Making and Playing

Clay and Pencils

A horse barn made from a box.

A wood gathering sleigh made of an old pair of children's skis.

I love seeing those little legs hanging down.  She is getting so big, sitting at the big table, flipping through a book.

Sewing with fabric bought this weekend while thrifting.

While the days are getting brighter and the light longer and we are anticipating spring, the reality is that it is still winter and much of our days are still spent inside making and playing.


  1. I love all of this, Tonya! And we are watching for spring too. Soon!

  2. We have a wood gathering sled made with old skis too!

  3. Making and playing are great ways to spend the days!

  4. Looks cozy and pleasant! I love that wood gathering sled.
    Enjoy your week.

  5. Such a sweet little girl and lovely simple fun. The most exciting toy my daughter ever had when she was small was a little house we made out of the box the washing machine came in :-) Pam

  6. There's something undeniable about little ones sitting in big-people chairs at the table. Looks like you really scored on the thrifted fabric - it's lovely! And your wood gathering sled delights me to no end. I've been toying with a similar idea, though it involves horses in my case. Oh dear, I'm actually worrying *myself* now :-)
