red rosy beanie and red boots

rosy beanie

Behold the pretty wonderful beanie I go for myself as a birthday gift. It was another case of almosst-sold-ot-but-I-managed-to-snatch-one. And every time this happens with colourful clothes I wonder who buys them, but me, because I never see those colourful items being worn by other people. At least not in Sweden. Perhaps clever, colourful tourists buy them?

It's from Swedish brand Gudrun Sjödén and made from organic cotton with a dash of mulesing-free merino wool - I'm glad they actually made a thing of the wool being mulesing-free as I never buy merino because of its often immense cruelty in production - thin and perfect for chilly but not very cold autumn/winter days. But most of all it's a lovely rosy, colourful piece perfect for the long, dark and glum season.

And no it's meant to be worn on a human head, not used as a supersized sleeping baf for small sized woollies. Despite what the picture might suggest.

The boots that match the beanie very well is from the same brand - also a case of  sold-out-but-we'll-refill-the-stock-so-please-order - but not mine, but my mother's. Not my cup of tea in style, but I love the bright red colour called 'cranberry'. I'm sure she'll look great in them for many winter seasons to come!

How about you, 
something old or something new 
on head and feet this winter season?

Good morning, how are you?

My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.

I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of used stamps because through them, you can see pictures about fauna, flora, monuments, landscapes etc. from all the countries. As every day is more and more difficult to get stamps, some years ago I started a new collection in order to get traditional letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately, it is impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are very small countries with very few population, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.

For all this, I would ask you one small favor:
Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Sweden? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Sweden in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and an original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:

Emilio Fernandez Esteban
Avenida Juan de la Cierva, 44
28902 Getafe (Madrid)

If you wish, you can visit my blog where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.

Finally, I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

Yours Sincerely

Emilio Fernandez

Love your hat Miss pia, a very nice birthday gift to yourself. Our merino sheep seem to live the good life in NZ, living on farms with lots of fresh air and grass, and they need to be shorn of wool to keep them cool in the spring and summer weather, when it would be too hot for them to have huge fleeces on their backs.
