Me and my eldest visited a few vintage shops the other day. A treat after having been so sick. While strolling around in the shop I saw a woman in the distance picking up a multicolored beautiful hand knitted bedspread / shawl. I gritted my teeth and followed her around for a while. Maybe I would get lucky and she would have second thoughts and put it down again. Then she turned around and I saw that it was Anna from Helylle, my blogfriend! It’s a small world!! She showed me her findings and I told her about my teeth grinding. And we laughed! Anna is a very nice person who makes you go all warm inside. So glad she turned out to live in Sweden and in Malmö and two blocks away from me. Thats cyberspace for you! She told me that she was always on the lookout for kettle holders and that she just might make a kitchen curtain out of them.
Well Anna, I got there before you! He,he!
In another shop I made my best buy this week! A lovely orange, red and brown coat in exclusive British tweed. Circa 1950. I have been looking for a winter coat with a bit of color for a long time now. I like color! It makes a dull grey morning more fun! My spring/autumn coat is a greenish yellow by the way. My eldest loved the coat. The youngest said “Yuck, why do you have a dead beaver around your neck?" and since it wasn`t pink ( she is having a pink period now) the color was SO totally wrong too. My husband jumped backwards when I showed it to him but were otherwise silent. Don’t know if it was a dead beaver issue or a color issue. He is not that colorful my husband, when it comes to clothing that is.
