Winter Market

Today we took a car trip down to Glenhaven for Lorien Novalis Steiner School Winter Market. I bought a ceramic water filter for $5. I think it too good to be true - there has to be something wrong with it. The lady I bought it from said that there is nothing wrong with it. Where she lives now, the water is fine and didn't need a water filter. Hopefully, it's fine and I got a bargin.

I also got an Electric Oil Vaporizer for $2 and a big stainless steal pot I can use for dying wool for $2. I also got some play cloths (red, purple, yellow and orange) and a little baby doll in a sleeping bag for little Loopity Lou. Katie got a pair of magnetic haematite crystals. I bought my older son a little boy doll that looked like him - he wasn't that impressed. I bought a silk sari scarf for $10. I also bought a blue, purple and light blue tied dyed cotton velvet skirt, a crystal, 12 lyra chalks and a ball of wool.

The kindy room was open - it is such a beautiful, magical place. There was so much creativity and inspiration. The kids spent a while playing in the kindy area while I soaked up the atmosphere. The light was amazing - I couldn't stop taking photos.

how did you go with the ceramic water cooler? We got one from my inlaws and it kept developing white mold on the inside and out. I cleaned it with vinegar several times but in the end we abandoned it, disappointed. Any tips?
