I've posted a lot of pics with this beauty by @boho_dreamers but I really love the delicate and detailed design of the little silver rose so here is another closer look. Also these days I feel a little bit tired and less inspired than usual. Tell me what you like to do on cold days?
We are excited to have acquired this viewer! The viewfinder or stereo scope was the most popular viewing device in the Victorian era. Pictured: 3D Stereoscope. "Utilizing the principle of binocular vision a card bearing to images was viewed through a magnifying eyepiece; each eye saw a slightly different picture, something the brain reconciled by giving the wonderful effect of 3 dimensionality." #toy #victorian #victorianera #3d #3dimensional #photos #antique
Born in West Africa of Yoruba descent, Sarah Forbes Bonetta was captured in 1848, at the age of five, during the Okeadon War. King Gezo of Dahomy captured the city of Okeadon, sacrificing many inhabitants and leading the rest away into slavery. While her family were killed in the war, as the daughter of an African chief, Sarah was kept in captivity as a state prisoner, either to be presented to an important visitor, or to be sacrificed at the death of a minister or official to become his attendant in the next world. In June 1850 Captain Forbes, on board the Bonetta, arrived in Dahomey on a mission to negotiate the suppression of the slave trade. While there, he asked the King for the little girl as a present, whether for himself or on behalf of the Queen is not clear. The request was granted and the child was brought to England, being given the names of Forbes Bonetta, after the Captain and the ship. She lived at first with Captain Forbes's family, then, on 9 November, she was taken to Windsor Castle and received by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. The Queen paid for Sarah to be educated and saw her several times in the space of a few years. Sarah, a highly intelligent girl, developed a particular talent for music. She married in 1862 and later had a daughter, Victoria, to whom the Queen acted as godmother. - From the Royal Collection Trust.
How good are these skirtings looking! Fly AF! Sanded, primed and 2 coats of satinwood later and we can nearly have a functional living room 🥳 I’m also a big fan of a wee mid century classic so the pared-back decor in here should make their babalicious legs stand out . . #glasgowstyle #glasgowlife #hyggehome #woodburner #victorianhome #hygge #woodburnerstove #midcenturystyle #reno #midcenturyhome #woodburnerlove #victorianarchitecture #homerenovation #myhomestyle #hyggelife #victorianhouse #woodburnersofinstagram #midcentury #howihome #myhyggehome #victorianera #victorian #renovation

❥"Always keep an open mind and open bowels. Close the one and you become a bore: close both and you become a dead bore." ❥Elspeth Marr: A Victorian Lady's Guide to Life. Edited by Christopher Rush (2018) ❥Hilarious and witty encyclopaedic notes and life hacks written by a Victorian lady, Aunt Epp (1871-1947). ❥"Golfers: Never marry one. Hiccuping: Tell them that they've already hiccuped 76 times and the 77th hiccup means certain death. The shock of this intelligence, or the shock of the 77th hiccup itself, will either kill them or make them stop. Either way the hiccuping will come to an end. Insomnia: Intercourse works wonders for men, who will be snoring three seconds after, but not always for women. Otherwise, try onions. These are marvellous adversaries to insomnia and onions do not get you pregnant. Class: The only class to which you belong is the class of the individual, and in that class you are unique and beholden to none other." #books #kirjat #nonfiction #victorianera #victorianlife #19thcentury #victorianlady #funnyvictorians #victoriana #1800luku #funnybooks #bookstagram #bookphotography
