My Dala Horses


We recently returned from a wonderful trip through Scandinavia. Whist in Sweden I bought these gorgeous little Dala horses.

Prior to my trip I was unaware of how popular the dala horses were in Sweden. Living in times when every thing is so mass produced, It was fabulous to see that so many of these horses are still being handcrafted even today.

I just love the simple lines and natural tones of Scandinavian design and now I want an entire  collection of these gorgeous horses.

I think what I enjoy most about travelling is the unexpected joy of new discoveries and experiences that we bring home with us.
