IT'S RAINING GIFTS! HALLELUJAH! [23 Mar 2009|08:05pm]
[ mood | loved ]

I've must have been a really good girl the last 24 hours
because I've been showered with gifts like never before!
So this must be what Christmas feels like? *smirk*

From my man and mother in law:
A pinup book, coconut macaroons and chili nuts.

From my friend Heather:
Tons of Big Red gum, a cute little box of fruit gum,
a lip balm that taste like peaches and a Bettie Page
memo board.

From my friend Zizzi:
Baby blue napkins with polka dots and baby deers,
a very neat washing up brush and a magazine from
the 1950's (not pictured).

From my man:
A canary yellow Glide Deluxe Woodside cruiser from Kustom Kruiser!

It's a used one but who cares?
He found it on eBay this morning and called the guy up
and asked him if he would take it off and sell it to us for
£70 if we picked up today, and so we did!
My old one that I got from my dad on my birthday 2004
got stolen, a guy my man used to know promised me to
pimp it up but that was 15 months ago and the wanker
doesn't answer his phone or reply to emails.

YOU KNOW IT'S LOVE WHEN... [21 Mar 2009|08:05pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

Your better half buy you organic cheese in shape of a bunny.

It's was a really beautiful day today!
We went to a DIY store where we got some flowers for
the big pots on the patio and we also got some paint for
the part of the house that got plastered earlier this year.
I also started to give the back garden a face lift.

I'm finally on Etsy!
I added some stuff today but there's much more to come.

MY LATEST EBAY FINDS [19 Mar 2009|12:34pm]
[ mood | awake ]

This beauty arrived this morning!
I'm a sucker for wicker handbags and this was like
the holy grail of wicker handbags and the last one
for a while.
I won it on eBay for £21, not really a bargain price
but I like it because it's unusual.
It would probably cost around £40 on a rockabilly
weekender or in a vintage clothing store in London.

I won this pattern for 4 1950's sun tops for £1.04.
My plan is to make one of them in class next week.

A NICE BREAK [15 Mar 2009|07:13pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

I got loads of stuff done today.
I started my day by clearing the weeds in the flowerbed
under the kitchen window, then I wiped off the mud on the
paper and glass bin and also the garden set, swept old leafs
from the entrance, gave the front door and window a good
clean, then I scrubbed the patio in the back garden and also
wiped off the patio furniture.

The sun was shining so we took a trip to one of our favorite
places, Benington Village.
We fed the ducks and took a stroll and dreamed about living
there. It wa so relaxing.

When we came back home Mark made me Latkes (potato pancakes)
and I did loads of wahing up and then I vacuumed and mopped the
entire house.

Here's some pictures from our trip to Benington.

The duck pond.

A cute sign.

Daffodils in full bloom.

The old water tower.

A cute house.

Old letterbox.

A pink cottage.

The school mistress house.

Primary school.

The gate keepers house at Lordship Gardens.

St Peter's church (built in 11700).

[ mood | grateful ]

My man surprised me with this huge bunch of roses
last night for no other reason than that he loves me.
Now how lucky am I?

I MAKE MY OWN CEREALS [28 Feb 2009|11:31am]
[ mood | hungry ]

I had cravings for cereals the other day, I mostly eat oatmeal
in the morning, I had a look at the ingredients on a packet of
crunchy cereals at the supermarket and all I see is sugar, sugar
and more sugar. The price wasn't very appealing either.

So I decided to make my own cereals like I did when I was
living on the minimum in Stockholm.

You'll need:
3 tablespoons of honey
2,5 deciliter (1 cup) of oats
A hand full of whatever you like, for example: pecan nuts,
coconut flakes, dried fruit, almonds...
You can also add some seeds like sesame seeds or line seeds
if you desire, it's very good for the digestion.

Take the honey, put it in a heated pan, low heat, then add the
oats and the stuff of your choice.
Stir it all together on low heat for a minute or two, make sure
the oats mixes well with the honey.
Let it cool off, serve with yoghurt.

