A postcard from Porvoo


I think my daughter and I drew the longer straw, 
as we jumped on the bus to Porvoo
leaving the boys behind to get on with the painting in the hallway.
Lunch, a browse through whichever little shops happened to be open on Ascension Day, 
coffee, basking in the sunshine
& goodies to take home.

  2. Todella kaunis tapetti tuossa yhdessa eteisessä, tuo harmaasävyinen!
    Porvoo on varmasti keväällä kauneimmillaan.

    1. Oli kyllä kaunista ja leppoisaa pikkukaupungin tunnelmaa
      - tuo tapetti on kyllä ihanaa, olisipa pitänyt muuten kysäistä mitä se mahtaa olla...

  3. Nostalgisia kuvia! Olen opiskellut aikoinaan Porvoossa - joka arkipäivä Helsingistä bussilla Porvooseen.

    Terveiset Costa del Solilta!

    1. Mieleenpainuvaa aikaa ihan varmasti!
      Olen monta kertaa leikitellyt ajatuksella Porvooseen muutosta,
      aikoinaan aika voimakkaastikin,
      vaan noihin työmatkoihinhan se silloin ainakin tyssäsi.
      Kaikkea hyvää sinne auringon alle!

    1. I really love the different soft pastels in these old wooden towns
      the interesting and even bold mixes thrown together
      that great some great layers.
      Hope you're having a lovely evening Cindy, x

It makes me happy
when you leave a trace

- whether it's a single word
or you scribble all over.
