What a week!

We've been experiencing warm weather lately here in Finland. If it gets over 30C it's a record around here... and that's happened like three or four times within a week. I couldn't be happier! The heat wave also explains why it's been so quiet in Finnish blogworld lately... all bloggers are out absorbing the light and heat now that we finally have some. ;)

I've been busy enjoying the weather and touring flea markets and thrift stores (and washing windows), and I've actually found some pretty nice stuff touring around the neighbourhood: old cardboard suitcases, nice vanity table (needs a little TLC), nightstand/side table (can't decide which), black suede shoes from 40's, some cute clothes, big bunch of artificial frowers, etc. And I finally got to wear my new 60's/70's tent dress. Look, it's got a big pocket with Eiffel Tower! When I saw it I knew I just had to have it...

I'd really need a pair of Eiffel earrings to go with the dress to make it super kitchy... Something like these (from Distracto Girl).

I also won a giveaway held by the lovely Yesterday Girl and got these cute souvenir goodies from Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation in mail two days ago. She was sweet to include that lovely felt brooch too (made it herself!)... :) If you haven't visited her blog yet, you relly should. ;)

What a wonderful dress! I love it - then again, I am completely taken in by anything with the Eiffel tower on it :) Perfect ensemble for a day at the flea market.
