Finnish blogger Hunajaista is hosting a killer giveaway on her blog together with Finnish Design Shop. The prize is Myy-lamp by Danish company Muuto, which mission is to bring new, fresh perspective into Nordic-design and elevate Nordic design back to the level it was before. I’m paraphrasing here but you get the idea, right? The lamp itself is inspired my favourite Moomin-character, Little My. I mean who doesn’t love her attitude?
I’m not sure if people outside of Finland are excluded or not from participating but it doesn’t say so in the post. It never hurts to try right? All you have to do is tell your favourite colour for the shades available for the lamp. You get also a second chance for sharing the giveaway on your blog (which is what I’m doing here). Click HERE to go the giveaway, it’s open till May 1st.
Thrifty Finn. Liking giveaways.
UPDATE!Hunajaista replied that international entries are a O.K! Yay! So what are you waiting for?
Last Saturday I went to a fashion/thrifting related event in Helsinki and on my way there I snapped some photos in Helsinki city centre…
Helsinki railway station
High above a shopping street
My favourite attic spaces…
Chapel of silence in Kamppi
Up the street…
Does anyone live there?

My February Giveaway is coming to a close (March will happen together with April) and noticed only few comments. Since I thought 25% chance of winning is too easy, I decided to share my Giveway in a few link parties just to mix things up:
SInce my battery charger is at my sister’s and I cannot upload my new craft pics, I thought about sharing something cute that was in the news today.
Finnish tabloid, Iltasanomat, shared this story about a prematurely born reindeer that had to be nursed back to health by the owners. The reindeer, Milla, is now an adult but “works” as a cuddle reindeer. How cute is that?
Since the newspaper wouldn’t share a link to the farm website, I did some interwebs research and found it HERE. The site is in finnish and in german. And here’s another cute reindeer pic for you to enjoy:
Now I have a problem. How can I justify eating reindeer meat after this story?
You know what I love. Lapland! My every visit to Lapland begins with…
Rovaniemi train station. I believe it was around 9 o’clock in the morning. Straight out of the sleeper train. Why do I visit Rovaniemi the every chance I get? Because there is:
Lovely nature. This little heart shaped tree stump is sitting in my uncle’s yard. Those red berries are lingonberries and when made into jam, is delicious with reindeer meat. Guess who is writing this text hungry?
My grandpa. Here with my youngest cousin Antti. During my other cousin’s Confirmation. Yes, there have been a lot of Confirmation parties in past few years in my family.
Grandma and cousin Jonna. Two of my favourite people. When I returned to Finland, Jonna said (after seeing my butt cleavage. I had gained weight) that “Oh my god what your a** looks like!” She was 5. And yes, those were her EXACT words. Gotta love the Lappish honesty.
And last but not least…Midnight in August in Simojärvi, Lapland:
Lapland is awesome.
