“This may be a 17th C charmstone…where round crystals are found set in silver on a chain for dipping into liquids as charms against disease. Such crystal balls were often found in Northern European burials of the early Middle Ages (especially Germanic, Merovingian and Anglo-Saxon). Meaney suggests these balls were frequently complemented with a sieve-spoon and were mostly found in female burials.”

The age is not certain but might be 17th C. It is a charmstone of the kind represented in the collections of the NMS, where round crystals are found set in silver on a chain for dipping into liquids as charms against disease, see Hugh Cheape, Charms against witchcraft in Goodare and Martin and Miller, Witchcraft and belief in early modern Scotland . Meaney suggests these balls were frequently complemented with a sieve-spoon and were mostly found in female burials. Source: British Museum"

Easy Molding Update For a kitchen with a vintage vibe, glue gingerbread appliques (available at home centers) on door panels. These affordable wood pieces come in many styles and are easy to adhere to cabinet doors using wood glue. Kick up the vintage look by applying a thin coat of burnt umber glaze to the doors and gingerbread. Wipe off while wet to get desired effect.

Add Details. I love the idea of adding appliques to the painted cabinets or maybe a thin molding. Again though, what color to paint the cabinets?

Buddhists play an instrument called a kangling, translated as “leg” (kang) “flute” (ling), it is the Tibetan name for a trumpet made from a human femur. Tibetan Buddhists prefer to use the femur from the corpse of a criminal or a person who died a violent death, but in pinch the femur of a respected teacher may be substituted.
Human Thighbone Kangling - With its wailing, eerie sound, the bone trumpet, or kangling, is intrinsic to the otherworldly atmosphere created by the Chöd ritual. The kangling is part of an ensemble of sacred instruments that emerged from the tantric crucible of India some fifteen hundred years ago.

Edwardian Time Machine- 1888: Balloon Wedding
Balloon Wedding (1888) at the Rhode Island State Fair
The September 27, 1888, wedding of Margaret Buckley and Edward T. Davis was held at the Rhode Island State Fair. An estimated 40,000 watched as they entered the “special ‘bridal car’ of the balloon, held down by 24 men at guy ropes.” At dusk, the balloon landed in a swamp about thirty miles away. The wedding party was “obliged to cling to the ropes above the basket to keep out of the water.” Afterwards, Allen and the Davises reenacted their wedding for a photographer in a studio.

Ewald Redam (far left) was the principal athlete in a troupe of German strength performers who were active in the 20s. During WW I, Ewald, his Latvian life, Ludmilla, and two other athletes formed the Four Redams. The act was a great hit, even more remarkable because the women got as much attention for their strength feats as the men. In the 1930s, the group added two more strong women.
Odin ("The Furious One") is a major god in Germanic mythology, especially in Norse mythology. In many Norse sources he is the Allfather of the gods and the ruler of Asgard. In Norse mythology, Huginn (from Old Norse "thought") and Muninn (Old Norse "memory" or "mind") are a pair of ravens that fly all over the world, Midgard, and bring information to the god.

Codex Runicus, a vellum manuscript from around 1300 AD containing one of the oldest and best preserved texts of the Scanian Law, written entirely in runes.
Codex Runicus, Manuscript Illuminated, File Codexrunicus Jpeg, Latin Alphabet, Runes, Runic Alphabet, Letters, Ancient Language, Alphabet Art
The Codex Runicus is a 202-page vellum manuscript from c.1300, containing one of the oldest & best-preserved texts of the Scanian Law, written entirely in runes. Each rune corresponds to a letter of the Latin alphabet. It is considered by most scholars a nostalgic or revivalist use of runes, & not a natural step from the Nordic runic script culture of the Viking Age to the medieval Latin manuscript culture. The Codex Runicus is held at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.
Runes are the letters in a set of related alphabets known as runic alphabets which were used to write various Germanic languages before the adoption of the Latin alphabet and for specialized purposes thereafter. The Scandinavian variants are also known as futhark or fuþark (derived from their first six letters of the alphabet: F, U, Þ, A, R, and K); the Anglo-Saxon variant is futhorc or fuþorc (due to sound changes undergone in Old English by the same six letters).
