Saab, I always read your posts and threads. I hope you pay downthumbs to anything you post no mind. The christmas/advent material you are showing remind me both of my own childhood and of my many years friend, Krista, whom I think I've talked to you about before.
Krista, born in Estonia, later in a displaced person camp in Sweden after the war, emigre to Los Angeles some years later, friend to me at university, and still friend , 55 years later.
Her home at Christmas time: masterful decorations, primarily interior (don't remember if there were any exterior, probably just a great wreath and some lights). She was and is still an artist, among other endeavors, and made a lot of those decorations herself. Wonderful mother and cook too. Anyway, your thread brings a lot of this back to me, in a good way.
