My Sunday walk along the river and Elsa Beskow
During the weekend I took a walk along the river and suddenly I saw a "mushroom",a non eatable one,but one I was so fond of in my childhood.Elsa Beskow(1874-1953) made many lovely paintings in books for children.When I started reading we had a book full of her paintings and especially the small "people" with a hat in red with white dots were/are my favourites.It also reminded of different stories about Santa.The pictures are from "Vill du läsa? 11 by Besow-Siegwald.(Stockholm 1950.)It seemed to be a kind and beautiful world we were living in.Now we also have stamps with a part of her paining on.
