I have the most incredible set of 6 German WWI postcards available for the shop soon, and honestly, they're amazing. They're MEANT to convey a dying soldier passing on a letter/message to another man to give to his sweetheart, I believe, but they just turned out looking...so homoerotic...

What really gets me is when you're reading a book and the chapter labels have, like, vines or floral details around them or something. it makes me so soft - just- the fact that someone was like 'ooh we can add beauty here, we totally should' and they did it

some antique store finds on this rainy day, two hundred years old bottles; the bigger is a Parisian hair oil product from 1900s, the other one once locally sold at the so called Elephant Apothecary in Bergen established in 1858. I based dating of them on the side seams, base type and top type. 🕰🗝🕯
