™. After which they have, apart from walked around in numerous cities here and there, been chewed upon by both cats and dogs and had their share of sudden rains and unexpected escapades trough muddy fields. And so on.
I bought them to the cobbler's once to try and have them saved and he went "Ah, red shoes", in a familiar voice. "They always seem to be the most precious ones". These were perhaps not my most precious ones per se, but definitely the most trustworthy. And now they are falling apart to the point I believe it's time to give them up. Luckily I happened to come over another pair of reds that could possibly turn into the new most comfiest and most wearable shoes in the world. Not as nice a model as the previous ones and in a less dirt-friendly material (canvas compared to pleather) but a pair I propably should buy an extra set of for future all-the-time use and where-ever walks...
The new ones are plain DinSko shoes (for 24,90).

I am the kind of some find silly, others adorable, and the rest won't notice person who when going to a meeting that happens to take place in a marina I just have to wear a sailor inspired dress, because that's of course what you do going even close to a marina. If not for else, it makes life a little more fun at least.
And once at it, since wearing said dress all day long before marina moment too, I of course went along and dressed my child up accordingly too. Team outfits! Because what is cuter than a little kid in a sailor outfit? (Well that would be a kitten in a sailor outfit then. Or just a plain kitten; I'm not much for animals dressed up in clothes.)
The dress and belt are vintage.

And moments before the little one was sleeping peacefully like in the pictures he had done this for example:
Later he tripped over on his little kick-mobile and burst both lip and nose. (Sniff!)
Also the porch behind my legs and cats looks like this for the moment...
And some of my newly planted plants are dead by now.

It has a slip in the same color to wear underneath butI think it's more fun to wear it with something contrasting, or matching instead. Sot this here is kind of a two-in-one not only when it comes to layering dresses but also to remembering; the turquoise green vintage dress underneath had been hiding in the closet for a long time too - I got it and wore it during my late pregnancy. (But it's not a maternity dress really. It's a very comfy one so it will get to come out some more and play too) . First I thought of leaving it unbuttoned in the front not to show but when buttoned it adds this strange extra detail to the neck lining which I actually like.
I was wearing these heels when Elvis walked me down the aisle in Vegas almost two years ago. I don't think I've worn them after my trip so they too do deserve to come out and enjoy the sun a little bit now!

At this point of the year I always get the urge to plant around - also before I had a garden - put seeds here and there and fix up the lucky plants that have made it trough the winter with me. For a while forget that my nails are more red than my thumbs are green. Not that I am totally impossible with plants (I guess I have learned something along the way) but mainly I don't really know what I'm doing, not that much more than what a google search can give me after briefly remembering something inspiring read in a magazine, sort of.
I've mad a few day trips to the countryside managing the greens there.

*) But yes yes, no earth quakes, no deadly bugs, no hurricanes. A lot of dark and cold is the price for that.

Some photos I've instagrammed from our kitchen after the renovation.
Although "after" is perhaps a little too early to say as it sort if is still going on; it's only on hiatus now as Eddi is away. Most of the room was custom built in place. The kitchen itself needs some final organizing, will get a little more paint on some minor (and major details) as well as get it's textiles in place. But here's how it looks now.
Here are some bonus baby-lambs for you. Good night, bää bää*!
*) That's what lambs say over here.

All in all, being a ridiculous bit ridiculous every now and then, for example in the form of going all crazy animal-print-cat-lady en masse, is for the better I think.

I make smoothies almost daily. Today's consisted of: half an avocado, half a pear, mango mash, frozen berries, apple juice, soy milk.
I have most of my smoothies under the tag #smoothieoftheday on instagram, in case you are in the need of some liquid breakfast inspiration.

There's a similar photo of my first first of May in some of my parent's album, with me sitting in my pram with a balloon, taken thrity years ago. Or 31. Or 32, not really sure anymore :)
It's very windy so let's see if they last the park tomorrow.
Glada Vappen; have a fun May Day!
(And on another note, black beret week continues. The dress is vintage and the rest is old.)
