Mrs. Teacup goes to Finland: Update

Hello! OMG! I have been so busy! I can’t believe how many things I’m selling in my little vintage shoppe on Etsy!  The people at the Post Office are becoming my new friends! I am also completely stunned at all the boxes I’m shipping to Australia! Thank you my fellow Aussies! I love you.

Okay, so I wanted to update you on Mrs. Teacup. A while ago, I posted about my first sale to Finland – a delicate little teacup.

Well, she arrived safe and sound and her new owner (Nina) was sweet enough to send me photos of her new home…and some lovely shots from around town too!

This first one is from the town of Porvoo – a beautiful, quaint village where many people vacation during the summer. Nina was here, relaxing with her family, before heading home to Helsinki to pick up her tea cup from the post office. Doesn’t it look charming? I couldn’t help myself…I researched Porvoo and found some more gorgeous pics…look how pretty!

I gotta add Porvoo to my list of places to visit…

Welcome to Nina’s home – Helsinki. She lives in a part of the city called, Vallila.

Nina describes Vallila as laid back community with an intimate, village atmosphere. With fresh fruit growing in community gardens and beloved cats meandering the quiet streets, she says it has been a wonderful place to raise her daughter. It has a hip side to it too, with many Finnish designers in residence. A brisk, 30 minute walk will bring you to the heart of Helsinki, full of culture, restaurants and plenty of activity. Vallila is also famous for its historical wooden houses (see above) which were almost destroyed in World War II. Thankfully, they have been preserved and are treasured by the locals. Nina lives in a lovely old home that was built in 1925. Let’s have a peek into her study where her new (old) teacup has found its spot.

Awww…she looks perfect on Nina’s desk. It’s so wonderful to see a once discarded object be reborn as a loved and well used possession.

Thank you Nina for sharing theses beautiful images from your home and thank you for purchasing this teacup – it was clearly meant to be yours.
