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.
