I’m sure you know what I mean.
The lovely colourful autumn is over, and the winter is not yet to be seen. Grey, dull, wet and windy weather, everything seems to be pointless, you eat vitamin D by kilos and spend hours in front of a power light every week…
And then you find that last orange twig on a bush.
Or the unreal colour combination on a summer cabin.
Or this semi-abandoned post-season spot.
Or any other random detail.
And life is suddenly more bearable.
… now bring on the snow, fairy lights, mulled wine and glass baubles, please. Save us from the misery.
(I think I just came up with the best IKEA ad!)
You know… you know when you keep passing THAT PLACE every week and every time you tell yourself that one day you would like to explore the place? Yesterday was the day.
Sadly, the beautiful Sinebrychoff Mansion in Espoo (I know right) was not taking advantage of its prime location ON the busiest road in Finland, I could literally feel the cars driving over you.The building was beautiful (especially the abandoned part nearby), so was the little rose garden (with a little gazebo should anybody feel like getting married on Länsiväylä), and I’m sure the exposition in the art museum was as well – all to no avail as the location-location-location is so bad. Poor villa. It did not deserve the road to be built so close to it.
… which never really reached Helsinki. Instead we got a beautiful, sunny, clear autumn day.
Getting ready for winter…
