"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! If only i had few thousand extra cash. Someday that wonderful piece on, art will be mine! 

 She's done other really cool stuff too, check out

p.s. Her jewelry is gorgeous but so is she. What a beauty!

Inspiration, The wonderful Maila Nurmi, a.k.a. Vampira

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

Let's Not Talk About Love! Betty Hutton - Let's Face It

A Surprise party!

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.
And i have new glasses! I won them in a competition by Lensway. What do you think? They are quite different from the other ones i have.

Photos of strangers

 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? 

"..but when i'm bad, i'm better."

Yes "darling", this blog post is about you.

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.

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!

ELLE Style Awards 2011 and ethical fashion for me, please!

 Kirsi, Vesa, Minttu, me and Jan.

Few weeks ago (i think all my posts start "Few weeks ago.." i never seem to have enough time to update my blog..) i attended the annual ELLE Style Awards

I was wearing a stunning Minna Hepburn dress, the "Elsie"! I absolutely adore it! So 30s but still very "today". It's made of fine wool fabric and has lovely lace details on the sleeves. And it's hand made in England. AND Minna was rewarded that night for her efforts to create ethical fashion, yay!

 And the shoes..! I fell in love when i saw these Beyond Skin beauties in a webshop
 Read this introduction from their web page and you'll understand why i was exceptionally excited to wear these shoes:

"Beyond Skin is an ethical fashion label creating beautiful handmade ladies designer vegan shoes and boots in the most environmentally friendly manner we possibly can. Our vegetarian footwear is made from some of the finest, recycled fabrics and we work closely with our factories to ensure we reduce the carbon footprint of our ethical shoes wherever possible."

How about that!? If you live in Finland, i recommend you to get your own pair of these amazing shoes from They have free shipping and returns. Though i'm pretty sure you don't want to return these lovelies...

Tero Kuitunen must be my favourite jewellery designer at the moment! Now i have two of his Diamonds mint green and white. This one i got from Naked.

Hat from my own collection.
