Fopperies & Frivolities


A lady living in Philadelphia; an ex-pat, an occasional artist; an enthusiastic but unskilled cook; a vintage lover; an aspiring crafter. Things that make my heart flutter: top hats, old silver candlesticks, costumes, books, Victoriana, peacock feathers, masks, stockings, burlesque, feminism, retro pin-ups, kitsch, fantasy, sci-fi, and all manner of misfits and oddities.

I blog about my Russian heritage, steampunk, Sherlock Holmes (in his multiple modern variations), art, pretty clothes, pretty ladies, and whatever tv shows catch my fancy.

It’s been so gorgeous outside lately.

Have I mentioned I love my neighborhood?
