Meet 13 of our ♥ oldies goldies in our home

Mr Lifecruisers Admiral

1. The Admiral, Cornelius Peter Wleügel, (danish nobility). He is an ancestor to Mr Lifecruiser.

Lifecruisers drawing of old royal clothes

2. Drawing of The Royal Swedish Court dresses from about 1786. This one I bought of a private antique shop. The original.

Lifecruisers boxpicture of girls

3. Old picture of sweet girls on a Chocolate box.

Lifecruisers old Napoleon liqueur

4. Mandarine Napoleon liqueur that Mr Lifecruiser bought around 1982 – and still not opened! The porcelaine bottle is from the famous Limoges in France.

Lifecruisers old coffee kettle

5. Old coffee kettle made of Copper that Mr Lifecruiser have inherited from his beloved grandmother. He spent a lot of time with her and she had the most exciting real life stories to tell him about.

Lifecruisers old...

6. Old…. yes, guess what it is???? We found it on a Christmas market and thought it was interesting.
Update with the answer: it’s a meat mincer.

Lifecruisers old bridle

7. Old bridle I found and fell in Love with at a fair about antiques. It’s for a farm horse from a long time ago. I could still almost feel the smell of the horse…

Lifecruisers old camera

8. One of my dads old cameras that I inherited. It’s an Zeiss Ikon Nettar 515/16, film format 120, photo 6 x 6 cm, lens 75mm f/4.5, manufactured 1937 to 1945. I also got an old cool manual for the amateur photographer from 1942. Very scientific. He also had one of these box cameras and he did all developing himself at home. I remembering him taking photos of us all the time, but the strange thing is that after he passed away, most of the photos were gone too. We suspect that they had been stolen, because there was no negatives either and that sure was negative for us :-(

Lifecruisers old phone

9. An old classic phone I spotted in a shop with old things. These kind of phones was common here in Sweden around the fifties and sixties. This one was never used, still in it’s box, so I just had to have it. The ringing is very loud!

Lifecruisers military hat

10. An old military hat from the swedish army that I fell in love with at a military antique shop and just must have too. The funny thing was that from the moment we went in there to the moment we went out, the man in the shop was only looking and talking with Mr Lifecruiser, despite the fact that it was ME that was most interested in the old things there and wanted to buy them. Mr Lifecruiser tried to explain that for the man several times, but he just didn’t see me *lol*.

Lifecruisers confession square

11. This is the pattern outcarved holes in our confessional in the kitchen….. The door on the closet looks exactly like a confessional, so we began to joke about it and now i’ts official. Wanna hear our confessions…? Send us an email and we’ll confess our deepest secrets to you.

Lifecruisers angel

12. Well, because we’re no angels our selves, we have to have some angel here watching over our heads….

Mrs Lifecruisers old sock

13. Oooops… How on earth did my old sock end up here…? And yes, it got a hole in it! Wool on wool it is :-)

    Mandy said:

    Hey Mrs Lifecruiser, great collection of old things, are you sure that shouldn’t have read ‘hole things’ like that sock there? lol

    I’m going to take a guess at number 6, it’s a cheese slicer?

    Mandy :)

    Lifecruiser said:

    Thanx every one for all the nice answers.

    Leanne: No, it’s not time for retirement yet, it’s in it’s best shape now *lol*

    Colleen: we’re feeling that old ;-)

    The answer to what #6 is:
    A meat mincer.

    I must say I’m surprised that no one emailed us to hear our confessions…

    sisiggy said:

    Love, love, love old candy boxes!

    You’re going to tell us what the thing is (#6), right? You can’t leave us in suspense…

    Melli said:

    Oh my goodness, I LOVE your 13 this week! My husband and I collect many antiques too! I adore your copper tea kettle — and that fact that it came down through the family makes it that much better!
