Another find in the mailbox today. More Adamson/Silent Sam merchandise from early 20th century. It’s the middle figurine (posed between a salt and pepper shaker and a cognac decanter) that’s new, and it’s in a format/size that I’ve never seen before. Ok, so this is getting nerdy beyond belief, but I really appreciate collecting something where I have no idea what’s actually out there…

Inspired by the fact that I am right now getting close to finishing our big special issue on Tove Jansson, I have bought these beautiful ceramic figurines from the 1950s, supposedly designed by Tove’s mother, Signe Hammarsten-Jansson.

Today’s big project. Doesn’t look much but man, digging out and building a terrace in a slope made up of roughly 70 percent stone is hard work. Looking forward to building the fire place in the middle. Next week …

A few months ago I showcased a rather interesting (well Ok, I think so anway…) little collectors comics print from sometime during the first half of the 1900s, featuring the Swedish character Adamson/Silent Sam, advertising the new invention of sugar cubes. Today, great friend Christian Kindblad gave me another four! One of these is numbered 24, so, only at least 19 left to get a full set :)
