War Bonnets...

Reading excerpts from The Indian How Book...
Feeding my fascination with warbonnets aka feather headdresses.
Kind-of a warrior's resumé of sorts.

circle - circle, dot - dot

Stumbled upon the work of Sebastiaan Bremer the other day...
Nothing short of amazing. I was at first pulled in by the ink-spotted
photos in bright colors, but further digging and i found
these super amazing white on photo works... (see below)...
*all pics from his site, amazing, except for the shiteous flash animations. Barf.
somehow this is a photo.. swirly whatevers...

then a closer look:

crazy pointillist madness... amazing.
tried to figure out where i'd seen similar?
M/M Paris art for Vespertine? Kiiiiiiinda.
And even more so - Aubrey Beardsley...
spooky and beautiful...
currently listening to: (cause it's sorta the same)

Sickday delirium...

feeling pretty sh*tty yesterday; i blame asthma.
In my delirium and boredom - this is what i snagged off the www...
In no particular order.

**as ever, click on the pics to see them larger. Especially the Christopher Olinet installation!!!!  

Amazing clock from the 70's or 80's, i forget. Also comes as a wristwatch..
NEED NEED NEED for the apartment... Is it DIY-able???
One cannot have enough brown ankle boots. Since these aren't an option i'm thinking of making my own... sans buckle, but with tassled ties. Next weekend is my first free one in FOREVS. 
Gonna DIY it, i think... (These vintage beauties found on one of those cute-girl-style-blogs that are multiplying like rabbits, so of course I forgot which one! kill me.) 
Christopher Olinet installation.. Gorge.
Clearly the dreamiest illustrations ever, courtesy of:
lastly - some genius made a coffee table book about libraries.
These scans pulled from used books blog

Latest obsession: Gypsy houses.
So f*cking rad. Crazy interiors, batshit crazy exteriors.
I need to see these in person. And perhaps do a little redecorating in
the ol' apartment...
Images culled from various spots on the www....
And let's not forget the exteriors, eh???
happy weekending!
