Knuckle duster back pocket fades are like the coolest shit, do you sell switchblade combs too?

As a kid, I used to dream of ordering those from the back pages of Li'l Lotta comics along with x-ray specs, Chinese finger traps and sea monkeys

Nowadays (from newspaper adverts) we dream of ordering beige elasticated waist trousers, zip up footwear and electric hair clippers that can trim pets too!

The guy who invented all that bullshit (Harold Von Braunhut) was a nazi so don't feel too bad that you wasn't supporting his cause @mondo  :D

Mandy Payne's 'Extraordinariness of Ordinariness'

fullsizeoutput_2ee5.jpeg

Painted on concrete panel so it has some lovely imperfections, you can see it displayed here at her Out of Time exhibition at Huddersfield Art Gallery

(skip to 17.30)

I mounted it within a tray frame because it was going to sit at the side of her 'Everything of Value Has Been Removed' (Park Hill) and i wanted them both to be in a white frame.

Mandy lives just up the road from me so ive been lucky enough to visit her home studio a few times.

Took me a while to getting these hung up this weekend.  Impossible to get good shots given the position. 

Thanks to @smoothsailor for pointing me in these guys direction

This one might divide opinion and that's understandable, i'm not into killing things for the sake of decoration either.
 
A friend of mine's dining room is reminiscent of a Victorian curiosity shop (his pet chameleon hangs out there too) he has a wall of framed insects and say what you will, they're certainly interesting, like those entomology drawers in the natural history museum, my kid is obsessed by it, so when it was his birthday he let the boy choose one, this one..

“Don't talk to us or our highly hydrated child ever again!“ :D

got the big water bottles recently, klean kanteen 64oz/1,9l wide mouth, single walled.  Mostly intended for outdoor use. The “tiny“ one is my daily beater,, 800ml single walled mizu. Best for daily use and stillund going after about 10 years. These things are indestructible :D

The chandelier in our library - probably French Art Deco 1920-1930’s, possibly earlier (1910’s).

found it in a vintage, modernist design store decades ago - fits the apartment & room perfectly - never getting tired of it.

love the details…

doesn't fit the anchor at the ceiling, but I don’t mind.

Parquet deserves a place in this thread

That’s right! I intend to feature it soon…

But today I have to point out that I still like these recycled coffee mugs very much.

its made from recycled coffee husks and intended to re-cycled at its lifecycle end - they are also setting up a cup swap network…

Hario skerton mill I got a few years ago. Only used for specialty whole bean coffees, grinding by hand is too much of a hastle to be part of the daily routine and don't have an electric mill right now.

Still, great thing, looks great and works great as everything I have by Hario. Got a one cup filter as well.
