Weekly Macro: Letters, words

Once upon a time... where the story begins.

Weekly Macro's topic is kirjain, sana / letter, word. My handwriting looked like this in second grade at elementary school, more than 30 years ago. I really loved story-writing.

Weekly Macro: Ball

Weekly Macro's topic is simply and inspiringly pallo, a ball. This is not exactly a ball but a shuttlecock (sulkapallo in Finnish). The base is round, though.

This beautiful piece of furniture came from my grandparents' house which was later my uncle's home. The house and the farm is still - and luckily so - going to be the family property. It's been that since my great-great-great-grandparents.

The cupboard's history continues now in our place. I'm not going to restore it as I want to see the marks of life it holds. It just needs some cleaning and to be hung on the wall. The colour is light green but here's some "rusty" pictures...
