Finally after all that sleeping with their fingers crossed my jammers got the snow they'd longed for!
On Friday we woke to whiteness and quietness and a bonus day off school. After checking on the feathered and furry friends and digging out the sledge they wanted to go and play.Emily Button and Vanilla got their first ride in a sledge. A rather grand contraption, I thought they looked quite royal with their toy car seat placed on the sledge!
Last time we had proper snow was when we lived here
and all the locals made a fantastic giant sized snowman and caterpillar I blogged about here.
Now we are lucky that at the top of our 'new' road is a roman amphitheatre - perfect for sledging.
And finally the obligatory snowman.
I've made use of the indoor time to make some more cushions.
Vintage zoo print fabric, very old I think. I backed them in some vintage mustard velvet and trimmed with grey polka dots. One for Custard Hall and one for De Danann tomorrow.Meanwhile the jammers were brilliant at entertaining themselves. when all is quiet I let them get on with it and don't interfere. When I did eventually venture upstairs they had made a hotel under a bed and the toys were all checked in at the desk and snuggled down for the night.
I know I keep saying it but I just love this kind of play!
Yesterday we took a trip to Sherborne for a spot of hospital visiting.These icicles caught my eye.
I did manage a quick scoot round the shops and picked up this half price toadstool arrangement. I knew it would be perfect for the hedgie house!
I shall leave you with my latest addition to my unit at the De Danann Centre...
The Cath Kidston make to follow in a day or two.
