Fabergé Friday

Well. Since it's Easter, let's take a look at another Fabergé egg this Friday! This little egg pendant was made sometime between the years 1908 and 1917!


The egg is enameled with a royal blue zig zag pattern on a pearl white ground.


On both ends the pattern turns into six-pointed stars.


The hight of the egg is 5/8'' (1,6 cm), and the workmaster behind the pendant is Anders Nevalainen.


Happy Easter!!!

Full Moon

Source


For this month's Full Moon music, I have chosen a classical piece that gives me the vision of splendidly dresses people, waltzing around in a big, beautiful ballroom! It's a waltz from the suite Masquerade, by Aram Khachaturian.

Katerina Plotnikova

Fine Art photographer Katerina Plotnikova describes her work as "another tale about wonderland", and when you look at her photos you understand what she's talking about...As I have said before, I like photos and paintings that make me dream, and this is exactly what Katerina's photos do. They make your mind travel to a mystical and serene country, inhabited by princesses, queens, and woodland creatures. I don't want to just look at these images. I want ti be in them!

Erotic Hats

I happen to have a friend who is a sex-inspirer...She is also a milliner. Her name is Marika Smith, and right now she has a few of her hats exhibited in the basement club at Berns in Stockholm. This is also where the boudoir boutique Pom Pom Parlour is based. Pom Pom Parlour is a high class erotic boutique, which offers it's customers everything from very stylish clothes and shoes, to lingerie, whips, sex toys, and books, to celebrate sexuality and femininity. So together with Pom Pom, Miss Smith created her exhibition - of not any hats - but erotic hats!


I had been invited to the opening night, and since it was all about hats, I put on a hat made by Magdalena Kellerman. It contains Mildred - a cousin to Milfred. Or well...At least part of her...


When I arrived I was greeted by Marika herself, pictured above. And I was glad to see most of the guests were wearing hats! 


Marika isn't just good at sex and hats, she is also a master when it comes to making things that makes you gain weight...So for this occasion she had created a whole chocolate buffet!!! But now to some of her hats that were on display! They all had erotic themes...


This one is decorated with a pair of mini handcuffs. Here resting on the book Sins, which is Pom Pom Parlour's own collection of erotic novels. I happen to own that one, and I can highly recommend it...


This hat has been decorated with "something" white. And it ain't snow...


This one has an old, lesbian print on it. Grrrr...


Here is my favorite in the exhibition! I could probably go to a very fancy party in this one, and get compliments on my old-style pretty hat. BUT! If you actually look at it, you can see that it is formed as a vagina - complete with a perl-clit! Haha! Love it!


Of course I had too take a peek at Pom Pom Parlour too! One thing I have spent a lot of money on in that boutique is shoes by one of my favorite shoe designers - Minna Parikka! I sort of like these ones...


...But I love this pair of bunny shoes! There weren't any left in my size though. Thank God...


Other fun things at Pom Pom were, for example, these penis-panties....


...This lovely set, that I happen to want...


...And all kinds of books. Here accompanied by my drink.


There was also an elephant...

Among all the guests I met the always fabulous Mrs Murphy! She had brought her own photographer, and dragged me into a very impromptu, but also very interesting photo shoot...

The evening then ended with wine upstairs in Bern's lovely, crystal chandelier-hung main room, together with two of my friends - one Italian, and one French. When you hang out with people from those countries, sex jokes are made about every second minute. Let's just say I had a really good time...

Fabergé Friday

Fabergé didn't just create the bigger Easter Eggs he was so famous for. He also made small egg-pendants, to be worn on a chain as a necklace. Here is one, an Eternity Egg Pendant, made sometime between 1908 and 1907!


This little egg is covered in strawberry-red enamel over a guilloché ground. On both the back and the front sits a gold arrow, decorated with one diamond each.


The hight of the egg is 11/16'' (1,8 cm), and it was made by workmaster Henrik Wigstrom.


It can be bought at Romanov Russia for 14,000 USD.
