There are two things that really catch my attention and amaze me. Nature and children.
Nature... well, it is pretty obvious why.
Children... they are clever and amusing.
I like to observe how they learn develop and how their mind works.
There hasn’t been much activity here the past few weeks due to moving. My blog has been integrated into the shop by Heyme to make it more cohesive. The move took place about a months ago and there have been a few posts since then. If you are still interested in getting updates from the shop and keeping up with my finds, please subscribe by e-mail. You can find the subscription box on the right hand side of the new blog which is still hosted on a wordpress platform.

Red cardinals are beautiful birds and they are always associated with winter and Christmas.
This red cardinal costume was originally made as a custom order for a Christmas play last year. Since then I received several enquiries and orders so I put it in the shop and now it is available as a costume set but also separately just the mask and the wings.
High quality knitted baby overalls, toddlers’ clothes and women’s accessories from Ingugu.
Ingugu uses alpaca wool which is warmer than sheep wool and is an ideal substitute for those who suffer sheep wool allergy. Alpaca wool is soft and does not cause allergies which makes it an excellent material for baby clothing. It comes in many natural colors and therefore it doesn’t necessarily need coloring.
Just a tail – any kind of animal tail – can make a difference. It does help imaginative play and can be worn anywhere . Not a full costume but enough to turn a child into … this time …. a fox. This one I found in the museum’s garden.
