challenge

I got challenged by Minja to show my blogging scenery. Luckily I am in Helsinki, since at Tampere I`m currently forced to blog at the university computer centre (haven`t got internet access in my apartment there, yet), and there`s nothing exciting about that. Well, not that these photos are actually exciting...





This is where I blog right now. On the floor, because I moved my dinner table with me to Tampere, and haven`t gotten around asking friends to help me with getting an old table from the attic. Any volunteers?


And this is what I see if I look out the (extremely dirty, oh my) window. Even if my room in Tampere doesn`t have many perks, the view there is a lot nicer! Apple trees and maples instead of buildings and cars (though I think these buildings are quite nice, if you have to look at one).





I`ll pass the challenge on to Sandra and Kristy, if they`re interested to take part in it.


In the top photo you can see part of my new poster waiting to be hung on the wall above the table (after I get the table). It`s a reprint of a 1959 advertisement for Jaffa lemonade by a Finnish graphic designer, Erik Bruun. Here`s a site where you can see some of his posters and even buy some, if you`re in Finland (this site is in Finnish only), and see my Jaffa poster in whole (use the arrows). I`ve been hoping to find the right poster for my yellow wall a long time, and this is it. Too bad I`m not here every day to see it! I miss my yellow wall in Tampere.

By the way, I learned from Wikipedia that Bruun submitted a proposal for Euro notes which featured animals. It`s a pity we`re not using notes with animals now, isn`t it?

jostain kumman syystä nimekseni tuli tuossa yllä "perhe". Ei, olen kyllä isoinpapu, puhti-blogista. Hassua.

Mahtavia julisteita! Hui, nyt tuli kauhea himo tuollaiseen. Päitäisiköhän kirjoittaa joulupukille...
