Happy birthday Johanna!

Today it is my friend Johanna's birthday. She lives in Finland and she is one of my first pen friends. We still are in touch and have met each other both in Finland and in Greece. She sent me a birthday gift which arrived on Valentine's day. Here is her gift to me. It is a pair of earrings that is based on the traditional designs of the Saame people of Lapland.It is Kalevala jewelry
 And I am also adding some photos from our meetings both in Finland in 2007 and in Greece in 2009.
