Random Photo....Norwegian Bunad Magnet


This is actually a photo of a magnet I bought at one of the gift stores in Norway.  The magnet is attached to a card.  It shows a little girl dressed in the traditional clothing of the Telemark area.  One of the many things I was taken with when exploring this beautiful country, was the Bunads worn by ladies which changed from area to area.  They are still worn for special occasions.  I also saw many on display while exploring museums in the area.

If you would like to see more about the Bunad, I found a really great site here.

The traditional costume worn by the young girl is utterly charming and magnetic. It must surely bring back fond memories and would look lovely on your fridge.

I collect magnets and they're a good souvenir of a happy trip. I like the tradition of wearing the regional costume on special occasions. Have a good week, Denise. I hope you and Gregg are keeping warm!

So similar of the national costumes of Latvia as well where each district has a different one and people still proudly wear them on special occasions. Having been crushed under the Rusian heel for so long, it was one of the ways of retaining their integrity as a nation.

It is a cute magnet and their traditional Bunads are quite attractive.

Awww, it's precious! My friend's two sisters live in Norway and I've been given homemade crafts by them, which I love.

Fascinating link. The Scandinavian countries are so interesting. Thanks for sharing the connection. I think we have a swede or two in our family. I know Swedes are not Norwegians, but we put them together in the 'Scandinavian' category at the Census Bureau.
