A Swedish Surprise

I was really surprised during the holidays when the mail came. I received this great package from Anna in Sweden. For someone completely across the world, to take time to remember me was very touching. She has a great blog. If you like great photography work and flowers, give her a visit. She can be reached at http://annama-trdgslivannatliv.blogspot.com.




This is Christmas card she sent. If you noticed on the left side of the card, is one of her own little tree creations. She does so many great things.

This is a piece of Swedish handcraft.


These are two big, glossy finished pictures of some of her work and the flowers around her. I treasure both of them. I am going to frame the one with pink and white flowers. These shots really do not do them justice.


Thank you Anna from the bottom of my heart for this wonderful surprise. You are so kind and thoughtful. Blessings to you and family during 2011.

Dear LV!

Such a surprise, that you are writing about me, when I have thoughts of answering your nice comments...
The handcraftes things are not made by me - it is a nice swedish-american lady named Brita Ek. She lived in US some years, working as a fashionmodel, married with an american man, but when her old mother got sick she moved back to Sweden again.
I have a link here, where you can see more about her things

But the photos are mine...Taken of flowers from my garden.
Nice that you liked your gifts!
Have a grat New Years celebration!
See You later!
Best wishes!
