What would you like to do?

A Finnish letter full of nice things we could do together if you came to visit me at my new home (big changes, moving once again!). We could eat out if you didn’t like my cooking. Just today I went to some second-hand shops where I’d like to take everyone who comes to see me. The shops didn’t fit into the letter (and it was too late anyway), I was busy writing about carrying mattresses from the attic and other relevant things.
I haven’t shown you all the matchbox letters I’ve made, but you can go see and comment on them on my Flickr. There’s a set for the matchbox letters and another one for the matchbox a day project (just in case you’re interested to see where all this began).
I’m leaving to visit my family tomorrow. Staying there for a little while, hopefully picking blueberries and avoiding further mosquitoe bites (on the verge of madness already!). The last time I was there I made dresses, maybe this time around I’ll have a skirt or two finished before it’s time to come back to Turku.
Thank you all for your reading suggestions, as soon as I’ve finished the book I’m reading now and knitting yet another scarf (first one here), I’ll go and search the library for your recommendations.


(This one is already sold. It’s one of my favourites.)

Thank you for all your lovely comments, for your visits, for the kind blog mentions, for you being there reading my words. The blog giveaway matchboxes will be soon in the making, the random number generator did the being random part of the draw as I’m home alone. Sima’s two comments I counted as one to be fair to everyone, so number three means David will be getting some mail sometime soon (honestly, I was moved to tears by his comment, that’s how girly-girl I am).

I made a weekend trip to the beautiful city of Rauma to see a friend and some pretty amazing burlesque, wandered around in the old town and took some very tourist-y photos of old doors and gates and street corners. The bus ride there and back reminded me of how much countryside we have here in Finland. So many bright yellow fields of rapeseed and the roadsides full of wild flowers and ferns. Love. (City life means a lot less allergies during the summer, so I’m happy to keep the fields at a safe distance most of the time.)

I feel like I could read some poetry I haven’t read before. I’m stuck with my Finnish poetry and could do with a change. Who’s your favourite writer, poet/novelist/author of whatever?
