Have a Lovely Easter!

Ahhh, FIVE days off! I'm going to be together with my family, eat great food and lots of Easter eggs. I do hope the weather is going to be OK, for my Summer cottage is very tiny.

It's Difficult to Predict ...

especially the future!

This do not prevent me from loving tarot decks. As most know I am a collector, but apart from many other items, I don't collect tarot decks, in fact I only own two sets: Legend: The Arthurian Tarot, which is based on the King Arthur legend, which always has fascinated me, and I found the cards very beautiful. And of course I own a Rider Waite deck in miniature. I think they are ugly and dull, but the size is perfect for travel use, when I have time to study.

Now I've found a fabulous tarot deck: The Housewives' Tarot. It cannot get better than this!

It is packed in a lovely little recipe box, divided by cards, on which there in fact are recipes printed on the back. There is also a brilliant and easy to understand little book.
The pictures are in the most lovely fifties style, the colours and the motifs are perfect:

And there are lots of humour in the deck, just take a look of the devil:
A big fat chocolate cake surrounded by other sinful temptations.

At the beginning of the book is written a short story about how the deck was born, you can believe it or not, but the story is sweet. It is told that it was invented by a perfect homemaker, who had everything from the latest fashion to her home in control, she had well-behaved kids, and a happy marriage. She showed the deck to her friends during a bridge evening, and told them the deck was her secret to her perfect life. She put the deck into production and became a successful business woman - I wonder if her home continued being perfect?

You can read the whole story here.

Well, I have to run and ask my new toy some important questions. :)

Funny Fruits!

This only happens in my house! :)

A few days ago when I came home son had put speach bubbles in the fruit. The left orange says "Don't eat me!", the right one answers: "Take it easy, they don't eat fruits in this house.".

I suppose he has been watching too much Annoying Orange.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

I Miss Austria!

I miss Austria although I lost our homemade version of "Black & White" every time:
I'm white.

I miss the time and the silence and my daily ride in the gondola:

A peak out of the gondola window and there is son skiing:

But on the other hand - I cannot wait for Spring anylonger:

The Apron Revolution

What is that - you ask???

I have enjoyed reading Donna's blog since New Year 2009 where she started living in 1955 as an experiment. She writes so lovely, has such nice opinions and is very inspiring. This year she has started a website named The Apron Revolution. I am so in love with it, it is like a ladies magazine from the fifties, which is just me.

She has nominated me Apronite of March, and I am very honoured.
I suppose it is due to all my comments on her blog, I cannot keep my mouth shut, as some you might know. ;)

During my holiday in Austria I wrote a long article about how it was living in Denmark in the fifties, and how I live today. I apparently live a very vintage styled life without giving it many thoughts. So if you have the time and energy to read my rusty English, which is written without any dictionaries or access to the internet, then have a good time. :)
