Wood is one of nature’s valuable gifts and usually used for furniture. Many don’t know that it was also used to keep feet stylish in the Sedestal area of
Norway. During Christmas time shoes from
Norway were decorated with colorful designs and used as containers for children’s candy or sweets. This shoe is designed as a tapered candle holder and with your favorite painted design it would make an attractive decoration to any holiday occasion.
Interesting to say the least is the Mangle Board or Mangletre. Traditional uses are for household duties as a cold iron as well as a vow of love for another. Young men were known to leave the mangle board on the door or porch of the young lady he wished to court. If the lady accepted the board by taking it inside her home, the man knew she was interested in his courtship. You can have fun with this board by using your artistic ability and painting or carving a fantastic design.
