I love children's toys that are functional as well as beautiful, which seems to be the case with many hand-made toys. I've recently learned that there is some misguided legislation that is threatening to make hand-made toys illegal! This would put a lot of small businesses out of business and make our toy options a lot more limited. There is a really thorough explanation of the situation here and what you and I can do about it.
Santa brought this woodland fairy house (the elves made it) to Grace for Christmas. I'm not sure who loves it more- her or I! It's so beautiful and the details are exquisite. We've even had a real fairy visit and sleep in the bed! We know this because she left some fairy dust behind. It was very exciting!
