  2. I loved these over at Lumetta Deborah - thanks for reposting them here as well as the dress and painting. I love every kind of folk art. Just enjoying my latest world of interiors which was supposed to be the very last after a long time, but there are lovely things in there that are much in this spirit. I may have to do a u-turn, or just come visit you every day!

  5. We have the same Easter witch tradition in Finland! Something I miss here in Australia.

    The dress is absolutely divine. Especially the embroidery is exquisite.

  6. la robe est vraiment fantastique, elle serait une joli robe de mariée dans une fête de campagne, entourée de balles de foin, de lumière de fin d'après midi près d'une grange...
