Bubba-Craft

Little Loopity Lou has been doing a bit of bubba-craft at play group. We made these little gardens for Easter. We used air drying clay to make the little cups to put the eggs shells in and Lou put the wheat and alfalfa seeds in the egg shells. We've been watching them grow on the window sill at playgroup for the last couple of weeks and we finally got to bring them home.


Now Lou's little garden sits looking beautiful with the other treasures my children have picked up so far this season on our autumn nature table...:)
Cadi from Coffee, Yarn and Nirvana Please! made the beautiful nature table doll. I won the doll off her last year. This is what started my adventure with needle felting nature table dolls.
..... and Katie made the knitted rabbit..;)

Aww! Those are stunning! What a wonderful inspiration.. I'm certainly inspired and you can bet we'll be stealing a little of that to create as well. :) Peace.

I love your nature table! Adding the wheat and alfalfa is such a good idea.

Ah, this is why I enjoy reading Australian blogs. When you are celebrating Autumn, I'm just getting ready for spring. I'm going to try to keep that in mind when I offer dolls on my Etsy shop. I'm currently dreaming up some Autumn dollies.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Let me know when you start your Etsy shop.
