Found treasures

Today I did a bit of catching up on my favourite blogs and I can't remember how I ended up on Miss Moss's blog but I can honestly say I have spent ALL day browsing through her posts .... I got completely lost in the beauty of her blog,  she has curated a spellbinding collection of incredible photography both nature and fashion, new and old (including LIFE magazine archives).... I just love everything she posts about. The posts that really stayed with me were her beautiful Colour comparison posts  - which I just had to share with you! Please go to her site for guaranteed eye candy natalie wood / picasso - la toilette

She has also posted fab Old Fashion / New Fashion features on Jane Birkin (her style then and how to interpret it now) here and on others including Ava Gardner and Audrey Hepburn here

I also came across this magical photograph of Wormsloe Plantation Chatham County in Georgia from blog A Continuous Lean taken by photographer Evan Leavitt

And finally.....I couldn't resist this story of Super Mamika, French photographer Sacha Goldberger wanted to cheer his 91-year-old Hungarian grandmother Frederika up as he felt she was a bit lonely and depressed... he suggested that they shoot a series of outrageous photographs in unusual costumes, poses, and locations. Grandma reluctantly agreed, but once they got rolling, she couldn't stop smiling.

Frederika was born in Budapest 20 years before World War II. During the war, at the peril of her own life, she courageously saved the lives of ten people. When asked how, Goldberger told us "she hid the Jewish people she knew, moving them around to different places every day." As a survivor of Nazism and Communism, she then immigrated away from Hungary to France, forced by the Communist regime to leave her homeland illegally or face death.

You can visit her MySpace page and see loads more pics of Mamika here.
