After having some glimpses in my different posts - are you ready for touring some beautiful Norwegian homes . I am foraying into a monthly series – Et Norsk Hjem ( meaning A Norwegian home ). Through this series I not only intend to bring to you their beautiful homes and décor but I will discuss their lifestyle, their habits and how it is to live in a country that is consistently ranked amongst the best countries to live, often keeping its first or second position in the world.
UNDERSTANDABLE isn't it, with long winter months and temperatures dipping up to -30C (where I live) to around – 40C (further up north), a warm and cozy feel good home is needed. So indeed they have beautiful homes. I have been working for some time now to bring - Rakel my neighbor and her beautiful home to you all. It was fun – to go through each room with a click here and a click there and everywhere a click click and to come home only to realize that the effect was not good here, the light was not enough there, this one was out of focus, that pic was too blurred and so on (that's what one can expect from an amateur photographer like me :-)), and I ran back and forth again and again. Today finally armed with the pics I needed, I set out to meet her over tea to listen to the tales and memories that are woven into them.
Klikk Klakk Klikk Klakk announced the woodpecker my arrival
I was then led to this table, that I instantly decided to do a pre–post on .
the honey in the jar is made by Per – Rakels man
Stay tuned for I will lead you past the doors to things that are 200 to 100 years old.
and to doors that open to wonderlands
pot holders now, that used to be urine pots for those cold long winter nights . Remember the times with with no indoor toilets and electricity
Would 5 kilo berries be enough for you
to be a guest at Rakels house at this colorful guest bedroom with period furniture dating more than 100 years in time would be the icing on the cake
This is just the tip of the iceberg, stay tuned for much much more on Rakels house next week.....
