Kimono inspired overall

This is a kimono inspired overall/jumpsuit that I made last summer, and I wore it all the time, because it's so comfortable and light. 
The other thing i really like about it, is the pink-ish ribbon that gives the look a subtle pop of color.

Flower photos

Flowers are probably one of the most photographed objects, and since everyone are taking photos of flowers, it's probably not the most interesting photographs to look at.
But there is a reason why we love to take pictures of flowers! They just have a special power, so they look beautiful no matter how bad a photographer you are.

When I am in sweden, in a very small city called Hultanäs, with my aunt and uncle, I always take lots of pictures of the amazing flowers in the swedish woods.
Here are some of my favorites, unedited:

Animal fashionistas

No, I'm not talking about a very fashionable dog or cat. I'm talking about a rabbit and a toad.

They are a breath of fresh air, compared to all the fashion bloggers out there. They always wear the latest fashion, because they are extremely rich and aren't afraid of what everyone else are going to say -  (not because they aren't real...)

The toad has it's own tumblr site, which you can visit here

The rabbit is called Fifi Lapin and has her own blog, you can visit it here
I have been following Fifi Lapins blog for a looong time, so when I found this top, I just had to buy it!

Curtain makeover

I have had the same curtains since I was born, but I never really thought about changing them. 
When you see the before pictures, you might think - What?? did she really have these curtains until now? And the embarrassing answer is - yes. 
BUT - I finaly realized that they needed to go, and I have therefore sewed some new curtains in a lovely printed fabric. And that is also one of the pros of being able to sew, it's much cheaper than buying curtain fabric and getting a person at the curtain shop to sew it for you. 

So here are the before pictures of my curtain - and yes, it's teddybears...

And here are the after photos - way better, right?
