Gingerbread, Toadstools & Birthday Wishes

Blanketed in the warmth of soft, glowing lights, our little girl sits... watching, waiting.

Stories and cuddles and milk have been shared as the slumber-some fall of nighttime draws near.

Christmas is upon us, only days away.

Weariness beckons, mouths wide with yawns, still our little girl sits... watching, waiting.

Her eyes glint with wonder, an instinctive soul.

Tonight, the house is unveiled,

Handmade with care, love bound in each stitch.

Placed carefully with thought, just out of reach.

We nod it's okay, bed can wait, go explore!

She neither hesitates, nor falters. Who could resist?

Hands gently milling and moving about,

Heart beating with rhythms of magic and song.

Colourful lollipops and snow-glistened paths,

Striped candy cane goodness and white frosted hearts.

Holly and berries and bow laden wreaths,

One tree and one snowman with sugar-coated sweets. 

As eyes become heavy and tiredness reigns,

We wrap our sweet bundle, whispering words of delight.

She soon falls asleep, her breath tells us so,

Her mind dancing with enchanting gingerbread dreams.

Our Gingerbread Cottage was purchased from the ever lovely Snuggles and Smiles. Handmade from the softest of felts and adorned with hand-stitched beauty, this little house is an exquisite piece for family play and will evoke wonder and delight, time and time again, all through the year. 

In honour of Sage's upcoming first birthday, Snuggles and Smiles are giving away this divine toadstool playhouse to one lucky Fields of Sage reader. With a removable roof and spacious tree hollow - fairies, pixies, woodland creatures and children alike are sure to be captivated by the endless play possibilities this magical dwelling has to offer.

To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment; either in the blog comment section below or on the Fields of Sage facebook page.

Best wishes to you all. Good luck!
