Tuulimyllyjä Fiskarsista - Windmills from Fiskars


















Fiskarsin antiikkipäiviltä tarttui mukaan nämä minikokoiset matkamuistotuulimyllyt. Vasemmanpuoleisen pohjassa lukee 'Delft Made in Holland' ja numero 5049. Nämä tuskin ovat antiikkia. Tarkoitus onkin käyttää nämä johonkin tulevaisuuden miniprojektiin. Inspistä odotellessa!

I found these two cute miniature windmills at the Fiskars Antique Fair. The definition of antique often refers to objects that are at least 100 years old; I'm sure these are Dutch souvenirs and not very old ones although it says 'Delft Made in Holland 5049' at the bottom of the left one. Anyway, my intention is to use them in my future miniature projects. And I'm waiting for inspiration!

Joulukalenteriswappi - Christmas calendar swap

Olenko tullut hulluksi? No en! Sain valmiiksi kerrankin ajoissa kerhon joulukalenteriswappitavarat. Paketoin ne, minkä jälkeen huomasin, etten ollutkaan ottanut yhtään kuvaa tuotoksistani. Ei voi mitään. Tällä mennään!

Have I gone mad? No, I haven't. For once I finished the items for our club's Christmas calendar swap well on time. I duly wrapped each item and placed them in a bag. After finishing my wrapping, I realized I hadn't taken any pictures of them! Oh well.

Kesälukemista - A summer read

















The Finnish dolls' house association (est. in 1991) publishes a doll's house magazine for all its members five times a year. The magazine is called just simply The Doll's House.

The magazine comes in A4-size and it usually has around 50 pages of stories with photos, instructions, ideas, events both local ones and those abroad, courses, and also some ads from Finnish doll's house shops. The magazine relies heavily on its members to send in stories with photos that are then compiled entirely by the voluntary editor-in-chief and currently we also have a voluntary layout designer. Also I used to work with the magazine six years ago;  I was both the editor-in-chief and the layout designer.

There are 1200 copies printed of each issue as there are around 1000 members in the doll's house association.

Anyway, it was nice to get this issue #3 of this year before the summer holidays
