Scissors and Cutters

Hi there!
    Today I want to share with you our collection of scissors.
A couple of months ago I bought my new favorite little stork scissors (it's not that little) that is mostly for embroidery. And then I realized we do have lots of scissors and for different reasons in my house.

   The truth is that we have an affair with the scissors that goes way back in time. Since my grandpa was a barber and my grandma a custom dressier, they both used scissors in their daily routine; and now we do too! And of course as true old-stuff-suckers we have a nice and neat collections of scissors! I want you to note that I didn't add in this collection: kitchen scissors, a couple of other well sharped tailoring scissors, pruning shears, and other types of shears that we proudly own! hahaha enjoy!

The other day, a good friend gave me three old photographer's cutters and with that addition I believe my collection is heading to completion with success!

I really love the wavy pinking edge of that last cutter, which was used for the old-school wavy edges on photos. I've always wanted one like this, too pity that the head of the cutter is missing. Of course that means that I am on a mission to find a new one!

a day with friends

Summer is like already here! I know it's hard for me to get used it,too.(although I love summer!) Today was a hot day, and I was super tired from the whole week, so I decided to spend the day relaxing with friends. There was food of course, massively yummy, and sweets too! And when the time passed and the sweet breeze made our living a little cooler we sat in the balcony chit chatting and laughing, while our moves were slow and sleepy. It was perfect I may say ,that's why I wanted to share it with you.

Hallo there! I know it's been ages since the last time we blogged, but I guess we aren't used to it at all, cause I have toooons of stuff to blog about (thrifts, projects, interviews, photos) ...and I believe Panagiota too. Anyway , it's a promise that I will blog more often!

This last Sunday we had a vintage picnic party at alsos Veikou at Galatsi, the weather was just perfect , the people were the right ones and the mood chill! Hirollers were there to play for us (and for the other visitors of the park,also, who were just magnetized by our terrific group) and the Rollin Foxes were there also to dance and of course to eat some of the delicious sandwiches and pop corn and stuff the ladies had prepared.
I woke up early to prepare my own basket of goods. I took my thermos, my favorite afghan, wore my polka dots skirt, and off to the park!! Here are just some of the photos I shot that sunny sunny day! Let's do it again people!

my basket and my plaid thermos!
