Party Nails

Saturday 2 July we were invited to my SIL’s 50th birthday, and to her honour her I designed these nails:
She loves cats, so I stamped Hello Kitty on my thumb and put pink rhinestones in her eyes. On my index finger a cupcake with a red rhinestone as berry on the top, she loves everything with cupcakes. On my middle finger a gift – since it was her birthday. On my ring finger a diamond, since she – as I do – loves jewellery and at my pinky a pink heart-shaped rhinestone, since my little finger often is too little to stamp motifs on. I wore a pink dress from the fifties therefore the nails had to be pink. I think she liked it.

The previous week I stamped this fruit theme to honour Summer, again I have used my new grey Opi polish as base:
Also very nice and even my (very) male physiotherapist has noticed my nails. :)

Well, I also transformed my toe nails to ladybugs a few days ago:

Vacation with Tiny Honk

Have you all had a nice vacation?

We have! And we were quite lucky with the weather. In week 27, DH and I drove out in the blue in my vintage car - an Opel GT that turned 40 this year. We did not have many plans except for going to the City of Toender in Southern Jutland, because we thought the city is so nice and the area so beautiful. And I also wanted to go to Lübeck in Germany.

On our way we had to change spark plugs, which we found very cheap at a local shop:

In the City of Toender we accidentially ran into a vintage car meeting. We were eating our dinner when suddenly a lot of lovely vintage cars came and lined up:

So we were asked to park my little car among all the others:

We visited the Mill of Hoejer which is beautifully restored and for about 5 dollars we could also visit a nice museum and a beautiful old garden:

Here you see Tiny Honk from the top of the mill:

We also visited the famous floodgates - here I am with the flat and beautiful landscape in the background:

We drove to the City of Moegeltoender where our Prince and his lovely wife lives, but since they were not at home, we had to buy our afternoon tea and perhaps the biggest apple cake in the world at "granny's café":

There was so lovely and she was also an artist, you could buy trays and shrines painted by her. This sign is very charming:

This is a three-dimensional city map of the City of Lübeck. It is very elaborate and even has the street names and landmarks written in Braille:

The day after we drove to Timmendorfer Beach (also in Germany). I want a beach chair like these, they are simply too charming:

You could also buy ice creams the old-fashioned way:

And you could buy SHOES! Ooops, I bought TEN pairs in total:

They were all so cheap that I could not afford to let them go. From left to right: three flat pairs at 8 dollars each, two pairs with a French heel (which I can use now!) at respectively 8 dollars and 19 dollars (my most expensive pair), a pair of classic black stiletto at 9 dollars, a pair with kitten heels at 18 dollars, a pair of pink patent leather pinup heels at 18 dollars, a red and white pair at 9 dollars, and a pair of very early sixties black slingbacks at 9 dollars. So now I cannot even convince myself that I need more shoes! :)
