Just some new items for the Cup and Saucer antiques and curiosa shop.

From an old Villeroy & Boch tea/coffee pot and an equally old bowl 'Fasan'
from Rörstrand, a Nittsjö vase to a wonderful 'Svenskt Tenn' bowl and
printed linen and cut glass.

Summer flowers at the Cup and Saucer.

Most of them are lovely again! I think they belong to rural summer life.
With this incredible warm and dry summer I have to water them each day
and sometimes more. We arenot allowed now to spray municipal water, but
fortunately we have an old swimming pool still full of rain and snow water!

The 'loppis' of the Cup and Saucer in Ransäter.

In Sweden the 'loppis' is very popular. Next to our antiques and
curiosa shop (a more beautiful 'loppis' you could say) we also have a 'loppis'.
There you'll find four tables with all kinds of things of 10, 20, 30 and 40
Swedish crownes. At the moment we also have a complete dining area there,
handpainted with a pattern from Dalarna. Books, magazines and some other
stuff. .. .. . . Don't forget to bring cash.

Our cycle guest is on the road nearly each day.

He made already some rounds of an average of 100 km.
Today he has a break and tomorrow he will go south via Kil.
Wonderful views:

Cyclists of the 'Klarälvbanan' on the campsite and in the b&b.

It happens more that people who cycle the 'Klarälvsbanan' and/or the
'Klarälvsleden' stay overnight here. The Cup and Saucer is situated at the
other side of the river, but you can cross it at Munkfors and Ransäter and
we are  just in between them.
This time they were two Norwenian couples, one with small children.
Nice and handy in those trolleys behind the bike!

Books in our antiques and curiosa shop.

That's also something we have at the Cup and Saucer: a certain collection of books,
in Swedish and Dutch, but even sometimes in English and German.
There are children's books, creative books and a part of novels, e.g. from Selma Lagerlöf.

Old and new postcards and things like that . .. .. at the Cup and Saucer.

We don't often pay attention to that, but we do sell them in our antiques and curiosa shop:
old and new postcards in all shapes and sizes. Nice to have a look at!
By the way, this season the shop will be open from June, but when you are passing by
and we are at home . . .. .. . . just during the day . .. .

Spring at the Cup and Saucer in Ransäter!

How wonderful to start spring again with flowers, even when
the rest is still bare! And what a magnificent weather!
