Waldorf Holiday Fair

We attended a local Waldorf's school Holiday Fair. It was great. I think Violet will enjoy it even more next year when she can actually sit for some of the puppet shows. She did love the open play room of course! The school is so beautiful and inspiring. We are so fortunate to have one nearby that we can visit.

First Snow

We had our first snow a couple weeks ago. It was so beautiful. We have had a mild start to the Winter. I think we are finally going to have a short Winter this year. We are due for it. Although I am sure we will still have plenty of snow. We are looking to start a few Winter Solstice traditions. Any ideas, I'd love to hear how you all celebrate it!

Handmade Swaps are Complete

I participated in 3...yes 3 Holiday Swaps this year. Sometimes I am a bit of an overachiever, but I simply couldn't pick. Two of them are for Violet. They are part of a Stocking Stuffer Swap. I really wanted her stocking to be filled with all sorts of creative handmade goodies. The other was an altered cabinet card that I made sent with a few goodies. Here are some pics. Enjoy!

Our Woodstove is finally installed. We have been talking about it for the past couple of years. It took time and patience and repair to our current chimney and a new liner. But it's done!!!! And we love it.
