Concrete / 189

Hej friends all over the world,

My blog host is improving the site continuously & it’s now easy to see where my followers are in the world. It’s incredibly interesting & exciting. I dont seem to get it into my head that I can sit in my corner of the world & reach other like-minded individuals around the earth, with just a click on the keyboard. It’s worth thinking about, how things evolve … & how we often take it for granted. Either way, it’s fun &  really overwhelming to know that over 43,000 visitors has “knocked on the door” during this year that I have been blogging. I would like to thank you – each & everyone, for your confidence & for all encouraging comments. BIG thanks 🙂

Today’s post is about something that I have developed a crush for (lately). Concrete, a construction material composed of coarse gravel, crushed rocks or sand plus cement & water. It’s a material which is energy efficient & have a long life. Furthermore, it only gets beautiful over the years. My first love in (untreated) concrete was a 40 cm high lantern with glass around all sides. Hard & brittle materials, which together became wonderfully appealing, with a lit candle inside. I bought it around 15 years ago (time flies) & have it still in my collection. Some things do survive over time…

Nice combination with the yellow couch to the grey wall, it softens up the room /
