In a little family workshop in Kingston, Ontario, the wonderful wooden creations of Re-wood Toys are lovingly hand-made.
What first drew me to Re-wood Toys was the lovely selection of teething necklaces that didn’t look like teethers on a string! With my little Cub teething, everything is in […]
Three sisters, Sarah, Robin, and Claire, grew up playing on imaginary battlements and going on adventures on their family’s 2½ acre wooded property.
Sarah, the one who does ‘pretty much everything’ at SnapdragonFortress, is an artist, writer, toy-maker and mama. She lives in […]
