Instagram October

Nov 9, 2012 in Books, Dolls and toys, Halloween, Sewing and Instagram


A belated Instagram October, and a very meagre one. Work has been taking all my energy lately and you may have noticed I haven’t blogged much either. I didn’t even have the energy to make a Halloween costume! Though I did have grand plans which will have to wait until next year.


Looking at buildings on my way to Henrik’s workplace.


Waiting for the last train home after Miriam’s birthday party.

Had my own birthday three days later.


My newish ‘49er jacket.


Working on a 40s style ski suit!


Henrik got me this book for my birthday. I’ve wanted it for a long time and it was great!


Finally bought my first Barbie and the Rockers doll, Dana!


I didn’t have a costume but we did have decorations (and I did wear Halloween themed makeup and a bat in my hair at work).

And some from Henrik’s Instagram.

Visiting Henrik at work. Check out the cool art deco painting.

Out and about with new jacket and new loafers.

Going to the museum of modern art.

Nice paintings. There were only two or three rooms that really interested me though.

I’ve been hunting for a new pair of glasses. I decided on a pair of completely round ones which are very Miss Lemon.

Off to work on a frosty morning.
