Three books

I looked down in my basket. Four small Wedgewood Avon cottage dessert bowls, in the deepest shade of blue. A white casserole with a thin blue border and ceramic cracked slightly enough to tell the wonderful story of dinners at an old pine table. An aluminium springform tin, with an opening mechanism I had never seen before; remind me to show you someday. The Phoenix glass sauce boat that I’ve been dreaming about.

Surely that’s enough finds for a day?, I thought. I was wrong.

Surely that’s enough finds for a day?,
I thought. I was wrong.

I ventured to the book section, the one by the far right corner of our local second-hand shop. There are mismatched chairs and thousands of vinyls under the table that stands at the centre of a labyrinth made of bookshelves that have certainly seen steadier days.

And right there, I found these three books. Pages of illustrations and notes about the Swedish wildlife. Pages thatI fell in love with and will soon thumb through. Pages I thought you might like too!

    Such wonderful books Fanny! I’m certain you’ll treasure them for the years to come.

      Oh yes I will. At first I considered offering them as Christmas presents, but really, it would have been too difficult to part with them; that’s how much I’m smitten!

    Envie de se fondre dans ces images pour un voyage en suède. Câlins.
