FINDS AND CREATIONS

What a busy day!
Meetings, post office, gym and a whole lot of crafting.
I got my hair flower making going on again.

Between post office and gym I went into my favorite
charity shop for a scout and there was a sale going on.
Sale in a charity shop, that's about as good at it could
get for a cheapskate (or should I say Frugalista?) like
me. And of course I didn't walk out empty handed...


Swimsuit new with tags, £3.
I can't wait to get in shape now! :))
I don't know if I was happy because of the low price or the fact that
it's a UK size 8 and a perfect fit. :P



Lurex top, 50 pence.
More lurex. I've got tons of lurex items that I got back in the day but
I kind of forgot
about them until recently.

It's nice to sparkle again.


Vintage dress, £1.
This darling will be my favorite house dress this summer.
It got two pockets in the front and I love the ribbon.
Sorry for the lousy picture but this is the best I can do, alone, with
my uber crappy camera.

As I promised yesterday, here's a small selection
of what I've been working on lately...
Click the images for larger view.


Revamped bag.
I just added a flower but it instantly became much more summery.


Green glittery Lily hair flowers.
Love these! They look for fabulous on it's amazing!
I need to doll up and show off. :))



Orchid hair flowers with skulls.
Very psychobilly/goth.
Not my style anymore but I hope someone
would like them enough
to buy them. ;)



The red cherry collection.
Comes in different styles, with or without cherries.


The white cherry collection.
Comes in different styles, with or without cherries.


The yellow cherry collection.
Comes in different styles, with or without cherries.

And I saved the best for last...


1940's style cherry necklace.
I've had a 1940s celluloid chain necklace with cherries on my wish
list for many years but I don't want to spend like
$100-$450 so I
made one myself!

I actually love the way it turned out.
I'm also working on a red one with bright red cherries.


I've been thinking...
As a Swede I grew up under the Jante Law and I
never gave myself any credit for anything.
It's 2011 and a lot of Scandinavians still submit to
that way of thinking.
Total downer.
It's not until now, after living in the UK for over 4
years and also as I'm getting older that I actually do
think that my creations turns out well and that I can
say so without the need to excuse myself.
The Jante Law is unhealthy, I think we all should be
proud over our skills and achievements and inspire
others to feel the same way about themselves.
