September already? The summer seems to have flown by…
We’ve had a good summer here, and so as the weather slowly creeps towards autumn I look forward to the crisp mornings, warm sunny days, and cool nights that come this month and next. And let’s not forget the apples, pears and pumpkins that will be […]
Summer is now in full swing and trees form an integral part of a child’s day outdoors…they provide shade, are to be climbed, provide homes for backyard gnomes, fairies and elves, house bird nests and maybe even a family of raccoons and their branches are made to be swung from.

I’m a big fan of wool diaper covers.

Beautiful wooden toys finished to a warm gleam with a natural beeswax polish…
I was completely smitten with this collection of three woodland animals offered by the Canadian woodworking team of Chris and Laura at The Wood Garden. No paints or stains are used on […]
I came across these wonderful little felt animals while browsing through Etsy some time ago, and thought they were just too great not to share! Of course the tiny mouse caught my eye…
But the possum, sheep and ferret were equally as sweet.
