May 17

Today is May 17, Norway's Constitution Day, an official national holiday there. There will be many parades, including one in Oslo where King Harald and Queen Sonja will exchange waves and greetings.
[Do go check out the lace on HM Queen Sonja's dress here.]

One of my favorite blogs is Britt Arnhild's and her post today shows her daughters and other family members in their bunads. Close-up photos of some lovely embroidery.

So Happy Constitution Day, Norway! I'm with you in spirit.

I like that your world is bigger than mine. Blog-wise at least. Or I'd never read and see the things I do as I follow your links.

I agree with Yesterukes, the things I see on your blog are so interesting. Wouldn't even think about what they wear in Norway but I'm glad you did, those outfits are beautiful. I love embroidery on black. So stunning! Thanks for the world tour.
