Glorious Sweden: Part I


When you are in Sweden, you can't help but notice the sky.


It feels bigger than in other places in Europe


and bluer too.


In Sweden, I visited an idyllic island


with red houses, green trees, crystalline sky, and fresh air from the sea.


I sampled Swedish specialties


midsummer strawberries


buttery sweet rolls and tea


made with your choice of cardamom or cinnamon


and traditional Swedish meatballs too (yes, they tasted much better than at Ikea :)



I strolled around Stockholm's Old Town


and admired the yellow ochre buildings


narrow lanes


historic doors


cobblestone streets


and even a German cathedral.


But best of all, I got to visit with Karin Eriksson


and see her gorgeous store manos in person,


where each corner


is even more beautiful than the next.


Thank you Karin!

Coming up - Glorious Sweden: Part II, including Karin's recommendations for the artsy district of Soedermalm in Stockholm, plus my trip to Gothenburg to visit Swedish artist Camilla Engman.
