I found the perfect egg cups at last. It is a shame that they are not in shops yet and I have to wait for a month to get these porcelain Alessi beauties by Marcel Wanders (photo by Alessi).

Colourful (real) carnations look like fakes...It is almost impossible to believe that the nature can come up with colours like these. In addition to wonderful colour, the carnations take forever to die. You can have them for weeks and they still look great.

Do you still remember SYP, KOP and STS banks? I used to be a customer of KOP and now I am a more or less faithful customer of Nordea. I faintly remember that KOP changed to Merita that changed to Nordea...Anyhow, we found these two cute SYP cups from a flea market and even if I never was a SYP customer, I like the logo design and felt quite nostalgic when I saw these.

You do know why we celebrate Easter, don't you? I tend to buy Easter decorations with bunnies and chicks but this religious one looks just great and somehow it seems to fitting to have at least one religious ornament for Easter.

Klaus Haapaniemi did it again! He created a new series for Iittala: Tanssi (Dance). And of course I just love it. As I can't buy the whole tableware serie (I already have three Iittala series), I just bought the metal tin. We have collected old tins and I thought we might as well buy some new ones.

I have to rave about candle light before it gets too light in the evenings. We found these iron holders a couple of weeks ago and they are perfect for the old glass bottles. One of our old movie posters found a new place on the floor as we rearranged the furniture in the living room and it didn't have room on the wall because of the new curtains.

It is getting lighter every day but it is still dark enough to enjoy candlelight. And the candlelight is not even enough, we use Marset's Follow me lamp (linkki Marset) as an additional light source. Note: we painted the handle of the lamp to dark brown as neither of us likes light wood.

We wanted curtains in the middle of the room to give some privacy for overnight guests and to soften the room. We found the perfect 40's style cloth at Eurokangas. We were very lucky as they offered free sewing of the seams that week. If we had made the curtains ourselves, we'd had too short/too long/too crooked curtains and our marriage might have ended there and then, in the shadow of the sewing machine. But as it is, we are very happy with the result. The only thing still missing are dark red tassels to hold the curtains when not in use as a divider. The search starts..if you know where I can find these, let me know!
