Inspiration from the Baltic states

My father came to Australia from latvia when he was 8 on the boat called the castel bianco with his mother and sister as refugees from the war. Latvia has always fascinated and inspired me… I have some special thing always around me that inspire and remind me of my heritage.
Jug and mugs from my grandmother, special doll in traditional dress, a extra special necklace that Shane had made for me with a Latvian coin, Latvian traditional jewlery, wooden carving with woven band which sat above a mirror next to my grandmothers dinin room table for me to see at every family occasion…
