I saw many pretty things in and near Turku Finland this summer
I want to comment on this one. The photo was taken at a lace museum in Rauma, about an hour north of Turku. For hundreds of years the city has been known for its fine lace-making. An interesting bonus is the woman who cuts my hair here in Oregon is from Rauma. Her mother was visiting Oregon from Rauma recently, and we talked about my visit to Rauma (with her daughter translating). Next time I go to Rauma, she's going to give me the VIP tour!
