I just couldn't resist!


After reading this post over at Soule Mama, I followed the link immediately and placed an order. It got here in record time and I am just thrilled with what I got. In fact, I wish I would have ordered more. I ordered all the people, some snowmen, angels, men with caps, Christmas trees, angels, eggs, and of course acorns. Pictured below is most of my order which will be a Christmas gift for Sydney and some other lucky folks.

I'm still debating whether or not I am going to paint any of them. My love for raw wood goes way back, so it will kind of kill me a little to cover it up. But I do have 5 family sets (man, woman, boy, girl, tot) so I will probably end up painting a set and giving away a couple sets for gifts. I've been racking my brain trying to come up with a clever (easy) small doll house for them to live in. I have big plans to make Sydney a large doll house, but in the meantime I want to have something small for these little guys to live in. (I'm open to suggestions here!)

I was drooling over this site yesterday and came across this nativity set. Wouldn't it be perfect? I wouldn't have any animals, but I think I could still make it work. Hmmm....

Edit: The wood shop is called Casey's Wood Products. Here's their site.

Hmm, I'll bet you could come up with some animals for a nativity somehow. I am thinking something made of felt?

this would be a good idea for something temporary at least.

I saw that post too, and will be placing an order shortly. Glad to here you love them too.

I saw that post over at SouleMamma too and thought what a wonderful idea. So much potential with those wooden pieces for lots of imaginative play.

As for a temporary house for some of your people... how about sewing a simple house (using plastic canvas slid between the layers of fabric as the "stiffener" to give the walls and roof support and shape)?
