My love for Mora...and a blog surprise

Homes and Gardens Mag
Nothing says Swedish style to me more than the Mora clock. I have never seen such a statement piece before that is more beautiful. I especially love how each Mora clock is unique because of the flaky paint that many Mora's now have because of their age...it shows up other layers, colours from different decorating schemes, like a timeline of each Mora's history.

My favourite ones are the grey and white hued Mora clocks and especially the ones that have a hand painted "Mora" on the clock face.
True antiques and exquisite masterpieces.

On another note, the lovely Michelle from the well know My Notting Hill blog, asked myself and other bloggers to "attend" a virtual Baby Shower for Lauren Liess of Pure Style Home blog fame. Lauren is due to have her second child this month and we all 'gave' Lauren presents which Michelle put into a surprise post. Go to the post and see what I gave Lauren by clicking HERE.
Thanks Michelle for asking me and good luck to you, Lauren.
