Felted Succulent Delights

I’ve been having so much fun coming up with a line of felted succulent plants for The Magic Onions Shop.

Don’t you just love succulents?

Strange, because there was a time when I didn’t love them at all… I thought they were ugly and prickly and I far preferred roses.

But, succulents must be an acquired taste as they might just be my most favorite pants now.

They come in such wonderful shapes and sizes… and colors of course… all shades of greens, yellows and silvers.

Here is my collection that you can find in The Magic Onions Shop…

Fairies in Residence

Kitty and her friend were struggling to come up with something fun to do.

“There’s nothing to do!” they exclaimed.

“Oh, well” I said… why don’t you go into my studio and see if there is anything there that inspires you.”

Off they went.

3 house later, this is what they had made… the most delightful fairy house! Just look at the little details.

California Dreaming

We had a glorious morning surfing.

We got to the beach early when our shadows were long and the gulls were warming their cold night feathers in the early morning glow from the sun.

The new sky was impossibly blue and the water was warm and inviting.

Kitty is a cautious surfer and prefers not to stand up unless the wave feels ‘totally right’. Teddy, on the other hand, thinks he’s in line for Wold Cup Surfer of the year. It’s like he was born to surf.

We all agreed… there’s nothing more invigorating than the beach in the early morning.

And we also realized how much we will miss this beautiful part of our lives if we do follow or plans to move away next year. How could we not miss this with all of our hearts?

I’m thankful to have these beautiful photos to help me remember these breathtaking early morning surfing adventures with my precious family.

Blessings and magic,

Monday Magic and Favorite Places to Share

Morning Beautiful!

I hope you had a most wonderful weekend.

We made magical clay toadstools for our fairy garden and I’ve shared our easy DIY tutorial on the Fairy Gardens blog.

You’ll have to pop on over there and make some for yourself.  I have shared a few nifty tricks on how to make these amazing toadstools look like the real things. They are the perfect additions to your fairy garden. They also look magical placed in your regular garden too… they sure do bring out your gardens ‘enchanted’ side. But they also look wonderful placed on a shelf or table in your home as indoor decoration. In fact, I have a feeling that, like us, you’ll be making quite a few for all over the place!

They are crazy-cute!

And, while you are there, have a look at all the enchanting fairy gardens in the Fairy Garden contest and the cute goodies in the Fairy Garden Shop.

 

I also have some more beautiful new bloggy finds to share today :

 

This is YUM… take it from us, this breakfast will be requested again (and again and again) !

And here is some for eye-candy for you… come and see life in Norway.

Enjoy these beautiful spaces and let them know that you have visited.

 

Here’s a quote for the week, from the venerable Thich Nhat Hanh.

 

Understanding and Love are not two separate things, but just one. To develop understanding, you have to practice looking at all living beings with the eyes of compassion. When you understand, you cannot help but love. And when you love, you naturally act in a way that can relieve the suffering of people.

 

Blessings and magic,

Donni
