Scandinavian folk finds.

This week a new collectables and bric a brac shop opened in town, so after work today I popped in and had a browse...I'm glad to say I wasn't disappointed.
The shop was filled with lots of interesting ceramic pieces, these are the ones that I fell in love with and ended up buying. I really like Scandinavian designs, although they're quite intricate they're also simple at the same time.
As well as the ceramic pieces I also bought a little folk art carved wooden box which I picked up at a local car boot sale yesterday.



This little dish is a design by Bjorn Wiinblad of Denmark.


These pieces are designs by Figgjo Flint of Norway.



It's my eldest sister's birthday today so as she too loves Scandinavian ceramics this little dish and the one below will soon be hers -
***HAPPY BIRTHDAY JO!***

  3. Hi La,
    Thanks for your comment :) a car boot sale is where people who are selling items load up there car boots (trunks), drive to a car boot site, lay out there goodies and sell! Some people have quite a lot to sell and some just have a few bits and bobs. On the whole it's people who are having a good old clear out of rubbish. x
