The Palais Garnier is a 1,979-seat opera house, built from 1861 to 1875 for the Paris Opera. The theatre was known as the Opéra de Paris or simply the Opéra, but has come to be known as the Palais Garnier in recognition of its opulence and its architect, Charles Garnier.
It was the primary home of the Paris Opera and its associated Paris Opera Ballet until 1989, when the Opéra Bastille opened at the Place de la Bastille, leaving the Palais Garnier for ballet.
The Palais Garnier also houses the Bibliothèque-Musée de l’Opéra de Paris (Paris Opera Library-Museum).

I lost three followers in the span of ten minutes. And I didn’t post anything. I am so confused. Back down to needing 25 more followers to hit 500. This giveaway is taking longer to happen than I had anticipated! Darlings, I want to give you pretty things!

For those of you who love Phantom of the Opera (and especially the ALW musical) as much as I, I would like to present the Hannibal tiara done Valt-style!!!

Let me tell you, this was extremely time intensive. And now that I’ve done one, I have a better idea of what to do in the future. So, if anyone wants one of their own…. you know where to come!

You can talk to me here in my Ask Box, at GraveGlamour on Etsy, or you can email me at valtinen@gmail.com!

"Viewed logically," he said, "all that’s happened is that I’m responding to your own response. You react to me in a particular way, an emotive way. And I react to your reaction. I’m simply fulfilling your need, if you like."

"No, I don’t like. I’m tired of your fulfilling my needs. I want to fulfill yours. What do you need, Silver?"

He raised his eyes and looked at me. His eyes seemed to go a long way back, like sideways seas, horizontal depths…

"You see," he said, "nobody damn well says ‘What do you need?’ to a bloody robot."

This is the most rad gift I got for my birthday today. It’s a music box that plays Music of the Night! It’s very detailed and textured.

graveglamour have you seen this?!?!

I want it so bad!

Yes! Thank you for tagging me! I actually have seen. I own it. I own quite a number of the San Francisco Music Box Co pieces. I should take a picture of them next time I’m in CT!
