Interior collage



Selv gamle damer er opptatt av interiør og design. Som pensjonist tilbringer man mer tid hjemme enn noensinne. Livet går i sakte valsetakt. Gjenbruk har vært et ideal siden oljekrisen tidlig på syttitallet. Jeg har satt sammen et stilleben av gamle tekstiler og gjenstander fra loppemarkeder, Fretex samt småfunn og litt arvegods.
I bakgrunnen et dansk litografi, fransk kjeksreklame, og norsk rosemalingsbrett. Bedehuskaffekjelen som rommer 5,5 liter fant jeg i en mørk kjeller. Ståluglen, en brevpresse som er formet etter høyrehånd, og både signert og nummerert, er min manns loppetrofe som jeg har kidnappet for ti år tilbake. Har valgt en sjokkrosa, steintøy 2 CV sparebørse til center piece.Second hand Torbjørn Egner og David Baird utgaver symboliserer kjærlighet til bøker fra vugge til grav.



Tinnuglelysestakene er arvegods, mens plastkoppen til høyre er en overlevning fra en henfaren thermos. Lappeteppene er annengangs gjenbruk fra bruktbutikken. Den turkis husmorstolen med stålunderstell og små hjul fra femtitallet er også funnet, mens pleddet til kr.39,50 ble kjøpt på Fretex sist fredag. Ingen bestemt stilart, men mange glade minner fra et levd liv.


Even old ladies like me fancies interior design. After all I spend most of my time at home. I like to rearrange my old and new findings. Recycling has been my contribution to a greener world since the 1970-ies. Daughter Serina has encouraged me to read the blogs of Todd Selby. Here I was inspired to compose a still life contribution for a competition on a Norwegian "fabulous" interior blog .

Love all the colors. You really have a cozy home that you have created with your own handiwork, choosing pieces to display and love.

Love this Elise. Did you notice the unity of the colors? Isn't it amazing how if we collect long enough, we will see certain theme and preferences appear. I have things from 40 plus years ago and today, I still watch for the same or similar colors.

So much fun... collecting and putting together little things that don't have to cost a lot of money, just make us smile! I love your collage.

Also love the previous blog... the Psalms have to be right at the top of my favorite books in the Bible. I NEED the Psalms!!
