kelsey has shared over 300 of her vintage family photographs on flickr. they are so cool, i must have looked at every single one. i wouldn’t be surprised if one day i start breaking into people’s houses just so i can sit in the dark looking at their old photos… what the what! ps: kiekies means snapshots in afrikaans ;)
the nationaal archief in the hague preserves almost one thousand years of history, in the form of over 110 kilometres of archives, almost 300,000 maps and drawings and more than 2 million photos.
if i had serious money to burn & i actually knew how to work an auction, i’d bid on some pretty things at bukowski’s
many of the images i’m drawn to lately are some shade of pink, even though it’s not a colour i readily introduce into the scheme of my own life (psh, i don’t really have a scheme)
kate told me about this flickr group called wild women of the past, which made me almost giddy with excitement. i recognised the images of one of my favourite flickr members giuseppe, whose collection of vintage italian photos are highly recommended. click on the images for sources…
you know, i’ve never been a crochet kind of gal, and i’m not into collecting things like stones or shells – stuff i usually associate with south african holiday homes or your gran’s house. so naturally margaret oomen‘s beautiful crochet bound pebbles and stones took me by surprise. she says, “one of my favorite quotes is frank lloyd wright : study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. it will never fail you”
