Here are some Etsy shops I just totally love, and like to spend time just looking at the beautiful things they make!

German Dolls

Pocket Dolls, set of 6 germandolls, waldorf toy

I have loved the dolls made by Ulla Seckler at GermanDolls for a couple years now.  Sometimes when we’re bored, my daughter and I sit and just look at all the dolls in her shop!  I especially love the pocket dolls!

She also does larger dolls:

14 15 inch Waldorf doll clothes, Bunny Pocket Dress and Miniature Doll

Another favorite shop of mine is Alkelda Dolls .  Ok, so I like dolls!
Check out this totally cute little baby sleeping in its bed!

The girls had great fun drawing inside the windows and doors and coloring their houses!

Marble Painting

This is so fun!  You need paints, paper, a tray and marbles.

Put a piece of paper in a tray and squirt some paint on the paper.  Then put some marbles in and move the tray around so they roll through the paint.  See what work of art you end up with!

We’ve been collecting lavender to dry out and use to make A’s birthday cupcakes.  The girls enjoyed picking off all the little lavender flowers and putting them in jars.


And some pouring!

    We spent about an hour or more doing this, and it smelled so wonderful!  I’ll try and remember to post the recipe to the cupcakes and maybe photos when I make them!  I hope our lavender is drying out nicely!
