Stockholm, Sweden

I used to post travels every Sat but have stopped that for quite some time. I started looking at my old travel posts and I thought I would share them with the Tablescaper's travel meme. This was originally posted on October 16, 2009.

Here is a trip to Stockholm, Sweden that I took with my sisters a few years ago.

I am linking it with "Oh, the Places I've Been"

Please visit The Tablescaper's other awesome posts.

The week went so fast and it is Saturday again. That means a lot of pretty pinks will be circulated in Blogland and of course, I wouldn't want to miss the action. You probably wouldn't want to either so c'mon at Beverly's of http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/06/so-just-what-is-pink-saturday.html

My contribution today is a wooden Halloween lamp that I bought on clearance for $7 at Dillard's. I thought it's kinda cute. I placed it on the bar counter so that it can be seen both from the kitchen and family room and I just leave the light on all day and all night.

OMG! I did not know there is dust on the top wood panel. Looks like these large pictures show everything.







Thanks Beverly for allowing us to share some pinkness.

I have shown you 2 trips to NY for the last 2 Saturdays so maybe you are getting tired of it so I won't take you back there. Let's go to Stockholm, Sweden instead.

 This is downtown Stockholm where my sister and I took a shopping trip with my nephew and his family. The tour guide took us to a store where they sell Costa Boda crystals. Every item displayed was so pretty. Sorry, I forgot to take pictures.

Changing of the guards.

Isn't this lamp post so pretty? How I wish I could have something like that in our garden.









My sister, Fe. I betcha you won't be able to guess how old she is!

I love the changes you have made with your blog. All the pictures at the top are great, they are SO YOU!! I showed Alan, I don't think he has seen the pool yet. I made a few small changes in my blog too. Let's see if you can find the 3 things...

These are beautiful pictures. Did you go to Stockholm recently, and how did you come by that? Beautiful scenery! I love the architecture and the beautiful river. I hope you had a great time!!

I love your spooky lamp!!! As far as the dust, I think the flash can pick up microscopic particles whenever it wants! lol!!

I sent you an email. I will try to post my Vegas trip tomorrow when we get to the lake and link with you. Have a wonderful weekend!:-)

Sweden looks like a fairy book land! It's beautiful. It's funny you should mention your sister's age. I asked MY sister the other day how old she thought you were and she said mid-thirties! I was pleased to shock her because you look fabulous! So does your sister, I'm guessing she's your older sister?
Your Halloween house is very cute and don't worry about the dust. We all have it! Happy Pink Saturday!

I also added my name to your followers list. I could have sworn I put my name there months ago when we first began blogging together. I've had this happen a few times lately, or I'm just losing my mind! Which is entirely possible some days.

Blessings & Aloha!

Oh, Christine, Stockholm is gorgeous! I have not been there.

I do like the Halloween lamp. If you have time, look at my post for Thursday where I feature a lamp from an artist friend.

Happy Pink Saturday! And, hope to join the travel posts when I get my website all stocked.

Sorry I'm a little late. Seems like when the sun is out I feel a desperate need to go outside and run errands or just life my face to the heavens and soak in the last rays before winter hits my neck of the woods.

It's always so much fun to share in the pink goodness of the blogs gathered together for Pink Saturday. A collection of some of the nicest women and prettiest blogs in cyberspace!

Wishing you a weekend filled with l♥ve and sunshine!

Your lamp is so sweet. I have to say that Holland is my favorite country to visit and play in, so pretty and the Dutch are so friendly. Happy Pink Saturday, Char
