Friday Bliss #98 - Women’s Week



It has been a normal Finnish summer week with sunny weather & rainy weather, strawberries, family gettogethers & many small joys. As to flower arrangements, I have thought for a long time to copy Eda’s beautiful & simple arrangements using three vases. Now at last I have these purple bottles! My arrangement looked very nice, bad lighting makes it uglier on the photos - but you can’t succeed every time :))



The past week has been in Finland the so called Women’s Week which means that every day the name day heroine is a female name. Name day celebrations used to be more important in the old days, nowadays they mostly go without notice. I’ll share the list of this week’s names so you can see which kind of female names we have:

18th  – Riikka
19th  – Sari, Saara, Sara, Sarita, Salli, Salla
20th  – Marketta, Maarit, Reetta, Reeta, Maaret, Margareeta
21th  – Johanna, Hanna, Jenni, Jenna, Jonna, Hannele, Hanne, Joanna
22th – Leena, Matleena, Leeni, Lenita
23th – Olga, Oili
24th – Kristiina, Tiina, Kirsti, Kirsi, Krista, Kiia, Tinja


My sister’s name is Leena, but she lives in Sweden, so could not celebrate with her... 
Contributed to a reading challenge with female theme & posted about these books by female writers.
It’s 100 years from Agatha Christie's debut The Mysterious Affair at Styles!
Only Rosa Clay is by a Finnish writer. You may know the other books -
Petina Gappah / Zimbabwe, Jill Mansell / UK and Rebecca Solnit & Tara Westover / The US.


One summer guest: 
Daughters cute Pauli who searched for shadow under the table while we had lunch.

Wishing summer joys to your weekend!
