Made from Cool

I love these Jack & Jones' advertisement videos. Christopher Walken is so cool and great and these videos are just AWESOME! These also remind me of my grandma who was a dressmaker and she had all the same sewing things that you can see on these clips.


Autumn review

It's been a few weeks since these photos happened, but so much has been going on (like that we've moved but that's a whole different blog post). But before that we went to check the autumn in Huruksela, my home village. And it was great again! Dad had cut the old independence spruce from the backyard, and then the small forest in front of Koivurinne had disappeared. We found two old stools and we took the paint off from them. And we picked so much mushrooms! I quite like the fall this way.

Landet Järna

I just found the most perfect flower shop I've ever seen! Landet Järna in Sweden is specialized in wild flowers and it follows the seasons with their collection of flowers. It also uses the locally grown flowers. I've been wanting something like this in Finland too. Maybe someday. Or maybe I should move to Sweden...

Corkigami chair

I really like this idea of a chair by Carlos Ortega Design: making 3D things of 2D materials. Makes me want to fold papers into things the whole day!

I love mathematics! Especially when it's visualized. Because it's actually visualized everywhere you look. Omg, I could talk about the beauty of mathematics for so long...

So I love these data visualizations by Cristian Ilies Vasile and Martin Krzywinski. These are Pi and other mathematical numbers. Gorgeous!



Ukki means grandfather in Finnish. And today I got something from my Ukki. He died a long time ago so this gift has kind of been waiting for me. When I was born, he opened a bank account with 1000 Finnish marks. And that was 28 years ago! The deal was this: when I turn 18 years old, I would have to buy jewel for myself so that I could remember my grandfather forever.

I turned 18 and then a bit more but I just couldn't buy just any jewel. I wanted it to be special and I wanted to figure out what's my style. So that I could wear the jewel every day. Then I had to get the money out of the account and luckily my dad found the original bank receipt and a note from my Ukki (a note that I haven't ever seen before).

And today is the day! About a month ago I went to a local jewelry designer, korus DESIGN, and he made me the most beautiful pendant that reminds me of my Ukki. The bigger stone is obsidian, which is basically naturally occurring volcanic glass, and the smaller is tourmaline. Now I have my Ukki with me all the time.
