One of my sisters-in-law is of Norwegian descent, and wanted an appropriately Scandinavian “welcome” sign for her house. I combined a Viking longboat with “welcome” translated into Norwegian and she loved it.
(Image shows both the prototype & 15"ish finished product)
EDIT: Scroll down for the correctly spelled version!
What a great design! Love the longboat.
How thoughtful and elegant in execution!!!
As much as I love this, if you incorporated a bit more of a Rosemåling feel into it, you’re basically 1 color away, that would hyggelig
Heh. I had to look up Rosemåling, but I already knew hyggelig from hanging around with my Danish friends.
The Viking Kittens approve!!
Glad you’re back to forging. Looks great!
So it turns out it’s supposed to be spelled with a “k.”
lol… didn’t want to be the
ass one to point that out!
(where did you get your translation?)
Sorry about the spelling. Since I didn’t know the difference, I simply loved it!
If you’d said you were redoing it for the Rosemåling I would have mentioned it too.
Norwegian “descent” - not Norwegian - and English is famous for messing with spelling while stealing words! Makes perfect sense
I was a dual citizen until I was 21, I speak both fluently, and like eflyguy I didn’t wanna be the
ass one to point out the spelling. If you really wanna giggle look up my forum name on google translate
as an added Huh? on either translate, or the languages - translated to Norwegian it’s uppercase - but to Danish it’s lowercase! Same word, same spelling - just different case Related languages can be fun (read: terrifying) for translation programs!
