Jensens Ferndale Floral hosting Scandinavian Open House 12-5-09

As I was passing through the town of Ferndale I thought I would stop in to Jensen's Ferndale Floral and check out what was available for a friend for a party.. IMG_0716

I walked in and was surprised to find such a huge selection of flowers candles and gifts… and so much more! If you are looking for those little stuffed animals that interact on the computer called Webkinz they have them along with many other stuffed creatures.

Also what stood before me was a wonderfully decorated tree. Beautiful ornaments hanging there looking all sparkly and wonderful.

IMG_0718 I wandered around the store to find just about everything imaginable.. Different  areas gave way to treasures everywhere. As I was taking another look around I  grabbed an Advent calendar for my girls..IMG_0727 Every year I  find one that opens a new window for each day until  Christmas with a little piece of chocolate hidden inside.  Even though they are older now, it is a tradition..My daughter came in to  see what was taking me so long and her eyes lit up. Along with this I discovered a special area dedicated to  my heritage and depending on which side you are on it is either all Swede or Norwegian.  There is a wonderful  selection of foods like lingonberry sauce, ginger snaps and pickled herring.

I was so excited to see all of this and more…a dog dish! Wuff Da. Priceless.

You would have to have  been raised around a bunch of Scandinavians to understand. Uff da!

I also discovered that they are hosting a Scandinvian Open house this coming weekend on November 5th 2009.

And good sources tell me that someone is making homemade Lefsa. Best around they say... I heard some other stories as well but they are best told in person.

So if your in Ferndale stop by for a little Scandinavian flair and take a look around. I am sure you will find something fantastic for someone on your list.
