Every time I visit my mother I seem to unearth more and more stunningly awful Norwegian kitsch...how much could she have toted over from the old country when she came here?? Anyway, this time it was lovely black and white guidebooks paying tribute to the joys of Norski living, with photos of cod drying in the sun, hideously ugly wedding parties, babes in the nip posing as the Little Mermaid (hey, no fair, that belongs to the Danes!) and the photo below of a woman who is best pals with a bear. Let's just be grateful by the time this pic was taken, she had weaned if off to the bottle.
