What the mail brought.

Last week the mail brought...
Another purchase from Asta Sukiene's fantastic sea glass art!
Photographed of course on Paula's stones.(otchipotchi)
I had bought two other necklaces but couldn't really resist one in my favourite colour combination aqua and purple.
....A crocheted lampshade from Illaria aka Ida in the Netherlands.I just found Illaria through etsy recently but she is so very sweet and talented.Ida Interior Lifestyle is her shop on etsy and she also has a great blog.
Great wrapping paper and attention to detail from Ida.

 Before....my IKEA bedroom lamp.
 And after.....with Illaria's crocheted lampshade.


and ....A great Finn zine for the protection of the Baltic Sea.Named Our Little Sea  which I found through this blog
Ever since I visited Finland I love everything about this country.

 One of the illustrations by Minna Makipaa.
One euro from each zine sold goes to the preservation of the Baltic Sea
