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:

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:

Denise, it didn't take many minutes for you to order one! :biggrin:

Oh, look...delivery to the USA for "Dalahäst" in several colours! :) Though not a Christmas ornament, I sure think it would look nice next to the candelabra!
Seamom, look now what YOU made Denise do! :biggrin:

Sorry Mary Ann, but I have shares in the candelabra and Dala horse business... :whistle:
