Oh, I can't even begin to describe the joy it is to have my mother here visiting us for three whole weeks. She has to leave now in a few days and that is going to be very sad to say goodbye. I have neglected this blog, my mails, etc so I could enjoy her company to the fullest. I want to thank everyone for such enthusiasm for my most recent post! We have had so much fun reading all the kind words and have really appreciated it.
Would you join us on a photographic tour of the highlights of our shopping expeditions?
These are the gorgeous windows from Husfliden.
Husfliden has the most fantastic selection of yarns in every color imaginable.
I love these little embroidered flowers.
Mom and I can actually spend hours looking through this shop.
Perhaps you can see why after you have finished with this post! We both adore this old-fashioned dress and purse.
Husfliden is one of the few places in Oslo where you can try on and order your very own Norwegian National Costume or Bunad.
You cannot help but notice the details on the budnad. Some have incredible hand embroidered skirts but this one has combined two different trims for a stunning effect.
The trims really are exquisite. When I approach this display I am like a child in a candy shop with wide eyes and eager fingers, wanting to pile it all up and take it with me to the register and request meter upon meter...
The golden and glitzy ones are an interesting contrast to the Norwegian everyday clothing which were rather plain.
Oslo has been providing us with the loveliest of weather for our outings. Sunshine and not a cloud in sight!
Mom insisted that I show you how the parts of my dolls look when I have them laid out on paper.
These are some colors I have been working with lately! Can you guess what these fabrics, a gift from Anne Katrine, are becoming? I am excited to show you soon! Oh, I have a great deal to share... you'll be hearing more soon and more often! We have so much to catch up on!
Meanwhile have a wonderful weekend and lots of love from Norway!
