My, oh my how time flies when you are having fun. I had a plan to blog while I was up here in Lapland. I HAVE lots to blog about and I even had access to computer the entire time I’ve been here but A. I didn’t want to and B. I’ve noticed I can’t focus as well on someone else’s computer and C. No one I know up here has a Photoshop and D. Only one has a mouse. How can you edit pics without a mouse? You can’t, I tell you.
I thought I’d start today with this vintage travel guide. At first I thought this was some kind of Halloween-graphic because it was amongst other Halloween-pins and well, the colours and the pointy end of the scarf made think that the woman in the picture is a witch. Could have confused anyone. via Pinterest. (If you can read the name of the illustrator, please let me know).
Apparently I’m in the mood for yellow…I immediately fell in love with this shirt. When I had red hair, I had to steer away from polkadots because, hello, clown-association but now I’m ready to take back the missed fashion opportunities. Anyhoo, couldn’t get the original link to work, so…via Pinterest.
My 11-year old cousin told me to post this one. And I agree, this is awesome. Back in the day I used to wear cherry lip gloss and there was this boy and he said…Well, never mind what he said but let’s just say, I remember those days fondly. (Back then I had abs too). Anyway, I remember seeing a documentary about plastic few years ago and the founder of Alessi said in it that in future, plastic will be “the” antique. Highly valuable, highly collectable. This purse is valuable already today. Costs $1,595 with ($798 deposit). Via modaoperandi.com
Another pick by my cousin. From 1500 dollar purse to a 15 dollar Ikea-hack. She has range! I asked what she likes about this and she said that somehow everything about this is wonderful. I agree. Again. Anyway, I assume you all recognize this as Ikea Bekväm-stool if you want to hack one yourself. You can also buy this at fliffa.com if you are not in the mood for DIY-ing.
My dog fever is not getting any better. Just yesterday, Finnish pet rescue associations launched a shared website, kodittomat.info, where you can find ALL pets in Finland needing a home. The site actually went down almost immediately because of too many visitors but that’s only a good thing right? My favourite is Nemo. (There’s a Finding Nemo-joke here somewhere). Anyhoo, until I can commit to a dog, I have to console myself with cute doggie pics on Pinterest. Frenchie image via Pinterest.
