8.4.12

First day of spring

Already last year I and E. were thinking about purchasing a decent lawn trimmer yet somehow that plan faded then. But since proper spring will hopefully arrive in the near future, our old plan became visible again and we had to go to Tartu anyway. So, now we are the proud owners of that useful tool and finally I don't have to use lawn scissors to trim the lawn around the bushes, trees, quarrystones, grill house, chainlink fence etc. My hands are happy and thankful as well.

Whereas E. was helping his father, I and E.'s sister Elery did some shopping and as usually, I found a few (at least in my opinion) necessary goodies: a thrifted top with birdie pattern, also a cute white faux fur vest and purple earrings' set from the kids' department of Lindex. I really love that place since the earrings were only 0,89.- euros and the vest was 4,49.- euros.


I also bought two sets of tiny colourful decorative Easter eggs which go perfectly together with some branches I brought home a few weeks ago. Those green little leaves are so promising and remind me of true spring and warm summer which seem too far away right now. Every time it snows again makes me utterly disappointed but there's always some hope left and I still believe in four seasons.

Anyway, besides shopping I and Elery made a quite long walk with Elvis (yeah, everyone's name starts with an E: Erik, Elery, Elvis...) and most of the photos were taken during that stroll. Although the wind was horrible we still managed to somehow enjoy that walk and even didn't freeze. So, as always I hope you like my photos and of course be sure to tell me what you think.


I was wearing: jacket - Paul's Boutique /thrifted/; pants - Lindex; boots - Gebok; scarf - pieces /belongs to E.'s sister Pillery/; sunnies - D&G; belt - Diesel; earrings - hand-made /from a fair/; sweater - H&M /thrifted/; pink top - Halens.

  1. ahh supernunnu vest ja nii hea hinnaga kaa :O
    need munakesed on kaa üliarmsad :) võikski ideeliselt igaks aastaajaks olla mingid kaunistused, et koguaeg elu ilusam tunduks :) võtad ühed maha ja paned kohe teised :P

    1. olen sinu mõttega vägagi nõus :) praegugi on ilus vaadata neid oksi, mis on paksult roheliste lehekestega kaetud.. ja värvilised munad nende lehtede vahel. annab toale tohutult palju juurde!

  2. Kui see mingi firmasaladus ei ole, kus kaltsukas sa käid ? :D

    1. ei ole firmasaladus, aga sellele küsimusele ei ole ühest vastust.. oleneb, millisest linnast (või ükskõik, millisest muust asulast) jutt käib ;)

    2. No. Pärnu Viljandi Tartu liinilt midagi ? :D

      Delete
    3. hmm.. Pärnu omadest ma ei tea mitte ühegi sekkari nime (ega aadressi), Viljandis käies külastan põhimõtteliselt kõiki, mis sinna linnasüdamikku jäävad, aga nüüd pole tükk aega jõudnud seal tiiru teha. peab kavva võtma :P õigus, üks, mida alati proovin tsekkida, on Maxima juures, Ohhoo!-nimeline vast. ja Tartu.. taaskord nimesid ega aadresse ei tea, aga Vanemuise lähedal olen ühes käinud, samuti Veerikul ühes USA kaubaga variandis ja siis nendes Sõbralt Sõbrale keskustes/poodides.
      aga mu lemmiksekkar asub siiski siinsamas kodulinnas :)

  13. laupäev vist jah? see oli tõesti jube külm ilm või vähemalt tundus piisavalt kole, et mina oma nina küll toast välja pista ei soovinud :D see-eest täna on juba vähemalt midagi kevade moodi :)
