Don't give up yet

It's a bit chilly in the mornigs but after raking the leaves and deadheding the summer flowers it still looks a bit like summer.

I see red

I love red and my husband loves airplanes so buying this can was a given. What do you mean what is it for? It´s for loving the look of it, of course!

First things first

Of course I bought wallpaper for the kitchen before even signing the papers of the house, wouldn't anyone? I just had to as I fell for this Stig Lindberg design at first sight and it just happened that Värisilmä had a campaign lasting the day I saw these the first time. 20 % discount and only for the day, what else there was to do but buy the damn things!

Travellin man

Our "new" picnic case has seen the Niagra falls in the 50's. We don't aim that far, we'll be happy if our Opel Kadet will take us to the neighboring village. But it is good to have a case that has seen some world in its time!

Even I can see the time

I love the 50's, the design of everyday objects was great and if something was specifically designed, the design was amazing.

We bought a wall/ceiling/table clock that used to adorn Kuparitalo's walls in Helsinki. Kuparitalo (Copper house) was designed by architects Blomstedt & Lampén in 1958 for Outokumpu Oy.

Someone has changed the clockworks from one needing a central clock to an ordinary electric device - good for us as now the clock works even at home. The clock has identical working clocks on both sides and it doesn't matter if you hang the thing upside down, it still shows the right time.

The clocks don't get any better than this!
