Hello friends! I am currently in the Swedish region Hälsingland where my family lives and where I grew up. This beautiful little church is standing in our home village, and it’s from the 12th century.
During my stay here I have visited a few flea markets. There’s a lot of them around here during the summer, and it’s so fun to browse old stuff! This is the biggest one in Hälsingland, according to the interwebs.
Here’s another flea market. It had a room full of copper! All the places we visited were full of copper pans and pots and what not. I guess copper’s not hip enough to get a loving home. I think they’re pretty though!
I have bought two things during my flea market adventures in Hälsingland, both of them snail mail related! Here’s a little letter holder. I have no idea how old it is, but I like the steampuunkesque style of it. And my letter holder at home is always full so I could use an addition!
And then we have this little thing of beauty! I just couldn’t resist it! It’s so small and cute and the keys are the most gorgeous dark burgundy red. It seems to be in a good condition. I’ll try to give it a clean up and hope it’ll work smoothly! I have ordered some ink ribbons for it already: black and purple! :D
I have also written and sent some mail during my stay here, but I’ll post pictures of that next week. I hope you guys are having a great weekend!
