Window shopping before christmas, 1940. Notice the wonderful hat that lady is wearing on the right! Wow!

Krtek (Mole) was born in 1956
This years advent calendar starts with sad news. I posted this picture last year too, but today i'm posting it to honour the man who invented this lovely little creature. The father of the Krtek, Zdenek Miler has passed away.

"Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a Ring. I don't mean on the phone."
Or a hand piece actually. "The Offering" by Betony Vernon. Those claw rings are nice too, but that hand piece...wow! If only i had few thousand extra cash. Someday that wonderful piece on jewelry..no, art will be mine!
She's done other really cool stuff too, check out www.betonyvernon.com
p.s. Her jewelry is gorgeous but so is she. What a beauty!

One of my favourite photos of Maila.
On the set 1954
She had many different looks and she was much more than "just" the raven haired tv show hostess.
The Mystic, by Bernard of Hollywood
Look at that hair! In 1955!
At home with one of her cats, 1955

Me and Anni, photo Tipi Taskinen
My birthday is 26th of november, and when i went to work that day, there was a surprise waiting for me! Cake, champagne, presents!
I'm working in Atelje Teatro at the moment, and i like it! We're making ballet costumes for the national opera. I really needed a break from my hat business.. Ofcourse i'm making hats too, but not full time. I'll be back in my own atelier next month.
This picture was taken that morning, we had breakfast in Hotel Kämp.

I sometimes buy old photos from second hand shops and thrift stores. I usually buy pictures of everyday life, to see what people were really wearing. I also like photos of costume parties and photos that were taken without posing too much or failed photos where someone wasn't standing still etc.
But this photo i bought because he is gorgeous. Those eyes are mesmerizing! I wonder who he was.
He reminds me of someone i've met.
Another picture of the same guy.
This is someone else. Maybe i've posted this pic before?

To my ex who never achieved anything and probably never will. One of the saddest parasites (sorry darling, but you know it's true) i've ever known. I hope you have a happy life (it's up to you, you know) and that we'll never meet again.

Isn't she the cutest?!
We had a wonderful photo shoot with Saara Salmi and Ulrika. I love working with my friends (and talented, beautiful people!). I just listed these two little hats to Etsy.
More photos coming soon :)
Sometimes it's very hard to find a perfect present for that special someone... Why, here it is! If you are looking for a gift for you husband/boyfriend/girlfriend. Or maybe you would like to offer a day as a pin-up girl for your girl/friend/mother?
Have you been naughty or nice? Doesn't matter, this gift is good for both!
