Needle Felted Pumpkin Mouse : www.theMagicOnions.com/shop/

Pumpkin Mice and Butternut Bunnies

There are new little critters in the shop this week… pumpkin mice and butternut bunnies!

In the past, my mice and bunnies have always been white. Then the other day, Teddy asked why he can’t have a brown mouse? “Hmmmm,” I thought… “You can!”

I had great fun experimenting with the best colors for these new little guys.

So, Magic Friends… here is the new range in bunnies and mice, just in time for Halloween and Thanksgiving fun!

And some cute little bunny buts…

All of these mice and bunnies are available in my shop, Fairyfolk. The have been needle felted and wet felted to be sturdy and robust, suitable for all kinds of play and made to last. Kitty has had her little bunny for 3 years and she’s still as beautiful as the day she hopped into our home. You can see her here in this photo I recently took of Kitty’s new room…

So, if you little Loved-One is in need of a friend this Fall… these bunnies and mice are looking for good homes.

There are lots of other nature and Waldorf inspired toys in my Fairyfolk shop, so pop on over for a look.

Nature Inspired Jewelry

I have been working on growing my jewelry line in my shop. I love to wear jewelry that looks like it come from Mother Nature herself and know that there are so many of us out there who like nothing more than making a necklace out of that pretty shell our little one has picked up on the beach or finding a way to turn other ‘nature bits’ into something we can wear with pride. It’s so much fun making little nature-inspired treasures!

I have lovely felted acorn necklaces in lots of new Fall-inspired colors available in Fairyfolk.

It hasn’t started happening here in Southern California yet, but it is such a favorite of mine to slowly watch the Fall colors creeping into nature… the splashes of oranges and reds, the yellows and rusty browns… the rich earthy colors that sing Autumn’s song.

These necklaces are made with real acorn caps that my children and I gather from the oak trees in late Autumn. The colorful acorn part is made from wool that I wet felt into tight little acorns.

The ball chain and leaves have a wonderfully rich and earthy antiqued copper finish.

Pretty little pieces of jewelry that look like they are a gift from the fairies!

All these necklaces are available in my shop, Fairyfolk. I also love custom orders, so if you would like a necklace in a different color, just send me an email and I’ll make it up especially for you.

Come on Autumn… I’m waiting for you!

Blessings and magic,
