Lucky girl

Midsummers eve was spent with my dear boyfriend at the airshow in Kauhava. We saw a lot of airplanes, some bands and...the Rocket Man!

On sunday I had to work, but when I got home, my boyfriend had a surprise for me. He gave me a rose and a piece of paper. The paper had a written clue on it, which led me to the coffee maker, where I found the next clue and on it went around the house. The last clue said to call my boyfriends number, so I did. And what happens? A phone started ringing with my boyfriend singing happy birthday as a ringtone! My new phone, that was. My new Nokia N80. Or second hand, but hey, I'm very into second hand you know...

This is what it looks like. Image from here. The reason for this present was of course my birthday on thursday, but as we'll be working different shift then I got my present already. It's got a 3 megapixel camera in it which was the main reason for the choice of model, and this means that I will be able to take pictures of things I see at charity shops etc. I'm very happy. I've got such a great boyfriend! *puss*

And now, let me show you my first ever vintage dress find! A home made (as far as I can tell) 50's dress with a little matching jacket! It cost me 5 euros and has a few minor faults, and it was made for someone with a bit more breasts than I'm equipped with (I'm using a safety pin in the picture for better fit). But I'll give it a go and see if I can alter it to fit me. Wohoo, finally some vintage clothes are starting to appear in the shops around here! I do hope things continue like this. The shoes I'm wearing are some 3 euro ballerinas from the the sales at the supermarket I work at, and I got a pair in red as well. My vintage inspired wardrobe keeps on growing and I like it!

Ha, congratulations on your first vintage dress. It is really nice and a true bargain.

I miss vintage shops as well, as they don´t exist near the place I am living at the moment. I still can find them in Madrid though (lving in spain).......but I miss the english ones!

That dress is so adorable! It would be perfect for strolling through a park on a sunny summer afternoon.

Happy birthday wishes to you, sweet dear - may the coming year be full of joy and serenity for you! :)
