I love 60's teak stuff. This lamp was without a shade but we found a perfect fit from Hemtex. Even my husband liked the pink colour as it goes very well with the brown and bronze.

This morning I started to put the new summer flowers in pots. As I started to take them out of the bags, I noticed that almost all flowers had frozen during the night. It seemed that the foliage was mostly still ok, so I potted the plants anyway. Now I hope they have energy to flower again.

My godmother had a restaurant Chez Marius in Mikonkatu, Helsinki from the 50´s to around the 90's. She gave a couple of Arabia ashtrays with her restaurant's logos to my parents as a present and now I have them. As my parents dind't use these at all, they are as good as new. I don't collect ashtrays but I love these two. The matchbox we happened to find in a flea market.

It is funny how old things are beautiful even if they are meant for everyday use. My father wasn't much of a carpenter, so this nail box is almost intact - and as it is from my father's father originally, I guess the not-quite-handy-with-the-hammer runs in the family. I must say, I have nothing to brag about myself. I am fifty years old and just nailed my first nail ever this winter..
