Spring means new life

Suddenly the sound of music could be heard.
 Angels started to sing.
 A new born babe had been born.
 A very special little babe.

This beautiful nativity scene will bring joy into your home this Christmas season.

The Cloak

The snow on the rangers is still evident
So a cloak is needed when going outside

The Love of Colour

My dear daughter has just opened an Etsy shop
This is one of her lovely origami flowers
And her peg gnome
And a beautiful crown for a Prince or princess

Do pop over and say hi by clicking her Etsy shop here

Leaving the nest

While making this Mother and her babies
I was somehow reminded of the words
About children from Kahlil Gibran

"You are the bows from which your
Children as living arrows are sent forth"

Here I feel Mother is telling her children that it will be soon time to fly
To leave and venture out into the world
One does the very best one can for ones children
Hoping that they go swift and far in life, ( Just like arrows)

The Bee Child

What a delight
We kept bees for 15 years
I was inspired to make this mixed media creation
A Waldorf knitted doll, with a straw hat, there is a bee on her hat
I think she is a sweetie
She is standing on a little wooden stump
A Straw beehive, with wool bees on it
And the base is wire and grass (fake) with wool bees
It measures approx 11inches by five inches

New Zealand the land of Sheep and Shepards

Shepard's are always busy looking after the sheep
And we have a fair few sheep in New Zealand
I can look out my window 
And see the neighbors sheep and baby lambs
Heaps of inspiration there

Have a wonderful weekend

I would like you to meet Lawrence

I was so excited to meet Lawrence at the train Station
I handed him a box of Organic chocolates
We munched on them during our ride home
I introduced  him my Elf boy
They sat together by the fire sipping cocoa
What tales Lawrence told, of his long trip from Pennsylvania

To see where he  immigrated from  Camphill Village Kimberton Hills

Gnome wands

I was trying to think of what young boys might like to wave around at a fair
And I came up with this idea
Felt gnomes with rainbow yarn and felt balls to flick
Boys can swizz those balls around real fast
And they will not come undone ha, ha
I am very pleased with the result

The Little Owl

A Little owl flew into my home yesterday
It has been raining for days here
So I placed it in a wee cage
And when the sun comes out again and it stops raining
I will release it.

Love and Light  Marie
