It's just soo lovely to have the time to do the things you want...

After my last post I walked into the kitchen and realized that I had forgotten to take a picture of another find at the juthbacka market...I have quite a few plants in the flat so this charming little table felt like something useful to have. And no, it does not bother me in any way that it is also very cute and retro.

As I've been on holiday this week, I've tried to get some projects done, such as revamping a pair of shoes which I haven't worn for a few years. Before;


And after;

From useless shoes to glamorous slippers to wear around the house, makes me feel a bit more luxurious than wearing woolly socks with my dressing gowns...

A little something else I made this week was this matching set of skirt and hat;


Also note my new handbag with the cute shoe-shaped clasp. From a shoe/bag shop here in town.

Finally, here's another outfit I wore to town a few days ago, sorry about the sunglasses inside but hey, that is what I looked like...


Another fun thing we did this week was taking a dance class, basics in Finnish tango. It was fun, but sadly, both Mr. Kitten and I feel like we've already forgotten most of it...

Finnish tango rules! I've been looking to get glamorous slippers to wear around the house. Then again, I don't know whether they are the most practical and safe ones when carrying my lil one around. Great revamping result tho!

fröken lila sa...

tango is great, both finnish and argentinian. i guess the trick is to dance as often as possible so that the steps and rythm get into your intuition...

Great slipper-makeover! I got to try it, I just have to descide what old pair to glamourise..

Blombordet är jättefint! Jag såg något liknande nyligen, men hade inte möjlighet att köpa det =(
Tjusiga outfits, som alltid! =) Låset på handväskan är hur gulligt som helst.

Oh, finsk tango... Har bara prövat tango litegrann (skulle vilja ta riktiga lektioner nån gång), men upplevde det som en väldigt härlig dans. Tyvärr brukar det väl vara så med helgkurser, använder man det inte rätt snart så tappar man det. Fördelen är att det går snabbt att komma in i det igen =)

Kram!

Mrs Munster; Thanks! Maybe your slipper don't have to have high heels to bee glamorous, if it's the heels you feel are the "unsafe" bit...

Fröken Lila; I know, and I sure wish we had the opportunity to dance more. Unfortunately, our living room isn't quite big enough...

Lillgull; Go for it! :)

Erika; Tack, jo jag har också velat prova på tango en längre tid, alltid när jag sett nåt duktigt par dansa det önskar jag att jag också kunde, det ser så fint ut! Nåväl, om ca. 6 veckor körs det samma kurs igen, får hoppas att vi har möjlighet att delta...kram!
