If you have been hopping with us then you have arrived from Kim's blog here and checked out her card and tags!
If you get lost along the way you can always go back to Kathleen's blog for the complete list here.
When I think of Scandinavia I think of my dear mother-in-law who was Swedish. She was born in the U.S. to Swedish immigrants and grew up in Western New York on a dairy farm. At Christmas she always had plenty of Dala Horses. The Dala horse or Dalahast in Swedish is originally from the province of Dalarna in Sweden. It's a piece of wood carved in the shape of a horse and traditionally painted different provincial patterns. My oldest son inherited his grandmother's collection. I also think of different colors then the ones featured in the design post by CTMH here....
To me the colors should be red, white and straw. Similar to what you see on this Christmas tree. If you need additional visuals to keep up with me, just visit Ikea in the next couple of months!
The trivets are from my mother-in-law's home and I kept them as a legacy to this sweet, dear lady...
Now it is on to Maureen's blog here where you can view her unbelieveable winter layout!
