Dalarna and especially Nusnäs is famous for it’s Dala Horses, but here is a Dala Pig instead! 🙂

And a Dala Roaster!

Acting like a real tourist! 🙂

My mom, Janne and I are on our way to Tällberg in Dalarna. On the way there we stopped in many cute towns, one of them was Sala where I took this picture.

Also from the silver mine.

A pretty church close to the silver mine.

This is the biggest dala horse in the world, it is 13 meters high and stands outside the city of Avesta.

This boat, “The East Indiaman” was built in Göteborg and made it’s first trip to Stockholm today.

One of the many boats in Stockholm.

We had dinner at Djurgårdsterassen, one of my favourite places in Stockholm.

Old Town by night! This is Drakens Gränd.

Another pretty street in Old Town – Kindstugatan

Carl-Gunnar & Aina

After spending the weekend with my parents they drove me to the train in Nässjö Monday morning. On our way there we stopped for coffee at Carl-Gunnar and Aina’s house and here is a photo of them surronded by all their beautiful geraniums.

New kitten

14 Aug

My mom found this cat abandoned in the forest a couple of weeks ago and took care of her. Someone probably had her over the summer and then decided to get rid of her. What an awful thing to do! At least this adorable kitten has a great home at my parents house now! She still doesn’t have a name so any suggestions are welcome!
