This is over at Jeanette's place the other evening. Read over at her blog how we met - it's truly wondrous. We had a great night, together with the lovely Monne (back to camera). Good food, cool wine, clever crafting and lots of laughs. Jeanette is making brooches out of tin jars. No material is strange to her, she masters it all from wool to wire. She also masters two houses, two daughters, two cats, one full time job and still makes you feel like you're the most interesting thing that happened to her today.

As Lili M. said "both you girls rock!" I still can't get over that you live in the same town and met via blogging....it's a fairytale.

I can just feel the Swedish summer seeping through the laptop here in my Aussie winter. The jeans jacket is fab! Oh, and regarding the cranes..clearly the oldest Miss Helylle is a chip of the ol' block.

Thanks dear Anna for your kind words!

Yeah, you are definitely cool enough to pull off a denim jacket. I admire artistic people who never fear raw materials!
