26.1.10










I have always (for a long time) been attracted to the stove, as a symbol.
I think it has to do with how a stove looks like rather than what it symbolize
practical. It is something with the box shape and the circles. I like.

I'm making a stove shelf, that's what I'm doing.




Gosia Machon. I'm sorry but I don't recall where I found the link. It can have
been at Claire's place, Camillas blog or Mieke's but I really don't know. It can
even have been at Lena's place... Hm.

oj... fick plötsliga nostalgikänslor. hade helt glömt bort att jag också hade såna små dockskåps-spisar när jag var liten. minns hur jag brukade öppna och stänga ugnsluckan :) tack för minnen!

Hope you cook up something good in that stove shelf.

Yay, looks very nice ! I could not tell the difference between the 2d stoves and the 3d ones.

Haha, tycker det är väldigt sött att du gillar spisar :)
Såg att du letade efter en plats att trycka fotobok, det billigaste jag hittat som jag själv ska trycka en fotobok på är denna sidan:
http://www.blurb.com/create/book/pricing
verkar vara väldigt bra kvalitet för priset, känner en som beställd därifrån!

Hej på dig=) vad glad jag är att jag hittat hit. Är alltid lika kul att hitta andra inspirerande bloggar...jag skriver mycket om
mat, inredning, mode och livet som ung fru och tvåbarnsmamma, men det är ju minst lika kul (om inte roligare) att läsa det andra skriver!

Massa kramar
/Erica

ps: eftersom jag hittat hit känns det ju inte mer än rätt att ge dig möjligheten att se vem jag är, gillar själv inte anonyma kommentarer, hihi...ds

I like this display, yes I do ... but a stove? Really? Mind you, I'd just like one I didn't have to wrestle with. Gas. Oh yes. Gas.

mathilda said...

sn said...

Stove Shelf!
Ha ha, sounds like something you should yell out when you win a board game or something.
I don't know why I think that but I'm into it.

Corinna said...

What a fun idea! A collection of stoves...domestic symbols into art.

sulu-design said...

I loved seeing this collection of yours. It reminded me of a special childhood memory. When I was a little girl, right around Christmas time, my mother would take me out to lunch at a restaurant in a local department store where they would serve children's meals in little cardboard stove toys. You would open the oven door to find your grilled cheese sandwich waiting inside. So fun!
