An etsy treasury, full of magic and wonder - 'I believe'

It's been a long time between my etsy treasuries 
(Defn: a collection of wonderfulness from the etsy website).

However, I think this has been worth the wait?

I tried to include representations of all the 
magic and wonder we believe in as children...
I admit, I believe in most of it - still

I love every item I've chosen.
And nearly every one of the etsy shops
I've included, have even more items I love!

You might too.
Please do stop by and have a look at my
etsy treasury.

Felt Dragon toys for Girls and Boys

I have had dragons in me for quite a while 
~ creatively speaking ~
and actually crafted these dragon families in Autumn. 
With stories of St George and the Dragon, 
St Michael and The Hungry Dragon on my mind -
& in my children's hearts.

Apple muffin recipe - our gluten free sugar free Apple Muffins

On a Sunday, we like to slow things down when we can.
And this Sunday was so beautiful, the sky so blue, the air so warm, 
we were feeling extra motivated to get things done.
So now I'm all caught up on the washing, 
our pets are enjoying a bit of sun (hermit crabs), 
we've baked and now we can sit down to do some family craft.
Today it's making Winter window stars and suns from Kite Paper.

We prefer to avoid gluten and sugar when we can, 
but love our sweet treats.
So I am sharing this morning's muffin recipe, 
as they turned out so very deliciously.

A new season - Winter - Our new booklist in the sidebar

Life has been busy these last months.
However the weather is cooling here in the Southern Hemisphere 
and we are slowing down.
Over the last few months our children have been 
building up their immune systems. 
(Yes, they've been ill several times.)
Though with this comes growth. Much growth.
We have seen pronounced changes in their height, shoe size, 
teeth (coming and going) and facial features. 
Their interests have diversified dramatically. 
Their behaviour and reactions have matured.

And today, I feel my booklist reflects these changes.
