Toy Gardening with Happy Whimsical Hearts & Hinterland Mama - Giveaway!

I am very excited to announce another wonderful Giveaway here at Hinterland Mama!
Perfectly timed if you're looking for an unique Christmas gift.

 I have teamed up with the gorgeous Kelly of Happy Whimsical Hearts
Who has lovingly created this wooden scarecrow to offer to one lucky reader. 
His details have been carefully wood burnt and milk-painted, then sealed naturally with a home-made beeswax/olive oil polish!

Influenced by Kelly's idea, I have created a wool felt vegetable plot for the Scarecrow to watch over, complete with teensy little vegetables. 
(inspired by, with permission, Sara Hills' (schooling from the heart) garden 
in Living Crafts mag Winter 2009).
*Please note the small size of the vegetables. 
This is an open-ended interactive toy, 
best with adult supervision, or for an older child.*

 Now, if you're not friends already, it is my great pleasure to introduce you to 
♥ Kelly:~
  
Kelly is an Australian mum to Dino Boy (4) and Little Miss Q (1).
Kelly aims to fill their childhood with magic, through imaginative play, homemade toys, the great outdoors (or their backyard!) 
as well as crafts and baking.
You can read more about their Waldorf inspired days at Happy Whimsical Hearts , or find them on Facebook and Pinterest.

For your chance to win both the beautifully hand-crafted scarecrow and felt vegetable garden, please visit Happy Whimsical Hearts, then come back here and leave a comment about your favourite post or topic on her blog. 
(Don't forget to say hello while you're there ♥)

For additional entries, comment if you:~
Entries for this giveaway will close Monday 19th November (8pm AEST), open WorldWide.
The winner will be chosen via random number generator and announced both here and on Happy Whimsical Hearts soon after.


ENTRIES CLOSED. 

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ENTERED. ♥

Goodluck!

  46. Thank you both for this oppertunity! I love the little veggie patch what a sweet idea, the scarecrow is really sweet too! I have been reading Happy Whimsical Hearts for awhile now so it is hard to pick a favorite post, but the most timely for me was about redirecting energy. With a 25 month old and 21 month old there is a lot of redirection needed in our days!

  92. Hallo Hinterland Mama,

    I just visited Kelly's Blog Happy Whimsical Hearts
    and left my comment there. I wrote her that my son had been in a Waldorfkindergarten 16 years ago in Bavaria/Germany. But something nice like that I never had seen. A realy lovely idea.

    Best regards Susi
