rest in peace

 My mother in law passed away this weekend.
But we have many good memories, pictures and things around us that reminds us of her. She had a really fun and cool personality and taste. Just look at the wonderful things we have at home that she gave us over the years. It's good to have things that reminds us of her and her fun spirit. May she rest in peace.

A old "stamp" for textile printing. I've started to collect these after she gave me this.

A wonderful  springbok rug from her trip to South Africa.
Matroska from Ukraine  for Ozzy
Vintage Johnson Brothers hand painted dinner plate.
I love the colors on these plates.

I'm joining Blogger Day of Silence to bring focus on Japan and all the people who are affected by this horrible incident there right now. I love Japan and the japanese people. And it breaks my heart to see the images on tv and internet from the tsunami these days. There will be no post from me tomorrow, friday the 18th of march. I have a link to the Red Cross in Norway here on my blog and links to other ways to support different organizations in the previous posts bellow.
