Adding folk florals to spring

While browsing the images on one of my favorite art blogs, Mary Quite Contrary, I came across this picture from the book Folk Art and Folk Artists in Hungary By Gink K├íroly (Published 1968 by Corvina Press). I have a great appreciation for folk art, from the intricately embroidered clothing to the delicately hand painted tole serving platters. The time and energy that goes into something with that much detail and beauty is impressive. While, the photo above is slightly too much floral, what better time than spring to work a few folksy floral pieces into your wardrobe. Here are my folk picks for spring!
