The Vacation Is Over

Hubby and I had a wonderful vacation with many memories to sustain us until we visit Estonia again, likely in three years. On the way home, we spent a little time in Stockholm. What a great city. Next time, we promised ourselves we would spend more time in Sweden.

I bought a "masqot" in Sweden. The information brochure that came with the piece states the following: "Inspired by ancient sagas and mythology, Mats Jonasson has created his own series of miniature masqot "spirits" in crystal." Mine is called Mazzai - Protector of equality and cultural diversity. I don't have any particular interest in the mythologies. I just liked what I saw and wanted to add to my "face" collection.

Below is what I brought home.

Hi Inga I am so glad you had a great holiday, oh I wish I could travel to far away wonderful places ;) The face piece you brought home would have to be the most gorgeous piece of art work I have seen in a long time I love it so much.Belinda

Inga, this piece is stunning! I am going to look this artist up for sure. This is a wonderful momento of your time abroad.

Glad you are home safely. I love traveling and when I get home I am so happy to be safe with my memories intact. I just know you were inspired by all of the art you saw in Estonia and Stockholm.
