Today's topic for Fairy Tale Finds is not a specific tale but a denizen of many an enchanted forest, the mushroom
. The prince picks some on his travels through the wood, fairies dance wildly in their circles at night, the Caterpillar perches on top smoking his hookah, and the wicked witch places them carefully in her boiling cauldron. You know they are magic...
First a bit of poetry...it is after all national poetry month...
The Wild Mushroom by Carissa Bielamowicz
With its green fingers
With its heavy lavender tresses
Are held above you-
The ugly duckling cousin
Who hides among
Or peeks out humbly
From beneath the
Tree trunk's shadow.
Yet not scorned by all
Is the wild mushroom...
Who has been
Chosen by fairies
Who dance in moonlit circles,
Caterpillar of Wonderland
As his throne.
And now the finds...
How about a bit of enchantment you can keep on your desk?
Or if you prefer, you can wear this tee and take the enchantment wherever you go!
I love these sachets made from a gorgeous linen with their subtle print.
You could even stick your shopping list on the fridge with some...
And lastly, because I am such a sucker for gorgeous toys...I'll never grow up...here are a couple of fun mushroom toys from fellow members of the Natural Kids Team...I love these!
And don't forget that many of the Natural Kids team (including these shops!) are having sales this week. You can find the complete list here
