For those of you who are celebrating the Lunar New Year…a vintage Avon perfume bottle containing the fragrance Roses, Roses.
This was one of the first perfumes I ever owned. I’d probably still enjoy it today!
I didn’t know anything about the band Rasputina until I walked into one of their live shows, thanks to my husband, who had bought tickets, guessing (correctly) that I would enjoy it. Rasputina’s musical style is often described as “gothic cello-rock,” and it’s certainly a love-or-hate thing. For me, it was love at first note.
I just wanted to share this image, the cover of Rasputina’s 2002 album Cabin Fever. Rasputina’s frontwoman, Melora Creager, creates much of the artwork for the band’s visual materials. She seems to have collaborated with photographer and multi-media artist Ryan Obermeyer for this cover.
Do you see what I see?
I’m not able to write as much as usual this week, due to other commitments and to our sweet older cat’s current health issues. Instead, I can offer a photo of this Avon perfume bottle from my childhood home. It’s called “Sitting Pretty” and it originally held Charisma Eau de Cologne.
