Into the Woods

Recently, a certain young man of my acquaintance had a rather important birthday, and I wanted to give him a gift that would be special and lasting. I love it so much I was tempted to keep it (but of course I didn't)! I'm looking forward to playing with it though, with the little dude.

(picture heavy post follows)

This is the Play Forest Island (enchanted, isn't it?) with all its magical inhabitants:


As you can see, there is a hollow tree stump, where a fox and a chipmunk live...



and a sacred hill with its magic tree, and bubbling spring...


and sometimes the chipmunk lives in this little old tree stump, near his friend the deer, who lives on the hill...


while down in the meadow, a fluffy sheep grazes beside the stream where Paddle Wagtail the white goose lives...


I would say this is a pretty idyllic little play forest, just waiting for adventures and fantasies to be imagined.

This happy dream brought to you by Eves Little Earthlings. Everything is handmade from re-purposed wool items or hand knitted and embroidered and embellished.
