Happy Midsummer!

Happy Midsummer everyone! Now, I know this (banned) commercial from IKEA Germany is silly, but I find this very funny, and I almost wish Midsummer parties were like that. Almost.

A nice spot in the countryside, friends, music, dance, food, lots of strawberries and vodka, there is not doubt that it's the best holiday of the year!

A Swedish landscape on a vintage 70's fabric

It's no secret anymore that I love bright, colorful vintage fabrics from the 60's and the 70's! I found this one (once again) at a second hand store for about 2$, I just like looking at it, it's such a "happy" textile!

It's a quite typical 70's design, but I love that it features a Scanian landscape (Southern Sweden). Beautiful countryside, perfect for a long bike ride and a picnic! And I don't know exactly why, but I'm particularly fond of willow trees...

Summer, bright colors and vintage dress

Here's a lovely vintage dress from the 60's I found at the second hand store. I love that pattern! And the bright colors! And the bakelite buttons! And the two large pockets! The label reads "Rudholms Made in Sweden", and I can't wait to wear it after months of black, rust and grey outfits! Not sure I'm going to wear it with my Marimekko bag, too much color for me, but I love how it looks like on the mannequin!
