Photos, photos and more photos!

Today was a good mail day! I received at work my stitch markers from Kimberly - they are knitting stitch markers - the first that I have had! Also when I got home, waiting for me in my mail box was a Postcrossing'll never believe this one.....Swapna!! Out of all of the Postcrossing members, Swapna randomly received my name to send a post card to! Check out my mail goodies:

As requested by Cordelia, here are the pictures from my trip to Stockholm (along with some Kimberly commentary - did you think that I would not have any comments???)

First up - the wool shop: When I asked the store owner if I could take a picture, her comment "Of What??" when I said the wool she looked at me like I was crazy and said OK!

Next: A shot of the harbor - notice the blue skies - it was sunny and warm the whole time we were there! I think that we brought the good weather from Brussels with us! The second picture is St. George slaying the dragon!

Next - the back of the Vasa - very hard to see, but the wood working and detail is amazing! To think that this was under the water buried in mud for over 300 years!

A shot of me and Zori sitting outside of the museum enjoying the sunshine!

I love the effect of the sun and the clouds in this picture - very cool!

Telephone call.....what was that score to the ND versus Michigan Game????? What??? We won??? Woo hoo!!!

And finally...the biggest let down of my whole trip! I practically jumped up and down when I saw this store:

Only to receive the biggest disappointment when, upon entering I found out that they did not have Slurpees....nor did the other one hundred 7 Elevens that seemed to be on every corner taunting me!

I forgot to ask, did you buy any wool?

Jessi said...

Ok, are you talking about Michigan or Michigan State?
A 7-11 and no slurpees? What the hell is that about? That is just...wrong...just pure mean-ness. They ought to be punished.
Awesome pictures. So great. I'm drooling over the yarn store.

The ND game was against MI, I believe...

I seriously can't believe that there exists a 7-11 w/o Slurpees. That's so so wrong...

And thanks for sharing pics! I love travelling thru someone else!!

That's a very nice pic of you and Zori sitting there outside! And the pic of you at the antique telephone booth, so cool...I like it so much!
