Things that matters..


That I love old things is no secret for anyone. Today I want to show you my bedroom. I love it because it’s so fresh and bright and is decorated with things that I like and which have a great value to me. 

Like the blanket on the bed for instant. My great, grandmother has made it for me years ago. She was always busy with her crochet needle and she actually wanted to give me this piece of art for my wedding. 

But she was old and I wasn’t very fast with finding a partner, so she gave it to me much earlier. 

She was a wonderful woman and I loved her very much. She was so strong in mind and hart and lived 103 years. How amazing is that? 

The blanket is one of the things I have to look at every day to remind me of a very special great grandmother.

  2. Nydelig historie...

    Min farmor var meget lik din i sinn og kropp tror jeg.
    Sterk og rettferdig. Jeg fikk også et slikt vakkert teppe av henne.
    Fine, gode minner å ha med seg i hverdagen etter de man var så glad i.

    1. Hej Siw,
      Ja nogle ting betyder bare så meget for en, når man ikke har dem man elsker mere.

    1. Hej Kathrine, Tapetet kommmer herfra (http://www.vintagewallpapers.be/)
      En webshop i Belgien. Jeg er blevet rigtig glad for det. Det er ikke altid nemt at finde et man vil se på i lang tid syntes jeg.

  5. Wat een mooie gehaakte deken. Ja, die dames van toen konden nog eens haken en ook zo heel fijn. Mijn oma was ook altijd aan het haken of aan het borduren en zij is ook 103 geworden! Blijkbaar word je er heel oud mee!
