Me and my mate Valentine

home alone after long wonderful weekend.
A house filled with dear friends and family, 
sharing meals, memories and future.
Today I'm up for final preparations having a plate of limestone
cut to protect the wooden floor in front of the tiled stove.
Precise measurements are done using some leftovers of an 
old plaster board. Makes it easy to readjust the round part for 
the tiled stove and have a perfect template made for the stonecutter.
Odd remains made of nature's own materials add significant elements into interior decoration.
Sometimes perhaps unexpected but also a great way of recuperating old building materials.
.
Flourishing lines of sandstone painted in mortar, aged cast iron,
 limestone from the nature's quarry in contrast with fine silk damask.

❤Valentine's Day❤

P.s. Our youngest tuned in (longhaul) on Skype for a dinner chat with everyone.
Most appreciated.....❤❤❤

Hej söta Ia! Vad länge sedan det var nu. Dagarna går och det känns som om tiden springer ifrån mig. Jag har tankarna på att ta en tur till Stockholm i vår men vi får väl se när jag får till det. Jag tänker på dig titt som tätt i alla fall och hoppas att vi ses snart!

Happy Valentines!

Kram Jenny
