hair things.

hairband

I just found pictures of some hairbands I made … a really long time ago. Maybe I need to find them, they would look great with the ultramarine-to-pink gradient currently in my hair.

And cutting some fabric. I finally reached the first goal in my new quilt project: Everything fits inside just one shoe box now.

Camera maintenance!

And bye mirror. Here you can see the date that someone engraved in the mirror. It says 12/9: 34

Black flowers

For this dress, I copied a bought one I have almost worn to death by now.

It was pretty straightforward: The dress has a shirred waist and the straps have a drawstring and close with a little bow.

I made it two years ago, and when I finally managed to take pictures last autumn I ended up forgetting about them. Again.

And a close up of the fabric. And my hair, that had a really strange colour back then.

I love the in-between seasons :)

new toy

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I got a new toy for my birthday :)

It is a really old camera, a Rolleicord Art Deco. I’ve been longingly staring at them in the shop windows of Vienna’s countless camera stores for over a year. And now it showed up as a surprise guest for my birthday party.

I’m still learning how to use it, but I think we will be friends sooner rather than later. I shot 2 rolls of film now and they look quite okay as far as I can tell. But they’re not scanned yet as they still hang to dry … Can’t wait to see them :)

And a quick look at the house next door. The focusing screen is so dirty it’s even visible in the picture. It was a bit hard to focus with all this dust in between, which is why we took the camera apart in the first place.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We opened the camera up to replace a few parts (to make it nicer to use, it worked from the beginning) and found what I think must be the production date. It says 12 September 1934. I love taking apart old stuff to find a date or name engraved somewhere …

And I think it has not been used in quite some time, we found a metal rod from what was likely the last roll of film shot in it. And that film still came on a metal rod instead of plastic.

Maybe there will be another post on taking it apart and fixing stuff ;)

nothing much
