So many places I’ve never been to … I have a whole world to experience before it’s too late, and I’m keeping a journal of it all as I go, so I’ll be able to enjoy the world all over again when I get back.
In the evenings I’ve been watching Classic Who to de-stress. And while I watch, I make envelopes out of vintage world atlases. (Atlasi?)
If you want to, you can even buy them.
Amelie has no boyfriend. She’s tried once or twice, but the results were a let down. Instead, she cultivates a taste for small pleasures: dipping her hand into sacks of grain, cracking creme brulee with a teaspoon, and skipping stones at St. Martin’s canal.
Nine TARDISes rest on the Earth with the colours of space-time shining through between them.
Tatting is a sturdy form of lacework that has been around since the Victorian era and is nearly a lost art. It is made by tying thousands of tiny knots using a shuttle. Unlike most kinds of lace, tatting will not unravel if the lace is cut.
This one-of-a-kind doily is roughly 17 inches in diameter. It is comprised of green, white, blue, and black thread, as well as two different variegated threads. Each TARDIS has eight panels (five blue and three white, indicating the windows and the “Pull to Open” sign), and a black bar with white pearlescent beads for the “Police Box” section. On top is a large iridescent bead for the TARDIS lamp.
Each section of the space-time background is unique and is adorned with random beads and picots (little loops in the thread). There are four different medium beads and five different small beads, including blue, green, yellow, white, clear, and silver. Each section also has at least one jump ring to add a bit of flare and texture.
The tatted TARDIS doily will look fantastic under a dish of bananas or a vase of roses in your own Whovian abode or that of your favourite geek. Alternatively, tatted lace is often framed and mounted on the wall to help preserve it against the elements.Available for sale here: (x)
This is the Englishest thing I’ve ever seen.
