Taking a short break from my uni revision to do more work on my Victorian corset (late 19th century pattern from @ateliersylphe ). This is after my 3rd modification where I have reduced the waist and hips as well as added 1.5" length to the whole thing. Next I need to get a greater waist reduction and solve some wrinkling at the back. Hopefully I can get it to have a 2" gap when lacing too. #photos #photography #blackbutler #cosplayer #cutecosplay #cosplay #kuroshitsuji #cielphantomhivecosplay #cielphantomhive #corset #cosplaymodel #cosplaying #cosplayphotography #cosplaylife #historical #historicalsewing #ukcosplay #ukcosplayer

When you have true friends they always know for sure what you would love to have. I always considered Marie Antoinette a bewitching character so one of my best friends got this notebook and pen at the Palace of Versailles for me #versailles #marieantoinette #french #goodies #bffgoals #presents #luxury #historical
İzzet Mehmet Paşa Camii - Safranbolu - Tamamen kesme taştan yapılmış olan cami, Fevkani Camiler grubu içinde düşünülebilecek özellikler taşır. Küçük bir külliyeyi oluşturan, eğimli araziye uyumlu bir şekilde yerleşen yapılardan camiye 10 basamaklı merdivenlerle ulaşılır. Yapının ana mekanını örten kubbeye pandantiflerle geçilmekte aradaki kasnağa ise pencereler açıldığı görülmektedir. Köşelerdeki ağırlık kuleleri yapıyı sınırlar. Namaz kılma alanı kare biçiminde olup eni boyu 13.5 metredir. Minber ve mihrabı çok zengindir. Mihrabın üzerinde Padişah III. Selim’in tuğrası vardır. İçindeki kalem işleri, bezemeleri, çok köşeli kalem gibi zarif minare gövdesi ile külah ve alemi bu zarafete layık bir şekilde yapılmıştır. 1902-1903 ve 1990 yıllarında onarım gören caminin külliyesi içinde kütüphane, abdesthane, iki çeşme ve vakıf dükkanları yer alır. Cami ve avlusu altından geçen Akçasu deresi üzerine yapılan kemerler üzerine oturmaktadır. - #weekendactivity #backpacker #lifeontheroad #ontheroad #wanderlust #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #architecture #historical #religious #mosque #ottoman #oldtown #backpacking #wanderer #nofilter #safranbolu #karabük #turkey 🇹🇷 #walk 👣
Jornada Mogollon mask rock artwork Cave Kiva, Hueco Tanks . There are over 200 Jornada Mogollon painted masks around Hueco Tanks. These were found in a cave (Cave Kiva) on North Mountain . It took our group the good part of an hour to find these masks with vague directions from park rangers, such as "go past the boulder that looks like a duck towards the one that looks like an alligator." Needless to say we found many "ducks" and "alligators" on the way... In the end, we did find the cave and squeezed between walls to view these prehistoric artworks. Sitting in the dark comfort and cozy protection of this cave felt so instinctively human, and I could see why people in the past we drawn to the spot . Hueco Tanks is an oasis in a desert, as it's huecos act as reservoirs of water. It attracted many groups through history to its craggy landscape. Today much of the park is protected to help preserve the cultural artifacts and heritage of the land . #huecotanks #Texas #elpaso #rockart #artifact #conservation

hi guys napıyosunuz bakalım??? Bugün sırasıyla @alsancakdostlarboyozfirini , Konak'ta şu an adını hatırlayamadığım ama editle yazacağım kırtasiyeye, Kızlar Ağası Hanı yani Kemeraltı'na ve oradan da Bornova'da bulunan @komunpub 'a geldik. 🍴 Alsancak'ta Dostlar Fırını'nda güzelce patlıcanlı, sade, Ege otlu ve enginarlı boyoz aldık. Yanına İzmir tulum peyniri ve çay aldık. Boyozların tadı efsane iyi, enginar görmedim hiç hayatımda etçil olduğumdan ötürü. İlk defa denedim ama onu bile çok beğendim. 🍴Sade boyoz çok yağlıydı diğerlerine göre, cidden hiçbir şeyle doymayan bana iki boyoz yetti de arttı. Çok tazelerdi zaten, İzmir'de yaşayıp da boyoz sadece 1-2 defa deneyen biri olmaktan utanıyorum ama gerçekten çok lezzetlilerdi tavsiye edilir 😍 ☕ İkinci gittiğimiz yer ise Kızlarağası Hanı idi. En bilindik kahvecisi Ömer Usta Kahvecisi imiş o yüzden biz de orada fincanda yapılan Türk kahvesi içtik. Gerçekten çok lezzetliydi. Ağıza gelen telve pek hoş değildi ama sonraları telve yoğunluğu azaldı. Türk kahvesi suyla 7.5 Türk lirası, susuz 6 türk lirası. Ayrıca handa çok fazla nostaljik eşya var. El yapımı kupalar vs çok çeşitli ürünler ve hediyelik eşya bulabilirsiniz. 🍝 Son olarak gittiğimiz yer ise Komün Pub oldu. Sayfasına bakarsanız cidden çok güzel kampanyaları olduğunu görebilirsiniz. Vejetaryen pizza 8 türk lirası, sosisli pizzası 9 türk lirası ve 26 cm, yediğim bu noodle ise 13 türk lirası, kuzu wrap ve patates akşam 7'ye kadar 8 türk lirası ve çok güzeldi. Aralarından en beğenmediğim yediğim noodle oldu -bahtsız bedeviyim çünkü- Onun haricinde diğerleri çok güzel. Noodle'da da sevmediğim şey o acı tat ve fazla büyük doğranmış biberler oldu üzerinden 5 saat geçti ama hâlâ kötü tat ağzımda. Diğer kampanyaları için sayfasına bakmayı unutmayın 🤞👍 Her şey hallolduktan sonra derse gelmeyi de ihmal etmedim tabi ve beceri dersine katıldım. Umarım siz de iyi bir gün geçirmişsinizdir görüşmek üzere 🤩🤩 #izmir #konak #alsancak #kahve #turkishcoffee #turkish #türkkahvesi #coffeetime #blog #dailyblog #blogger #daily #social #boyoz #çay #tea #teatime #noodle #historical #history #nostalji #nostaljik #goodtime #everymoment

