Stamp of the Day: Dalslandsstuga

In honor of EHs and JHs new house, here comes a real Dalslandsstuga (Cottage from Dalsland, a Swedish province in western Sweden), as a Swedish stamp. Our ancestors, from Ed in Dalsland, lived in timber houses like this. Note the tony windows and standing timber. Enjoy your house!

I like this and probably JH even more, because it´s more common with old red houses where he comes from, Hälsingland in the north of Sweden.

We got ourselves a brickhouse this time, but our country house is red. Falu-red actually.

I meant tiny windows, not tony ones!
