Fopperies & Frivolities

Ask  
Twitter

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.

I wanted to post more on Tumblr today, but I was still a little too distracted by the fact that I met the one and only Nick Cave last night!
 I went to his show at Keswick Theatre, and thanks to fortuitously striking up a conversation with someone who turned out to be an old friend of his, I got an invite to go along with his group to the aftershow. And while I spent most of my time there chatting with the band, I did also get to talk for a bit with the man himself. (The Bad Seeds are seriously great guys too though. And super sweet.)
Bucket list item ticked off now.
(Now let’s see how many of Tumblr’s youngster user base even knows who this amazing man is.)
