I'm back home after spending two weeks at the summerhouse, but I have two weeks left of my vacation. Today spent in the 18th century at Skansen. We mingled around as part of the tourist attraction, were models in a lecture on clothes, danced and ate well, all while people were taking pictures of us. I enkoyed myself nevertheless. No new clothes, but it was the first time for the straw hat I decorated last summer. I really like the look of it, but it was quite heave and pulled my wig more and more down on one side. It looked fine, but I could feel it sliding- a very unsecure feeling. I'm not used to wearing wigs and need to learn to fix it better in place. J wore Gustaf III's national suit and looked great as usual.
Pretty Caroline who took all the photos of me and also kindly allowed me to post them here. She doesn't blog, but she is a very talented and creative seamstress and I urge you to go and look at her clothes at Deviantart.
The lover returns.
And start to sing some very silly songs...
We are going to visit Skansen again next Saturday and by then I plan to have something new! Amazing, isn't it, as I haven't finished anything 18th century since, well, since forever. It's something I started a long time ago and there really isn't much left. I also plan to make a new hat...
A better view of the hat decorations.
A rather tame squirrel begged food from us- seconds after this picture he jumped up on the bench beside J.
