I have been away from my computer and my blogging for far too long.
Sometimes life takes over and it is not much you can do about it.
It has been holiday, travel, friends and family that has taken up my time.
Most of the time no or limited access to the Internet.
Lately it has also been frustrating computer problems.
New computer with "known problem" did not help.
We are now working towards a second new one!
Summer might be over but we can still enjoy some summer colours in flowers and beautiful fabrics.
A bunch of Alstroemeria in an elegant 1930's vase.
I love the sumptuous feminine curves of the vase and the handle.
The matt green glaze is very pretty and the brownish glaze on the edge of the handle is an interesting contrast.
The pin is missing on the old broach but it is still worth hanging on to.
It is just too beautiful to throw away.
The silver-plated tray is left tarnished on purpuse.
Polished it looks too shiny and too many reflections when you photograph it.
I found an old pressed glass container that used to hold sugar.
The green glass has a very distinctive 1930's geometric pattern.
A bit of string and a key is also always useful!
