Norwegians and their coffee

I read somewhere that norwegians consume more coffee per person than any other country in the world. I do not know if it's true (how do they find out such things anyway?). But I do not doubt it.

Norwegians. Drink. Always. Coffee.

If some friends drop by, one always offers coffee, no matter what time of the day.
So this moccamaster is a much used kitchen appliance and I love my cute coffee box... you see hospitality is easy in Norway. If you in addition store some ice cream in your freezer you are well equipped to entertain these vikings.

cream-colered porcelaine

I love old porcelaine. Apart of the pitcher in the middle these are pieces I found for 1or 2 euros in thriftstores...

They are great for decoration, but I use them aswell in the kitchen...

...that they are used and have patina, just makes them even more beautiful to me...

We have had snow since the middle of december.
Everytime it started to get ugly we got new. This is really unusual for the norwegian westcoast...
