Glass, glass, glass

My collection of glassware is forever expanding... Unfortunately it's impossible for me to find room for it all, not to mention have it all on display. I also find it hard to keep it all dusted and sparkling clean all the time (so I don't). I know I have posted most of these items at some point before, but I'll go through them again, from the left: yellow ashtray by Vicke Lindstrand for Kosta (I think), yellow candy bowl from Hadeland, blueish black dish also Hadeland, slim grey vase from Hadeland, brown bottle vase unknown (similar to Holmegaard), tiny dish from Orrefors and last but certainly not the least in this collection, a huge vase from Habitat.

Wild summer flowers

So far it hasn't been much of a summer in the part of Norway where I live. Still, have to try and enjoy what there is, I guess. Like the wild flowers. Above is a sample of what's growing like weed in our neighbourhood at the moment, and below is the best little bouquet that my son picked for me earlier this summer. Bless.

Mystery Stavangerflint tea set

Here's a pattern by Stavangerflint I really, really like. It's cobolt blue on grey stoneware. I have only come across this pattern twice and never seen it online on any blogs or web shops. I would guess it's a 70s design. If you should happen to know the name of the designer or the design, please let me know!

Also, if you know anything about the blue candle holders in the back of the photo, I'd love to hear from you.
