The eskimo jacket.


This is part three of my big wardrobe clean-up.
The jacket has shrunk bit by bit and I gained some
kilos over the years :-)


I felt pretty rough today, spend the greater part of
the Sunday in bed with a sore throat and aching muscles,
but enjoyed reading my very first moomin book!
For those who are not hibernating, keep warm!

  2. Stay warm and rest...the best part of getting sick is that you are allowed to treat yourself!

  6. to alessandra: i've been thinking about it too, but the problem is that they're all very close-fitting and most of he time too short!
    But I'm planning a give-away soon, something new, I just need more time :-)

  8. hope you feel better soon- make yourself a little cocktail of ginger, garlic, chilli, honey + lemon juice- it helps! the eskimo jacket is gorgeous, did you make it?

  9. That jacket is beautiful - the craftsmanship, ah, it is difficult to get items like that in a shop. Is it handmade? PS I loved the Stellet Licht link you gave. It was a perfect 4 minutes and 49 seconds to start my week off - I am going to keep that link and watch it at the start of every week. I loved the animal sounds, it reminded me of the little village my grandfather lived in - the people all kept cows, chickens, sheep, and it sounded like that early in the mornings! PS The paper tubes - what can I say - I kept thinking - I can MAKE something with this, but I never found the perfect project!

  10. Hi Renilde! Oh you poor thing - I hope you're feeling better soon. Whenever I'm sick I always take a spoonful a day of Manuka Honey... it works wonders! Love the Eskimo jacket... the photos and the styling are all just sublime. Love love love Moomin so much... I'm thinking of embroidering some Moomin brooches - do you know the copyright rules for Moomin? It's so old now, surely no-one actually owns it anymore or am I being incredibly naive??? :) Hope you feel better soon, hon. Kylie x

  14. Oh what a nice little sweater! By the way , the author of the moomins Tove Jansson has also written two books for adults (perhaps more) - quite particular but both very good. Very nordic in their feel. The summer book is one of them and a winters tale I think is the other.
