oh, the houses we’ve seen

While we love our current little house, we have been looking for the right home for our (larger than we were originally expecting!) family for years.  These photos were taken at a house we visited this week.  There was quite a bit to see:  from fabulous wallpaper and a phone booth under the back stairs, to a smoke house, and bamboo gone wild.

I’ll keep you posted.

p.s.  there will be another giveaway this weekend!

waldorf dolls
Made in the Waldorf tradition little jenny wren dolls celebrate the spirit and innocence of childhood. My dolls begin as an idea, a smile , a piece of cotton fabric and a large handful of soft creamy coloured wool fleece. It is a pleasure for me to work with the natural fibres and craft something that comes from what nature has provided.  You can join me in little jenny wren’s playroom to keep up to date with what is happening in my studio as well as dolly previews and give aways. New dolls are put in my etsy shop each weekend.
