Nero's Post II (2013-2015)

Hanna’s Post: Look what I found!


Vof vof friends, it’s me Hanna! I found something really cool so I want to tell this on my own!

Hanna and old glass bottle

I go for a walk every morning. One morning there was a little dog on the street. That dog I haven’t seen before. She was hiding me under the litter bin. I passed her far away not to scare her. I walked till down the street (with a great sea view and fresh air!) smelling carefully all the bushes and the street side. Then I turned back and saw that the little dog left from the place she was and followed one woman to a near house.

So of course I went to smell the place where the little dog had lain. And what I see on the grass next to the litter bin?! This glass bottle! I hardly noticed it, because it was on the grass. It has small broken ‘corner’ on the bottom, but I don’t mind. I guess someone who threw it away, left it next to the litter bin so someone else can find it! Hb said immidiately that it’s perfect to make a lamp as there is already the hole!

very old glass

This glass bottle is very old and looks amazing! It has bubbles and the colour is beautiful!

Funny thing is that the very same morning I had put the big, old glass bottle I have, on the table to take it to the shop. And then I found a pair for it! They look beautiful!

Nero was happy for my find and gave me a kiss! See the lemon? There are new lemons in my tree.

So now the bottles are on the way to the shop. I think they will be nice there with the sea glass pendants.

The day before I took out my hexies … at the end couldn’t concentrate on them … I can’t stop myself fixing the shop … but at least one update photo for you. Looks like I need to do some basting and first cut some happy fabrics. And the cucamber? I just had to add it to my ‘still life’. I have the best neighbours on the shop street. One neighbour brings to me cheesepies or even cucambers! One neighbour brought me these gorgeus flowers! It’s amazing what colours and details nature creates!


Now it’s time for my morning walk … who knows what there maybe waiting for me?!

  1. Your little shop is totally captivating, Teje!!!! There is just something so very special about old glass………it has “life” in its ‘imperfect’ clarity.
    Your lemon tree will give you the yummy ingredient for glorious lemon curd!!!! Sigh………….. I can taste that fresh tartness even as I type this…………………………. Have a sunny, lemony yellow day!!!!! Hugs…….

  4. Hanna you had lovely day today and I am so glad for that! The shop is super! And the flowers, amazing colors, I had to check if they are in water otherwise I would say they are not real ones! I wish you all to have the whole week as today with good finds! xAnneli
