Cafe Veranda

Monday morning at breakfast, Sia flashed me an image of a chair he wanted to own - it was Charles Eames "Eiffel" side chair. Given a choice between owning one or re-visiting the place where I first sat in one, I would choose to lunch again at Cafe Veranda at Finlandia Hall where we had stopped at one mid-morning after a walk along the lake.
Charles Eames "Eiffel side chair" hard to draw but easy on the eye (and the backside)

The light green wing chairs contrasts nicely with the black glazed wall tubes. Kahvi or coffee is 2.80 Euros; Levios is bread (I think)

I apologise for the gap of one month in my posts. I took that time off to finish projects at work and at home. And while many projects remain incomplete, I have made enough headway and have earned myself a respite from the rush. So I thought that it would be appropriate to show you one of the things that has been occupying my time. Sam and Sara's too, they have building sub soil drains with me, making a ramped walk into the building and getting the place ready for our Chinese New Year Lunch and Launch of this little shed in our garden.

so here it is - a work in progress.
