A Great Success

So long the Helsingborg Antique Show has been a success for me. I think more dealers than me are doing all right. I´m very positive, as long as things are decent and the their prices reasonable, you can sell things with a soul. I have also seen during the little free time i had some good pieces around. The greatest band ever would say "I wish you were here".

And so is finally time

It is finally time for the Helsingborg Antique show, it comes a little bit in a strange vacation time, but in the Swedish antique world July is a month full of happening. Anyway i´m pretty much satisfied with what i´ve purchased, repaired, cleaned and will take to the show. A nice load is just being loaded on the truck. Wish me luck!

I told you so

As i told you it can never be to blue!

And it does happen (see preview article "on the road"), you can always find candies if you look with the spirit of a child. I did some nice buying up north, i´m very satisfied, i didn´t have so much time to be there and neither to restore the beauties i was going to buy. So i had to choose but it wasn´t difficult.
Next monday i´ll start to set up for the Helsingborg´s Antique show, that you all should visit. The detail photo is of a amazing extremely primitive corner cabinet with an astonishing blue paint.

Snow White and the 7 drawers

Oh yes, that is the name of my last restored writing/drawers, washed to it´s old nice antique-white color, charming like if it came out of a child saga. Perfect furniture for a smaller area.

On the road

Yes, it´s time to move up, like the birds i move my hunting territory towards North during the summer. I do only hunt antiques and sensation of the great nature we are (perhaps unconsciously) surrounded by. The combination of discovering news items, seeing beautiful places and meeting great friends is unbelievably nice.
From Halland to Dalarna trough all the landscape i drive by it can happen. I do often get to buy pieces where i didn´t thought they would be found. It sound like an old story but yes, for some magical fairy-tale like reason, it is true.

Helsingborg show is getting close and i do usually get the best pieces the last weeks before my shows. God let´s hope that it will be a lucky drive this time as well!

Never too blue

It´s never too blue or too much blue. I just love all the tones of this colors.
Two details photos to iconize this great color, photos of two pieces that i probably will have with me at the Helsingborg Antikmässa.
Furniture´s from the Northern part of Sweden, genuine, sincere and beautiful. Nice colors to a nice shape, that should always be ingredients in a right mix.

And finally...

Well it has taken 12 years of meditation and some small ounces of frustration to get to this.
Nothing better you say?
No, nothing better, but the truly way to express my work, my self and my journey in a simple clear way. The way i like it.
I hope you'll enjoy the same things in the same way i do.
