COSTUME POSTCARDS FROM NORWAY (For reference only)


PEOPLE DRESSED IN NORWEGIAN COSTUMES.
(NOT FOR SALE.  They are for reference only).

NORWAY

 * * *
Today I am listing fifteen Norwegian costume postcards.  They show people dressed in the costumes of different regions of Norway.  (These postcards are NOT for sale).
Postcards showing real people dressed in costumes of different countries are an excellent source of information, not only if you want to identify a doll, but also if you want to identify a costume of a certain country.
As always, you can see more information about the costumes worn by the people on these postcards on my website www.worldcostumedolls.com
Just go to the HOME page on my website and click on "POSTCARDS" at the top right hand corner of the HOME page, then put "NORWAY" in the Search Box, and all the Norwegian postcards will come up.
Thank you.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! (and a few more dolls)


HAPPY NEW YEAR
TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS!

LESOTHO

First I would like to thank you all so much for your support during the last year.  Thank you too, to all of you who have sent me lovely comments about my website.  I appreciate it very much!  I hope you will enjoy seeing more of my Posts, here on my blog.

I have had a very busy year this year (as I am sure you all have, too!)  I have had two beautiful family weddings, and I was very fortunate to have a wonderful holiday in Tibet and China. I was able to buy a lovely pair of hand made dolls in Tibet, which are now on my website.

I am also very lucky to be living in a lovely part of the world where I can go walking, seeing the most stunning Welsh countryside, and of course, seeing all the animals on my walks, which is an extra bonus!

I hope you have all had a good year too, and that you have been able to find more beautiful dolls for your collection.  

 * * *

Here are a few more dolls for you to see.  They are from The Philippines, Greece and Lesotho.
As always, you can see more pictures, and more information about the dolls, on my website, (www.worldcostumedolls.com).  Just click on the "INVENTORY" Tab on the HOME PAGE and put the code number of the doll in the box, and it will bring up the doll.  If you just put in the name of the country, it will bring up all the dolls in that country.
