2 lovely old Swedish products for our antiques and curiosa shop the Cup and Saucer.

This week I bought some nice old things in Nora, including this tureen
made by Gustavsberg (not far from Stockholm) about 100 years ago,
isnot it lovely?!
And then you also can find here well made objects of tin,
like this beautiful decorated tankard made by Svenskt Tenn.

Cup and Saucer antiques and curiosa shop in Retro magazine!

I bought a Retro magazine this week, a nice Swedish magazine with a lot of information,
nostalgia and colour! And this one with 'sommarloppisar'  (secondhand's during the summer):
we are there too!!

The first homemade jam of the season a.o. for the breakfast table of our b&b guests.

As said, we started with the first our garden supplies,
so that became a rhubarb jam with a touch of ginger, nice and fresh!
Of course we use the jams ourselves, we give them away to family and friends,
there is always a homemade jam on the table for our bed and breakfast guests
of the Cup and Saucer and we also sell some in our shop.

Home made babouschka's for our antiques and curiosa shop the Cup and Saucer.

Well, I just made two of them in between. I first tried one for myself and
that one was nice. I always liked babouschka's, we have some wooden sets
in our house. This pattern I found in a French magazine.
But now I put the sewing machine away, more time for outdoors!
And for example making jams, I can already start with the rhubarb.

Several nice and interesting guests in our Bed and Breakfast the Cup and Saucer in Värmland.

Always pleasant to receive different guests! Now we have a guest who is looking
for precious stones, for instance: amethyst. He was on a hill to cut stone and
last night he sorted them. At home he cuts the stone to beautiful jewelry.
And then, when he has left on thursday, we 'll prepare the b&b rooms for our
'Ransätersstämman' guests. That's a lovely international folk music and -dance festival!
