Obsessions....

I suppose all interior blogg ladies have obsessions... blogging & interior in general being the obvious ones... but we all have other, more defined obsessions within interior... a collection of oddities that make our home stand out from the crowd... Defining obsessions... I have quite the list it turns out... just take a look....

Old suitcases; they are the best solution for storing messy things like old magazines, hobby & craft equipment ect ect. And they look gorgeous!!!
Skyline & Nutbrown; retro kitchen utensils... I started collecting these on accident, and then decided they needed a proper way of being displayed... so thats why I hung them over the hob.
Skeleton Keys; I started this collection a long time ago, originally planning on a framed display. But in lack of a frame I threw them here and there, and now they stay that way. Because I loved how it looked. I am always on the lookout for more though :)
Old glass bottles; I love them... I love the apothecary look and style. And therefor I collect small glass bottles and use them pretty much everywhere. Favorite colours being old aqua blue, green and clear shades... I think they add whimsy to any decor without being to heavy! Besides candles next to bottles give off an amazing shine!
Frog Princes; frogs in general... but if it has a crown I am sold! In reality I am alittle scared of frogs and toads... so I havent exactly tested out if kissing one would land me a prince... I only have three crowned frogs, but I always want more... Of course, there could be too many...
Dragonflies; it is my totem animal, and you will find them hidden all around my home & in my jewelry and clothes too. I even have one tattoed on my calf. Self-designed even. My sister share this obsession and we are on a constant hunt for more to add to our collection.

Old Green & turqouise "stuff"; I adore the colour green, and turquoise/teal/aqua. And if I ever find something old and worn in these colours, I will try and get a hold of it! Many of my bits and pieces around my house has been found burried in basements and outhouses... covered in dust untill I saved them!
Green Figgjo; Norwegian ceramic wear. I collect anything made in their wonderful green shade. In fact I made sure my kitchen green and my livingroom green went with that shade! It was a must.. you might say I decided my palette around my figgjo collection!
Birds; This is a slighter newer obsession. It started out with wanting a bird theme in my diningroom... But I do melt for all little birdie things now... And they have escaped into the livingroom as well....
Lanterns; I simply cant get enough! I have 15!!! So far... and I could see me get more... becuase the library isnt decorated yet! HAH!!! Room for more!

Moss; I dont know why, but I really love decorating with moss... displays, little terrariums, around flowers ect ect ect. When I go for walks I try to remember my basket, so that I can collect nice pieces of this green delight on my way... And then use it here and there... :)
So... what are your obsessions? Let me know if you post about it... I would really like to read :)

Her viser du virkelig mye fint! Jeg falt sånn for bildet av den slitte, grønne krakken, med skrinet og blomsten i. Virkelig vakkert!

hmmm... Jeg samler ikke på noe jeg..! :S Nå ble jeg nesten litt lei meg, hihi... Her i huset er det "fugl og fisk", ting blir plassert der det passer best inn lixom, men det er høyst sjeldent at det dukker opp noe nytt i huset mitt... :)
Likte denne oversikten! =)

Kona mi har jobbet med kyr, og vi har noen ku-relaterte ting i hvert eneste rom tror jeg :) Kuskinnet vi har på stuegulvet har til og med navn (det var en ku kona stelte...) :-S

Først må jeg si at jeg er mektig imponert over layouten og bakgrunnen på bloggen din!
Skal du forresten ha mye for å lage noe sånt (har ikke tid og ork å sette meg inn i sånt!)
Innmari mange vakre ting du har tatt bilde av her! Svak for den lyse grønne fargen på porselenet...
Nydelig!

Klem fra Nina i Paradiset
