More foot wear

These are very special to me,
and they come from the northern part of Norway,
"The Land of the Midnight Sun",
Finnmark.
They are handmade,
and normally a part of the Sami people's
beautiful traditional outfit.
These are in Norwegian called "Komaker",
and I learned that they are used outside in the summer,
or inside as slippers.
Their winter shoes are called "Skaller"
and made out of reindeer hide.
It's a present
meant for the little foot below,
given to me by a very special friend,
and I am so thankful.

Disse fikk jeg i dag.
De er litt små for meg,
men vil passe den lille foten nedenfor om et par år..
Tusen takk!!
