On the Hunt for Curiosities

Curiosities. One of my favourite words and one that brings up many different associations. Cabinets of curiosities were small “wonder rooms”, a bit like museums, objects that were considered extraordinary or aroused interest. It makes me think of suspicious objects in jars, strange skeletons, misshaped animals and unknown rocks. As a heads up, I will claim creative license and apply the term to anything that I find curious and interesting. Which is basically everything. Sorry.

Kelvingrove museum is a beautiful building with an intriguing mix of items and I love just walking through with no aim at all. These are some old photos I found from one afternoon spent strolling through the museum in search of the weird and inspirational.

A love affair – warning: steamy content

English/Swedish

I have a couple of new lovers in my life: one is short but classic and one taller and slightly more dressed up. Having only one is silly. I have more than two, obviously, but these two are my current favourites and they are useful for different times of day. My short classic one is a lifesaver in the morning as I am really not a morning person and need any motivation I can find for getting out of bed. But they can be used at any point really…before sleep, after sleep, during a film, perhaps in a drink. Endless possibilities. Not to mention the fact that they are gorgeous and photograph really well.

Jag har två nya älsklingar i mitt liv: en kort men klassisk varelse och en lite längre men mer välklädd variant. Att bara ha en funkar ju inte. Jag har fler än två om jag ska vara riktigt noga, men de här två är just nu favoriterna. Framförallt den lilla är bra på morgonen då jag behöver all motivation jag kan få för att kliva upp. Annars funkar de ju vid alla tillfällen, som före och efter sömn, med en film, i en drink. Sen blir de ju snygga på kort också, se ovan.

Happy Friday!
