The front page of Etsy was lovely today, I'm glad I caught it! (click to see bigger)
'Sally In the Woods'
a new wrist cuff ready for listing tonight; hand-dyed crochet scraps, vintage sequin-sprinkled netting, custom-dyed eyelet lace trim, Victorian medieval style button, vintage embellishments, 1930s coat lining.
The costumes of A Series of Unfortunate Events (I love the production design in this entire movie- oh to live at Olaf's mansion!)
'Savoy' by Langley
'Shady Lane' by Midwinter
1970s-1980s farmhouse kitchen style. None of the gingham and raffia, all of the iron and stone. I especially love the second plate with the cow parsley; silhouettes of trees and dried grasses are really getting to me lately- I can't shake the feeling and nor do I want to, there's something comforting in it that echoes my early childhood.
One more thing- a new discovery- Locationworks.com They have the most amazing online database of house available for filming, the rustic/ruined/abandoned locations are absolutely breath-taking.
One house I have fallen in love with I have dubbed Greenhall Manor.
I love looking at this site (and haven't finished exploring it by half) but I must admit I cannot drift around it for too long without my heart breaking at these gorgeous old houses going to wreck and ruin. I know they cost a king's ransom to heat (though a few solar panels on the roof would solve that!) and upkeep- I just hope whoever owns them is using the location fees to ensure that the house never actually crumbles, despite it looking so. That would be my perfect house.