(This mix will last you for a couple of breakfasts so store in a
plastic container in the fridge.)

I used pecan nuts and line seeds.

BAD WEEK [26 Feb 2009|01:23pm]
[ mood | crappy ]

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I have had a bad week.
Went to the emergency last Saturday after fainting, again,
and since then I've been asleep most of the time.
My new medication had really knocked me out.
I'm sorry for the ranting about my illness, I want nothing
more that to get back to my normal bubbly self.

I need to take a break away from auctions, I'm too ill to be
doing it right now and I hate to be a bad seller with all the

My man gave me this bag yesterday.
I'm nuts about wicker bags and the red straps makes it a
bit unusual and best of all, it goes with almost everything
in my closet. (I got a lot of red items.)

Since I'm ill and rather grumpy my darling decided to cheer me up by
taking me to Hampstead Garden Suburbs to look at Art Deco houses.
These two are my favorites:

Brim Hill

Lytton Close

BAD [13 Feb 2009|06:15pm]
[ mood | blah ]

I'm getting worse.
Mark suspect that I have Meningitis.
The medication doesn't work at all and it feels like
my brain are swelling over inside my skull, which
is causing me the worst headache I had so far.
Mark wants to take me to the hospital but they
will say that I have to talk to my GP and that they
can't help me after waiting for five hours or so.
No thanks.

My man is the best, he's really looks after me.
He's a bit frustrated that I feel so ill and that he
can't do anything to make me feel better.
No matter what, he makes me feel like a princess,
yesterday we went to our favorite restaurant and
he gave me these two books.

MY LATEST CREATIONS [08 Feb 2009|04:02pm]
[ mood | calm ]

Today it's 12 years since my mom died, I'm not sad or anything,
I'm just wondering where the hell the time went!

I stayed home last night, we were supposed to go to a gig that I've
been looking forward to for quite some time but the Labyrinthitis
fucked my head up so my man had to go by himself.
To my surprise my dad called and just as we hang up my best friend
called, all and all I was yapping o the phone for 4 hours!

During the week we had most of the walls in the house plastered.
Our walls is now smooth as a baby's bottom.

Today I have a cold, again.
My throat is sore and I'm just about to go downstairs and make some
Chai Tea.

Made these earrings today, the charms are vintage and dead cute.

LET'S GET PLASTERED! [05 Feb 2009|12:44pm]
[ mood | awake ]

The house is a complete mess today but for a very good
reason - we're having most of the walls plastered to get
rid of the horrible Artex that makes the house look dated
and a bit psychedelic if you ask me.
Our walls looks like this! Would you be able to cope?

MY HAIR'S BEST FRIEND! [04 Feb 2009|12:42pm]
[ mood | cold ]

This is my hair's new best friend!
I found this product, INECTO pure coconut oil hair serum
the other day and decided to try it.
My hair was really out of control and winter dry but after
using some of it my hair turned soft and shiny instantly.
It smells very nice, not very coconut at all, like those tanned
German beach boys with a banana hammock.

SPRING ADDITIONALS [29 Jan 2009|02:40pm]
[ mood | cold ]

Had a day out with Angela yesterday.
We went to Primark to check out the new stuff for spring before we went
for a cup of hot cocoa and a chat.
This is some of my finds.

Cardigan, £6.

Shoes, £13.

Clutch bag, £5.

I started a sewing class yesterday evening.
There was about 10 women there plus me.
My teacher was very nice and Norwegian, what I didn't understand in English
she told me in Norwegian. Thank G*d for Scandinavians!

Today I'mvery ill from the Labyrinthitis and I also have a nasty cold on top of
that but I keep myself busy by clearing out my closets, taking photos of the stuff
I don't want and soon they will be up for sale on Tradera.
I have cleared tons of bags and vintage stuff.
Feel free to have a look HERE. (In Swedish only.)
