Tidbits : Flickr Favourites


Last week the European Street Team challenge was about castles, and I was very much impressed by the first entry of zsazsazsu1963. It was inspired by the Dutch millstone collars (molensteenkragen in Dutch) from the 17th century, and I love historic costumes. So, I looked for more "molensteenkragen".
For more flickr favourites see ArtMind's blog.

1. Molensteenkraag, 2. halssieraad; " WITTE MOLENSTEENKRAAG" neckpiece; "WHITE MILLSTONE COLLAR", 3. white ruffled neckpiece, 4. GOLDEN AGE ME

And here the beautiful challenge collar from zsazsazsu1963 .....

They look really nice. A little hot for my taste, but really elegant and beautiful.

Wat leuk dat mijn een van mijn molensteenkragen hierbij staat. Ik vind molensteenkragen fantastisch, zo'n stijlvolle omlijsting van een gezicht. Een molensteenkraag staat iedereen geweldig. Het zit natuurlijk vreselijk, maar wie mooi wil zijn moet pijn lijden en wie weet went het op den duur?

I thought the exact same when I saw that entry, Ella!
I love how she enterpreted the theme and I love the collars a lot! I think it would look awesome in porcelain too! :)
