Cherries, finds and weekend plans

My new necklace, from the childrens dept. But I liked it, and the womens jewelery were so BIG, all of it, nothing for a petite Kitten like me. And the cherries didn't cost me much either.

The other day my intuition told me I should go to the Retro recyckling centre again, kinda hoping to find a nice stool to go with my make-up table. But no, no luck on that front, but what I did find got me pretty exited anyway. First, a set of retro sewing and fabrick colouring/printing books. I was thrilled, because I had been borrowing every book in sight about fabric printing and such that I could find in the library, without actually finding any really good books on the subject. And here I am, owning these inspiration sources - six books for 2 euros! Some day I'm gonna start printing...

In the handbag section I stubled upon this beauty:

It must be vintage because it smells just like the old cameras my grandmother gave me, the material even looks similar. And the attention to detail is amazing. I'm not 100% sure I will actually use it, because again, I'm rather petite and this bag is not...Plus the details are gold coloured, I'm a silver girl. But I had to have it, come on, it was 1€! It might start to live in my bookcase so I can admire it every day...

I also found a black pencil skirt, a bit boring but possibly very useful, and it looked vintage from the way it was made and the tag.

At the moment I'm pretty exited for the weekend, my bf is taking me skiing to Vuokatti, where we will be skiing inside a skiing tunnel and on the short outside skiingtrack - short, because there is only artificial snow there this time of the year. We will also be going out dancing on saturday night, dancing as in foxtrot and waltz, not clubbing, which should be fun even though were not that good...There is also a spa there, where we'll go swimming, winter bathing and enjoying the many saunas. I can't wait!
