Then I add my painted Swedish wood pieces which I have been collecting for 30 years. The most important piece is the red Dala horse. Some of my small pieces are a Santa Lucia girl, a lady in traditional Swedish costume, and little tomten.
In the back I stand my large Advent candelabra as well as my set of his and her costumed candelabras.The two stacked wood apples are part of a set of five nesting apples. They are not Swedish – they are Chinese! But they fit perfectly in color and style with the Swedish things. I got them many years ago in San Francisco’s China Town, before I was even old enough to go to school.
Oh, I almost forgot: underneath it all is a Swedish runner with a tomten design.
I’m linking to Rhoda’s vignette party. Go join the fun!
