Tack, Tack, Tusen Tack!

holy experience



78 - Tack, Tack, Tusen Tack - a beautful phrase taught to me by a Swedish blogging friend meaning "a thousand thanks" - how appropriate

79 - a son who goes on a quest to recapture a childhood memory of mine

80 - a resident baker

81 - the comfort of soup and a blanket

82 - coffee with a friend

83 - needle and thread

82.... snap...lol
(had to check it wasn't our fella visiting but no...he's still here)

Val, I noticed from your banner photo that our kitties looked alike. Does yours drink coffee too? lol

I love that he found the cherry candy in a hatchet, does it taste better from him now, or in your nostalgic memories? I imagine it would taste better now with the added sweetness of the gesture.
That gives me an idea, how marketable do you think candy scalps would be? One could fashion cotton candy or candy floss onto a splotch of chocolate (with some raspberry hard candy for some added effect)...imagine all the American history that can be fashioned from candy! Hmm, perhaps I should start putting out swedish fish and candy corn in celebration of Thanksgiving, that seems more fitting than using candy corn for Halloween. How I do prefer to eat lemon drops off of Chinese stars.
And the kitty drinking coffee is adorable! I love Bron's cookies! she has a gift for making them.

I love the Swedish expression for
"a thousand thanks." So glad you shared it!

Jodi said...

Tricia, you're welcome! It's a great phrase, isn't it?

Cat in your coffee = AWESOME!

Haha, I'd like to point out that no cats were harmed in the taking of that photo, but mom wasn't happy though lol! ;-)

Love the cat-in-coffee shot!

Also love the fact that a quest was undertaken by a noble son to find a gift fit for a worthy matriarch...

and that a noble daughter has been gifted with the matriarch's finest of baking skills, among many other qualities!

Alive2003, I was really touched by Alex's gesture and loved sharing the kitchen with my girl.

Picture 83 is so cool.
I love your shirt (love your lipstick).
No seriously, the cutwork and smocking on the offwhite blouse offset by the black beneath is so pretty. Combined with the locket and the embroidery work, it is a modern day "portrait,"
minus the lovely face, revealing what the sitter likes to do very much- create, create, create with hands that are not very often idle.

Joan, your so nice :)
