I went to the Hietsu flea market on Sunday, and found a couple of wonderful things. First, my little Lomonosov bird (the unindentified one on the back left) got company! The winter wren (in front) cost 7 euros, and the snow bunting (on the right) 9 euros. I am a huge fan of the Lomonosov animal figurines in general, but the birds are something special - they say that each individual bird is painted and/or shaped in a unique way, so that two are never quite alike.

The birds, the birds!
I have not been around because I have been having laptop trouble (again!). Everything should be working smoothly now, so I hope to be posting more often.
This is the outfit I wore at Mietti's birthday party on Saturday:
I got this trench coat for 3 euros. The sleeves are a bit short, but I figured I could just roll them up to reveal the tartan lining, and perhaps add long gloves. I am not sure whether I should hem the coat or not, right now I am leaning towards leaving it the way it is.
