Iceland II

 I went to the Skogar museum.
It shows how people lived in Iceland years ago.
 There are moss/turf houses and there is the first timber house built from driftwood.

I love the folkart designs in the crafts. They knitted their shoe soles .

The mittens are an inspiration to me. Just simply beautiful.

And o ooo, the color blue is everywhere, on the walls, furniture....
I have something with this fresh color blue. The color of the sky.

My kitchen at home is almost the same color as the kitchen in the museum :-)




Knitted  shoe soles.






Mittens.















 I took these treasures home with me. 
The little horse reminds me to the horseback riding we did. 
It was a highlight of our trip to galop on an icelandic horse in such a beautiful scenery.

We visited South East Iceland. Some day I will come back one day to visit north Iceland too. 
With the following  pictures I hope to give you a little impression of this country.
