From the Saslik photo shoots...

This photo is taken by an amazing photographer Kerttu Malinen <3

Snow, red wine, art, books, flea markets, sunday...

View from Sakari's kitchen window.

Vintage cardigan, everything else is second hand. And no, i haven't cut my hair, it's a fake bob!

I found this work of art from Valtteri flea market. I paid only 10€ for it. It was not expensive, and i really like the picture. Just minutes after i've bought it a man walks up to me and asks if he can take a look at my find. It turned out that he's an art connoisseur. He said that the picture that i've just bought is worth at least 100€! Even though it's just a print. I just think that it's an alluring image. The frame is not that nice, but i can change it later...

This picture is a fine addition to my Virgin Mary collection.

Some old books...

Vintage heels. Like i don't have enough shoes..!

Happy New Year 1947!

I bought this 1946 Elokuva-Aitta movie magazine from flea market. This is the last issue from the year 1946, and there's pictures of movie stars with their autographs...

My favourite, Lauren Bacall! "All the best for a Happy New Year to my finnish friends."

Oh, Errol! "To the readers of 'Elokuva-Aitta'. A very Merry Christmas and a brighter new year."

Bix likes Elokuva-Aitta magazine too...
