Where is my Babe ?

There she is, found safe and sound
Sometimes we get lost, and it is always nice to remember our dear Mother
And how she held us close to her heart

Living in an Enchanted world

I am so lucky to live in an enchanted world
I am not exposed to a lot of noise and busyness
I hear bird song and am surrounded by Mother Nature
Who is just my best friend ever!
This gives me the time and space to create
I am in the process of putting together a book proposal about my art
I wonder if you would read it, I think I would

Beautiful Handwork

This little fairy comes out only in Autumn, to shake the trees gently so that their leaves may drift to the ground, to whisper to the squirrels to gather their nuts, and to bring vivid reds, golds, oranges and greens to our landscape.

She is entirely handmade, in the Steiner style of Sally Mavor's 'Felt Wee Folk', and created using wool felt and roving. Her skirt is made of flower petals, and her tunic displays fine hand embroidery. Her fiery orange hair is topped by a little acorn cap, and she measures 12cm from the top of her head to her gold silk slippers.
 This delightful little fairy lives close to the water's edge, and is sitting here idly on a warm summer's day with her toes in the water.

Thoughts on keeping things in the cupboard

When I first started this blog, I did not think that anyone would be interested at all in what I do
and my country life style.
I realize that it was no use creating art and keeping it in the cupboard, (Which was what I used to do)
Why not share it with the world, why not pass it on to others, why not give some to others for free,
And why not see if anyone may want to buy some
It is sometimes a bit scary to (Put yourself out there)
As you are putting your soul out there, and that means you have to open the door a bit, and let people see inside
Have the courage to open the door and as you let others have a peep into your world
You get to see into a  world that is full of amazing things, where  wonderful colors and warmth abound
I have all  of you in my life now and how very richer I am through it all
Just by opening the cupboard door a little

Love and light  Marie

Old Fashioned Singing Games

This delightful children's book is in excellent condition
It was published in 1983, some 29 years ago by Four Winds Press

The original illustrations, with accompanying verses and instructions were discovered by Dorothy's daughter, Carol Odell, in an old family trunk

Some history....
The singing games were collected and illustrated by Dorothy Fuller, she and her two sisters traveled through England and America in the early 1900s singing folk songs at many theaters and universities and teaching the games

This is a delightful collection of twelve best loved old-fashioned children's singing games contains verses,music and simple step-by-step instructions on how to play each game

Exquisitely illustrated with delicate water-colors depicting scenes from the games. this book will delight. Older readers will recall with nostalgia such favorites as "When I was a young girl"
"The Mulberry Bush" "Looby Loo" "Ring a Ring of Roses"

It measures 10 inches by 7 inches

There is a tiny tear on the back dust cover measuring about 1 inch 
It is for sale in my Etsy shop, do click here to view more pictures, it has the advantage of the music also

Love and light  Marie
