Something old Something new Something borrowed Something blue Little bits of Finland and anything Finnish around the world, in the past or in the present. If something borrowed is yours and you do not like it in this format, or think it's not properly credited let me know and I will change or delete it. You probably won't like or be interested in everything I put on this page, but hopefully you'll find a few things or learn something new about Finland.
