Previous Entry Share Next Entry

In Soulemama's book THE CREATIVE FAMILY, she writes about children's playthings and what we should look for when choosing what to place in our child's room. When considering something, ask the questions: Is it beautiful? Is it simple? What is it made of? What senses does it use? Something that is hand-crafted with a good, simple design that is pleasing to the eye is the first consideration. Is it made of natural materials, like wood, wool, cotton? Can the materials be found in nature? (There goes plastic!) Is it wonderful to look at, to touch, to smell? Does it make a pleasing sound? These are all things to think about when making our choices.
I am in the process of making some improvements in our playroom. And what a joyful process that is!
Here are my first steps:
The new dress-up corner with more colorful, beautiful, super-soft silks
playroom additions 002

And a brand-new, nicely-crafted table and chairs set that IS truly beautiful to behold... and a pleasure to run my hands over!
playroom additions 003

And I've only just begun!

Where did you find that table Darlene? It really is beautiful and looks similar to the one we have in our playroom.
