Every day, I have many DIY ideas on my mind, and in one of those inspirations moments my niece Laura came to my mind, and how pretty she would be wearing this handmade top.
While she´s putting her things down on her trolley, to make that great change in her way of living, she´s making the most in these summer days, with plenty of things to do, many things filled with emotions. She´s always taking good care of her appearance, and the best way to do it is wearing handmade cloths, done with love and care.
Today she´s wearing the Green Lunnis Top, and will fill with laughter the city, maybe when she arrives home, she might put it down on her trolley, and take it with her with all her memories, Maybe? Hope she has the opportunity to wear it, so she won´t have to wait until next summer to wearing it.
