Here is our sweet little set of Wooden Ducklings to go along with our Book Nook – Have You Seen My Duckling? Just like the book, I made 1 Mama and 8 little ducklings. (Notice one curious duckling has gone off on his own!) I then made 2 clumps of reedsRead More →

It’s been a while since I shared a story from One Generation to Another. This post was first shared May 6, 2008, but since spring has graced our neck of the woods early this year, and our gardens are waking up, I thought of this. I hope you enjoy it.  So,Read More →

Imagine the delight on your children’s faces when they open this carton of eggs… and find these lovely gems inside! No, it is not a dozen hard boiled eggs, but rather a dozen Soy Crayons! It is easy to sing the praises of soy crayons; brilliant colors, smooth drawing without flaking,Read More →

I hate keeping secrets… especially exciting and happy ones.

They are expecting their first baby September 25 and weRead More →

Yesterday I made Cream Cheese Pound Cake for dessert. It has long been one of our family’s favorite. Rich and delicious, you can serve it with a glaze or with fruit, but it is plenty yummy all by itself. This recipe can be rather finicky and it is time consuming,Read More →

For anyone that blogs, especially those of us that blog almost daily, you can understand how we have a tendency to rate things in terms of “blog worthiness”. Get a new sweater for your birthday… not blog worthy. By a wool sweater at Goodwill, felt it, and turn it into a doll crib…Read More →

Britta awoke with mixed feelings. Today was St. Patrick’s Day, which meant the leprechauns would be leaving The Thicket for places unknown. “Perhaps, just perhaps”, she thought, “I may miss them just a wee bit.” But Britta was ready for the pranks to end and for order to be restoredRead More →

No, I’m not talking about books ABOUT gnomes and fairies, rather books FOR gnomes and fairies. I got the idea from Michelle. When we talked about doing The Book Nook, I told her I wanted a banner. Something that people would come to associate with this feature. Like a goodRead More →

  The orignial blog for this project can be found HERE. It contains additional photos and information. Who doesn’t like a good book? Well, gnomes love the old traditions of sitting around a campfire and telling tales of adventure and folly. But, they also like curling up in easy chair at home, inRead More →
