LOST AND FOUND: HIMMELITAIVAS

In Finland these fragile straw mobiles are called 'Himmeli' or 'Olkihimmeli,' & in Sweden 'Oro'/'halmkronorna'.  Many other regions throughout Northern & Central Europe also have their version of the himmeli. They range from a simple straw design to an elaborate array of geometric shapes adorned with feathers, paper flowers, & sometimes candles. Traditionally  hung above the dinner table to ensure that next year's rye crop would be plentiful, today they are often used as Christmas decor.
