“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature – the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” – Rachel Carson, Silent Spring
“Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.” – Camille Pissarro
“Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.” – Robert H. Schuller
Finn Friday. Accessorizing my casual Friday jeans, t-shirt and cardigan with my Aarikka Niitty necklace.
Finnish brand Aarikka established in 1954 brings together Finnish and Scandinavian design with elements of wood and nature into beautiful drops of joy handcrafted in Finland. The drops of joy are key to their jewellery and home accessories. My necklace was purchased at their Flagship store in Helsinki at Pohjoisesplanadi 27. They also sell in other retailers across Finland and internationally as well as via their website to across the world.
Like many Finnish brands, Aarikka believes design’s most important task is to bring joy to people’s lives. The simplicity and beauty of this necklace does exactly that for me. Happy Friday!
Many people love being close to the water. Others love being close to the mountains. For me, it is being close to trees and nature. It soothes and nourishes my soul especially at sunset. Happy to discover this beautiful spot this evening and to be able to enjoy a quiet moment savouring one of life’s simple joys.
