We have a nature table to celebrate the change of the seasons. Â The girls and I finally decorated our winter scene this past weekend. Â Of course we always have good intentions of having it decorated as the seasons roll over, but it seems we are seasonally delayed! Â Better late than never I suppose.
The knitted gnome and the moon house are from a lovely local Steiner shop. Â I made the winter gnome who I think looks rather like a Tomten.
The girls thought he looked like a Tomten too, so hence the brown fox in front of the moon house. Â For those of you who aren’t familiar with a Tomten, he is a delightful character from books written by Astrid Lindgren. Â Oh and lets not forget the red chook. Â Tenneille thought it essential that the winter scene needed to include one. Â As for the nature table itself, it is a piece of reclaimed red gum I found at an op-shop a few years ago. Â It seems very fitting for its purpose.
I find our nature table rather enchanting and I love how proud the girls are in their decorating abilities. Â I love how it connects us with the season we are experiencing while in the comfort of our home. Â Â Jacinta x
