Uli by the sea





At the bottom are three of Latvia's anniversary coins. So pretty! There are many more, but I especially liked the ones with a pinecone and one with the traditional latvian braided ring.

    2. It is called an owl brooch, worn by wealthy men only in early iron age.

  2. I love our money :) The braided ring is called "Nameja ring" and loads of beautiful tales and legends associated with it.
