I love beetles. And dead butterflies. They give me the jeebies, but in a good way. So, of course I'm dying to visit The Evolution Store, a fantastic shop in New York with a taxidermy and entomology department (which was featured on Unruly Things). Before you freak out at the though of decorative dead insects and rodents, consider this- It's part beautiful and part creepy, which is always a recipe for something magical!
P.S.-Before I die, I will have a framed collection of beetles hanging on my wall. But for now, take a look at some of my favorites:

Who said Moths aren't beautiful??
My favorite five beetles have bulgy eyes, looks like moss, are spotted, are blue, and look like Edward Scissorhand.
