Have Been Naughty...
A Little More of Oslo...

A Little Bit of Oslo...

Today I woke up and couldn't believe that I've actually been to Norway. Siw from Quiltegarden and Bente from Lille Stasjon in Norway were the most wonderful hosts. From the moment I arrived at the airport I was so glad to be in Norway.

Today I want to share a little of Oslo with you:

Erik, Bente's husband, took us to Vigeland Park, a magnificent sculpture park. The park is the life work of Gustav Vigeland and is full of sculptures that show humanity from birth to death and everything inbetween. It is breathtaking.

A favourite is 'The Little Angry Boy'. Of course, anyone who has ever been around children can appreciate this sculpture!

He has been stolen a number of times, always the sign of a good art work!

We also had a visit to the Royal Palace:

Where we saw the sculpture of King Karl Johan:

And took in the birdlife:

I really love this photo but my hubby thinks it's a little odd that I travel to the other side of the world for more than 35 hours to take photos of pigeons! I think he's a regal kind of pigeon fit to wait outside the palace of King Harald and Queen Sonja.

Here's my hubby, Rohan, and Bente's hubby, Erik, with a lovely troll.

Next post will be more of Oslo. I will show you my first 'trunk talk' in Norway!

Sweet Dreams,

Hi Leanne. It is so nice to have you back in blog land. There was a little hole in our lives while you were offline! Looking forward to your Norway postcards. As for your husband's comment on the pigeons, I think there is something really special about capturing images of things common to people the world over. I remember the beautiful pictures you posted ages ago of a woman hanging up washing in Greece. Just precious!

meggie

You really are a treasure Leanne.

Anne Ida

Hello! Nice to see you're getting back to normal! And that you are processing the impressions Norway made on you :o) You did a lot in as short time, and will probably need time to get the feel of it all. Your pictures are so great, Leanne! I love the Vigeland park, but don't go there nearly as ofthen as I like (20 min bikeride - no exuse, really :o)). Is the picture of Rohan, Erik and the troll up at the ski museum?

Look forward to pictures from your first trunk show!

So good to have you back in blogland. I hope you have had some good nights sleep now. No wonder you were tired after giving so much of yourself during the classes in Trysil.

Anne Bebbington

Oh that angry boy is so real and true to life - I have an almost 12 year old and an almost 47 year old version of that living in my house :o)
