Let me be the first to wish you a Happy Cinco de Mayo!
I figured that since the Mexicans waved Mexican flags on St.Patrick's day, we would have Swedish pancakes to eat on Cinco de Mayo.
Makes sense, right?
Yes, they were absolutely delicious!
Before she left for Sweden she asked me if I wanted her to get me anything in particular while she was there.
I told her I would love place mats with pictures by the Swedish artist Carl Larsson .
I was thinking inexpensive plastic....she got me the corked back board mats instead.
You can see how big they are; one is under Laura's plate in the top picture.
Larsson place mats. Larson is famous for his gentle paintings that captured everyday family life in Sweden, back in the 1800's.
Larsson's home is still available for public tours; it is arguably the most famous artist home due to his many painting that captured daily life within it.
My personal favorite: The girl's hat, and the cute baby chasing a crawfish: Just so cute.
It is raining like crazy here today; flash flood warnings are up and the lighting and thunder has been pretty steady for the last six hours.
I like rain.
Let it pour!
