Daily Post Photo Challenge – Room

Daily Post weekly photo challenge wants a room and here is one of my favourite rooms:

Den gamle by

This lady was making ‘kleiner’ – a type of traditional Christmas Donut style dough shaped into a twisted diamond. Delicious. The simplicity of this room both in the nature of the woman’s clothes and kitchen itself, with its whitewashed wooden cupboards, and cluttered yet tidy appearance was, I believed, true to a realistic representation of past times in Denmark.

And here is the inside of a Swedish Torp. Authentic country Northern swedish design. Often the Torps are closed up in winter until summer re-appears.



Something to Ponder About

My contribution


About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.
