Month of May, everybody’s in love

Here in Finland vappu, Walpurgis Night or May Day, whatever you may fancy to call it, is one of the biggest events of the year. This year we were blessed with a lovely, sunny spring day so Minna, me, seven of our lovely friends and a puppy named Poppy spent our May 1 enjoying a picnic of rather epic proportions at the Kaivopuisto park - the very first picnic of the year, I should add!

Our vappu was filled with oven fresh cinnamon buns, streamers, bubbles (in many meanings of the word) and a whole lot of love. It was basically the best and I cannot wait for plenty more this summer!


  1. How awesome that May Day is a big holiday for you guys! Very few people even stop to give it a passing thought over here in Canada any more, but I really wish we'd all take Finland's lead! You'd think a county (much like Finland) that has to slog through so many months of super cold winter weather would be eager to celebrate the return of spring with a big, festive holiday, but alas, such is not the case. I might just have to come celebrate one year with everyone there in Finland! :)

  4. Oi voi, rakastan blogiasi! Löysin sen vasta, mutta olen jo nyt ihastunut! Itsekin olen kova vintagefani, ja on ihana löytää oikea yhteisö samanlaisia ihmisiä. Olet henk.koht. inspiraatio minulle, haluaisin itsekin alkaa pukeutua kiinnostuksieni mukaan ja tämä blogi rohkaisee minua hyvinkin paljon!
    En ole vielä hevin pitkälle edennyt blogissasi, joten mietinkin. Oletko kuullut taiteilijasta nimeltä Nell Brinkley? Aivan ihastuttava 20-30-luvun sarjakuvataiteilija. Blogiasi luettuani Brinkley tuli mieleeni.

    Terveisiä fanilta.
