Happy New Year!

For the few days of Christmas, we got lucky. The snow came right on time, the day before Christmas Eve, and stayed for about a week. Perfect timing, for a perfect, relaxing, White Christmas. Now on the first day of the New Year of 2015, the refreshing whiteness is unfortunately nearly all gone.

White for a while

Apparently we had been behaving, as Santa was very kind to treat us with presents. There was a specific one, however, which caught us completely by surprise, and just needs to be brought forward here in the blog. For about a year, we have been collecting Arena tableware, and have been desperately short on tea cups and saucers. As the Arenas are no longer in production, they are not the easiest ones to find. But Minna's cousin Anu, who shares our interest on design, had picked up our need, and found two additional sets. Where - we have no idea, but what a wonderful, extremely pleasant surprise! Thank you so much!

We also want to wish you all very Happy New Year, and once again sincerely thank you for your keen and continuous interest. Our New Year's resolution in terms of the Olive Green is that the story will go on and develop: the ups and downs of renovation and restoration will of course continue, so there will be a lot to write about. Currently, we are also working with a story regarding to a recent interview with Osmo Lappo, the architect who has designed our apartment. Additionally, as mentioned before we will be exploring some new avenues in a form of a small business in the future. And last but not least, updates on the blog visuals are on the way - quite exciting!!

So, with the words of Michael Josephson: "Whether we want them or not, the New Year will bring new challenges; whether we seize them or not, the New Year will bring new opportunities." Both of these we foresee and gladly welcome, and hope you will be there to share those with us!
