Bits and Bobs and Carousel Horses

We’re gearing up for Ellie’s second birthday around here. I’ve been trying to finish up on some special decorations.

I bought these little wooden horses in hopes of making a carousel centerpiece. I’m not sure how it will all come out or even if it will at all, but I’ve been busy sanding, and sketching designs. I also started using my wood burner I got for my birthday. It’s going to take lots of practice to get good, but it’s been fun, wood-burning the designs into these horses.

In other news, I’ve been rearranging areas…

Adding some sheep skin rugs to Ellie’s play areas to encourage play.

And someone had her very first licks of a lollipop (Daddy thankfully finished it).

But not before Mike the Peg Doll gets a lick.

I leave you with one of my favorite daily views….
