A Nature Shelf! {week 3, December 2012}

The 'gnomes' have been busy with their everyday lives this past couple of weeks, and got a little behind with keeping up with the Nature Shelf!

I always feel a little guilty for admitting how busy life gets; this blog is supposed to be about living simply. But life with three Little Ones, two working parents and all the busyness of the holiday season, it has been difficult to keep our schedule as Simple as I'd like. Ah well ...

 There have been two additions since I last posted about our Nature Shelf here, with the felt holly and the needle felted mouse.

The Little Guy has been really 'into' mice just recently, so he was thrilled that the gnomes brought a special mouse for the Shelf! He was promptly joined by The Little Guys special mouse toy, Tiptoes (named after Tiptoes Lightly, the lovely fairy in the books by Reg Down).

What have you done to bring a little nature into your home this past couple of weeks? Feel free to share; I'd love to hear from you!
