Getting ready..

This evening I went over to Ruth.
First , we went to the church.. It was a service about the new year.. :)
After that we went to her home to get ourselves ready for the night.
When Ruth and I want to make ourselves ready we always find ourselves doing all other activities except actually  getting ourselves ready..
It started when Ruth said to me: “Okey, you can find me anything you want on my room and I will wear it tonight”
So I made her wear a viking-helmet
10 minutes later we were dressed up like complete idiots.
Then Ruth told a funny story about someone on Chatroulette that was dressed up very weird. I never did/heard of chatroulette before so Ruth explained me what it was… And so we were going to do chatroulette. It was really funny. We really came across total retards. (they probably thought that about us as well, cause we were still wearing the clothes :p)..
After a while we saw the time and we had to hurry a lot.. It was fun :)


Past day I’ve spend in Dordrecht. I really love that city. I'm born in Dordrecht and most of my family lives there. 
I went to my grandmother. My greatgrandfather is not doing well. He’s old and getting more and more ‘dement’, while time’s passing by. My grandmother is really having difficulties with that. I wanted to visit her to be there for her and cheer her up a little. My grandmother really is the most wonderful person in the world. It looks like she’s only living for others, and she always wants the best for everyone. (: I love her a lot. <3
She decided it would be better for my greatgrandfather to move him to an ‘institution’, he’s barely able to take care of himself. And in the old people’s home he had been for the last years, he just didn’t get enough attention. He wasn’t capable of doing much on his own anymore.

Also my grandma and I wanted to spend some time together. My grandma knows I really like vintage shops and had the idea to take me to a really big one. Really sweet <3 We’re the only two persons in the family that can appreciate such stuff and clothes and it really was fun going there with her. :)
Wardrobe with all kind of stuff. I bought the elephant painting at the top. <3
My grandma and me got ourselves tea and coffee.
Then suddenly an old man came to me. He had bought a cellphone, because his brother had been robbed and he was so afraid that this would also happen to him, that he wanted to have a cellphone in case of emergency. He only had no clue at all how to install or even use it. He came to me and I felt a bit sorry for him..
So I installed everything and gave him a cellphone course, haha.
My grandma and I also went to La Place to have lunch and as trendy as my grandma is we’ve also went to normal clothing shops such as Vila, Vero Moda and H&M, afterwards we did groceries. Went home and made dinner. :)

La Place <3
Wanted to take something I never tasted or even heard of before, so I took the Hungarian Goulash soup.
My grand mother and me made a funny picture in a photobooth <3
Some of the things I bought:
A second hand elephant brooch <3
A really awesome painting <3
(It probably looks like I am an elephant maniac, but it’s just coincidence, haha)
A rosary <3
I always have the weird habbit when I run into a vintage shop that sells CD’s to pick the ones I never ever even heard of and just buy them. In the past I’ve really bought some really crappy ones, but a few years ago I also bought the CD Medulla of Bj√∂rk and I’m still really happy with that one. :)
Shirt (:
Original concert shirt of the Sex Pistols
And I bought much more! But if I would post every thing my blog posts will be enormous!
And of course I found a few things from my grannies attic:

My grannies vintage attic

Tomorrow I will visit my granny. One of the things we have in common is that we love vintage clothing. My grandmother has collected clothes since the 60′s/70′s. She always got a lot of clothes from a lot of people. This was in order that she could make a selection of which clothes were apropriate for (poor) people in Romenia. One time in every year, she and some other people from the church went to Romenia to bring clothes and other needs. By this time my grandma has an attic full of the weirdest and coolest clothes ever.. :D
Lotte and I always enjoy going there.. (: And the good thing about it is that since my grandma doesn’t wear it (obviously), we can keep what we find.. :) (only my parents aren’t too happy about that, cause they can't really appreciate vintage clothes..:p)
These were some previous times we either were at the attic or got ourselves clothes and wore it:
