Handmade, natural toys are something that I REALLY get excited about. I especially love Waldorf toys (which are classic, simple, and designed to be open-ended). If I had some sort of windfall of cash, I would be powerless to resist all hand felted, crocheted and knitted toys.
Since I appreciate the finer things in the world of toys, I am smitten with Green Mountain Wee Woolies etsy shop. Fiber artist Valerie has been handcrafting since childhood. All of that practice has paid off in the form of beautiful, timeless wool toys and baby knits. These are perfect for anyone who recognizes that fine hand-crafted toys are works of art as well as treasured playthings.
One my favorites is this cute little a la carte collection of veggies. Those peas look rather tasty...
There are also fruits, if that is your preference.
I also spotted some knitted gnomes frolicking about in the garden...
There are so many wonderful things at Green Mountain Wee Woolies...I have been browsing for a while now and need to pull myself away!
But first I have a generous giveaway from Valerie of Green Mountain Wee Woolies fame:
TWO winners will each receive a knitted Wool Gnome in their choice of color! The gnomes are 7" tall, knit from wool yarn, and stuffed with carded wool. Natural fibers and VERY CUTE!
To enter, visit Green Mountain Wee Woolies and look around.
