Hello friends. I thought I would share some random photos taken while I wandered about the house one day last week...
Bee and honey. This was all Chessa's idea, a craft she thought up for herself. She put yellow wool in jar, drew a little bee on paper and cut it out, attached bee to string and suspended it in the jar by closing the lid on the string. I though it was cute.
Hollyhocks are blooming. And finding their way indoors, usually floating in a bowl or basin of water. The girls have also been making dyes from the petals, which they then use to dye little fabric squares for their dolls.
Little girl dressed up as a knight.
Little girl's playstand fort.
Inside little girl's special space.
Little girl's special friends.
Pasture and stable for the animals.
Little girl's clever wagon for the family.
Another family traveling about.
Building materials of the very best kind.
Chloe's handsewing. Her dolls are opening a little shop. She is making a pinafore :)
Sometimes it's a castle, sometimes it's a village, or a town...
The beauty of wet-on-wet watercolor painting. Chessa's paintings always feel so alive to me.
(We have still been not at all consistent with our paintings days. I really hope to do more during this coming school year.)
Girl with glue on her face. (If you looked closely you could see...)
Girl loving kitty cat.
And suddenly I realized how it was that I ended up walking around the house taking pictures. Because really I was going to sit down to knit, but then discovered this big orange cat in the chair...
Hope you are all enjoying happy days in your home!
