One-Line Bio

"...if I put my mind to it, I find everything interesting, and this puts me in a fever." M. Bashkirtseff 1875.


A few random things about me: I'm not attracted to sports in any way shape or form and I don't get reality tv. I am crazy about my husband and dog babies Mr. Nibbles and Little One...Yay for books both new and old. I don't own a Kindle but I would if I could...Passionate about history and old things...Love learning about women who blazed trails before me, progressive in my politics. Must say that I keep politics out of my blog 99% of the time. Not so much on FB. Just warning you in advance should we become friends. Don't want a difference in political opinions to mortify anyone by learning this later...The Victorian era through the 1920s fascinates me to no end...Proud member of the Steampunk world, in complete solidarity with those who love to play dress up.

What I'm listening to lately:
Unextraordinary Gentlemen, Abbey Park, Unwoman, Rasputina, Johnny Hollow, Radiola 1920s-1930s Jazz, The Big Broadcast 30-40s music, Don Carlos radio on Pandora, Rage Against the Machine, Interpol, Vernian Process, Clockwork Quartet, Dionysos (even though I don't speak french), Old School Funk and Beats Antique, Gogol Bordello, Circus Contraption and The Dresden Dolls...

FB Friend requests from like minded souls (and not so like minded, maybe we can learn a thing or two from one another!) are always welcome.
