  1. Love viewing the Swedish Dalecarlian horse. It reminds me of my mother. Your sweet little stars are wonderful. Thank you for showing us how it’s done. It encourages me to try. My Hitty’s would love a little Swedish Yuletide fun.

  2. What lovely workmanship as well as cultural encouragement in this Advent season. Thanks for the journey into another culture.
