A Parcel from my Russian Angel

A Gzhel porcelain icon called «Неупиваемая Чаша» (in English: "The Inexhaustible Cup").
This is Nika's gift to our little chapel. This icon type is rare in Finland and hard to find here.

Hello, my friends! Sorry for the long silence again. For the past couple of months, I've been busy, or just too tired or lazy when it comes to writing my blog... I've been very active in our local Orthodox Christian community. It takes most of my free time. I'm a chairman of The Support Association of the Seinäjoki Orthodox Chapel. Besides, I'm the editor of our Facebook site (please click here to see it), which means that all those updates are written by me. The site is available only in Finnish, but you can use the Google translator. :) Our little chapel is one year old now.

One week ago, I received a big parcel from my dear Russian angel Nika. The parcel was full of many lovely gifts, souvenirs and decorative items: a Gzhel porcelain icon called «Неупиваемая Чаша» (in English: "The Inexhaustible Cup"), a lot of Yuri Gagarin collectors stuff (Nika knows I'm a fan of Gagarin!), four bars of chocolate, a lollipops, a refrigerator magnets, Snegurochka (in English: The Snow Maiden) and some other Christmas stuff. Wow! Thank you very much, my angel! Once again, you made my day! I thank God for you. Большое спасибо, мой ангел! Я люблю тебя! (^—^)

Happy Spring to everyone! God bless you all, my friends!


 A lot of Yuri Gagarin stuff: notebooks, pin, badge, coin, stamps, refrigerator magnets,
and Gagarin figure. Cool!
