During the Renaissance, cabinet of curiosities came into fashion as a collection of objects that would often defy classification. As a precursor to the modern museum, the cabinet referred to room(s), not actual furniture, of things that piqued the owners interest and would be collected and displayed in an aesthetically pleasing manner. Collectioun of Cunnynge Curioustes is my 21st century interpretation of that idea.

Stella ended this week and I’m sorry to see it go, presh. I got overly invested in the lives and characters of the quirky village of Pontyberry, Wales. There was, of course, a cliffhanger (several of them) but the season has been picked up for next year so I’ll get to see them all again.
- Secret Knowledge: The Art of the Vikings
Oxford Art Hisotrian, Dr. Janina Ramirez, explores the objects currently on loan for the Vikings! exhibition. Interesting, but entirely too short. The presentation lasted 22 minutes.
Weekly watching: Vikings, The Vampire Diaries, Mr. Selfridge, Banshee, Portlandia, Top Gear UK, House of Lies, Elementary, Spartacus, The Americans, Archer, and Project Runway
