VECCHI OGGETTI DI RAME ******* OLD COPPER TREASURES

Tra le varie cose ritrovate nel garage dei miei genitori, sono stati un gran numero di oggetti di rame, di varia vetustà. Il più bello, ma meno antico questo grande braciere che, dopo averlo ben lucidato, l'ho adibito a piccolo bar. Anche la specchiera che lo riflette viene dalla casa dei miei genitori. Dovendola svuotare per poterla mettere in vendita, ho fatto una bella cernità delle cose che avrei potuto conservarenei mei 70 metri quadri e poco più (ed in cantina). Ho creato quindi una piccola nicchia di rame e riflessi. mi piace osservarla perchè mi da quel calore di una volta che ormai non si trova più - che ne dici Eliana???????????

When I emptied my parents' garage I found a lot of copper treasures of various ages: some newer and some very very old. Didn't care much about the age nor the value, I simply took them all home and created a small "copper reflections" nook as also the mirror is coming from my parents' home. Thought it would enhance the warm and cozy atmosphere of past times that copper houseware was bringing in. What do you think Eliana???
My fave is the brazier which I converted into a small bar where I keep my wine and spirits. It add so much charm to that nook which was so empty to the eye before.

Quest'anfora è sicuramente più recente ma a me piace molto lì nel'angolino.

This amphora is certainly not so old but I like all the same there were I placed it, in the corner between a china cabinet and the brazier.

Questa pentola è molto vecchia,mi diceva la mamma appartenesse alla mia bisnonna. Mi è piaciuta così, invecchiata, e l'ho lasciata così senza lucidarla. Vi ho messo le ortensie essiccate e sembrano fatte l'una per le altre.

This pot is very very old instead. My mom had told me it belonged to my great-grandmother. Liked that "time-discolored" nuance and left if unpolished. Looks so fine to me with my dried hydrangea.

Guardate che delizia questo scaldino... roba d'altri tempi

E che ne dite dell'innaffiatoio?
Ne ho ancora tanti di qesti oggetti in attesa di degna destinazione. Suggerimenti?????

I still have so many olf pots and pans for which I shall find the right location. Any suggestions?

Con questi "caldi" pensieri del colore del rame, vi lascio che il letto mi aspetta e vi auguro la buona notte.

  3. Is very beatiful to see the old cooper objects, and is very strange to understand as the skilled people obtained these pieces with an only one sheet of cooper; Rita you have an important treasure in your home.

  5. Dico che sei riuscita a creare tanti angoli davvero speciali, mi piace tanto il rame (un po' meno quando devo pulirlo!!!) e possiedo un paio di scaldini della nonna che proprio non riesco ad ubicare nella mia casa ma che mi guardo bene dal dare via!!
    Per quanto riguarda gli altri oggetti in attesa di destinazione l' unico suggerimento che mi viene è.. CAMBIA CASA!!!!!!!

    Un abbraccio
