BAUBLE OF WONDER: Not meaning to go all braggy here, but we've been thaumatrope fans for a long time. But many people were fans of the thaumatrope before us, specifically in the Victorian era. The thaumatrope is essentially two pictures put back-to-back. When one spins them, voila! A new picture forms. Adorapop in the UK creates cool thaumatropian necklaces -- think birds and cages -- that are lovely even when the wearer is *not* spinning them and impressing people. THAUMATROPE TREND? If only we had one in time for the "Alice in Wonderland" event in Hollywood. The necklace is $28.50 US.
