A new addition

Look who has joined me in my home
A lovely doll from Jennifer
What a little sweetie she is
Do pop over and look at her Etsy shop here

Mixed Media needle felt art - Child of the forest

I do not often deviate from needle felting
But thought I would play around with these trees
They are for sale,  for $25 each in my shop
Delightful wee wooden pictures

What is Mother owl looking at??

 She is looking at a tiny  baby
Clothed in  the softest finest wool
Placed there by an angel who needed to rest
She knew that the Mother owl would look after her
And keep her safe and warm
Until her return

Love and light  Marie

I do so love all your comments

Three chick's in nests

Now the one thing that I am not very good at is making chickens
You may say, well, how easy can this be Marie
But they never seem to flow the way I would like them to
But the lady who ordered them loves them and that is the main thing.

Love and light  Marie

Glimpses of my home

A few small glimpses of my home
My husband and I built it ourselves by hand, some 25 years ago

My New Zealand Shop

 Some items in my New Zealand Shop

In the next few days
the international shipping closes 
for New Zealand to send parcels overseas in time for Christmas
I have decided to close my Etsy shop, slightly early
However my New Zealand shop will be open
If you spot anything that takes your fancy, just chat to me
And we can arrange something

Saint Francis and the birds

The sun shone down into the forest
Its golden rays created a warm yellow glow around St Francis's halo
He loved to wander in the woods and feed the birds
He always carried some breadcrumbs in his pocket
He loved listening to their sweet bird song
It filled him with joy.

Cheers and happy wanderings, Marie

Owl's and owlets

The custom order brief said,  "Please make me two owls and four owlets"
So I sat down and made them, they took a lot of thought, time and energy
I went out into my garden this morning and photographed them
They make me smile

Love and light  Marie

November Giveaway

There was an icy chillness in the air
The Snow maiden walked softly over the frosty ground
She bent down and picked up an Acorn
Immediately is turned snow white in her hands
The star light glittered and sparkled on its little cap
She would protect it, until Spring came 
Then plant it deep within Mother Earth

This Giveaway is open to all global visitors
And will be drawn on 10th November

Love and light  Marie

Autumn Baskets for the fair

Autumn Baskets all ready for a Waldorf Fair next weekend

Mystery solved

The mystery is solved
The lovely lady who gave me the Angel book just contacted me
Here it is open on my bookshelf
At the page "Peace and Harmony"

"Side by side and on through time
Go Peace and harmony
And trust me when you find the one
There will the other be".

Love and light  Marie

My rural landscape

When I go for my early morning walk everyday at 5.45 with my neighbor
This is the view over the hills
