Yesterday I attended the annual Helsinki book fair, oh dear, it was crowded. But I managed to find a few treasures, some so expensive I only dared to look - not touch. For ex. a hundred years old flora. The images were A3 size, handcoloured and so so delicate. Each image would make a beautiful piece of antique art to any home.
I did purchaise a large newspaper volume from year 1903, size 62cm x 45cm x 10cm. And it only cost me 10€! I´ll show you pics later.
Later in the evening I saw HDC (Helsinki dance company) performance Hardcore humppa. Amazing performance. It was breathtaking.
Above is a lovely tray I purchaised from Littlebyrdvintage on Etsy. It´s a lovely little shop that my fellow aquarian (we share the exact same birthday!), dear sweet Rebekah at Little byrd vintage hosts. I have not yet manged to hang it on the wall (it lacks wallpaper - poor excuse I know!). So it hangs above our clothesrack;) The buttonmagnets were a gift from Rebekah, what a creative idea to make magnets out of vintage buttons!
This short dance performance, "l´Esprit du bleu", by Carolyn Carlson is also breathtaking, it´s beautiful sad nostalgic, ah, just so so so beautiful. The music is also beatiful. Enjoy!
