I keep staring at this picture.
That could be me walking on the street there, just a few steps from home. Seriously. I have that hair. I am that height. I almost have that coat, just a little shorter. That shadow is cast by our building, our dear home, a house that’s turning a hundred years old this year. I’ve always wanted to step back in time about a hundred years, just to see what it was like. Maybe I have?
I came across this picture purely by chance at Flickr, from a set that features several photos from 1918 Helsinki. Someone’s private photos hidden away for decades until now. Boy, I love the internet!
And here’s a little bracelet in vintage inspired colours. Amethysts, amazonites, pearls, glass and silver.
