Steampunk Book Pages


Here are some Steampunk inspired images printed onto vintage dictionary pages. I love the color of the balloon against the golden patina of the book page.



Octopus




Doesn't the blue shadow look like he just let go some ink?
Love!

Something New and Something Old





Hello,


Just wanted to share one of the books that I will be reading in the near future. YEAH!


FINAL AMELIA BOOK DUE TO PUBLISH IN 2017! 

WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT HARPER-COLLINS HAS NOW ACCEPTED A FINISHED VERSION OF “THE PAINTED QUEEN” – a manuscript partially written by Elizabeth Peters and finished by her dear friend, mystery writer Joan Hess, with help from another dear friend, Egyptologist Salima Ikram. The book goes back to fill us in about the Emersons’ activities during the excavation season when the famed Nefertiti bust was discovered. The projected publication date is July 2017!

So that was the new and now this is the old. I found some lovely illustrations that fit nicely with this book. They are fashion plates from 1912-1913 the time period in which the book is set. I can totally picture Amelia and Nefret wearing these lovely dresses.




My goal is now to go back and reRead the series in order of the Archaeological Season in which the story takes place.

Crocodile on the Sandbank 1884-85
The Curse of the Pharaohs 1892-93
The Mummy Case 1894-95
 The Lion in the Valley 1895-96
Deeds of the Disturber 1896
The Last Camel Died at Noon 1897-98
The Snake, the Crocodile and the Dog 1898-99
The Hippopotamus Pool 1899-1900
Seeing a Large Cat 1903-04
The Ape Who Guards the Balance 1906-07
Guardian of the Horizon 1907-08
A River in the Sky 1910
The Falcon at the Portal 1911-12
The Painted Queen 1912-13
He Shall Thunder in the Sky 1914-15
Lord of the Silent 1915-16
The Golden One 1916-17
Children of the Storm 1919-20
The Serpent on the Crown 1922-23
The Tomb of the Golden Bird 1922-23


If you like a good mystery set in a lovely historic time and exotic location then I hope you will check out the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters.

Classic Banana Republic



I am totally in love with classic Banana Republic Catalogs. Everything in them is just so my style.










This is perfect, my new favorite thing is houndstooth. I have started making a line of scarves that I call the Ascot Scarf.  My photo-type has tan and black houndstooth wool on one side and black velvet on the other. It has very clean and classic lines, is reversible and looks great dressed up with your favorite vintage pin.

I'll get some pictures posted as soon as I can get a photo shoot set up. Coordinating time with my models is not always easy.
