I have never made anything in clay other than basic circles and I think it shows, but it looks good at a distance. The dress is painted because I can't sew at all!
I am very happy about my wreath making, it's very easy to make, you just glue and dump glitter/grass on it and it turns out looking very cute!
Below is a little history of St. Lucia and how it's celebrated in Sweden from sweden.se. It is one of my favourite Christmas days. :)
The Lucia tradition can be traced back both to St Lucia of Syracuse, a martyr who died in 304, and to the Swedish legend of Lucia as Adam’s first wife. [...] In the old almanac, Lucia Night was the longest of the year. It was a dangerous night when supernatural beings were abroad and all animals could speak.
The real candles once used are now often battery-powered, but there is still a special atmosphere when the lights are dimmed and the sound of the children singing grows as they enter from an adjacent room.
Merry Christmas all fellow Sylvanian collectors!

As my previous post said I just got a swap from GSnail, but there was another swap at the Sylvanian Families Forum! A Sylvanian Baby Ornament Swap. I thought this idea was really fun and I got the ornament today from the lovely Suvenkorento! Thank you so much, I will be sure to upload a picture of it when it hangs in my tree!
The package included some delicious (!!!) Fazer chocolates, who doesn't love Fazer?
Suvenkorento made me a card! It's absolutely adorable with a little skating hedgehog on it and a bell. It looks amazing!
Handmade and absolutely stunning! :)
I am at loss for words how cut this little angel is! I had not thought about using a sleeping baby but the result is simply adorable, it surely looks like a little angel! She looks so serene.
Another shot from the front, the crotcheting is so cute and so very tiny. I love the details.
And from the back, I adore the tiny little button!
Thank you so much and merry Christmas!
Now I must go and write my essay! ;)
I have participated in the Sylvanian Families Forum Christmas Sock Swap hosted by the lovely bloem. :) I had lots of fun putting together the swap for my partner and yesterday I got the things from my swap partner, GSnail! I absolutely loved everything, it was so thoughtful and sweet!
This wrapping paper is just adorable! I absolutely love it, and I was so excited opening it!
Inside there was an oven mitt! But just not any oven mitt, but one with Stephanie Clearwater's sweet face on it! I had said that she was my favourite Sylvanian, so it was so sweet of GSnail to do this!
(I forgot to take a picture of the outside, but it was very cool!) Look at the little doodle by GSnail, it looks amazing! (and it's a very sneaky thing, I didn't suspect anything at this point! XD)
The oven mitt was stuffed with things! All in the cute little wrappers! The candy was really delicious, one of tem had pecans and caramel and the other had mint, delicious and gone already! ^^
Say hello to little Ambrose! ❤ Isn't he just adorable?! I love him so much, thank you GSnail! I will work on getting him his family because he is a cutie that deserves it!
I also got these cool cookie cutters! I assume they are at least, because I have never seen anything like it, but if they are cookie cutters I adore them and will use them a lot! There are so many of them too!
I also got many little miniatures! They are all so lovely!
Here's what's in it! All is great size for Sylvanians, and the phone is so dainty, I think it looks better than the SF phone. I love the mirror, and the toaster too!
These jars are unbelievably cute though! ❤
And this food processor is wonderful too! :)
Thank you so much GSnail, I am so happy with all of these things. :)
