Stuffed with white NZ sheep's wool
And Hand dyed NZ wool yarn to tie it all together
No plastic fantastic here ha ha

Found in my shop

Walnut crafts

Walnut crafts...
Sometimes the walnut shells from my tree are a bit dirty
And are not able to be cleaned to place treasures inside
So I have painted these ones white
Covered a small bead with wool for the hair
And hot glued a ball of wool for the body
Then I hot glued another walnut
For the cradle cover..
A nice little Christmas morning stocking fuller treat.

Love and light  Marie

I am now on my Summer vacation here in New Zealand
So I have closed my Etsy shop, as international shipping can not be guaranteed to reach you for Christmas.
However I can still ship nationally from my

Summer Nature Table

I was looking through some older photos
This is one of my Summer nature table 4 years ago..
Some are my treasures and some bought.....

This is my summer story. It was summertime, the dragon flies were busy flying around , the princesses looked out over the blue lake and watched as Thumbelina sailed on the sparkling waters in her waterlily pad boat. Standing on the shore next to the pink peace stone stood a little summer green gnome. On the far shore , surrounded by flowers and a dove, stood a little blue flower child, she was wearing a beautiful cloak of red roses. How happy they all were to see the sun and to be outside by Mother Earth.. under the blue summer skies.

Love and light Marie.

Gathering in

I do believe that in some parts of the world
Autumn has arrived..
Here is a little verse and wool art for you for Autumn..

Gathering In

It is early Autumn
It is a time of gathering in
Gathering in all the memories from the year that has been
Letting those golden Autumn leaves fall on to you
So you can hold them close to your heart
So you can take all the positive things that have happened to you
and the ones that where not so good
You can take those memories and like the storing of the Autumn harvest
You bring them into your soul
Then comes Winter time
You can think about things that helped you
Things that you need to do or to change
So that come Spring you will know what new seeds
to plant in your garden. 
 
Love and light  Marie

Star paper making

My nieces had never made paper stars
So following Sarah's video from Bella Luna Toys.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ua__xf55z1Q

We made these.

If you live in NZ you can buy 100 kite paper sheets at
http://www.gopher.co.nz/hastings/art-supplies/humanity-books-and-fine-art-supplies

If you live overseas, you can buy the kite paper on Etsy.

The children thought they were just wonderful, to make as a birthday gift for their friends, they took them all home.

Softly softly

Softly, softly creeps Spring

Softly, softly creeps Spring
Her soft warm colors are a delight to the eye
The beautiful pale green buds unfolding
The slender grasses reaching for the sun
The soft pink and white blossom
Their petals falling on you as you walk through the park
You are bathed in pale pink
Your hair is adorned with pink and white blossom
You tread softly on Mother Earth
She is waking up from the long Winters sleep
You are waking up
You are ready to greet the Spring

I heard a whisper

I heard a tiny whisper in the forest
I turned and spotted this wee fellow
He said he was very happy with me
For providing all that was needed
Loving care so trees could grow
To shelter the birds
He said he often looked skyward
And was amazed at the amount
Of birds that visited my home
He told them to tell others to come

Love and light  Marie
