Ian and Wendy slideshow of Iceland


Above is a link to a site with some marvellous photos from my country that I came across when Google-searching for pictures of traditional Icelandic dress, that I particularly want/ed to show to my Blogger-friend
Johnny Newt! These (surprisingly) from Árbær Museum were the best pictures I could find.

But in fact I remember my granddad´s sister wearing some kind of a simplified version of our traditional dress every day. It was a woolen buttoned-up sweater and a long skirt; I never saw her wear anything else. And of course she wore the festive version of the costume on such (festive)occasions.
