Loop a piece of white cord around the top of your jar and tie into a knot.

TIP:  Rubber band
HERE’S A TIME-SAVING TIP THAT WILL MAKE THIS DIY PROJECT EVEN EASIER:

Fasten the piece of fabric around the lid with a rubber band.
This will secure the fabric and make your project childishly simple.

See Swedish Princess Sofia’s Stunning Wedding Dress and Tiara! (PHOTO)

Forget about becoming a princess, we want that dress!

Sofia Hellqvist wore a stunning Ida Sjöstedt dress to her Saturday wedding to Prince Carl Philip of Sweden in Stockholm. The gown featured lace sleeves over a whit bodice, looking very similar to Princess Kate‘s wedding look. The 30-year-old former reality TV star topped off her look with a small new tiara that was a gift from King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia. (Check out how her bling stacks up against other royal wedding tiaras.) One of her tattoos on the back of her neck was visible with her hair pulled into a chignon.

Per poter definire qualcuno adorabile,

è necessario stabilire chi non lo è.

Molti non lo sono perchè non ne sono all’altezza.

Non basta essere eleganti,

graziosi, delicati e belli,

occorre non conoscere imbarazzo,

poichè una creatura che sia

consapevole di essere adorabile,

inevitabilmente non lo è.

Nationaldagen – national day (June 6) and the national cake no one seems to know about

semiswede

Sweden was one of the last countries to adopt a national day. Nationaldagen is the 6th of June and only became a red day (a day off from work) in 2005. There aren’t a lot of food associations with this particular holiday and many people in Sweden are surprised to learn there is actually a nationaldagsbakelsen (a national cake).
