All the doors at the Green Hotel had something special painted on them. We loved the long, skinny ones. Remember that we’re in Dalarna, where they hold onto the folk traditions–and the paintings reflected that. Gee, right up my alley. I love life in Anna Lena Land!
This was Sally’s favorite.
Sometimes you had to look twice to realize what it was–like a man’s leg in his suede knee pants.
This one is a belt.
Here’s the floral fabric that is used for a lot of the scarves that are part of the folk costumes.
And the tassels that are also a part of the folk dress.
Of course I loved all of the different Dala horses.
And, since we started with the woman and her daughter, we’ll end with the man and his son!
