More light around


Last weeks have been, well, variable.
Moments of good, moments of... not so good.
Some days I have seen all our, or at least mine, 
future plans flown down the drain.
Some days have just passed by.

I had a chance to spend one week in Siuntio again.

And at the time I spent there,
I also had a chance to visit Lepopirtti.

Lepopirtti was built in 1917 and it was bought by Miina Sillanpää  in 1921
for 
holiday- and recreation place for women working as servant girls, 
as well for other women with scarce resources.

It is a beautiful place.
It has gone through reparations,
so it isn't in original shape.
But it has it's charm still.
 Old small rooms upstairs have removed,
and beautiful ceiling is wide open to see.

It is possible to rent the house for private events,
but I am not sure,
if it is possible to visit Miina Sillanpää's office.
I did. 
Some art on the walls - like painting of Lepopirtti in original color.
Her desk with beautiful writing instruments.
Peacefull place. And surrounding.
Beautiful views from windows.
 Those must be gorgeous in the summer.
