Midsummer Mermaid





Here in Sweden we are preparing for this weekend’s Midsummer celebrations, this is definitely my most favourite Swedish holiday as its filled with joy, laughter, dance and yes, lots of Aquavit!  You can feel the excitement in the air everywhere at the moment. One of the many traditions for Midsummer is to make  flower garlands for the hair….there is an old wives’ tale that tells single girls to save 7 flowers from the wreath-making and place them under their pillow at bedtime on Midsummer’s night. The person you dream of is the one you are meant to marry….I have not had much luck with this, but then again, as the sun doesn’t truly set on the longest day of the year, I never really go to sleep properly and have definitely never remembered my dreams, but its still good fun! Try it this weekend and see if it works for you.

So anyway, what I am trying to say is: this post is inspired by the Midsummer Solstice. I have featured some lovely pieces from the Totally Top Shelf event that is now open and packed full of original mesh offerings from some of the best fantasy creators on the grid. Go and check it out if you haven’t already.

The heavenly skin is by Al Vulo for The Dressing Room Fusion and I am not going to say it again, but if you are not making this monthly event a priority by now, you are seriously missing out!

As we say in Sweden – “Glad Midsommar allihopa!”
