I'm a fan fan!

Watching an old episode of 'Collectors' this evening, I saw a segment on a collection of vintage electric fans. There's a lot to love about the styling and cultural context of old fans; I did a Google image search and discovered these beauties (in various corners of the interwebs):


Lovely! I'm in the fan fanclub!

I'm in love!

.... oh yes, my heart is a-flutter for this little caravan, available in Britain now through Rockett St. George.


I'm not sure how practical it would be (like this snazzy little Airstream, designed to go with the Mini Cooper):

but I still think they're both just lovely!

Las Palmas

Funny or creepy?  I'm not quite sure, but I do like this odd little bar scene.

Back to the Future

I love this brilliant project by Argentinian photographer Irina Werning! She's done a wonderful job of faithfully recreating scenes and having her subjects re-enact photos from their childhood/younger years. (This makes me want to try and recreate some of my own pictures.)

On Valentine's Day my beloved gave me a cold (how very generous of him!) .... the poor dear had been laid up all weekend and since then we've been sniffling and coughing together. I lost my voice completely yesterday and it hasn't yet returned. Problem is, I'm scheduled to do quite an important presentation at Melbourne Uni this evening, and I haven't been able to find a replacement speaker ....

Hope they have a good microphone to capture my whispered words!
