Shop Swed I Say!

Finally I present to you my goodies transported all the way back from Sweden!
Not a bad collection if I do say so myself.  I didn't even really shop too much this time round.


I absolutely lovelovelove this new old dress!
Cannot wait to wear this come Autumn/Winter.

Two summer numbers ready to wear right now.
All three vintage dresses were purchased at the flea market at Nostalgia Fest.
The lovely lady gave them to me for around £85 together. 

Moomin love! I bought these cookie cutters for my sister.

More cats-eye sunnies... one can never have too many.

Keep smelling sweet with some solid perfume - lychee darlin'
I thought this would be great during this heat and easy to carry around.

Mini Dottie - a little antique pup. She looks pretty old.
I picked her up for less than a pound!

Funny that because I had been searching for a swan planter with no avail.
When you want something, go to a Swedish flea.

From my favourite antique store!

~ Two pairs of beaded clip-on earrings ~
~ Two sets of pearl & diamante hair clips ~
~ A unique pearl studded lucite hairband ~ 

And my delicious straw hat which you have already seen me in at The Chap Olympiad.
This little number was only £2! How can I not love it even more.
Great for adding on accessories of many colours.


Well, that's that for this trip.  Although since coming back to blighty I have managed to acquire many more goodies which I shall make a post of soon.  Unfortunately I will not be making back to Sweden again this summer.  Instead I shall be holidaying with the family with our doggies!  Luxury log cabins and forest wandering ahead!

For now, I will have to love you and leave you as I need to get ready for a launch party.

Take care,
Alison xxx

Which shop did you get the cutters from? There are some characters I've been looking for and haven't found, but I see them in your photo! :D

Hi Teresa, I don't quite remember the name of the shop but it is in the Haga area with the cobbled streets and cafes. Such a lovely cute area! Hope you find the missing characters. :)
