My computer is realy slow now, after having installed a new version of Norton. I can´t help thinking, that this protection is very effective, because it is almost impossible to use the computer.  Just too bad I had to pay for not using it, but I must be glad that it is safe.

Luckily I had something in the DRAFT box. I made this last summer, I wanted to show you an old lunch-box,  a  “Tejne” . My mother gave it to me years ago. She had it as a present from her grandmother, who used it as her lunchbox, when she was young. She was born in 1869. These lunch boxes were ordinary at that time. I don´t know how common they were in other countries?

To make this photo session authentic, I made myself a lunch, wrapped it in paper, and placed it in the tejne, ready to be eaten…in the warm sun…with birds and bees flying around……and the green grass a bit to high as usual.

I suppose I have to say Thank you Norton for this glimpse of summer…

    What a lovely lunchbox! So sweet that you can have ‘lunch with your grandmother’ by simply opening this box. That’s a treasure!

    This is an absolutely beautiful box. I am beginning to think that everyone in Denmark insists that their everyday possessions be not only useful but beautifully designed. (Please do not disillusion me if this is not the case!)

    It reminds me of Shaker boxes.

      You are absolutely right about Danes and design. We are so obsessed about getting our hands on desing, that one of the most attractive things to steal is…designer furnitures. My Canadian cousin was laughing out loud when she heard about this, but it is actualy the truth. One never know if there is a chair to sit on, when comming home, or showing up at work. Offices and schools have begun to brand their chairs. Some weeks ago, all the designer lamps inside and outside our local church was stolen…so you see, design has great interesse at both sides of the law.
