I Love That Knot!

I am absolutely obsessed with this original artwork on paper by talented Patricia Thomas. The lines are simple and beautiful and I love the message behind the lover’s knot. According to my dear friend Kiki that is what Swedish sailors in the 16th century would tie and give as mementos to their loved ones before they went on their ocean voyages. The two intertwining overhand knots symbolize two intertwined lovers.

Lovely Hyacinths

I don’t know many Swedes who would endure a Winter Holiday season without fragrant Hyacinths. Every December I remind myself to follow the Swedish tradition here on the other side of the Atlantic – but I always forget! This coming December I will remember, I will remember, I will remember…. And I need to remember to pick up a few of those tall Hyacinth pots as well. Will I find them here in the US?
