I like their berets and their wonderful striped shirts! Very French, indeed.

When I was growing up, we used to call these hens "Dominiquers" - not sure if that is their proper name, but it does sound French, doesn't it?

Feasts. I love holiday feasts! When I was a very young child, I remember the wonderful Swedish holiday feasts that my Nana prepared.

There's nothing quite like a good display of fireworks!
While perusing the internet for interesting Swedish sites, I've come upon several wonderful ones. They always tug at my heart strings and make me feel so at home! I suppose I'm reminded of my wonderful and loving Nana, and also the very special visits I've enjoyed with my cousins who still live in Sweden.

She also created these cute little Advent lights from coffee mugs.
