Collector's Items

This blog is my virtual scrapbook.
I try to give credits, link back and reference sources in all of my posts.
Please do not remove them, as I don't own any of these pictures, even if I altered them. Thanks.

Above left: Ring by Stephen Webster (from the ‘Midnight over the Caspian Sea’ collection), right: Ring by (one of my favorite contemporary designers) Lydia Courteille. Cufflinks from around 1890. I don’t like any of these, but again I find the similarities…quite uneccessary. Pictures from ProfessionalJeweller / NET-A-PORTER / Bentley & Skinner, all found somewhere on Pinterest (thanks to the pinners!).




Richard Felton Outcault  (1863 – 1928) is considered to have invented the modern comic strip. His best known characters are The Yellow Kid and Buster Brown. Fun fact: he has been working as the official illustration artist for Edison’s traveling exhibit of electric lighting. Picture from ARQUITECTURA, URBANISMO Y COMICS, more on the Cartoon Image Database

Holly Lane's mind-blowing carved frames. I also very much like her older works from 1988 - 1999.

Michael Allen's apartment in, yes, of course, Williamsburg, New York City.
The article describes him as “a reformed collector of collections, Michael is a designer and craftsperson who is equally drawn to country and city, organization and chaos, and both minimalism and maximalism.”
I can relate very well to this.
