I found A setting up the felt finger puppet ladies and girls to have a tree block tea party.  And I have some ideas for teacups!

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!

These beautiful, floaty, silk butterfly wings arrived today from a cool Etsy shop called Ziezo.  My daughter absolutely loves them!

They blow so nicely in the wind.

Then I got our their homemade ribbon sticks, which I thought would work really nicely on such a windy day!

Gnome Homes

We started making these gnome homes in the winter when there wasn’t much reason to go outside in the cold.  We preferred staying inside and being hermits, so I thought this would give us a good reason to go out.

Once in a while we go visit them and fix up their little homes from the damage done by the weather.  This time, we made them beds of moss and little canopies of ivy.

We bring them little treasures, too.  Sometimes we bring them treasures of glass marbles. This time we brought wooden beads.  Usually the gnomes are little sticks because we don’t want to leave our real gnomes outside.  Sometimes we bring the real ones out for a visit.  You can see them having a rest here on the little moss bed, in the shade of the ivy leaf canopies.

I saw this awesome idea on the Twig and Toadstool about how to make leaf crowns!

Pick a bunch of leaves, break off a small piece of stem about 1 to 2 inches long.  Then overlap the leaves a bit, and using the stem, push it through both leaves to hold them together.

Do this for each leaf until your crown is big enough to fit.  Attach it together at the end the same way you did for the rest of the crown.  My girls felt like leaf princesses!

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!
