Secondhand scoops


Autumn. Time for fleamarkets. Treasure hunting!

This weekend I went to a local one. So many people. So much stuff! (lots of good homemade cake!! ) But I did mangage to find a few treasures. This old camping table caught my eye, standing folded up against the wall. That sweet green pattern. I totally started thinking of our family camping during my childhood. But this table must be much older.

The cups are from the swedish brand Rörstrand.
The series “Blå Eld” (Blue fire) was produced from 1950-1971, designed by Herttha Bengtson. That pattern inspired by a rope. The series contains of white and blue pieces. (The color red showed up in 1957) Bought 6 of these for 50 NOK! A scoop!

The ceramic pot is a earlier thrifted finding.

Are you finding any secondhand treasures this fall?

Birthday table setting


Setting the table for my birthday dinner today.

Having a few friends over. I do love birthdays!

The tablesetting is so easy. Roses in different pinks and peach, put in glass vases, glasses and bowls.  A white tablecloth. White dishes. Keep it simple.

It`s good to get older. Wiser. Understand things I haven`t understood.

Feeling grateful today too. For life, friends & family, good heatlh. Having clothes to wear, food to eat. For peace in the streets. A roof over my head. And for finding joy in the simplest things!

Happy birthday to me!

And a lovely evening to you!

From Rosendal with love,

Thrifted & treasured// Windowsill vignette


Texture. An element that makes personality. I am into natural & rustic materials. Constantly finding new treasures to add to my collection.

This bamboo coaster used to be in my fathers cabin upstate New York. I can remember it from a really young age. The beautiful butterfly.

A coaster. But I have never placed a cup on it. I didn`t want to hide those pearl colored wings. I still don`t!

The brown vase was bought the other day in a cafeshop in Rosendal Lille Tordivel. A small but charming cafe full of retro and nostalgia. Almost everything is for sale. The interior gives you the feeling of visiting your grandma. They have drinks & food there too. Not to mention their milkshakes!

The ceramic candleholder is from Fretex.

Favorites. All of them. Put together in my windowsill. A rustic vignette.

Keep it simple.
