So I got home from my shift at the brewery and a MARIMEKKO envelope was sitting on the floor of the mudroom.
Do I even need to catalog the usual assortment of mail that greets my return? Suffice to say that if it isn't a bill, it's a past due bill, and if it isn't a catalog for stuff that I can't afford and don't need, it's a catalog of stuff I really can't afford and really don't need.
The marimekko blue floral envelope was so damn cute and unexpected that I almost didn't need to open it --
But when I did....
How fricken cute are these?
My bbfl Megan is in Turku Finland with her family, and according to her, these pursi are what all the fashionable and chilly women are carrying in the land where Rudolph is what's for dinner.
Here's what the note said:
These are all the rage here in Turku. Everyone uses them. The long one is a pencil case and the larger one is used as a wallet or a purse. And the Finnish word is, naturally, pursi.
Irritatingly, Megan's travel blog Cold, Colder, Coldest is well written and very engaging.
