    1. Thank you and Happy Blogmas too. I just checked out your holiday decor and I love it. I also have little gnomes around, they remind me of old Swedish grandpa’s from the old country. My grandfather was from Sweden and came here to America back when he was in his 30’s I believe. Sadly I never got to meet him because he passed years before I was born. My mother’s side (Swedish side) would continue with his traditions though. Now when I see little gnomes or make them myself I think of the grandfather I never met. You did a great job decorating and your tree is so beautiful.

    O my goodness, you even make gingerbread dough from the scratch? I can only imagine how delicious your house smells. My mother in law usually sends us a few kilos of ready made dough from Latvia and we love baking the cookies every year 🎄😊❄️ your ginger bread houses look quite divine 😀

    1. That is so sweet, I bet your cookies are really pretty. It does make the house smell so good. I used to buy premade box kits but no one ate them so I started making them by scratch. Now everyone breaks pieces off to eat with hot cocoa once I am done that is.
