walking in punavuori, helsinki




in the window of Ivana Helsinki store



probably the cutest jopo bicycle ever - the girl riding it looked really sweet and cool, too




I love old-fashioned neon lights









paper snowflakes in the windows of a school



okay, this is not from Punavuori, but I liked the pattern in a construction site wall (the building behind it is the museum of contemporary art)


My hairdresser's in Punavuori, and whenever I have time after getting my hair cut, I like to take a stroll there. Always something nice to see. I almost could imagine living there one day.
This time I visited Pulu (meaning 'pigeon'), a newish art and design shop. I was warmly welcomed by the sweet creature on the right (she's featured as the employee of the month on their website, by the way!) and chatted with one of the owners - she was really nice too. The website is in Finnish only, but if you click on 'tuotteet' you'll be able to see some things they have in the shop. I bought a badge for myself, and a monkey bib for a certain little monkey. Finns not living in Helsinki, you can order the products by e-mail too!

Hauskoihin asioihin oli törmännyt kävelyllä!
Missä nuo vihaiset kissat olivat?
Alan tulla siihen tulokseen, että minun pitää saada Onnipyörä/Jopo, vaikka se olisikin epäkäytännöllinen....

A, voithan ostaa toisen, käytännöllisemmän pyörän. ;) Kissat asuvat Nosturissa, jos en ihan erehdy. Kuva on otettu sen Moko marketin kulmalta.

lots of love for these photos! love the top one, all the reflections, and the dance of colors. and all the grafitti, too! that white dog sleeping in the window in bottom corner... he seems to be missing out on a walk through the world you just walked! thanks.

Kiitokset Punavuori-kävelystä, inspiroivia kuvia!

fine little day said...

The pattern and the signs are great!

Thank you, all! Since I don't walk around Punavuori that often (it's on other side of the city centre) I often feel like a tourist there - in a good way; I'm keen to notice things around me and snap photos.
