Cass at That Old House

Love your wooden treasures. I remember when I learned what Treen meant -- when I first visited a back-in-the-woods antiques place called The Treen Shop, near Pittsburgh.
Gone now, sadly.

Love the carved figures!


Oh yes, thanks for the cup of tea! May I help yu a bit with your collection? The red wooden horse is from Sweden, from a region called Dalarna, it's north of Stockholm. So these horses are also called Dalarna horses.


Love the "Treen!" I've never heard that before. Wish I could be there to share a cup of tea with you & talk about your treasures.

We still share cups of tea - though not face-to-face now. The treen collection (I'd never heard that term either) is wonderful. So eclectic! I wish I could see the little dollie next to the tallest Don Quixote figures in the back. She is sort of hidden. She looks so sweet. Glad you are able to get back to some clearing up and once that's done, I imagine you'll be heading to the antiques arcade...: ) Ardi

Those little Dalarna ("Dala") horses are irresistable. They are still made, but lots of regions which were famous for their wood carvers have moved on to other sources of income. The covered box is probably Norwegian, and I think the carved boots are from the Saami culture of northern Scandinavia. It's a charming collection!


I just made a batch of pumpkin scones with cream cheese icing so I'll be right over!
