    Thanks to Erik for sharing with us his Swedish Christmas lights and to Mary Ann for finding Nordic Connections I am very happy with my new addition to our Christmas decor this year. I think it hits the spot in the breakfast area of my kitchen. It's funny how I say every year that I am "down sizing" on my decorating yet I still always ADD something new :biggrin:

    Your Swedish candelabra is very pretty.

    What happened to the little ship between picture #1 and picture #2?

    LOL I wondered if anyone would notice that....I added it after taking picture #2..being it is a ship I guess y'all would :biggrin: And picture #1 was actually picture #3 in the taking...the original #1 was too dark...flash wasn't on.

    That looks great Denise!
    I'm glad that the Swedish Christmas/Advent decorations can be seen "all over" the US! :doubleup:

    I was afraid the ship sunk between the photos so I'm relieved by your explanation... :biggrin:

    The decor of your candelabra is influenced of a region in Sweden called "Dalarna". The typical "Dalahäst" ("Dala horse") comes from the same region.

    Note: This is not a Christmas decoration... :whistle: It has become more of a typical symbol of Sweden.

    lol...let's try that again... "Dalahäst" ...that's what we get for having an English keyboard and copying and pasting to get those fancy grammatical symbols!!

    Denise - looks beautiful! I'm trying to decide if Erik is a good influence in sharing some of the Swedish Advent/Christmas traditions that are so beautiful, or a bad influence in that he's enticing us to spend money!:biggrin:
