Inherited--- A Vintage and Delicate Treasure

A sofisticated to my eyes...

When I was young, I know what we had on top of my family's table. I don't really care what kind of treasures we had? I just remember that my grandfather had a very fine china set and unfortunately ended to a wrong greedy grandchildren, my first cousin's wife. Mum inhereted some of the set and as I recall she adored them till her last breath. If I am still living in The Philippines, I would love to keep them by myself. Hopefully, dear sis will adore as Mum does.

Then, my new life started when I marry GH and move to Stockholm, Sweden 25 yrs ago. I know my love of kitchen/tables gadgets, i.e. household utensils, deep in my heart. It was already forseen by many of our friends--- my pedantic way and the love of a house to make it a home. I thank you Mum for that. It is true the saying "what we had experienced from our childhood, is what we get when we have our own" ?

Well, when GH mother passed away 2 decades ago, GH inherited a very old delicate set. 65 pcs, unfortunately, I can't find the coffee/tea set. But, I was overwhelmed of what is present in the set. At the beginning, I kept them in boxes and kept in the cellar. Not even dare to use them due to the antique issues. Suddenly, I decided to moved to my cupboard coz, GH saw 2 plates was cracked  due to delicacy. 

Used and showed You twice, I guess but I never get tired of showing the beauty
of this forgotten Swedish APL Lidköping set.(sorry no English version) treasure. I just want to show the date. Pls press the name to jump in the link, thank you*** if you are interested.

 I mixed this candle glasses for a cozy ambiance

  Gold plated flatwares completed the more delicate feelings
The outcome

Tea maker from Iran w/c I inherited from an Iranian neighbour
Long history in their clan endeed to an Asian girl. Amazing but it is true!
Tea table is covered with a very old crocheted tablecloth own by great grand-grandma.

OMG!!! Did you notice that I am a bit talkative this time? 

Anyways, Can you feel how I love to share some of Sweden's treasures that even a real Swede did not notice the beauty in it? The forgotten inheritance of their own.

Hope you had a good reading and hope you all had a great and a blessed w/end and productive week ahead.
