Jaja, jeg var jo ute en tur for å kjøpe møbelbånd - jamen kom jeg ikke tilfeldigvis til å kjøre en omvei så jeg fikk luktet litt på noen bruktbutikker også..... Litt smått og godt og hvitt ble det jo! Dagen ble jo ikke mindre bra av den grunn!
Valentine’s Day- when was this celebration introduced in Norway? I can’t remember that this day even existed here just a few years back…. Honestly – I am not very fond of all these new days we all HAVE to celebrate. These days have a tradition in other countries but have been introduced here later – and they are often not rooted in any of our traditions. The gift shops of course can have some extra sale! I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, Mothers Day – or Halloween I’m afraid. I know a lot of women walking around with bad feelings because their husbands forgot one of these “very important” celebrations. Why not pay a little more attention the rest of the time – sit down and talk, use all the short moments we have to show that we care for each other.
My Valentine’s Day was perfect! I have spent it here at home, doing the small projects I have started. The chair I showed some time ago has been painted white and yesterday I managed to do the upholstery. I went for a little shopping, bought the ribbons I needed to finish and cover the nails. At the same time I accidentally came to a detour – and managed to stop by some second hand shops. As you can see I found some bits and pieces – mostly white porcelain.
Later in the evening I mad a nice meal for us and painted some more of the old furniture I have been buying lately. To finish the evening we watched Heartbeat on TV – I just love watching these TV series and I never miss it!
That was for me a perfect Valentine’s Day!
