An uninvited friend.

A cute little fox. We fed him ham, bread and potatoes. He's so adorable!

Finally here!

The view from the front. Hopefully this time I won't get too many mosquito bites.

What I spent all yesterday doing.

Folds in fabrics + me = yawn. Well atleast I've done half of it. Today I'm leaving for the country. No electricity or running water. If I only had a few more dresses (and someone to play along with me) I'd pretend I were a 18th century farmgirl!

Pictures from the picknick!

So last saurday we went on a picknick. This was the first "real" event I've been to. I've seen one from the kitchen once when I was working as a maid but I never really had time to talk to people or enjoy myself (although you won't believe what I saw and heard that night!). Anyhow, there where quite a few people at Drottningholm that day and I'm not joking when I say there were more pictures taken of us than the actual palace. :)
As you can see in the first picture, the weather was lovely but later on the sky went gray and almost everyone headed back home. It rained for a few minutes but the air was still nice and warm.

In this picture you can see my younger sister on the left and myself on the right.

Me and my step-mother carrying the basket home.

My first dress!

This is the first dress i've actually finished. It's a late 18th century chemise dress. My sister made one too so during the picknick last saturday we looked almost like twins. Not identical though.
