WELL DRESSED LITTLE MAN

I don't think there's many bloggers left, I think almost everyone
has emigrated to instagram nowadays.
I'm one of the few who doesn't own a modern phone (because
I have phone phobia and no friends over here in the UK) so I'm
staying here for now.

I thought I show you some neat finds I managed to snag for my
darling Dixon. All garments are deadstock from the 1950's.
He's gonna be a well dressed little man in a few years. :)


£4.70 for the lot. ($8)

£4.20. ($7.20)


£2.70 for the lot. ($4.60)


£9.40 for the lot. ($16)

£17 for the lot. ($29)

£20 for the lot. ($34)

£8 for the lot. ($13.70)

Oh! I almost forgot to show off the vintage pram we got!
It's a 1960's Marmet pram, near mint condition and it cost
only £30 on eBay! ($51)

GLAD MIDSOMMAR!

Happy Midsummer's Day!
I hope you're out in the sunshine dancing around the maypole
rather than sitting indoors by the compuuter as I do right now
because I'm feeding the little one.
I must say that since I moved to the UK I really miss Swedish
things I didn't really care that much about before, like sweets,
food and drinks and celebrating midsummer, it's unfortunately
not a "thing" around here. :(
I always get terribly homesick during the summer months.

Last night I made this midsummer necklace to cheer myself
up a little.

NEW ITEMS IN MY ETSY SHOP

Hi there!
I'm finally crafting again after a break due to bad swelling in my hands.
I'm fine now tho. :)

Here's some things I've made and listed in my Etsy shop.



I've also been revamping this thing, which I think might have been a
hair clip once. It made a nice exotic brooch and earring set for bright
summer days.

THIS IS WHY I'VE BEEN AWAY

I don't know if anyone noticed I've been away for a while,
this is why.
This is our son, Dixon. He was born April 12 and he's the
love of our lives.
