Last week I was on a holiday in Finland... of course I chose the date on purpose so I could attend the annual glass market held around the Finnish Glass Museum (Suomen Lasimuseo) in Riihimäki.
I had already gotten the red and green vases years ago (in fact the red one was one of the first Nanny Still items I ever got and the green one I got like... maybe 10 years ago, so getting the blue one in the size missing in my collection had been one of my fantasies for years! The night before the market I dreamt I found the blue vase, but I wasn't really sure about the colour... so most of the dream was some kind of continuus questioning "is it blue? is it green?"... well, you all know how dreams are.
So... on Saturday morning we take the train to Riihimäki, walk the 2 km. and a bit to the museum and start enjoying the market... when we've seen about half of the stands... there it is: the medium sized blue Pajazzo! and the stand was surrounded by trees and the leaves and the grass were really green... so the light had an amazing touch of green about it and I really cannot tell wich colour the vase is... the seller had a couple of Pajazzo vases in green so I knew this one had to be the blue one, but suddenly I question myself... "is it blue? is it green?" just like in my dream!!! It wasn't cheap but of course I coudn't leave it there... I really really HAD to get it!
We got other items... all of them amazing, but this one is THE special find from the Riihimäki market!
Last pic... that's sort of 85% of my nanny items ;)
