 H loves her new wooden building blocks which her older sister and brothers have been cutting and sanding for her. The wood comes from our garden and I have to say the blocks are lovely to handle. I try to either make toys for H or buy from Etsy when possible, I strongly believe in supporting small sellers.

Just right for a bear family to move into.

I stumbled over this vintage dollhouse on Etsy, when I saw it I knew it would be perfect for a little bear family to move into. The house needed some love and care, so my oldest daughter and I started to paint and stick a new floor into the all rooms. The bear house (which we have now officially named it) is meant for my youngest daughter H when she is older. I try to buy second-hand toys as much as I can, you can tell that these toys have had a life and oozes of charm and soul. The wooden bears were picked up on Ebay for a little sum. Now I will furnish the house bit by bit with furniture just right for bears. I am sure that the house will be treasured and played with for hours to come. Have a great Easter!

Here is a photo of our Easter nature table.

Now it is Fastelavn it is a Danish tradition, which I loved as a child. It is a day where the kids dress up and we eat fastelavns buns and hit a wooden barrel filled with sweets. It is a celebration with reminds us that spring is coming.

Happy New Year to you all, I hope you have a wonderful holiday!
This is a photo of our new advent calendar, I took inspiration from a photo I saw on pinterest and just had to try out. All the drawings are based on nature and the outdoors and although it did take quite long to cut out, it was very exciting when it was all finished and the kids could open a window every day in December. It did really brighten up our dinning room, which we needed in this very dark month of December.
I have included a photo of our winter tabel and I love the purple trees.

I have constructed this nature table from a seat of an Ikea stool cut in half and painted.
