My Uncle's Cabin II: Vintage

Cabin duvet

Plate holder

The embroided bunad couple

Lamp and decoration

Old blankets

Pot holders

Old Figgjo plate

Troll with candle stick

When they bought the cabin it seemed untouched from the 60's - filled with typical Norwegian objects from the time. They've decided to leave it like that, and the result is a real "hytte" feeling.

I'd like to welcome all new readers who's entered via Trift Core: Thrifters around the world and my feature there. Please stay if you like!

And when I said I'd hurry up to capture the Arctic summer in my last post: It seems that back to stockings before you know it is now.

See you soon!

Hi! I found you on Thrift Core. I am your newest follower. I am fascinated by your midnight sun and chilly weather. Here in my California town we are forecast to have temps of 105 (40.5) today. I love your photos.

I LOVE the mix of textures, colors, and traditional object in the cabin. The little peeks into your life up North are beautiful. Thank you for sharing your thrifting adventures with my readers today :) !

Oh yes, stockings here in Aberdeen too. Your photos made me think that I really should use wall space to store things more often! So many things hanging on the wall - and you can see and enjoy them as well as use them.
I hope you're keeping very well! The cabin looks like a great place.

Very sweet cabin. Four weeks to go... you can do it! I think of you and your never-ending days often! Ours are long now and I love it, though I think I'd go crazy with no darkness at all. No bears...though I thought about it as I got further in. I have not heard of one encounter here yet this year, strangely enough. Though there have been a number of moose sightings! Happy happy weekend to you!

Your uncle's cabin looks just like my grandmother's hytte just south of Bergen. My favourite place in the world. My cousin has it now, but keeps it as it was, but with sympathetic alterations (the toilet is joined to the cottage, not at the end of the garden now!) thanks for sharing the photos, took me back to childhood!
