alien to fall in love with too. In fact, if you're like me, you might end up falling in love with all of them!
