This little girl had her picture taken somewhere in Africa in 1943. I found it here. Isn't it a beautiful picture !
Hi, all you vintage lovers out there in cyberspace ! I´m still in Ghana. But next week I´ll be back home in "Euroland" again. Can you believe that I´m actually beginning to miss cooler, colder, weather ...
Its been almost impossible to keep my blog updated due to, amongst other things, constant poor Internet connection and new challenges here in Ghana, so my "blog lovin´" has been limited. But on that topic, thanks Jessica C - may you too have inspired days ! And to miss Madeline - meditation can be difficult, but also extremely awarding and "soul centering" - give it a try... :)
Although I won´t be home for more than 2 months, before I leave for Ghana again to complete my work here, I´m really looking forward to some quality "vintage time" when I´m home. Flee markets and vintage shops here I come ! :)
But for now its not so much 1940s fashion as a more authentic Ghanaian look that is needed. Tomorrow there is a cocktail for possible sponsors. And as officials from two different ministries have been invited as well as the ambassador from my own country, I thought I better "clean up my act" a little ... So, I went and bought myself a new dress for the occasion ! :) Unfortunately, I´ve been trying for sometime now to upload pictures ( its not working...), maybe I´ll have more luck another day.
