“Eleanore Rigby picks up the rice in the church where her wedding has been;
Lives in a dream.
Waits at the window,
Wearing a face that she keeps in a jar by the door.
Who is it for?
All the lonely people, where do they all come from?
All the lonely people, where do they all belong?” ( lyrics The Beatles )
In The Vintage Fairy Tales,
no one needs to be lonely.
We are here for you.
Going into hibernation seems to be a pretty nice lifestyle.
Some of The Vintage Fairy Tales´ inhabitants you´ll find under a bunch of fallen leaves,
or deep under the covers in a bed somewhere.
If you need to contact any of us,
turn to The Skating Monkey,
he is always alert.
Mr Hedgehog is made by me but has now moved to Colorado Springs,
where the climate is better.
“When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody’s help in anyway.
But now these days are gone, I’m not so self assured,
Now I find I’ve changed my mind, I’ve opened up the doors.” ( lyrics by The Beatles )
The Skating Monkey and I have become very close friends,
we always help each other, our doors are wide open.
When he offers me a Tiramisu, I just say….
- Yes please!
Have a great week and thank´s for the LOVELY comments on the previous post,
…..and yes I have always loved polka dots!
“Say you just can’t live that negative way,
If you know what I mean;
Make way for the positive day,
‘Cause it’s news (new day) – news and days -
New time (new time), and if it’s a new feelin’ (new feelin’), yeah! -
Said it’s a new sign (new sign):
Oh, what a new day!” ( lyrics, Bob Marley )
Oh what a new day in The Vintage Fairy Tales!
The Skating Monkey is proudly wearing his pink bow and has recently started
a frantic collecting of vintage wristwatches.
I´m wearing the red lipstick as always
and it happens every now and then that I buy myself a new beautiful dress.
We´re relatively young, we´re happy and we have good self-esteem, hallelujah .
We love the lives we live and we live the lives we love, we are never jealous on anyone else.
We take care of ourselves, we even go to the darn gym!
We know how to work hard but we also know how to rest and relax.
We don´t carry on aggressions towards anyone and we´re doing our best in trying to navigate
towards positive things.
We believe we have things pretty much under control,
and we learnt early on from a Swedish TV show for kids,
not to take shit from anyone.
We know when it´s time to move on, we know when yesterday is gone.
Negative energy can never reach The VFT radar,
it jumps back to the sender.
Life goes on in The Vintage Fairy Tales,
we are happier than ever.
We hope you all are.
This is The Vintage Fairy Tales,
true and untrue stories/
Welcome to my exhibition at Flique i Underjorden, Malmö!
Thank´s for the great response to my previous post about
The Vintage Fairy Tales cottage!
You may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
You may find yourself in another part of the world
You may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
You may find yourself in a beautiful house with a beautiful wife
You may ask yourself, well, how did I get here? ( Once in a life time, Talking Heads )
When you´ve reached The Vintage Fairy Tales
don´t ask questions.
Just relax and let the days go by.
Thank´s for visiting
“And No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World

Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change” ( Michael Jackson )
Take a look at yourself and make an embroidery,
that´s how we do self-portraits in The Vintage Fairy Tales.
If you need some inspiration just talk to The Skating Monkey,
he works as an artistic coach these days.
Have a great weekend!
