The last thing I got to finish this week before the opening were the small bags. I decorated them with angels, butterflies and pumpkins... Pumpkins is what autumn is all about, not to mention the colour but also in the comfort food of this season...Today I am making a pasta fazool ( heritage from my Italian grandfather ) it includes a lot of pumpkin, yummie , yummie , yummie...

Pink October , My shop opening and the Margot grey dress...

Dear friends! Months ago it ocurred to me that I had to create something special for the month of October . The important month for cancer awearness and so this sweater was created , a very pink sweater for a very pink month.
Last friday model Vilma and I drove to Rosendals trädgård here in Stockholm where we found the perfect atmosphere for this important photoshoot. The little hat Vilma is wearing I knitted the same day and a fresh rose from my garden gave it the final touch. There wasn´t so much time but I think that we managed to create the perfect feeling that I wanted for this important cause...
Makeup in the car and fast outfit changing and off we went to the most beautiful garden in Stockholm, Rosendals trädgård , I simply love the atmosphere here and really who does not ?!? Everyone who has not been here MUST visit...
 
 In the loving memory for every cancer patient... Familiy member and friend who has lost the battle with cancer and to the ones who continue to conquer it ! We will find a cure!!!
 
 
 
 
Today I bought  ( for my whole family )the special ribbon to support the cancer foundation here in Sweden , as I always do in October. The ribbon is designed by the swedish designer Bea Szenfeld and it is made of paper ( specially treated ), she specializes in working with paper. I love the design and happy to be able to buy it... I think that we all have to contribute with what we can for this important matter !!! Then in the afternoon they annonced that the nobel prize in Medicine will go to James P.Allison and Tasuku Honjo for their discovery of cancer therapy by inhibition of negative immune regulation !!! So wonderful news this monday of October !!! And If we continue to give and have faith we will beat this horrible disease!!!
 
 
 
My shop will open again on the 12th of October Dear friends and it will be with an Opera night . If you are interested in coming this night you will have to inbox me a message as the space is limited...
 
                                                                     Margot Grey Dress and Neko shoulder bag...
 
 
The margot dress in grey cotton jersey is a perfect match to the neko hand painted shoulder bag... This is also the last Margot dress of this Collection of dresses AW/18...
 
 
Dear friends this was all for this time...
