Special Swedish Package

This is the card included in my package.  It is a real steam train wheeler from a railway museum.  During this time of the year they offer Christmas trips to the public.

There are many, many bloggers more popular than me.  However, there a few I have bonded with. One is a dear lady in Sweden, AnnA. I had a very nice surprise from her last week. She has blessed me several times with little treasures from her world.
She is a lady of many talents. She is an artist and avid gardener. Lots of beautiful flowers and arrangements.
This is a painting of her English Summer Roses.
The little cardboard church was from a banking business many, many years ago.  I liked it and kept it along with others all these years.

The little characters represent a typical Swedish Christmas.  One is Lucia Maid, Candle Boy, Christmas Boy and small Gingerbread Boy. December 13,they have the Lucia Day in Sweden.

The little Swedish scene is just adorable!!!! I would certainly prize it more highly than some fancy expensive ornament.

Your painting and little dolls are beautiful. Have you ever been to Sweden? I have, twice, and it is just beautiful there. Isn't it wonderful, all the friends we've been able to make from our blogging? We are blessed.

Pogo and I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas. Hugs, Edna B.

hat a wonderful gift. It's not about the number of friends you have whether in real life or blogging -- bonding with one good friend is best!
