Catastrophy!!!!

So... it has been one of those weekends...

Saturday was amazing... me, ma and Lilo went to the fleamarket, then to the antiques shop and later took a dip in the lake! Just a wonderful day! And then I painted my new shelves and basically just had a great time.

Sunday arrived and ma, me and Lilo went to see my grand aunt Gerd. She lives in the US during winter, and moves back to her old farm here in Norway during summer. The farm is about 3 hours from me, so we had a fairly long drive there. Once we arrived we had just enough time for cake and coffee before dad phones. His voice is all shaky and we realize something is wrong...

and not just alittle... my parents barn has burned to the ground! Oh my gosh!!! We cant belive it, so even if we had planned a whole day there at the farm... we had to go right away...when we finally arrive home, there is a sad sad sight waiting for us... No more beautiful old barn... just a pile of blackened wood...Thank goodness there were no animals in there. We used to have chicks and bunnies in there, but now they live in a separate building... The only things that got lost in the fire, that cannot be replaced was a few family antiques. An old bed from my great great grandmother among other things. Everything else was thing one can easily replace. And we were inscured. Sigh.. but very sad still...

The main house also got some damage due to the heat. The side that was facing the barn had bubbeling paint and all the windows are cracked. So it need to be fixed up...

A sad day at the Feldmann's family house for sure... but we will fix it all back! :)

What I found at the fleamarket and other happy things will be shown here later :) in a different post!

Oh no, this is awful!!! I'm so sorry this had to happen to your family. My grandparents have a big old barn too, and I'd be devastated if it burned down. You have such a great attitude about the whole thing though. :)

I'm glad everyone is well and that there were no animals but I'm so sorry for your loss. I sure like your attitude. :)

Å nei! Noe så forferdelig. Heldigvis ingen dyr der inne. Men så trist med de gamle tingene da.

Fantastisk flotte bilder av hjemmet ditt ho NIB nå. Du verden for en jobb du har gjort, og med det imponerende resultat. Flink er du!

Er så letta over at det gikk så bra.. Og jeg er så gla for at den personen som kom til huset da det brant, var så snill og selvoppofrende at han spylte huset med vann, -enda han fikk brannskader utav det.. DET er hjertet på rette sted=)

Hei,
så trist å lese om brannen - men det er jo utrolig bra at det bare var materielle tap da.

Fant deg via NIB, har lagt meg til som følger. Fin blogg!

Hei, jeg har identisk spisestuebord som ditt - i verdens mest skrekkelige furu... Hva slags maling har du brukt for å få det så blankt og fint? Mvh Camilla
