Sunlit entry

The chair was a present from my brother-in-law. It belonged to his grandparents and I painted it white.

These are a present from my dear friend Maja. It belonged to an aunt of her husband Mättu.
 Maja said to me that I should use the cups and jugs when drinking coffee. 
But when doing so I am always afraid to break them...

The atmosphere of our entry yesterday morning when I woke up and the sun shone through the windows. 
It all had the air of lightness, freshness and the promise of a good, sunny and blissful day.

And so it was.

  1. Is'nt it just so wonderful to wake up with the sun beaming through the window.
    Lovely photos Christa.. I love your floors.. you have given a new life to the chair from your law.
    wish you a wonderful weekend. you Paul and the boys.

  2. Ciao, Christa! I love your lobby! It's roomy, light and... those b/w tiles are to die for! Fantastic!

    I have a lot of white and blue china, which used to live in my bedroom. I have just removed it, as I'm a bit tired of looking at it, but it is lovely and it looks beautiful on a table. I have so many bits and pieces!

    Between my husband and myself, we have a museum. I would love to take some of our stuff to Italy, if we are lucky enough to be able to do that...



  3. Seeing the first rays of sunlight in the morning is a great way to start the day. I love the feel of you hall and those coffee cups.

  4. Hello Christa

    I did a double take when I saw your Tea Set. It is Copenhagen? I have a 4 pce tea set, with tea pot and cream and sugar which my late father brought me when he visited Denmark. I use it for tea with guests.

    I love how you casually display yours on the heirloom chair.

    Have a glorious weekend
