Swedish summer cottage

My little Swedish summer cottage is looking a little dusty....


















Mormor and morfar are not looking very impressed (is there even some mildew on morfar's jacket?!).  Most of their favourite furniture has been donated to the white scandinavian house!

















One day I will start to spruce it up a little for them, repaint the front door, finish the outside walls and chimney.  Today they just had a little dusting.  (Actually I think these two figures may be from Germany, a lucky find in perfect 1:12 scale).

Hey Becky, you haven't blogged in a while, I hope you are okay.

Becky said...

Thanks for all your comments! Hi Norma, yes, I haven't been around for a while but hoping to find some time to keep blogging. I'd really hoped I'd be able to keep up with it more often but pregnancy tiredness has got in the way a little bit!

Norma said...

Take care of yourself first, have fun with your minis when you feel like it, and blog when you feel able. We will all still be here :)

BTW I forgot to mention your 'old folk' - they're so cute - full of character, a lucky find indeed.

If you find that 'mormor' and 'morfar' aren't actually German, they may be little 'provencal santons' from France. Wonderful little pieces regardless of where they originatel from!

Becky said...

Hello Monica, sorry, I've only just read your comment properly now. I shall definitely research the 'provencal santons' - the little people are not marked in any way. I'd be interested to know if they are wearing regional costumes. They are a bit damaged but I love them!
