Made an autumn-themed spread last week and I really like it! :‘) this old vintage postcard is from a friend who lives in France and I love it so much!! I woke up at 4 am today and I‘m feeling sooo dead but I still managed to participate in a team meeting at work and finally signed my work contract :) I‘m very happy. My fifth semester starts this week and I‘m really looking forward to having lectures again 💛

This was for a magazine photoshoot I recently did but all that clutter is mine (ft. vintage postcards, old letters from my penpal, copies of the New York Times, a Nat Geo map and Nat Geo magazine packets (DSLR))

A postcard of the coastal city, Oostende. The picture was taken on the 19th of August, 1907. In the early 20th century Oostende was a tourist attraction for mostly the upper class. Today not much of the original architecture shown in this photo remains, sadly.

Postcard from 1943 commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Dogfight for the Soul of Jesse Carstairs as waged between Sister Josephine Saranac and the scullery demon known as Travertine Gould at the Pinnacles on the Needles Highway, Custer State Park, Black Hills, South Dakota.

The incident became the basis for the Grammy-winning country and western ballad “The Devil Came to the Pinnacles on the Needles Highway, Custer State Park, Black Hills, South Dakota,” written and first recorded by Chester Keystone, and later popularized by Clarence Dupree of Clarence & the Publicly Disgraced Clergymen.

Though the song posits a clear-cut win for Sister Josephine and the Forces of Divine Rapture, the actual outcome was a bit more ambiguous, as the soul of 15-year-old Jesse Carstairs had already been harvested, shredded and fed to a breeding colony of shadow nips.
