hair things.

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.

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 :)

I just stumbled over these pictures again when I was looking for some old files on my computer :)

This was the first batch of jam I ever made, for christmas presents a few years ago. Actually, I think I made about 9 different batches that day.

My favourites were the peach, plum and banana jam. The second year I also made jam out of pears, ginger and pumpkin that was really lovely and it will definitely be made again in autumn.

kitschy pendant

pendant1

Yesterday when I was uploading pictures, I noticed that I never took pictures of my favourite pendant.

I made it quite some time ago out of an broken souvenir spoon. My paternal grandmother used to collect them. That broken one found it’s way to me after having lost it’s tiny plaque showing whatever attraction it used to belong to. It now has a silly running chicken instead of old-timey, touristy Austrian kitsch.

The tiny metal flowers once were earrings that must have been quite old. When they came to me they were broken, the flowers about to come off and the actual earring-parts were not complete or working anymore. My maternal grandmother gave them to me hoping I would save them from being thrown away.

So, this is very recycled and has a lot of family in it. I didn’t notice that until now …
