I'd love to enter too please.

I am new to Waldorf education (and your blog) but have discovered the principles behind it are already followed by the school we have chosen for my daughter :)

I am inspired by everything I have read so far and by your beautiful home and the creative objects you surround your daughter with.

'Zann said...

I'm a grandma who is delighting in a second chance to share (yes, play with) all the wonderful natural toys and games I had for my children. I would love to add this beautiful Ostheimer to our play!

Krista said...

Oh! This one is my favorite of the bunch! We love red! This was such a fun thing, watching the give away and seeing who wins...

My friend and I plan to make wooden toys quite like these ones in the next few months (probably not quite as amazing, but hopefully close!). It should be a lot of fun getting the kids involved in designing and making them with us.

Thanks for the bit of fun, and such a beautiful blog to visit, Shelley.

Elizabeth said...

I would really love to win! Thanks so much for doing this. What a blessing! :)

Suse said...

I was entering your giveaways mostly for myself as I adore Ostheimer toys, and really thought that Son #3 was probably getting too old for them, but the other day he happened to walk past just as I clicked on your blog and he gasped in delight and wonder when he saw the knight. 'That's so beautiful Mum!' he said with awe in his voice.

And I thought, right, I'm entering one more time!

Thanks for these beautiful and generous giveaways, Shelley.
