Mata Hari - 1906 postcard
This is the REAL Mata Hari, Margaretha Geertruida “Grietje” Zelle MacLeod, who was executed by firing squad for being a WWI spy… though she probably wasn’t a spy. 
This is not Theda Bara playing Mata Hari.  This IS Mata Hari.  May she be an inspiration to us all: Leave abusive situations.  Dance.  Live a life of Intrigue.  No Regrets.

Unikko (in camel) by Maiji Isola (1964+)
Growing up, one of the homes we lived in had a Unikko print by Isola as the kitchen wallpaper - or something similar - but in bright red, orange, yellow & black.  The camel color I downloaded was me reclaiming the design - but in beige.

"primitive tress" Unknown Title/Artist (probably Finnish designer - let me know if you know!)
Moving into a bunch of designs I downloaded in 2005 soon after I moved into my current apartment.  I was, and am, obsessed with Finnish/Scandinavian designs and architecture.
