Norwegian Heritage




My grandfather on my Dad's side came over from Norway. I'm proud of my Norwegian heritage and have several things in my home that are Norwegian. These are examples of Norwegian Rosemalling. My DH is of Norwegian and Swedish heritage. So we have Swedish pieces in our home also. I love the Scandinavian art work.

Are any of you readers of Scandinavian descent?

I'm "English, Irish, Scotch, and Dutch" on both sides. Funny thing is, so is my husband!

Very fun to see your Norwegian and Swedish folk art.

Not that I'm aware of. I know my red (natural) highlights come from our Irish decent. Beautiful pieces. They tell such a deep story.

I'm a Heinz 57 - combination of Irish, English, German, Checkoslavakian, and Dutch.

My Gramma also told me that her dad's family was Amish, but yanked over.

Neat artwork that you have - you must have amazing stories for each piece.
