The lottery of life

Our shop used to be the village lottery/betting dealer right to the closing of the business. So..of course we had to start looking for lottery/betting dealer (Veikkaus in Finnish) stuff. I would love to get lottery slips from the 50's/60's but I guess nobody has saved these as the dealers got new ones every year. Well, I am happy enough with the adverts we have found.

Sweet Christmas

Chocolate lollipops in red and white - perfect for Christmas. I saw these at Tuomaan Markkinat in Helsinki and had to buy some. Maybe all Christmas decorations should be edible, you could just eat everything after Christmas, no need to pack things up and try to find place for all the boxes...hmm..

Merry Christmas, guaranteed

This must be a first. I bought an Alessi Christmas bauble today and it has a two year guarantee! I don't know what the guarantee covers and it doesn't much matter as I am sure to loose the receipt anyway. Never thought anybody would guarantee Christmas decorations (less they are of gold).

Dream kitchen (or kitchen dreams)

Don't you just see the perfect 50's kitchen with yellow-black retro wallpaper and candy colour furniture? You don't? Well, I do (and am hoping the husband will keep up with the good work..)

Not much of a shopper

When you have everything, you still don't have enough Christmas decorations. I went shopping today (due to Black Friday) and the only things that catched my eye were a couple of baubles for Christmas.

Lazy day

I didn't have much energy to do anything today. I raked wet leaves for an hour and half and after that read interior design magazines. Luckily I have an energetic husband, he went to Rauhala and got rid of the plastic carpets in the hall and living room. The wooden floorboards were in a rather good condition so some sanding and painting is required, but no need to change the boards.

This or that

I had to make a difficult decision today when I had to choose between Riikka Fransila's vintage art pieces. There were more than the two in the photo, but these two were the most interesting ones, I think. I bought the one with the mushrooms so if you are interested in the fishman, go and buy it at TRE Christmas market in Aleksanterinkatu, Helsinki.
