Season’s Greetings from Nida!


This year our wishes are woven into the shape of the traditional Lithuanian straw ornament, “sodas” (“garden”). Sodas is believed to protect from misfortunes, bring luck, and symbolize the model of a harmonious world. It is said that sodas must spin freely, and being under a spinning sodas can even heal. Our openwork greeting card contains a bit of the Baltic Sea wind, so we are sending a sodas spun by it to your home!

With our season’s greetings, we wish you to find enough open gaps of time for spinning and swinging next year!
