My family part III

Possibly the most Ukrainian photo of all time, 1950

My grandma teaching in Odessa 1963/1970

My great-aunt Anya, I wish there were more photos of the house behind her!

My grandma and friends (I see why she loves when I do my hair in crown braids now)


My auntie on the right in a handmade costume


If my great-aunt was a young lady now, she’d totally be a fashion blogger.




I also made a little collection of the place/date stamps from some of the photos, I think they’re lovely:

I’m not dead

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

Just very busy! I’m quickly approaching scary deadlines for the final year of my degree (two months left OMG) while also trying to sort out my life post-graduation, that kind of thing. I have so many things to blog about, I don’t even know where to start!

These are some sketchbook pages from my trip to Russia. Mostly from museums, scribbling down nonsense on the go or on the train/plane.

The Russian Decorative, Applied and Folk Arts Museum in Moscow was one of my favourite museums from Russia. I loved everything and took photos like a fiend, so there’ll be a part 2 (and possibly 3) soon! You can read more about it here.
