Recently, J’s grandparents have been simplifying their home, starting with the things they no longer use or need. Yesterday, J’s mum delivered three boxes full with vintage goodies. We sorted through them on the floor, with me oo-ing and aah-ing and he, slightly less enthusiastic. As I said yesterday, I am lucky to be paired with such an extraordinarily tolerant beau, because some of these finds make my heart so glad. While he is not as sold as I am, here are my favourites:
a set of four dishes with sunny yellow on the outside,
This blue vase, which is bluer than it looks here and reminds me of fish,
and this bowl, which is made of swedish crystal and magnifies whatever it holds.
Isn’t it grand how old things take on new life in the eyes of another!
