Belated Birthday Present

My friends at Götan Maailma (the best shop in Helsinki) are too generous. I was admiring this little guy in their shop back in September, and now, here it is.

A mummified mouse. I can’t say this is something I’ve always wanted – but once I saw it, I knew it needed to come home with me.
Thank you thank you, Thomas!!

Foggy Morning in Helsinki

Woke up to an icy fog this morning. The Baltic was almost invisible but for the sound of fog-horns.
And the freezing moisture in the air had highlighted this forgotten spider web in my window with a tiny, lacy coat of ice.
