& the image below by Debra McClinton

 and other stunning photography 

celebrating 25 years of the Erika Tanov label

(click on through for an overdose of loveliness).





















Wishing you a bit of beauty for the weekend!

WHISPER
















Words from a magazine I was reading on the train

got stuck in my mind:

"Nowadays, in order to stand out,

you need to whisper."

I think it's true,

so much more enticing 

are the words left unsaid,

that which isn't shown,

the part of the picture that is cropped out,

that which is sighed quietly in between the lines.

Tickles the imagination. 








Junassa lukemastanani lehdestä jäi kytemään kommentti:

"Jos nykyään haluaa erottua, pitää kuiskata." 

Onhan paljon kiehtovampaa se, 

mitä ei sanota ääneen,

mitä ei näytetä,

mikä rajautuu kuvan ulkopuolelle,

huokaistaan hiljaa rivien välistä. 

Kutkuttaa mielikuvitusta.

SUNDAY SILENCE






























A homecoming from my study trip.

Ahead lies the promise in my calendar

of two weeks of uninterrupted time

to focus on images 

& wrapping up final work

for my course.



















Sunday silence. 



















P.S 

Hit fullscreen mode on the gem of a video,

it's adorable...

VISITE PRIVÉE







































continues to satiate my never-ending love affair

with Parisian apartments...

SPRING SENTIMENTS























Not quite ready to part with

 a pair of rugged boots when going outside

& grey woollen socks to truly feel "I'm home",











but also mad about 

anemones

& spring skies.



[ And a bit of fancy stationery

& Ásgeir's husky voice,

especially when he chants in Icelandic.]












And the way the sun chooses to dapple

a corner here, another one there,

lingering later and later with each passing day,

beckoning from the shadows.

FRIDAY RITUALS





























Today my Friday has been as in theory my Fridays should be

- a walk to the neigbouring block 

for a session of morning pilates,

a fresh croissant from the lovely local shop

with its black-and-white chequered floor,

back home to brew some coffee on the stove,

quietly beginning my work

in a peaceful house.

Nothing extraordinary I guess,

but it sure is good to land

in a quiet place every now and then. 

From now on,

I'll need to keep a firmer grip of these. 





P.S. 

Glimpsed in the last photo,

coffee time 

poring over the bread book

by local patisseries Teemu & Markus,

photographed by talented Anton Sucksdorff.

Tänään pitkästä aikaa sellainen perjantai

kuin olen perjantaipäivistäni teoriassa kaavaillut

- aamupilates korttelin päässä,

tuore voisarvi mustaruutulattiaisesta lähikaupasta,

kotona kahvi tulelle

ja rauhaisan keskittyneesti töiden ääreen

hiljaisessa kodissa. 

Ei mitään sen ihmeempää kai,

mutta juuri tällaista sielu välillä kaipaa. 

Jatkossa varjelen näitä hyppysissäni.





P.S. Alimmassa on kahvilukemisena

Teemun ja Markuksen leipäkirja,

jonka hienot kuvat ovat taitavan 

Anton Sucksdorffin kädenjälkeä.
