Scandi Love is my ode to all things Scandi - fabric, furniture, kitchenware, Orla Kiely, Skinny Laminx, Sanna Annukka, Carolyn Gavin, Jane Foster. In Finnish pagan mythology it was believed that a bird brings the soul to a newborn baby, and that the same bird takes the soul with it when the person dies. This soul-carrying bird was called sielulintu, "soul-bird". (Thanks Wikipedia!).
