The decoration job is almost done. Only thing missing now is the outdoor lights.
My nisse collection is mostly placed in our reading room this year. About thirty years of nisse creations are assembled. Nisses like company.
They usually live in a barn (read: attic), but by juletime they are all over the place.
Last year the nisse family occupied the living room. Darling daughter now has used the trunks for moving goods.
How young we once were. These nisse mom and dad have found new homes. Most fun is creating.
The nisse grandmom I made of cernite and wool.
Her skirt is my old eskmo hood..
I made this pair for my Mom some 10-15 years ago. They have a wonderful Christmas home in Sauda.
The moral in the Children's TV show "Christmas on Blue mountain" is that the blue and the red nisses are of equal worth and must learn to share and live in peace.
Serina has made at least ten of ten nisse assembly. Some mineater are elsewhere. My Mom has knitten three and porcelain painted three.
The nisse in command has a sweater that My Mom knitted for me at the age of 2. Serina wore it for one winter, and then on a nisse craft evening the jumper became the nisse. .

On the barn is nissen

På låven sitter nissen med sin julegrøt, On the barn is nissen with his Julegrøten,
Men nissen, se han truer med sin store skje: But nissen, see he threatens his store happen:
Men nissefar, han er en liten hissigpropp, But Nissefar, he is a little spitfire,
