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.

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

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

Terveiset Costa del Solilta!

Ahhhh, the shade of blue in that first photo is heavenly. beautiful images!


Rebecca / Sanctuary said...

Thank you so much, x

Rebecca / Sanctuary said...

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

Rebecca / Sanctuary said...

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!

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
