Once just a child's toy, the iconic Swedish Dala Horse practically screams Scandinavia with its amazing folk art appeal.

For me the Dala Horse reminds me of many happy days of my childhood spent with my Swedish godmother and her family. Traditionally these wooden horses were painted on orange-y red. These days you can find them painted with just about any color -- like this lovely blue. The harness and saddle are painted in traditional designs in red, white, yellow, and light blue. How much I would love one to remember my Swedish godmother and my Swedish grandmother.
