les vacances finlandais

I'm up north in Marimekko Land, staying with friends by a lake, and learning how Lappish bonnets are made (something I've always wanted to do, but also a practical necessity because it is freezing here!). There are saunas galore, trees as far as the eye can see, and Finnish pancakes every morning for breakfast (to get an idea of my surroundings, take a peek at the Ivana Helsinki lookbooks).

Hope you're enjoying the last days of summer and prepping for a gorgeous fall... I should be back and blogging at the end of August.

How incredible. Have a wonderful time.

Miss you, too!

Sounds like we're both having lovely, secluded vacations. Only instead of freezing temps, it's muggy and flooding here.

We'll have to get back to real correspondence in the fall.

For a few moments, my own dim memory dream of the North Country fused with the real events you describe and the confusion of the two realities, one in single the other in double quotes was delightful.
