Kära hjärtanes....

nu har tiden avstannat här och vi bryr oss inte om så mycket annat just nu!
 Orsaken heter Tyra, en 13 veckor ragdoll som tillhör 
äldsta sonen med flickvän sedan en vecka.
 Mycket bus o spring i dom små benen......Kletus har god översikt på den lilla!
Vilar gör Tyra gärna i kökssoffan...det är svårt att låta henne vara ifred.
 Tänk att en så liten boll kan bli så lång
Nu njuter vi av ett par veckor till innan hon flyttar hem med sin husse o matte,
till den nyrenoverade lägenheten. Vi kör kattpsykologi på hög nivå, så Kletus
vill att lilla Tyra skall vara på dagis här. Än så länge går det bättre än vi hoppades på.

All that old silver

and all them old copper are becoming popular again!
I never could get rid of my hoarding....never wanted to!
Still my choice has been of the specific interest 
in shape, color and mostly origin.
I'm like a bloodhound where ever there's antique china and silver from Sweden and France.
Before deciding on a purchase I always try to make a good match with what already is!
I keep several different cupboards with glass fronts in the house,
they serve as mood boards with different kind of gems of
memories by heritage or auction sales.
 This shelf exposes a weakness of mine, with pleasure Ladurée.
The Christmas silvery embellishment is going down today, 
the hearts with the little bells have been a new but appreciated 
little sound this holiday every time this kitchen cupboard
has been opened.

❤  There's a whole life in here ❤

Time flies....

into 2013 and on and on and on.....❤
A year goes by so fast and so many things happen ❤
There are also changes in a life.....my dear father in law
 passed away and we had a beautiful memorial service 
at the beginning of June, when the spring was at full bloom.
His old family Mora clock, dated 1839 moved into our home 
and is now an important memory of GrandPa to our family. 
 The shape of these old clock cases are usually significative
 for different provinces in Sweden and very often the clock
 machinery was made separately by a fine artisan of watches.
 A trained eye can derive it's origin by the shape of the case.
You may also get some help from reading the signature
of the clock and the other one inside the case,
 hopefully the history tells us the rest.
Yes, we did start scraping off the white coat of paint to reach to the
 greyish/green layer of the original late Gustavian linseed oil with a razor
 blade. I soon realized it would take me an eternity which I don't have right 
now, so I rest that case until another time. Unfortunately many of these clocks 
have had white paint and some golden lines as it became à la mode in 1910.
What a big mistake!!

Happy 2013
