My boyfriend and I made an Etsy shop with horns and flower crowns! 
We'll be adding more things soon, but right now we have a few things up if you'd like to check them out. 
I've also added an option to ask for a custom order (you can see the button on the left side), which we're taking right now if you're interested in having something specific done.
Here's a coupon for 10% off which is good until 03/23: TUMBLRCOUPON

You should reblog this if you can to spread it around, we'd really appreciate it!

Submerged Churches.

These churches from all over the world are not victims of natural disaster, they all sit in the valley of a reservoir. Many reservoirs were created in valleys with small towns or villages nestled in them, the benefit of having reservoirs always outweighed the cost in relocating a small population. In many of these settlements the religious buildings were the tallest and once the valleys were flooded they could still be seen poking out of the water in a surreal post apocalyptic manner. Lots of them still survive, making more of an appearance every time the water level drops.

Among these examples are Ladybower, Graun, Panta de Sau, Tehri and Potosi

the waitomo caves of new zealand’s northern island, formed two million years ago from the surrounding limestone bedrock, are home to a endemic species of bioluminescent fungus gnat (arachnocampa luminosa, or glow worm fly) who in their larval stage produce silk threads from which to hang and, using a blue light emitted from a modified excretory organ in their tails, lure in prey who then become ensnared in sticky droplets of mucus.

photos from spellbound waitomo tours and forevergone, blue polaris, and martin rietze. (more cave photos) (more bioluminescence photos)
