Spring is in full swing here in Germany. The flowers are blooming and the sun is shining. We spent the morning at the SaarbrΓΌcken Flea Market. Unfortunately we only picked up a few new scarves, but it was a lovely walk along the river in the shadow of the old castle walls.

I recently purchased this blouse from Heyday Vintage Style and I can already tell that it will become a staple in my wardrobe. I’m in love with these “feedsack” type prints, they are so happy and bright. And the cut of this blouse is just perfection. It’s based on a vintage pattern and some characteristics such asΒ the strong pointed collar and darted shoulders show up in sewing patterns from 1941 – 1946.

I hope you are all enjoying the coming of this wonderful new season.

Dragonfly in Amber

I am in love with the book series Outlander by Diana Gabaldon! This series currently has 8 books and the author is working on the 9th book now. Last year the series was made into a TV series on STARZ and it’s absolutely amazing. They really cast the characters well and it’s beautifully filmed. The second season will start next year and it’s based on the second book, Dragonfly in Amber.

Last week I read on Diana Gabaldon’s Facebook page that she was going to be in Germany doing a USO Tour with two other authors. I was over the moon to find that the event was happening only 15 minutes from my house, so we made plans to attend.

Of course I had to dress thematically, so I wore my amber yellow dress and dragonfly brooch.
