Growing up…

My dad and step mum brought us fresh home-grown asparagus from their house on Samsø, uhhm.

As a kid I was taught not to eat in front of the television, so posting this picture actually makes me a bit ashamed…

Uh, and another thing; as a kid I also used to play with the rocking horse in the background and before me, my mum used to play with it. When I reunited with it recently I was shocked how much smaller it has become during the years… Is it true you get a bit nostalgic when you get kids of your own?  I’m thinking of painting it now -the horse.  New generations new colours right? -any ideas???

    The horse looks fierce. :) I’d paint it with pastel colours, but I’d keep white body.

    I think I like the horse the way it is too!

    But… I also agree that a white body with other pretty colours around the head could look fantastic!

    That looks so good!
    I always wanted to have a yellow horse. Maybe Vilja wants one too?;)

    I treasure similar things passed down the family line though I doubt I’d paint it. I like that you are toying with doing so… it sounds like time for a coat of fresh paint.

    I remember this horse on Varpunen blog, in Finnish I don’t understand any of it but the pictures are very inspirational

    The old red and gold trim would pop if the horse were black. I heard the TV rule, too, (American, but part Danish) but the news was usually on during dinner anyway, so all I had to do was turn sideways from the table. Sadly, this was during the Vietnam War…. So my advice is keep the rule for Vilja. <3
