My little indoor stage and backdrop, giving place for adventurers of Gnome Boatmen!
Gnome boatmen are made from florist wire covered in yard and wool with a bead head, an acorn cap and silk tunic:-)
With it's soft sky blue roof and Snowdrops on the door, this little cottage has the feeling of
a gentle Spring breeze & early morning songbirds singing~
|A troop of Spring gnomes is being coming for what is just around the corner!|
|A Tomten and Fox set is also coming to life in the little workshop!|
|Tree of light made from dead manzanita limb which I put in the Christmas|
tree stand. The limb is about 5 ft tall. Everyone loved this!
|I added a lot of evergreens everywhere including the ceiling lights, winter greens and lots of bows|
|The mantle was crowded with mushroom homes, deer, fairy houses, greens, berries and lights|
|This nice large home with lots of character has a nice new little Sparrow Kitchen!|
|One more Fairy Chateau !|
|Friendly little Hedgie for bedside books:-)|
|Friendly little Fox for bedside books !|
|My first Willodel Shelf !|
|This little guy , who seems to be called Bodin, was an outcome of the cold rainy weather and indoor work commenced. It was so wonderful to get all my wool bits out!|
|This is one of my functional birdhouses, the bottoms come off for cleaning and the holes are the right size for common songbirds|
|I have been making these for various windfall woods for 30 years, this is Aspen.|
The birds love them and move right in!
|My favorite time of year! "visions of pumpkins and persimmons in my mind" :-)|
|Wee folk camping in their tiny homes in their Autumn woods!|
|Cones of all kinds are always a great joy, especially for the holiday decor.. tiny rosehips that grow wild are wonderful for decoration, displays and wee folk fare..|
|And have found a cozy home at Willodel!|
