... at what I found!
So like I said, my paternal grandparents are moving out of their farm. It feels weird, I grew up playing in that yard, with their gadzillion dogs. They bred Rottweilers and later on, Cairn Terriers. I never thought I would want to take over that farm, it wasn't "me"... however I am seeing it a new light, with different eyes, now that it stands empty like a shell. Goodness knows it would take a crapload of work and money to get it to what I want... but it would be a beautiful place for keeping horses! Really... I just hope the new owner spruce the old place up! And I hope someday I can go up there, just to have a look...
Me and my grandparents fell out years and years ago, but in the process of their move into the new apartment, we somehow found eachother again. I guess everything has a purpose.
It's been hard for everyone involved, this sell. Dad seeing his chilhood home being flogged, my grandparents leaving their home of more than 50 years.... I completely understand. And downsizing from a large farm to a tiny apartment... NOT easy!!!
So I have been lucky enough to get my hands on some treasures that have once again seen daylight after moving, throwing out, and relocating stuff at the house, barn, shed... you name it. I have collected the weirdest things, the most beautiful things and just pure memorablia.
My grandparents are probably the reason why I love naturalia,, they too have collected anything from rocks to dried starfish and antlers. My cottage too has alot of naturalia going on.
I will try to show you some of the things that had made it's way to Vinnord.
The very old binoculars you see, I found in the shed. I love them, and the best part? They still work like a charm! Now they hang on my porch, ready for whenever the neighbours need some spying upon... erhm... just kidding... birdwatching! Of course!
The blazing hot sun has tuned it down today, and me and mum JUST managed to get the lawn mowed before the storm hit. We needed it... besides I spent the day at the coast yesterday, with new and older friends. It was the BEST time... we picked fresh mussles, I swam in the ocean (BEFORE JUNE!!!) and we ate and ate... I got sunburned! And I want to go again! As soon as possible! I hope to take my camera next time. To show you heaven on earth, in Norway.
