Pulpetti -

I once spotted a French Série noire edition of a novel by American hardboiled crime writer William Campbell Gault . As I don't speak French, I had no use for the book, but I noticed it had a photo of Gault in the back. So, here it is, with the actual cover. As the French book covers usually go, this is pretty bland.

Nasun nukkekoti / Nasu's Dollhouse -

Tein kirjakarusellin Maria Malmströmin ohjetta mukaillen. Hyllyn päällä oleva shakkilauta on turkulaisen nukkekoteilijan taidonnäyte. Takanreunukselle laitoin taulun. I made this book carousel using Maria Malmström's instruction in her book "Nukkekoti Väinölän tapaan". I altered it a little bit.  The chess board on the table is made by a lady from our Doll house group.   Muokkasin myös sohvapöytää paremmin huoneeseen sopivaksi. Alkuperäisestä käytin vain päällisen ja sekin...

Vasta painetut Kerällä -kirjani matkailivat kustannustoimittajani pöydälle perjantaina. Niistä löytyvät muun muassa nämä kuvat helppoine ohjeineen, joita on yhteensä 45 kipaletta. Vallan kelvollisesti tekemistä muutamaksi syksyiseksi ja talviseksi kuuksi, kun käsityöt maittavat aivan eri mallilla kuin keskikesän kuumilla. Kirjoitan lisää, kunhan pääsen selailemaan omaa kappalettani. Myyntikipaleet saapunevat Kerään loppuviikosta, toivon. Huh, pää lyö paraikaa tyhjää...

Book covers are one of my favorite forms of art.  In order to share my love for some bookish beauties out there I decided to put together "2018 Cover Love", a monthly feature in which I will share with you some of my favorite covers of that month's releases. Without further ado, here are my favorite covers of January 2018. If you want more information on the books the links will take you to Goodreads!

Yesterday I found from an antiquarian bookshop a biography of Herbert Spencer written by Otto Gaupp in 1911 (the language used in this Finnish translation from German is touchingly old-fashioned). The book (which I'm still reading) raises Spencer as one of the greatest philosophers who has ever been alive. And for good reason, as it was actually him, not Darwin, who should be considered the father of evolutionism. At his time Spencer was widely respected as a versatile genius, but today his...

Kesäpäivä II - Summer Day II Kun ei taidettaan museoon esille saa, se pitää salakuljettaa sinne itse! :D Aloitin pari päivää sitten järjestyksessään kahdeksannen Random Prints -projektini, joka tälläkin kertaa tapahtuu Suomessa. Kesäpäivä II -vedos on kuvallista jatkumoa viime vuoden erityisprojektille, joka toteutettiin geokätkentätyylisesti Porissa. Tänä vuonna taidekaupungiksi profiloitunut Mänttä sai kunnian olla ensimmäinen paikka, johon kirjeitä jäi...

When it comes to true crime books, podcasts and series, I am a HUGE fan. So much so that I often opt for tales of true crimes rather than listening to music as a bike around, spend my money on true crime books instead of novels and eagerly wait for new true crime series to make their premiere. A while ago I was asked to recommend my favorite true crime books on Twitter. While I did share some recommendations there, I got the idea of putting together a more comprehensive list of books, podcasts...

On Friday I participated on a flower arrangement show at the Spring Fair where we visitors got to see how professional florist makes flower bouquets. Perjantaina osallistuin Kevätmessuilla kukkien sidontanäytökseen, jossa me vierailijat pääsimme näkemään, kuinka kukka-asetelmat syntyvät ammatilaiselta. The show was held by talented Saija Sitolahti who made several gorgeous arrangements. She is such a lovely person that it's always nice to see her working. Näytöksen piti lahjakas...

Code Threen suomennoksessa Hätämerkissä käytettiin alkuperäistä kantta Palataan takaisin Pulpografiaan ja sen hakusanoihin. Tässä James M. Fox, melko mielenkiinnoton ja keskinkertainen kirjailija, josta luin tänään aiemmin mainiolta Vintage Paperback & Book Covers -Facebook-sivulta: Fox oli Chandlerin tuttu ja kirjeenvaihtoystävä, mutta Chandler piti tätä tylsimyksenä. Pulpografiassa ei ollut Foxille elinvuosia, mutta näköjään hän oli syntynyt 1901 tai 1902 ja kuollut...

I celebrated my book launch with sparkling wine and cake. And lots of dear friends. You can see a peek into the book in this post. My talented friend made an amazing cake (chocolate with raspberry mousse and Bailey's mascarpone fillings) decorated with items I have tutorials for in the book made from sugar paste. The box that was supposed to be filled with my books was mostly filled with baby books.. hmmm... Luckily the right books arrived after a phone call. It wasn't just pretty on the...

I've set this post to go out automatically on Christmas day, so as not to spoil the surprise (in the unlikely event that my nieces actually read this blog). Don't worry, I'm not sat at my computer right now! My nieces were thrilled with the broomsticks I made for them four years ago, and they are still avid Harry Potter fans. They are members of Pottermore, and have been sorted into their houses: Slytherin, and Ravenclaw. The eldest is just starting University, so I thought a Slytherin-themed...

This is an exercise in English. Everything you want, you can buy it from London. London has over 30,000 shops and over 300 street markets making London the capital of shopping, along Paris and New York. One day spent in London at shopping gives experience. Even if the prices are a bit higher, especially at CDs and clothing, you won’t have any problems in finding bargains. Besides, there are some periods of the year when the prices are lower, for example St. Valentine on the 14th of February...

I've read few self-help books in my life, mostly because I was bored and couldn't handle anymore the of classics. Then I have browsed a few, just so I could confirm how full of bullshit they are. I mean, look at some of the covers: The Science of Getting Rich, The Greatest Saleman in the World, 4-hour workweek... what the fuck?! Are people so stupid that they actually believe this bullshit? Mostly these books have the same content and only one who's getting rich by following them is the...

Our trees don’t look like this as we are further down. Look at those poor snow-covered trees, it is hard to picture that the trees are there under all that snow and ice. I have kept crocheting the second side of the cushion cover I showed you last time. I love this join as you go -method and the...
