Ull kastrull is what I'm called sometimes. It means something like... wool sauce pan... or maybe wool cauldron. Because my name is Ulrika but I'm called Uli or Ullis och Ull or Bull or Kastrull. Sometimes Ull Boll (wool ball). Mostly because I'm crazy for wool, angora, cashmere and merino.
Our cat Louis is called Lollo but recently I've called him Lull Kastrull or Lille Kastrullen (little sauce pan). My sister who bought him in Italy named him after a fashionlabel. But now when he lives with me... I'll call him little sauce pan.
I'm so happy that I've fixed the last bits of my official homepage. Take a peak at it if you haven't already!
On the top photo are the pinecones we observed in the forest when we wanted to figure out what part the squirrel ate. I think they're quite beautiful half eaten. On the second photo are some gifts I really like, a silver rabbit necklace and silver pinecone earrings from Robert (he really knows what to give me). Vintage photo from Mina. Latvian coin with hedgehog from dad. Latvian silver ring from my godfather.
On the third are some things from Latvia. A knitted fox in a national costume that I bought this summer. Amber pieces from my granma. Old dog toy from my childhood. Little ocarina-like clay thingy.
I'm glad you liked the animal pictures from Italy! Always fun when I find pictures I've forgot I've taken.
Oh, and I pretty much forgot about the literature self-portrait, you too? 12 more days, I hope there will be some participants for this one as well!
