All my fabrics. Vintage and new.
Marimekko scandal is almost behind us. I’m still waiting for news about Isola but it seems like she’s allowed to continue to work at Marimekko. Grrrr. Very disappointing.
Anyhoo, pinning new things has been a welcome distraction from all this hardcore journalism stuff I’ve been doing and I have few good ones to share:
Vintage soda poster Jaffa by Erik Bruun. He did quite a few ads for Hartwall Jaffa back in the day and one of them was even made into fabric and other home decor products recently. They were/are a HUGE hit and even I wouldn’t say no to the shower curtain.
From my board “Beautiful People”. I don’t have any information about this photo. All I know it’s young Jack Nicholson hot and ready to bother and that’s all I need to know. Which is a nice build up to:
Ah, these shoes!!! Maybe I could balance the little evil in my heart with some sweetness on my feet. These shoes are a Disney-princess musical scene waiting to happen. And no, no one is too old to have a Disney-princess moment. Just ask Penny, Amy and Bernadette.
Talking about suitable for princess…Now this is what I call, call, call…Well let’s just call it PRETTY! I wouldn’t mind having patterned computer. I think it would bring certain je ne sais quoi to my life. Or at least make my mornings little bit less boring/mundane/soul sucking. And if I could have one of these:
Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze and one more squeeze! Seriously this is just too much for one woman to bear.
Last but not least, some words of wisdom to live by:

Here is a gallery of Kristina Isola’s prints through the years. The links to the original sources can be found at the end. I’ve excluded the prints Kristina did together with her mother, Maija Isola. In the list can also be found the controversial “Gingko”-print which originality is highly debatable (although I have formed my firm opinion based on the fact it isn’t her usual style). Anyhoo, if you know other prints or have Kristina Isola-fabric, please let me know in the comments and I can add it/them here. Enjoy!

I’m upset! Since my mac did the dance of death, I couldn’t re-colour my Pinteresting-banner! WAAAAH! I have to use an old one! WAAAAAAH! Not to mention, I haven’t been pinning that much since my last post…But there are some goodies there. Let’s start with…
A good print can save anyone’s day. This cherry pattern is a fantastic new take on a classic. Designer: Georgiana Paraschiv. From black cherries to black dots:
I can’t decide if this is a summer or an autumn look but I love it anyway. It’s fun and young but not so young that I couldn’t wear it. Another matter is could I pull it off with the amount of junk that I have in my trunk. And thighs. Let’s not forget the thighs.
Of course I can always cheer myself up with champagne lollies! Who am I kidding. If I had champagne, I’d drink it. Alone and not sharing.
He would share. He would share anything you have. And the neighbours have. And the neighbours kids have. He’d share anything he sees and thinks is delicious.
I like him already.
