The Power of Playsilks!

Need a perfect toy for a rainy day? Just grab the basket of playsilks. What about a *quiet* toy for the doctors office? Yep...good ol' playsilks!

So wonderful for your child's imagination and one of the BEST open ended toys out there!

There is so much you can do with a playsilk.

~Use it as a sling for dolls,bears and baby fairies:)
~Use them for dress-up.
~Be a super hero with a one of a kind cape!
~They make wonderful Fairy and Dragon wings.
~Playing peek-a-boo.
~Makes juggling SUPER EASY!
~A great soother when it comes to boo-boos,naps and bedtime.
~Decorate your nature tables!

The list can go on and on... Plus they are GREAT for any age as long as you supervise the babies and wee ones:) So what are you waiting for? Get some silks and go play:)

Playscapes are F~U~N!!!

I love playing with my daughter! She is so imaginative and keeps me young at heart;) One of our favorite toys are Wool Playscapes and Silk PlaySets! We can sit for hours and have many adventures in woods full of gnomes and fairies,friendly hedgehogs named Henry and of course all our dinosaur friends:)

Even small ones love the feel of the scapes. All those textures and colors really keep them interested and happy!

If you have never played with a wool playscape or silk playset YOU SHOULD!!! They make wonderful Christmas and holidays gifts as well as special celebration and birthday presents:)

Guess who came to visit!

Well I know you all remember the tale of Mama Raccoon and her babies. If not..just read a few posts below and you will have the whole story:)

Tonight we were watching a little news before bed and I hear scratching in my Living Room closet! Thinking it was a a poor little bird who had once again lost his way I peeked. Now you all know I am VERY cautious of peeking into closets when I hear strange

Well my little raccoon babies decided to visit. I guess they just wanted to tell me they are fine and to maybe even say Thank You for letting us stay...giggles. I told them I was so happy to see them but it would be best to go outside where all good raccoons like to romp and play:) Plus I bribed them with some apples and a few sugar cookies too:) They went right into the cat carrier:D

I did not see mama anywhere at first but as soon as I put the babies on the porch there she came around the house..and I ran back in..LOL! She was not mean or nasty but you never know;)

Oh yeah..the date on pictures are wrong but my daughter thought she knew how to set everything..LOL!

Update on Baby Raccoons:)

Well..these are the last pics you will see. Mama moved them sometime today. Which is a good thing!

It was fun having them in the closet though. They purr JUST like kittens. It was so adorable.

Next step is to solve the mystery of how they got in:)

Monday, May 18, 2009

Nope..they are NOT kittens!

So I hear my hubby's toys..I mean collectibles going bonkers in our bedrooom closet. What the heck is going on in there I thought! Not thinking anything to odd would be happening I open the door and see a MAMA RACCOON!

Okaaayyy. SO, I shut the door and call hubby into the bedroom. Honey open the closet and tell me what you see...he opens the door..and says....

OH CRAP who had KITTENS in here..LOL! I said honey..they are NOT kittens they are raccoons..and there are three of them with a mama. BE CAREFUL! Mama must have decided to take a wee break at that time because she was not in there when hubby opened the door....but she is back taking care of her babies now.

So being a wildlife rehabilitator(not practicing now) I decided to let her stay for a bit. I mean she DID just give birth. However in a few days I will place a radio in front of the closet door and she will move them. Who wants a noisy nusery ..ya know;)

Good thing she cannot get out of that closet or that we need to use it on a daily basis(it's our storage closet). Lorna of course is UBER EXCITED! Even is she is not allowed to pet and play with them she still understands and thinks it is SO COOL! I do too:)

Wishing all of you a very HAPPY EARTH DAY!

Hope you are all trying to get some outdoor time! We sure have:) Lorna and I planted some flowers and made friends with some earthworms and caterpillars!

Have you hugged your caterpillars today? LOL!

Monday, April 13, 2009

Where is Lorna..LOL!

Can you find her..LOL!

Well with the picture I posted you can but when I called for her she was really smooshed down in her Fluffy Friends bin. Then of course she giggled and I found her. Kind of reminded me of that part in E.T. where he was hiding out in the closet.

Such a funny girl:)

Barefoot Birthdays is now OPEN!

This is something I have always wanted to do!

I am not fond of all the plastic stuff my daughter gets in goodies bags. I know kids like them and I did too when I was little. Until of course the goodies fell apart and/or broke which is usually when you walk in your front door. Or when you so fondly step on them on the way to the bathroom in the middle of the night...LOL!

So I did something about it and opened my own Etsy shop for party favors,decorations and more! I love that my shop uses recycled/upcycled materials for this and you can be sure they are Earth friendly!

I am SO EXCITED! Hope you can stop by soon and take a look!

Monday, April 6, 2009

My new addiction..LOL!

So..I have always wanted to dye my own playsilks! Lorna and I had a wonderful time making some! We even made some tye dye t-shirts:) You really should try it sometime.

I now have some up on my website

I wish we would have saved some though. Our weather has taken a turn for the worse and decided it was time for Winter again! BLEH!
