Thank You Katrina in Finland

Aalto Vase:

One last thing before I leave.

A couple of weeks ago we received a little parcel from Finland.  There was great excitement as the Grandchildren waited for me to come home and open it. Of course once opened they were more interested in using the package to create their own mail, stamps etc and they had a wonderful afternoon playing sending and receiving mail from far off places.

The sweet Aalto vase is formed in resin by Jutta of Mrs Who's Crafts. I am sure it must a difficult process.

I quickly made some pink roses to display in it as my collection of orange roses did not look right.  Then anxious drama, I could not find the Aalto vase. I searched high and low and was convinced I had sent it back to Finland. I used the same bubble pack Katrina sent to me to enclose some small kitchen items I wanted her to have.

What a relief when I found the vase just where I thought I had left it! How I missed it I do not know!

Thank you Katrina for your kind thought in sending me this iconic-design vase from Finland!
