It's always a good time

Hello! Long time no see, my dear readers.
Our holidays have flown by not far from supersonically but before telling you vacation stories I have one other post to share. It's about a working Saturday in small Vändra borough which is the birthplace of the highly noted Estonian poet Lydia Koidula.

My holy mission there was handling the bulky lawn mower and I did it boldly even through the rainfall. The grass of that place was superhigh by the way and partially reminded me of a meadow. However, I enjoy decent challenges!


thrifted Tommy Hilfiger sweater | thrifted Quelle blouse | thrifted H&M leggings | Pearlz boots | Lindex birdie earrings | unknown insect earrings.

Of course I also found time for photography and some snapshots which are now displayed here in my blog. Besides you can see my simple outfit from that day (29/09/2012). I wore different clothes while working... obviously, because who would do gardening in high heels, right?
I have been there and done that, haha.


Anyway, we will be in Vändra next weekend as well since a trailer is waiting for my precious Saab there and we have to transport it to my hometown in order to start using it. But now some hints about the once arriving holiday posts:
scenic Tori borough, Tervis Medical Spa in Pärnu, lightsome thrifting, an interesting stroke of luck in a thrift store, Valmiera in Latvia, going slightly crazy in a Cubus store, three outfits and a whole lot more! For the time being I'm going to leave you with my photos and hope you'll enjoy!


ps. The long-awaited season premiere of The Vampire Diaries strikes tonight! I'll probably watch it tomorrow but what about you, guys? Do you love The Vampire Diaries as much as I do?

  4. I like the embroidery detail on your shirt. Also, your photos are getting better and better.
    I also like the last one the best, with the pots. There's something very atmospheric about it.

    1. I was not joking, for instance I have planted flowers in superhigh wedges and asymmetrical skirt. crazy but absolutely true :) and I also met an Estonian minister that day!

  18. selle pealkirjaga hakkas mind mingi laul kummitama. õigupoolest see üks lause hakkas mul peas mingit viisi aretama ja mulle meenus, et olen raadiost kuulnud, et see on mingi laul vist. minu muusikalistest eelistustest kaugel, mistõttu ma rohkem sõnu ei teagi, aga peas ta on ja keeldub lahkumast. loll laul :D brauser streigib kusjuures ikka veel ju! ma ei saa aru, mis värk sellega on... lampi. aga see on väga häiriv igatahes

    1. haha, kusjuures, see laul.. ma ei ole üldse selle laulu fänn, aga ühel hetkel hakkas kummitama ja kummitas nii kõvasti, et jõudis ka siia blogisse. tundus lihtsalt sobivat. aga ma ei tea, mis häda su brauseril on. millist sa kasutad üldse?
