As we approach the holidays, I thought I'd share two of my absolute favorite things I own with you, my mom's two Dala horses. My mother always dreamed of owning one and when she finally made it to Sweden, she treated herself to these two. Not only are they so very pleasing to the eye but they remind me of my mom.
(A bit of a back story ... My mom's fraternal grandparents were Swedish. Her grandfather came over in 1883 and her grandmother in 1887 and settled in Minneapolis, MN. In the 1980's my mother and her sister went to Sweden and met one of the surviving family members. Sadly when I went through all of the tons of paperwork that my mother did save, I was never able to find a name and address for this uncle and his family. So very disappointing!)
