chinese tea time



Idag har jag haft en lugn dag hemma. Jag drack kardemummaté ur den här koppen, med den klassiska dekoren Willow, tillverkad av Gustafsberg någon gång innan 1958. Mina morföräldrar hade två, och jag har fått ta över båda, som är i gott skick trots deras skörhet och ålder.

Since today is a national holiday, I've had a slow day at home. I used this cup, in the classic Willow pattern, made by Gustafsberg sometime before 1958, to drink some cardamom tea. The two cups my grandparents had are still in good condition, despite their age and fragility.

  4. hello hilda! i just found your blog and i totally fall for your photographies and your sense for beauty. no question i had to become a reader of you:) since you share so many of my interests such as (old) cameras, flea markets, tea, art printing, smoothies.... seeing your pictures also gives me incitement to use my old cameras more often.
    i hope you have a nice weekend
