Tin soldiers + blue cookie jar by Hodalu Tin soldiers + blue cookie jar by Hodalu
I got the inspiration from one of Anderson's fairy tales, The Steadfast Tin Soldier.
I assume that Mr.Dan must be loving his soldiers more than anyone else ^_^.
By the way, there is a wooden toy soldier on my bookshelf which offered me the model pose of Nor's. And I love cookies!

Thank you for loving it!^3^
It's so glad to know you here! By the way, I love Norway so much! I'm eager to travel around the Nordic Countries >///<!
You got it right that I meant to spell the word Denmark as Danmark~XD Recently learning Norwegian became my daily work. It's of great fun in learning Norsk【←yeh I mean to this XD】~
Just try to blow them~ I think it would be fabulous to have those tin soldiers became real toys! How I wish I could make any of them TvT...

no porb, it's not hard loving them.. DUH!!
thanks for loving Norway, of course the other countries are cool too, but as you can drive through Danmark in one day ^^ yuo can't in Norway :D and it's so nice up here too..
Of course the winters are cold and spring is too, but the scenary in all the seasons are so beautiful, it's worth seeing, from the highest mountain (Galøhpiggen is the name XD) to the lowest hills.. somehow we've got everthing... something Danmark and Sweeden dont really have.. of course sweeden's got about the same, but not as much sea and Danmark hasn't got the high mountains ^^ they're FLAT!!


Yeah... learning Norsk (right back at you :D) is kind of fun, I want to learn Japanese so I fully understand the thrill...
If you hade made'em I would WANT them :D *snicker*

Here's a test then: lykke til ^^ (and try not to use dictonary XP)

Yeah, I've heard of the highest "mountain" of Denmark(snickers). The name is Sky Mountain if I didn't mistake =v=. (I mean no offense to Dennish pals of course =w=)It seems to be over 170 meters? So Den san is so flat!XD(Oh push him down on the ground, Norge~ Ahah, I'm so excited about TV Hetalia season4 >///<!)
As you said, Norway has almost every element for an amazing tour, and the Norwegian fjords is one of my resons to travel to your country ^_^.
Lykke til = Good luck, am I right? I've seen it a few times. But there's one question, does til functions as to in English? takk~:-)

hahaha... indeed Denmark is flat...
Norway has a lot of things worth to see, as well as 17th May.. that's something that's you'll never forget (of course, it's best in the city's) ^^

Good luck is right on the mark ^_^
and yes.. somehow Til also means To on English as when you write, To mom from me.. or something like that *chuckle* or "I'm going to Denmark today" wich is transalated to "Jeg drar til Danmark i dag" since all the words mach each other on the lines, but today is the only difference wich is "i dag" >_<

Værsågod (hard to know if it's a single word or not.. but it means ..er dunno the meaning actually >_< or as simple as No problem or there you go! -_-')

So I think Norwegian and English have much in common. Thank you for explaining so deeply for me =3=! I'm gotta start a formal self-learning later~
I'm not so clear about why you say it's hard to know whether Værsågod is a single word or not?
Er...May I know where do you live in Norway? I'm only familiar with the name Oslo and Bergen. By the way, Does Os really mean GOD originally?

Tomyo-kun Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
no prob, it's cool to know that someone out there like Norway..
The reason why I was confused of the word, is because I don't use it that often, and I'm familiar with how to write it because I've sometimes written it in two words Værså god... but it also can be spelle Vær så god XD

I'm living two hours from Trondheim, but my father and his family lives in Bergen.. the place I'm living right now though is Surnadal, a small town in the middle of Norway ^_^
Os? what's that, never heard the word, if God is the norwegian word, that is good in English, but for you, that means God, wich is Gud to us...

There's an article in my English textbook which tells about the invasion of Norman. There I saw a saying that Os once means "GOD" in Saxon and Celtic names, but later these names vanished. So I'm wondering if Os truly once means that in Norwegian or other Scandinavian languages.
I guess living in the middle of Norway must be a little bit cold, at least it is to me QAQ. But a small town is great >///<! I really admire life in a town, for I think it's far better than living in a big city TvT.

My imagination is showing me Mark-kun telling Andersen's "The Steadfast Tin Soldier" to kids while holding those cute Nordic tin soldiers up. :XD:

Oh man, I loved that story when I was a little girl! Not that I don't like it anymore. :)
