My great grandmother’s brother Ivar (read more about him HERE) was a renowned fiddler in our hometown of Hornindal before he emigrated to America, already at the age of 19! One of the mysteries I plan to research further is how he lived, and if he continued to play his fiddle when he eventually settled down in Canada.
Until then, I gave him a prominent spot on my deck, laminated and placed in a chalk painted plastic frame:
The serving tray was chalk painted and distressed by me last fall, and the shells were collected by my girls a couple of weeks ago, for us to use for fun crafting later in the summer 🙂
I set up a drink refill station, don’t you want to have a sip and sit on my deck with me?
I shared the imagery with Ivar in the pretty rose frame before too, you can find it HERE!
I also made a whole stack of these tart tin candles, I’m hoping to share that project in a later post 😉

Love the way your deck is shaping up. I could really relax there. I call my little corner in the yard Peaceful Nook, this looks very peaceful as well.
I suppose my place (unintentionally) got it’s name, when I made the zinc sign: Sol i hjertet, which means “Sun in the heart” 🙂 Drop by anytime you are in the neighborhood Darling, we can LIVE on the deck now 😀 xoxoxo
I totally agree too, it looks soooo wonderful and cosy there, and I can clearly imagine a warm summernight there with a glass of cool white wine and nice compagny, then a night would pass before you got to blink with an eye ha ha ha. And I absolutely love the tart tin candles too, they´re sooooooo beautiful too as the rest of all your decoratings here are. Maybe you should settle as an interior architect ? I´m sure you´ll do great with that sweetie.
Awww, thank you for believing in me Darling, but I’d be totally lost as an interior architect… They should be versatile, and be able to work to please others and t-h-e-i-r taste, I suck at that, I can only do one style, my own…lol! But I’m very happy if people like my style and find some inspiration to copy or adapt to their own taste 😀 xoxoxo
