A Giveaway!

Earlier this summer the kids and I began working on our first fairy garden and gnome home.  We started out by visiting our local garden center.  I thought we would be able to pick up a few accessories to get us started.  I was completely shocked by how expensive fairy garden items are!  I decided there was no way I could afford $6 for one tiny birdbath.  We left and headed straight to the craft store.  I picked up a variety pack of Sculpey oven-bake clay and we've been creating accessories ever since. 
For the past several years I've had a bit of an under-the-table cake decorating business.  Working with all that fondant, really made it easy to transition over to clay!  I started each of my kids out with some basics and now every few days they come to me asking for something else.  I pull out the clay for myself and play-doh for them and we create away!
I've been enjoying creating fairy and gnome garden accessories for them so much, that I have decided to offer a set to you!  For this give-away I am offering a table, two chairs, and all the accessories needed for a fairy tea party.
I am partnering with my dear friend Nicole over at My Rhythm and Rhyme in Motherhood for this first one.  She and I have been friends for several years - we met through a mom's group at our church.  She is the one that first introduced me to Waldorf Education and has been such an inspiration to me as we've incorporated more Waldorf into our home and lifestyle.  Plus, once a week she has a few other sweet ladies and myself over for wine and a chance to connect.  Basically, she rocks and I'm going to miss her like crazy when we move. 
We will each give away one set to one of our followers.  Please head over to her site for another chance to win!


The food, plates, and cups are made with Sculpey oven-bake clay.  The table and chairs are made from sticks we gathered on some of our hikes.  They are hand cut and sanded.  The chairs have a heart wood-burned on the back of them.  The table is held together with hot glue.  I gave the table and chairs a light coat of poly-urethane to help with weather proofing. 

I am so excited to offer you all this first giveaway!  And yes, it is open world-wide!
