Maintenance of house and garden.

We work hard these days to keep the Cup and Saucer goodlooking.
The facade is done by Derk the carpenter and we are glad he did a good job up there!

Purchasing in a sunny and pleasant Spa!

For our antiques and curiosa shop the Cup and Saucer, I'm buying in Sweden and the Netherlands, but also in other countries when we are there. A few weeks ago we were at the weekly flea market in Spa, which was quite big this time. It's also nicely located and then with the wonderful weather: lovely to snoop around and of course buy some pretty things.

Today the Antiques Market in Ransäter starts, 12 and 13 of august!

Hopefully the weather is as good as last year.
Look at the pictures, it was very nice!
Have a stop at the Cup and Saucer also (just 3 km from Ransäter's Hembygdsgård) for some nice antiques or a cup of coffee with some homemade cake.

Tourist trip to Karlstad.

We had some appointments in Karlstad and we had guests, so we combined things.
The weather was lovely and we discovered again in what a wonderful area we are living
here in Värmland. We even saw three moose! A perfect day!

Hilleberg's tent and Cumulus' sleeping bag were tried and tested.

Joeri and Anita stayed in our b&b: the roseroom and the retro cabin.
And they also tried their new tent, with which they are on hiking tour now, on our campsite.
So, staying at the Cup and Saucer was tested too and they were satisfied!

Sporty and adventurous Dutch in our b&b the Cup and Saucer in Sweden!

Well, last summer Herman was staying at our campsite, coming back from North Cape by bike.
Yesterday afternoon there came a couple by bike, looking for a cup of coffee on their way to North Cape.
Our shop/cafe is closed on sunday, but Frans and Gonnie van Seumeren decided to stay over a night in our cabin and of course: they got their coffee too.
They were two weeks on the road now and the biggest part is still coming, but, for people who already cycled to St Petersburg and walked to Athens; they will meet this challenge too!

Bo Englund and friend at the breakfast table of the Cup and Saucer.

Very nice we had you as guests in our b&b!
Bo Englund was born in 1929 in Munkfors and he was a journalist,
but in 1967 he became a sculptor and he makes wonderful pieces in different materials.
And, we heard that in bed last night, you are also a good singer . .. . .. . ..!

Making new retro curtains for the cabin of our b&b the Cup and Saucer in Värmland.

The cabin was 50/60's style and now it'll be 60/70's!
I'm busy sewing the curtains now of original materials and it looks colourful and cosy.
When it's getting a bit warmer we'll paint the walls.
Very curious about the result!!

Time for the Swedish Rally!!!

But how will it look like . . .. . . no snow left here in Ransäter . . .. . .
Hopefully it's better to the north. The pictures are from previous years.
Anyhow, a warm welcome to our bed and breakfast the Cup and Saucer for our Belgian guests!!!
