Syttende Mai

Gratulerer med dagen, Norge.

Today is Norway's Constitution Day. Read more about how it is celebrated here.

We celebrated here in San Francisco last weekend at Norway Day. Kenneth wore the bunad we got in Norway last year. He had fun.

Happy Mother's Day

Sending a bunch of hearts (and viking ships) to all you mothers and mothering types out there!

I made these with my Rycraft cookie presses. I've been collecting them over the years. Although not made in Scandinavia they were inspired by Scandinavian (and German) wood carved presses. I grew up using them, maybe because the company started in Oregon.
