I love this print also. I have all seven of Ruth Elsasser's prints related to this story. I wish they would publish it in english, or I wish I could read german.

lovely! Your home seems so peaceful and bright. I fins that I have to constantly change and rearrange and reorganize my home in order to keep things from getting stagnant.

mama randa - thank you for your comment! yes, we are always changing and rearranging things here, as well. particularly during the change of seasons, to reflect the world around us. often seeing these things with 'new' eyes. :)

I am new to your blog, but so love the beautiful waldorfian softness, which you capture SO well. I gasped when I saw this post.....did you make the origami stars, which I presume are tea light candle holders? I have been searching for years for the instructions to make these!! I would so love you to share the technique if you know it :)
Blessings,
~Stephanie :)

Beautiful. I have always liked the softness of Waldorf inspired things. I love the candlelights - how do you make them?

Lovely. The print makes me harken back to my own days in Waldorf classrooms. I think I can smell the bread baking!

Where are the small lanterns from? Are they made by you? I'd LOVE to know how to make them! Any ideas or sources?
