reblogging again because THIS POEM. THIS. POEM. LOVE.
Hus-1 by Torsten Ottesjö is a beautifully proportioned, ‘human-scale’ dwelling that sits perfectly in its surroundings, its organic shape complements the environment rather than hiding from it, and envelopes you in its cosy womb. This tiny house is a real feel-good building. (via Arch Daily)

“Lover’s eye”, eye miniature on ivory, c. 1830’s. Hand-painted miniature of a left hazel eye on ivory in heart-shaped pendant.
Eye miniatures or Lovers’ eyes were Georgian miniatures, normally watercolour on ivory, depicting the eye or eyes of a spouse, loved one or child. These were usually commissioned for sentimental reasons and were often worn as bracelets, brooches, pendants or rings with richly decorated frames, serving the same emotional need as lockets hiding portraits or locks of hair. This fad started in the late 1700’s.
Eye miniatures are believed to have originated when the Prince of Wales (later George IV) felt the need to send the widow Maria Fitzherbert a token of his love. This gesture and the romance that went with it, was frowned upon by the court, so that a miniaturist was employed to paint only the eye and thereby preserve anonymity and decorum.

I love this :)
Seriously, this needs to happen more often. Just because I’m a Christian does NOT mean that I hate homosexual people! And I am genuinely sorry for every person who said they were a Christian and mistreated you.
i literally want to do this so bad. Like desperately. I heard about it from the Marin Foundation (or something similar - meh) and now I really really really really want to do this!
