Hi mommy!

Today I visited in the Craft Museum of Finland.

Due to water damage, there were only small exhibitions of different things.
They all were very colourful and nice exhibitions! :)
Just look by yourself, mommy... I hope you can feel the atmosphere through these photos.

There's some Karelian national costumes.

And there's very old ski supplies.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-roWFFA02HWU/UAqDRhMCV_I/AAAAAAAAPM0/S7Uq33ty4Wk/s512/019.JPG

This one is so colourful art, isn't it?.
Do you think there's all the colours of the rainbow?
Well, they are different coloured coat hangers. It looks nice! :)

And what do you say about this, mom? Even more colourful!!!  B)

Hello!

I had very exiting adventure last night!
Kurnau had an idea. He told us that hostmom is a nurse in profession, and we might have a chance to visit her workplace. So, all we tiny sized toys climbed into hostmom's bag, and we waited... We were hiding in the bag. We would surprise hostmom in her workplace, hihii... ;)

Hostmom had a night shift, so our toys very important task to do was keep a company to her and helped her to stay awake hole night long.

In the hospital we met some new friends: mascots of the hostmom's workplace. We toys had so much fun together!

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-pEuSexiHcpo/UAqC-h944eI/AAAAAAAAPEc/qMQajbvwZK0/s640/026.jpg

This place was really exiting! There were lots of medicines in that room!!!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-VBxNAhpMoO0/UAqC--CpTWI/AAAAAAAAPEk/GPb8V0FeMkY/s640/027.jpg

We found a stethoscope, and we listened our sounds of hearts. It was fun!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-OVAwI5TeiZA/UAqDACy3d3I/AAAAAAAAPE4/Hp4olto9LAg/s640/028.jpg

Then we drove the hallways with a wheelchaire. :D

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-DVe4YVbPnUU/UAqDAHNWyII/AAAAAAAAPE0/JYkXCR2oSM4/s500/029.jpg

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-6QzPzedGi3Q/UBFxvmSfEVI/AAAAAAAAPZI/XCspDxC2Oj0/s640/IMG_8228.JPG

I visited in a place called "kirkkopuisto" (a church park).
There I saw this beautiful church just in the middle of the park
surrounded by green grass, trees and beautiful flowers.
The church has buildt in 1880, and the architecht was L. I. Linqvist.

She was a famous Finnish writer and social activist.

Hello mommy!

Today Kurnau wanted to show me something.
He said the place where we will go is great. He was so mysterious...  :thinking:
So, we went outside and started to walk.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-wC75jEmAESA/UBU8huK8akI/AAAAAAAAP-8/yocVdelcP8Y/s640/124.JPG

Kurnau said this place is called Harju. It's like a small hill just next to city center. And there's such a great and long stairs there.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-el0_WQdaaug/UBQ0T9Jhf4I/AAAAAAAAP00/5JRA5oFj3vo/s512/017.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-VzERZyvibmU/UBU8e80eiZI/AAAAAAAAP-M/Gr0mCSMy7FY/s512/030.JPG

We all climbed up these long stairs.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-acn1ljcGeZ4/UBQ0Vm6LCvI/AAAAAAAAP1I/xRm3qFcwiCk/s512/031.JPG

Up there is the building called Vesilinna.
I'm so exited, because Kurnau said we are going to up in this high tower to see great views!

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-4AuCh_3azDQ/UBU8esp1daI/AAAAAAAAP-I/OtFCiXj8Pqc/s512/036.JPG

There's the city center. And the lake in the picture is named Jyväsjärvi.
Look, the lake is so close to city center!!!
And by the way, did you know that there's about 188 000 lakes in total in Finland? Lots of lakes, isn't it? So cool!  B)

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-GCcbd_HozXM/UBU8fz8i_5I/AAAAAAAAP-c/pyY97fDkaLA/s640/055.JPG

There's the sport stadium of Harju.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-6_WmupaZFUo/UBU8eYIFU8I/AAAAAAAAP-E/a67_l5t3oYc/s640/045.JPG

And there's the view to the direction where hostmom is living.
She is living just next to the lake. :)

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-s3vFKFfVGUw/UBU8f7cdFjI/AAAAAAAAP-k/_X7y2qp0lxE/s640/065.JPG

On the downstairs of the building Vesilinna, there's the Natural History Museum (Keski-Suomen luontomuseo). We visited there.

There's hirvi (a moose). It's the biggest animal living in Finland.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-IvfQAe8pzvY/UBU8hI9kNiI/AAAAAAAAP-w/HmSH0XF-E84/s640/083.JPG

And there's joutsen (a swan). It's the national bird of Finland.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-zpJVG_MLCpM/UBU8fwjDeHI/AAAAAAAAP-g/ya7u9JO20KQ/s640/082.JPG

There were showing also some interesting informations about Finnish nature.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-NqwyJ6AhrtQ/UBU8hKJ5inI/AAAAAAAAP-0/LtDHCl_h2EA/s512/087.JPG

It was such a great place to visit! :)

Hello mom!

I enjoyed the sunshine today.  B)

I went to see the lake just next to hostmom's home. I think she is so lucky to live in this beautiful surroundings: lots of trees and a lake just next to her home.

It's so Finnish thing: there's so much forests and lakes in nature of Finland.

Korpilahti, Finland - 1st August 2012

By: mmm105

Hello!

I visited in a new place today: Korpilahti.
It's located very near of Jyväskylä.

I was there, because there was a postcrossing meeting, and it's one of hostmom's hobby.
I had such a great time in the meeting, and I met new ToyVoyagers there!
Another host (Fendi) was there, too, and offcourse with all her toys
and toy-guests (PieksiHH, Nils and Kitsune).

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-wSiYewstscM/UBvpNo6UdgI/AAAAAAAAQZA/Fw4ntMzSoq4/s553/004.JPG

We all toys have really fun time together! :D
When hostmom and other humans there wrote postcards,
we toys were eating their snacks, hih.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-YBw0M7GC-FE/UBrcTiWVrqI/AAAAAAAAQU4/5P4y0GLd7R8/s640/006.JPG

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-jKVr7nV5p0E/UBvpOqusQ4I/AAAAAAAAQZQ/g6O3P1jwABc/s512/008.JPG

After eating we got thirsty, so we made coffee.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-CEROJtRvKxg/UBvqEqFyP7I/AAAAAAAAQeQ/1fD-cif_ZAA/s640/012.JPG

And then we played hide and seek! But it didn't go so well,
because the most of us was hiding under the glass.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-sTyxb6JsZoQ/UBvqMXTuBQI/AAAAAAAAQek/3ISyBNTMR64/s640/016.JPG

After eating and playing I wrote a postcard. :)

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-42tstLovp-4/UBvqe3kpf5I/AAAAAAAAQgY/N-MT8cQpmC8/s567/021.JPG

Here are only some of the postcards what postcrossers wrote.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-AYAtFAjwv50/UBvpZXxYtYI/AAAAAAAAQao/bwm9hT7uJv0/s547/030.JPG

And here we toys are helping to mail those postcards. :)

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-Mbbgx1XMnp8/UBvqfVTt2xI/AAAAAAAAQe4/g0PH7oNZGrs/s640/032.JPG

It was really fun to join in the meeting!  B)

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-fHxz7F6HcgE/UBvpl929RII/AAAAAAAAQcA/GBuLXj4yPC8/s512/061.JPG
