Tattoo time again!

So, yesterday I had another session at Swahili Bob's Tattoo Parlour and my lovely PTA (Personal Tattoo Artist) Roger.
Beware, my arm is swollen like a Saucisson Sen!

Oh Oscar!




A few days ago my dear mother managed to lay her hands on a vintage Oscar de la Renta set with a dark blue knitted skirt and a cardigan. And in size XL, which is quite unusual to find. I'm green with envy I could die.

Just look at those delicate shoulders! That's what I call quality and good craftmanship.

Thank you so much darling, I love it!

Scottie's loves cupcakes


My little scottie Viggo is in serious need of a grooming, so in about an hour we'll be off to pay a visit to his breeder.
To show my great appreciation I'm making strawberry cupcakes to bring there.
Viggo is helping out by cleaning the bowl and is showing great interest in the items on the baking tin...

We can't get enough of gingham, right?

The ever so lovely Nostalchic just wrote about the skirt of my dreams!
How cute isn't it?!
It's avaliable in blue/white & black/white gingham up to size XL (with elastic waist, thank you very much) from Rut mfl.
The price isn't too bad either, a reasonable 199 SEK (aprox. $22, 50).
I just have to track one down...

It's Commercial Time Again, Kids!

Desert 20's style


Viggo's enjoying the last whipped creme from the desert in a 1920's pudding bowl at my parents house.
Who said dogs don't appreciate vintage things?

A scottie's week

Being a scottie mom isn't easy. Besides from the domestic duties and keeping up the social torrent, the scottie itself needs to be walked, played with and not least supervised if you want your house decorations to stay where they belong.

But who I am to complain, when I get rewarded every day by having the best furry little friend one can have?

Chatting the cold away


I spent last night chatting with Little Rascal on the phone, making plans for my visit in England in june. We're gonna have the best time ever and I can't wait to get there!

My sweet mother, who's almost as crazy in everything vintage as I am, will pay my plane ticket as a gift (and a slight compensation for all the hours I have spent helping her finding vintage clothes online..).
Thank you!

Today I have a terrible cold and fever, so I have spent the day laying down on the sofa with a grisly crime novel and a cup of extra spicy chai tea with honey and soy milk.

Crafty!

Today I made these cellphone charms. I think they turned out quite pretty?
Note that the straps one the charms in the middle is not orange but red.

Scotties and vixens, oh my!

Viggo is rushing to read Scottie News..


I almost fainted when I saw this!
"Swedish Vixen Loves Naughty Scottie Dogs".

Miss Wink is featured on Scottish Terrier and Dog News, a blog I read everyday. I had no idea they knew about my little corner of the world.. Thank you so much!

R.I.P Lux Interior

Lux and Ivy


I'm so sad to hear the news about the death of Lux Interior, singer of The Cramps with a voice which only can be described as "the psychosexual werewolf/ Elvis hybrid from hell".

I was fortuned to see The Cramps live in Stockholm two years ago and that was the best show I have ever seen. Lux wore stiletto heels and skintight leather pants (that he eventually cut open with a broken wine bottle) and was better than ever. Ivy sneered at the horny boys in the audience and concreted her position as the coolest woman in rock history.
There will never be another band like the Cramps. They are so unique and they have had a enormous impact on everything from fashion, cult cinema and the rock scene.
When I first discovered them it opened up a whole new world to me; a world full of rockabilly, rock n'roll, cult movies and kitsch. A world I still love and cherish.
Now I feel like I have lost a close friend and it hurts to think about.

My thoughts goes out to Ivy and I hope she will manage to get through this.

Sleep well, Lux, and thank you so much for everything.

A little bit of everything

So, what's new?
Well, I decided to spice up my life and went to my favourite studio to get a Monroe piercing. It turned out wonderfully cute and I love it!
Now I want to find a proper labret with a little diamond to wear.

I had a weird dream where I got "Miss Wink" tattooed on my toes, like when people have words on their knuckles. What could that dream mean? Any ideas?

And just to make the temperature rise a bit..here's a little treat: Leyla Rose!