İzzet Mehmet Paşa Camii - Safranbolu - 3. Selim'in saltanatında 1794-1798'de sadrazamlık yapan İzzet Mehmet Paşa, 1743'de doğduğu ilçeye İstanbul'daki Nuruosmaniye Camisi'nin adeta küçük bir modelini 1796'da inşa ettirdi. Cami, 18. yüzyılda batı etkilerinin Türk mimarisine yansıdığı eserler arasında gösteriliyor. Mihrabının üzerinde Padişah 3. Selim'in tuğrası olan İzzet Mehmet Paşa Camisi, içindeki kalem işleri, bezemeleri, çok köşeli kalemi andıran minare gövdesinin yanı sıra külah ve alemiyle estetik unsurlar yansıtıyor. Örtü elamanları dıştan kurşunla kaplı olma özelliğiyle Safranbolu'daki camiler içinde tek olan yapı, mihrabı, minberi, kalem işleri ve parmaklıklarına kadar bütünlük duygusu oluşturuyor.. - #weekendactivity #backpacker #lifeontheroad #ontheroad #wanderlust #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #architecture #historical #religious #mosque #ottoman #oldtown #backpacking #wanderer #nofilter #safranbolu #karabük #turkey 🇹🇷 #walk 👣
Santa Maria Maior de Lisboa aka Lisbon Cathedral is known as Sé de Lisboa for the local folks. It is the oldest church in Lisbon. Construction of the building started in 1147 and throughout the time church had seen many restorations and parried countless big earthquakes. Due to these reasons, you can see different effects of architectural movements. All romanesque, gothic baroque, neoclassiccal and rococon movements have their influences and this makes the cathedral one of the most special sanctuary on the planet. Lisbon Cathedral is in the heritage list of Portugal since 1910. 📷:@visit_lisbon #lisbona #lisboa #portogallo #portugal #lisbon #historical #touristic #travel #travellisbon #visitlisbon #destinations #belem #lisboncruiseport #cruise #cruises #cruiselife #cruiser #port #SédeLisboa #SantaMariaMaiordeLisboa

🇮🇹Charles Ponzi🇺🇸 (March 3, 1882 - January 18, 1949) was born in Lugo, Italy. His full name was Carlo Pietro Giovanni Guglielmo Tebaldo Ponzi. His family was once fairly wealthy but had fallen on hard times and struggled financially. Charles took up work in a post office early on, but soon was accepted into the University of Rome La Sapienza. His richer friends considered the university a "four-year vacation", and he was inclined to follow them around to bars, cafés, and the opera. This resulted in Ponzi spending all his money, and four years later he was broke and without a degree. His family encouraged him to go to the United States and return rich as so many other Italians were doing at the time. Having gambled the rest of his money away, Charles Ponzi arrived in Boston in 1903 with $2.50 to his name. He quickly learned English and spent the next few years doing odd jobs along the East Coast, eventually taking a job as a dishwasher in a restaurant, where he slept on the floor. He managed to work his way up to the position of waiter, but was fired for shortchanging the customers and theft. By 1907 he was living in Montréal, Canada and worked as an assistant teller for Luigi Zarossi, an Italian banker. Here Ponzi learned real financial chicanery. Zarossi was paying 6% interest on bank deposits (double the going rate at the time) and was growing rapidly as a result. Ponzi eventually rose to bank manager, only to discover the bank was in serious financial trouble because of bad real estate loans, and that Zarossi was funding the interest payments not through profit on investments, but by using money deposited in newly opened accounts. The bank failed soon after and Zarossi fled to Mexico. In dire straights, Ponzi forged a cheque for $423.28 and was quickly arrested. He spent three years in a jail outside Montréal, and was released in 1911. Following his release he was promptly arrested again after he was caught smuggling illegal immigrants into the US from Italy. The following years he spent moving from job to job and getting married to an Italian woman in Boston. In the summer of 1919 is when he began his famous swindling. [continued in the comments]

Currently drinking coffee in bed. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ // See those two front doors? One leads to our living room + the other to the master bedroom. Of course, we never use those doors ourselves, but every once in a while we will have a mail man or someone come to the front of the house to knock on the door or leave a package. Always makes me laugh! It’s over 100+ years old so the design is a taddddddddd different. . . . . . #thisoldhome #farmhouse #realfarmhouse #farmhouselove #farmhousestyle #pursuepretty #lovelysquares #howyouhome #farmlife #ranchwiferanchlife #documentlife #momblog #motherhood #homesweethome #home #creatingmyhome #mycountryhome #mycountryliving #instahome #homemaking #farmhousehappy #farmhousestyle #myhousebeautiful #magnoliahome #historical #fixerupper #americanfarmhousestyle #bhghome #countrylivingmag #oldtree #momlife
