These four horses came from my father's side of the family.
Mum found them when she went through dad's things after his passing in 2006.
They had been stored out in the attic for many, many years.
She didn't even know about them. Perfect gift for me, she thought.
These horses are more special, and really old☺
The smallest horse has a broken leg and lean on the horse next to it.
A painting from Carl Larsson behind the candles.
One of my favourite paintings by him is at the top of the corner cabinet too.
Their home looks so warm and inviting, don't you think?
Next to my dad's horses I've placed my maternal grandmother's lingonberry jar
- a wedding gift when she got married in 1943.
My family items are precious to me.
History is important☺
My maternal grandmother called my home 'the museum'.
She didn't really understand my fascination with the old world,
surrounding myself with vintage and antique treasures,
many which came from her own home♥
