I really like their simple and classic but cool designs. They also go some sharp ideas, like making the skirts avaliable in both pleated and a-line versions.

Tonight at 22:45 SVT1 is showing the documentary "Rockabilly 514".
Directed by Mike Wafer and Patricia Chica. "Rockabilly 514" is a social rockumentary about the rockabilly sub-culture within Montreal and its people who share a lifestyle influenced by the 1950s. "Rockabilly 514" tracks an array of colorful characters: musicians, dancers, pin-up models, event promoters, burlesque troop, DJ's, car customizers, tattoo artists, and vintage clothing vendors. All these people share their love for everything rockabilly throughout various events and gatherings, notably the Red Hot & Blue Rockabilly Festival (the only rockabilly weekender in Canada) that illuminates a whole community; as well as the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Festival, which is overflowing with thousands of like-minded enthusiasts from around the world.
Be there or be square!
(A little note: This is a shorter version than the original movie. SVT often choose to buy the cut down versions of documentaries for to me unknown reasons. This version is 50 minutes and the original is 86 minutes long!)

My mother on the right (with the pretty bow) and my aunt on the left.

I know, I know - I have been a terrible bad blogger the past week but I have had my hands and head so busy you can't imagine.
Last Friday my man turned 30 and we threw a wine & cheese party for family and friends. It turned out great and I think everybody had a wonderful time.
Ola recived so many nice gifts and flowers, our apartment looks like a tropical greenhouse!
The day after that we went down to his parents house for dinner and ended up spending the night there, playing board games and having a few drinks. We also looked at pictures of Ola as a baby on the slide projector, so much fun!

Basically because I got soo much things that really would love to have a new owner and also because I would like to offer my home made hairclips and other neat things I make.
At first I thought about making a simple little website but I'm really terrible bad at making pages. Then I thought "Hey, I can just make posts at my blog and mark them as flea market!". But that's a little bit boring, right? And not easy to navigate either.
What should I do? If I only knew someone who hade the skills and time to build a little website.
*sigh* I have to think about this and find a solution.
Update: ....and Rascal gave me a great solution. Thank you, honey!

The movie was quite alright, but as usual I like the book more. Before the movie I went to Swahili Bob's Tattoo Parlor and made a reservation for a new tattoo. I'm so excited! Roger, the brave soldier who's gonna do it, is a really good artist and I have complete faith in him. The motif is a little secret, but it's gonna be classic old-school and lots of color.
I also bought a DVD box with a couple of favourites from my child hood, the Hillman movies! They were one of my first experiences with horror/thrillers and scared me so much I couldn't sleep as a 8 yeard old, watching them with my father. They are all directed by the famous Arne Mattsson in the late 50's and early 60's, murder mysteries with some supernatural and scary segments. Karl-Arne Holmsten, the swedish Cary Grant, is the private detective who investigates all the murders along with his wife Kajsa. This is a real treat for everyone who loves vintage movies!
