Summer holiday

Oh boy is it hot outside today!
This summer has started off really good and I hope it will continue this way for a looong time.

Hello, sailor!

I'm at work, but is having my lunch break and decided to write a little entry about my latest Etsy-find, a vintage sailor hat. It's the cutest thing, with a navy blue brooch with a golden star. I plan to wear it with my navy blue 1940's dress with white polka dots.

Oh, I love vintage nautical things..

Unfortunately, it's not me on the picture (I wish!).

Midsummer's Eve

First of all, thank you so much for all the nice comments and e-mails I got with wishes of a speedy recovery! That's really sweet of you and I appreciate it so much!

It's Midsummer's Eve and I'm about to take a little trip out to the country side to visit my dear parents. My doggies will of course come along and they will have a field day: lots of buddies to play with and gigant lawns to run around!

Since the sun hasn't had the decency show up today, I guess we'll stay indoors or just have a little walk or two. We will have a traditional Midsummer's dinner and hopefully a cosy evening together with tea, cookies and maybe some murder mystery on TV.
I will try to pick the traditional 7 kinds of flowers to put under my pillow in hope to dream about who my future spouse is. Yes, I'm such a silly gal...
Have a nice weekend!

It hurts so bad!

Update from the sick bed: it turned out to be a horrible flu. My sweet dad just came over with a bunch of painkillers and he also took my dogs for a walk.
Thank you, Daddy-O!

Now, back to bed and sleep, sleep, sleep....

Out of order

I got a nasty case of food poisoning, so Miss Wink's closed for a little while.

Have a wonderful weekend! ( and watch out for bad chicken filets...)

Vamos a matar, compañeros!

As I wrote a couple of weeks ago, I watch ALOT of spaghetti westerns at the moment. Italy was a goldmine in the 60's and 70's and I can't go on without showing you the trailer for the one I watched a few days ago: "Vamos a matar, compañeros" (1970) by Sergie Corbucci.
This must be the ultimate spaghetti western, it got it all!

A crazy swede (!) played by Franco Nero ( the manliest man who's appeard on the silver screen, I say) who travels around and sells weapon and dynamite to the highest bidder, the mexcian revolution, blowing up a bridge, gun fights, duels, beautiful women, hangings, unlikely friendships, Jack Palance as a marijuana-crazed psychopat who's got a artificial hand and a pet falk, cunning plans, hijacking a train, escapes - the list could go on forever.
And an unforgetable score by Ennio Morricone. Just listen to the song in the trailer!

Hello sailor!

Feeling like a pirate? Dreaming about setting sail somewhere? Or just love everthing nautical?
The amazing boutique Pandoras Choice, which I have raved about before, has a new line of lingerie you just have to check out.

It's a cute set of a sailor-themed bra, panties and garter belt with embroidered white stars, 6 suspenders; all in marine blue satin. The bra is avaliable in sizes from 32B to 38DD and the panties/garter belt in sizes 10 to 18.

I think it's absolutely adorable!
