i brought home a few things (ask D and he'll say a lot of things) from denmark. i always do. the cute little antler i found on a flea market. same goes for those four, tall, dark green candle light holders on the white shelf. it was on this beautiful summer morning bike ride through copenhagen, just me on my own. and i found all of these at the same place, this cute old couple selling out from their summerhouse decor. there were treasures among those things.
then there's the two potholders. my grandma used to do these all the time, and my mom has a lot. she's really not good at throwing things out, which can sometimes drive me crazy (even though it's really not my business, i know). but it allows me to dig out little treasures like these from her "stash of things". thank you, mom. she's also the woman behind that biology poster on the inside of a chicken and how an egg is made. i know it's kind of bizarre, but when i found it in my parents shed, we had just been talking about - and realizing we really didn't know exactly - how an egg was created. and fertilized for that matter. and then this popped up. so i had to bring it with me. and just two days later it was used as an illustration in a danish newspaper in an article on an exhibition about old school biology posters. which i love and have a few of. but the others are prettier with flowers or butterflies. but pretty is not necessarily the best, right?
oh, and then there's the chair. i found it a few weeks back in tel aviv. it was standing in the street, so i picked it up and brought it with me on a coffee date with a good friend. and i'm very happy about it, as is always the case with the things i find in the street. it just adds something extra to them, that they came my way by chance.
i am planning to make more posts of the theme "what i brought home", so i hope you enjoyed it. and thank you so much for your sweet comments to my previous post. i am in a better mood now.
