Post of the week: Making a home for the fairies

Post of the Week

I love finding the perfect post of the week as I feel i am sharing treasures. Thank you Notes from Home for providing this weekly blog promopt and link up! 

Last week I featured nurtursestore and the wonderful crafting  that can be done on a budget. Today I would like to introduce you to another blogger who absolutely makes the best of the resources she has to hand. Christine really engages her children in the natural world, a world of walks, gardening, creativity, crafting and storytelling and she shares this on her blog and writes so well I often feel very moved and inspired by her. Her photos are also stunning.

Materialism does not feature with Chris she engages her children through talking, playing, making and imagining. Wondeful. Do take a look at her blog Thinly Spread

The post I am featuring is about an aftenoon Chris spent recently with her daughter making homes for the fairies. They sat int he garden painting little houses onto stones for the fairies. Using acrylic paints they painted in two colours, one for the house and one for the roof. They allowed this to dry completely before adding details The stones would later be varnished.

Chris got this idea from a library book…what a great budgeter she is…. free craft material and the library too!

Do pop over and have a look at her lovely blog.
