Summer update

 Summer is happening and like so many others, I too am busy living and not so busy blogging. This week has been especially busy as I'm working longer hours than I normally do, so even less time for blogging! Anyway, here's an outfit I managed to photograph the other week. The capri pants used to be just normal length trousers with the belt loops lower down, but not anymore! I just love it when I'm able to make something just how I want it. These capris have had a lot of use already...

For some reason I have been working every single monday evening the past 5-6 weeks, all but one, which means I haven't been able to go the the monday car boot-sales more than once. When I did go, I found some lovely things with hearts on them. I've seen the jar many times before, but always more expensive and in worse shape. The jug has already become a flower pot and suits it purpose very well.
 

I don't know when you'll hear from me again, as my holiday starts in two days and we have great plans to travel around Finland in our camper-van. We've been thinking along the lines of going down the coast stopping at Pori, Naantali, Raseborg, Ekenäs, Hangö, Helsinki, Borgå and Lappeenranta, from where we'll take a mini-cruise to Viipuri (Russia) and then make our way back home again the inland way. Feel free to leave tips on great places to shop vintage along the way, places to see and cafe's where you'd like to have a cup of tea and talk about sewing/vintage with me while I'm passing through.

Until I have the chance to write again, Have a fantastic summer!

Love, Kitten

Wow! Hot kitty! Love the outfit.
I will work on getting a bit more brave with the outfit posts, the few times I actually done it no one have commented and it made me wanna do it again even less if you know what I mean.

Revamping is a wonderful thing.
Well done.

Little Rascal; ;) Sorry to hear nobody commented, I just personally think clothes look better when worn and would have liked to see more of your lovely wardobe in use. But of course you have to do it how you want to!

Yes, revamping is great!

Ina; Tack detsamma! Yes, I got my picture taken by two newspapers that day...hope I looked ok ;)

ååh kannan! Jag har muggar i samma serie! Växte upp ed de muggarna men tjuvade dem av mamma för några år sedan. Hoppas jag skulle stöta på en likadan kanna i något skede...
