This was the end table where our festivity stand and seasonal items used to reside. I think that the globe, airplane (I just have to keep retrieving it from Little Man every evening;) ), and basket of faux flowers works much better.
This is the whole setup now... it is very similar to how it used to be. I am still thinking about seeing if I can find two more baskets to fit in the last two cubes. We have the dollhouse and farm in the nursery right now and will switch the castle with them every so often to keep things fresh and intersting.
Our Eskimo family, a gift from a dear friend. Since Fr John was born in Alaska, it means a lot to us!
The well, dragon, and rear door of the castle. We thought it looked a little like a church, so that is what the little ones pretend that it is!
The Liturgical and Seasonal Shelf... it is a little bare right now, but I really like that it is eye level with the children. Little Man is particularly smitten with it. I am looking forward to getting some things from our walks on the shelves. We have St Joseph, the Theotokos (Mary), and the Christ Child there since it is nearly the feast of the Meeting of the Lord (February 2nd).
I love the new set-up! Which prints do you have behind the festivity stand?
They are our fairytale postcards from Nova:
just beautiful! I love your wooden animals - where did you find such nice ones?
We've been collecting Ostheimer animals for awhile now. We give them to the children for birthdays, namesdays, and special feastdays (namely Christmas and Pascha). I've found them new through The Wooden Wagon and used on e-bay. They've held up really well and the little ones love them!!
lovely! it sure takes time to set up a new home! I am still doing the same in my new apartment! :)
Where did you get that castle?
The castle is a Kinderkram Mini Castle.
Look at how neat and tidy you had everything before we came to play! You are so gracious and we are so messy!
You weren't!! Taking out the toys is par for the course at our house:)
Hi I stumbled across this blog and was wondering how you built or where you got the cubbies?? We are looking for the exact thing for our playroom!!
We found them at Michaels. I bought one at a time with 50% off coupons and that way they were quite affordable!!
