...dala horse...

....the swedish dala horse...these little wooden decorative creatures are so fun.  Traditionally carved by woodcutters & soldiers back in the day from leftover wood.  They would carve these during the long winter months for the children.  They are often painted bright red, but I like the black ones too.  Have a great weekend...{images via erica knits & ingebretsens}
