Linking about Christmas ornaments…

Christmas ornament from Sweden

I wrote about Danish Christmas traditions in December, and took some photos of old ornaments, that I have from my mother. One of them was of unknown origin, and I didn´t post its photo.

My blogfriend Mrs. UHDD  Uphilldowndale  (England) mentioned  my Christmas-writting  at her blog  and made a link.  A blogfriend of Mrs. UHDD, Gerry (USA), followed the link, read my post, and decided to write about  their old family ornaments from Sweden . I went to read Mrs. UHDD´s blog yesterday, and afterwards to read Gerrys post about the Swedish ornaments…and what did I see…the ornament that I didn´t know the story about. As my mother in her younger days was living in sweden for a while, this ornament must have been some of the Swedish things that she brought back to Denmark.

This was great to find out. But the story doesn´t end here. Some hours later, still yesterday, “Madsilence” (USA) a blogfriend of my blogfriend Erika (Canada), wrote a comment to my posts about straw ornaments, about their old ornaments from Poland .

Now, the reason why I am telling you all this, is just to show a daily picture of the joy and advantage of blogging 🙂

    Birgitte, I’m amazed at the world-wide connections that can be made via the web. A good way to form communities of like-minded people.

    Straw is a common & inexpensive medium for craft work, especially in farming communities. Go here (http://www.polartcenter.com/Polish_Straw_Christmas_Ornaments_s/84.htm) to learn more of Polish straw folk crafts.
