Halfway through! - Me-Made-June Days 13, 14 and 15

This month is passing really fast. Already halfway done with Me-Made-June.

Day 13

On Monday it was a public holiday, something about 40 days after Easter? I don't like public holidays here - everything is shut and I haven't worked a 9-5 job, well, ever so I don't have the benefit of getting paid for a day off. I would just do away with public holidays. Except maybe St Stephens Day on August 20th (because there is a nice big fireworks display).

I met up with Vitaly in the afternoon. We checked out the Czech beer festival that was going on. I wore my Come Back Summer dress (modified Burda 7829).

Then wandered around the city a bit. This is the Bazilika. It was a really hot day. Sweating.

Day 14

I had picked a huge bag of sour cherries on the weekend that needed to be used up. This is the fruits of my labour: jam!

I hadn't realised what a huge amount of fruit you need to make a small amount of jam. And what a lot of time. I spent two and a half hours squeezing the stones out of the cherries (these were smaller than usual ones). Got covered in cherry juice. Next time I am choosing an easier to prepare fruit.

I wore my black and white dress.

Day 15

I wore my fave summer dress (Burda 8693).

I got a lot of looks on the street. I don't know if that was because the split in the front of the skirt is so high or because I haven't done my hair since the weekend... 


  1. Great black and white dress. I'm jealous about the cherries. I love sour cherries and you pretty much can't get them in the US.

  2. I love cherry jam! That will be a fabulous treat for you this summer. The black and white dress is uber fantastic :)

  3. you look hot on the last pic, that s my fav dress of urs..

  4. Inspiring quest there. What happened after? Take care!
