second ostheimer giveaway...

i wanted to start this week's ostheimer giveaway opportunity on friday (rather than saturday) to give everyone a chance to join in. i will still be closing the comments on monday evening at 9:00pm CST to announce the winner, i just wanted to give everyone an additional day...especially because of the holiday festivities today. so again, all you need to do to enter is leave a comment in this post sometime before monday evening at 9:00pm CST for a chance to win this week's vintage ostheimer giveaway!

and this week's ostheimer giveaway is the standing purple knight!





good luck everyone!

yours in sharing some more ostheimer love,

shelley

Hello! I just found your blog last week and wanted to tell you that it has been a breath of fresh air for me. I have a 4 month old daughter Sunny and I just recently discovered the world of Waldorf and it's really starting to change my life! I'm starting to read all of the books and I feel so blessed to have found this while Sunny is still very young. I just wanted to stop in and say hello. I have a blog that I write in sometimes..it's teatimewithchapins@blogspot.com . We are planning on homeschooling and I'm defiantly going the Waldorf way! Thanks for the inspiration. Love&Light Michelle

Hi Shelly,

I've been reading & enjoying your blog for a while now. I live in Denmark, and my kids attend to waldorf school and kindergarten. And I work in a waldorf kindergarten myself. I find a lot of inspiration in "the american waldorf-way" - and I definitely find a lot of beauty in yours!

calyndula said...

Our local Steiner school still has one of these for sale on the shelf, as well as several other figures that have since been discontinued. They told me that children are slowly becoming less interested in playing with such simple things. How discouraging! My kids are BIG Ostheimer fans!!!

Shannon said...

Another beautiful piece! Please add me to the drawing!

It so nice to visit Your blog once a while and see how waldorflife is far away in texas.
Thank You, Shelly!

Penny said...

Thank you for sharing the Waldorf love -so generous! Please count me in the fun!

Heather said...

I lost the blog map I took to get to your blog - from one person's online journal to another through various links... So glad I found it though, I have a 2 1/2 year old who is recently obsessed with knights - not the violent side so much as that moment when a person becomes a knight.
Looks as though I'll be spending a little time wandering through your archives! ~H

Angelina said...
