spring nature scene

April 6, 2013

it is important that our children be in constant contact and rhythm with nature.  this is why celebrations that make the seasons are so important.  it is also just as important to keep a little spot in your home where we can bring the outside in, a little spot that reflects those special outdoor rhythms of the season.  a nature table is just the thing.

i admit i’ve been struggling with this.  i’m not generally a festive person.  but i’ve been working hard over the winter to source things that might evoke certain seasons.  i started meagerly with winter.  but, spring has flourished.  in prep for easter, i made sure we had some special touches.

unframed print to the far left is from phoebe wahl, available through taproot.  the wool felt lamps are custom work from margot at filzarts.  they are meant to fit the grono lamp from ikea.

the wood picture frames are from the rudolf steiner college bookstore.  the postcards in the frame are by marjan van zeyl.  the tiny pitcher and enamelware cups are from ‘for small hands’.

      Thank you! Margot is very quick and very talented. She custom made these lamps for me. But, she has other ones in her shop ready to go. Click on the link above and it will take you to her etsy site, FilzArt. I can’t wait to do more work with her!
