Think WB was guessing what it was that caught your attention. Maybe you just meant the stamp itself?

I'm sober, honest I am!!Big Grin

Your title said it was a coincidence, I kinda thought the wavy lines in the cancel looked a little like a meandering path leading up to the building in the background.


...and I still say I'm as sober as the morning dew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

re: Interesting Coincidence With Stamp From Sweden

Oh, the fact that it's a Christmas stamp?

Well, I collect Christmas stamps and appreciate you posting it, because to be honest, I very likely wouldn't have recognized it as one. Now I know.Thumbs Up

I wonder now if he's making some sort of a Christmas decoration, maybe a wreath?

According to the caption in Scott, they are putting up a sheaf for the birds.

A sheaf is a bundle of grain, so it's a bird feeder.

Almost looks like they've suspended something up from the top of a door frame and their husking or stripping something off. I have NO CLUE what they're doing

Without doing any googling, it looks like they are making some kind of sweep like in a broom as if to sweep snow or something. The child may be holding additional bristles. Or, maybe a huge torch.

So this is Almqvist, by Holmqvist, putting up a sheaf of twigs (sort of), and qvist means twig.
