Please support my June Magic Sponsors by browsing through their beautiful shops.
A hearty welcome to a new Magic Sponsor :
Whole Family Rhythms – a series of seasonal and monthly guides created and designed to help Mums (and some Dads) maintain a steady rhythm in their home. The rhythms include unstructured, child-led play both outdoors and indoors; early childhood stories and fingerplays; weekly bushwalking themes; daily art, handwork or creative projects; holistic baking and cooking recipes for the whole family as well as weekly caregiver meditations and projects. Although Whole Family Rhythms focuses primarily on the ‘early years’ the daily activities are flexible and varied enough to inspire and work for families of all ages and sizes.
And, welcome back…
NEST is such beautiful toy shop filled with stunning natural and Waldorf inspired toys. Modeled after the toy shoppes of Germany, at Nest one can find eco-friendly sustainably sourced heirloom wooden toys & beautiful and practical things for the home. They believe that living sustainably need not be a sacrifice. Fine woolens from Ruskovilla of Finland, beautifully handcrafted figures from Ostheimer of Germany, shaker boxes from Brent Rourke of Nova Scotia. Waldorf-inspired play and Waldorf toys & crafts for young and old. I’m LOVING these fun and colorful building blocks.
The Waldorf Homeschool Handbook : Whether you are just starting to homeschool, or always wanted to, imagine this for a second… You feel confident that you are doing it right. The first steps are clear and you know exactly where to find the resources and support needed to be successful. There’s no second guessing. No confusion. No lack of focus.
Without any floundering, your Waldorf homeschooling falls into place with ease, assurance and joy.
Christopherus Bookstore : We offer a variety of publications and audio downloads of interest not only to homeschoolers but to teachers and other parents too. We take a fresh and practical approach to Waldorf education (grounded in the work of Rudolf Steiner).
The Magic Onions – toys and treasures for the natural home. I make everything by hand using natural and eco-friendly materials. Bring the gorgeous texture of wool felt into your home with wonderful nature-inspired treasures like felted acorns and colorful felted garlands.
The Magic Onions has a whole range of GORGEOUS mobiles in lots of styles and colors.
Sesame Seed Designs : I turn wool and cashmere sweaters into new and beautiful creations! From super soft cashmere, baby hats to pot holders embellished with the under-represented eggplant, I try to offer something for everyone. I live in the crafty, nature-loving city of Portland, OR and when I’m not sewing or hanging out with my two daughters, I work as an environmental educator. My love for nature inspires everything I do and many of my items are embellished with embroidery and appliques inspired by the plants and animals I love.
Woolies – is the home of heirloom quality knitted and sewn stuffed animals and dolls. Using all natural materials, always. Here in the Sunny House, we are a HUGE fan of Woolies. When my daughter, Kitty, saw the Woolies Earth Ponies a few years ago, she just had-to-have-one. She saved her pocket money, did extra chores, and bought herself Coco, her beloved Earth Pony. Coco is never far from Kitty. She reads with him, sleeps with him and cuddles him often. Two years later, Coco is still just as beautiful as the day he arrived. I highly recommend these beautiful knitted toys.
Gypsy Forest : offers beautifully handcrafted goods for creative play, home, and adventuring.
