The above is what our house looked like in 1950... and this is what it looks like today:
Not bad, right? There is a saying in Finnish which goes along the lines of "many cakes are pretty on the outside", and it means that you can´t really trust things just on the basis of their appearance. Sadly the saying holds true when it comes to our house. As pretty as the house looks, the interior is rough. It needs a lot of work. A LOT. But hey, we have apple trees and sort of a lake view!
And we have an adorable, old barn, too.
As you might imagine, things are a little hectic at the moment. I hope to return to regular blogging soon!
