BUSY WEEK, BURLESQUE WEEKEND


My burlesque box. (Of course it does not fit everything.)


It's been such a busy week for me, working in the mornings, doing some freelance jobs in the afternoon and sewing in the evening! But now the stress is almost over,I'm heading to Tampere for a burlesque workshop tonight and the Circus & Burlesque party tomorrow! And yes I will take the new shoes with me. (For those of you that don't know; Tampere is another city in Finland a couple of hours from Helsinki.)

I'm still not ready with everyhing for Saturday though so I guess I'll be sewing the last pearls on my hair fascinator (the red bow in the picture, it's going to turn out quite nice I think)it in the car...
I've never really spent any time in Tampere before so it's almost like going on a mini vacation for me. And of course I've made a great roadtrip cd with lots of rautalankaa music :)

och varför jag skriver kommentarer på engelska har jag ingen aning om.. kanske för att din blogg är på engelska.

Oh that sounds so exciting!
When I read about event's like that I really hate where I live... Nothing seems to happen here.

Your box though looks like it can make a lot of things happen! ;)

Jannike : It was great :)THe workshop was all really nice with not too many girls, all tassels and champagne. Who will be hosting the workshop in Sthlm? Ajo, nu tog jag själv och svarade på engelski först...kommer liksom automatiskt.

Wendy & Sak & Sueper : Thanks, I did have a great time :)

Linn & Indie Chery : yes Ranna/Onl Shallow does lie there, but I didn't really have time to browse around town, although I bet she would've had great tips indeed...

VIntage Darling : Tack, det var en fin h elg, Inte bara festern utan också all tid emellan med bilfärder, morgonmåls pyssel och trång bäddsoffa :)

The CLothes Horse : I hope you will one day too!

Madeleinemiranda : it sure is full of surprises :D
