Lovely flowery at the Cup and Saucer in Värmland!

Between the clouds and rain the sun is shining and it's getting better!
The flowers and plants in pots and borders flourish in all kinds of colours;
it's good to stay in our b&b or campsite.

A wealth of lace and ribbon in our antiques and curiosa shop the Cup and Saucer.

Several weeks ago I bought a few bags with pieces of lace and ribbon.
I couldnot see much of what I bought and there is some scrap also,
but for a lover there is enough to enjoy. What to think of ribbon
with cups and saucers (never seen!)?! So, not everything is going
to the shop . . .. . . ...

Being a tourist ourselves for a day in the beautiful Värmland.

Yesterday we drove around via Sunnemo, Filipstad, Hagfors and back
through Sunnemo again. We enjoyed the pastoral landscape with lots of
wild flowers along the roads and in the fields. It was also nice to see the
remains of the old iron mines north of Filipstad, near Nordmark.
In Nordmark they have a lovely old wooden church too.

Swedish and Norwenian guests for the Accordion Festival and a Belgian artist . .. .

Very nice to have all kinds of guests around us in the b&b and on our campsite
of the Cup and Saucer in Ransäter and . .. . wonderful weather too!!!




When the Norwenian and Swedish guests were to the festival yesterday afternoon,
a Belgian gentleman came to me for a night on the campsite.
Later on, talking with him and his wife, he appeared to be an artist and
then I already got my first birthday present of my husband: a book of Paul de Roy
about Lapland with beautiful paintings and descriptions of his hand, very happy!
