FOR CHRISTMAS ____________

Christmas is the best time I know and I will never get tired of giving Christmas gifts and getting some as well! And I've already got one of my Christmas gifts that I wished for, time for myself. I wanted to have few undisturbed days, just to do what I wanted to do. Like my own a mini-vacation. So earlier this week I took the train to Stockholm. I hade time to buy some Christmas presents and meeting my brother and friends. I ate lunch together with my mentor Lotta Agaton and got so inspired of just talking to her. I met Emma Fexeus and joined her ​​when she got her tattoo at my brother's newly opened tattoo studio La roibe Noir. So I've already got the most important gift this Christmas, time with people I value and time for myself. But yes of course there are some things on my wish list too!

DEKO __________ my christmas home

As I mentioned in previous post my Christmas home is featured this month in Finnish interior magazine called Deko. I love Deko magazine and I think it communicates the Finnish design/interior style amazingly well and makes it relevant even to international audience! The story is coordinated and written by Jonna Kivilahti and photographed by me. Jonna has even a blog called MRS Jones where you can find more pictures from the story. Published in Deko (no 84) december 2012

INSPIRATION ______ Transparent Picture Frame

I´m having a serious crush right now for interior stuff made of plastic and perspex! I just love the transparent and light feeling with the material and that you can see throug it. Like when used acrylic meny holder as a picture frame for my boy´s initials, it looks like the characters almost floats in the air. I love that!

My advent calendar became this year really simple again! Even the first calendar dates are already opened, I still wanted to show you what I did, I call it -one day at a time calendar. I think it's never too late to start making this one!

Sorry it's been so quiet here on the blog lately! But I promise I have had some really nice reasons for it! I´ve been working with some new products that will arrive to my shop next week, as lamp shades (show you them later) and these candle holders in steel and brass. I can't believe it's already the season! But now is the time to start thinking about Christmas! So just as a reminder the delivery time for international shipping during the holiday season can take longer time so I recommend that you place your order soon if you would like your orders to arrive before 24th December. You can also set the recipients' address to other than yours so we can directly ship what you purchase to your friends and family worldwide! One more thing, my Christmas home is featured in the latest Finnish Deko magazine that is out now, but more of it later! Now I just want to wish you all a wonderful first advent sunday!
