Look at our new addition to the playroom!
But let's back up a bit. Here I am the night before after unpacking the beautiful little stove made by David Smalley, a master craftsman, in his little workshop deep in the woods of Maine. You can tell that a lot of love goes into his work with wood. His business is called Elves and Angels, and he makes simple but elegant doll houses and other wooden toys for children. So, here I am inhaling the fresh scent of pine that wafted from the box as I unloaded it, inspecting each piece with appreciation for it's beauty and the care put into its design and finish. Maya helped me put it together as little Ollie laid on his sheepskin nearby, cooing and shrieking and waving his arms. Little does he know how much he will enjoy this small stove someday. But, we do. The directions were clear and mercifully easy to understand. We had it together in no time.
I think he likes it!
