Pumpu-Untamo is ready for a Renaissance masked ball. Should I tell him I'm going to need that mask and crown of poppies and that he is most likely to stay in the sleeping quarters and keep watch for bad dreams like a good guardian of dreams? I kind of feel sorry for him, he looks so excited about the masquerade... #valpurintanssiaiset #valborghsball #masquerade #maskedball #historicalball #mysca #Drachenwald #AarnimetsÀ #renaissanceball #seikkailijalammas #guardianofdreams

There's a norppa on the rock. This little sweetie is all I needed to see to make my day better.

Channeling my inner seal when photoshooting. Note the pointed ankle of concentration. Would you trust your camera in the hands of this seal? 😅

Thanks @tiinatupuna for catching this brilliant moment.

Friday night with mum and Eugene the theatre glasses.

So far my favourite lunchtime ice cream at the Asian lunch buffet just across the street.

It seems I've got a little helper. I think I'll call her Lykky after my lucky fins. I've found it very difficult to return to my embroidered Renaissance cap project and it's been months since the last stitch. I got frustrated, thought there was something wrong with the poppy I was embroidering and that the whole thing was just plain ugly and that it would never be finished anyway. Well, it's certainly not going to be finished if I don't work on it. So, if Lykky can do it, I can do it, too. Just keep embroidering.

Fitting a robe à la française and deciding on the trims and decorations wore out this lady. Can't wait to see this Atelier @fredrika.sand dress finished and wear it to #nordensminerva in a month. The best part, of course, is to get to time travel with my chaperone and see my Swedish friends after such a long time!

After the Renaissance dance class.

Spring in Poukka, AarnimetsÀ. When waiting for Their Excellencies to arrive, this lady-in-waiting is going to swim! And, look, it's my new pet sheep, the great guardian of the dreams. It still needs a name, though.
