i spy: a painted flapper, art deco architecture, a handsome absurdist

I glean the images for these posts from my Tumblr blog, alwaysalwaysalwaysthesea, which is basically what the inside of my brain looks like at any given moment.  February may be a short month, but to look at my Tumblr, it was a busy one.  Yes, let's face it, a huge portion of my Tumblr right now is Christoph Waltz.  I don't apologize for this.  (And, as an aside:  hey bloggers?  Stop apologizing for what you do or don't post.  You don't have to do this.  Really.)  It's my blog, my brain, and Waltz to me is what I imagine a shot of serotonin would feel like to someone who has Seasonal Affective Disorder.  So there!  But even aside from all the Waltz goodness, there were an awful lot of other things that were inspiring me last month.  

Have a look.

  1. I love that photo of Katharine Hepburn and I really want to take a stroll down that road in West Flanders, Belgium.

  2. The Third Man is such an incredible film. I simply loved Joseph as the good guy for a change. And my books need a LV trunk.
