I'm forever thankful for our veterans for letting me raise up my children in this beautiful northern country. My daughter wanted to dress up in Finland's colors (blue and white) to go to the Independence Day reception arranged by the city of Rovaniemi for the nineth graders.
The dress is blue but she wears a white rose in her hair. Here she is in her new Casino Shawl...
checking the mirror image in her very first high heels
in the catwalk.
(In case somebody asks, I made those cats some years ago. They are of cloth with some embroidery added.)
