This sweet little wooden fawn is handmade by Chris at mamaroots.com. When not nibbling down all the sweet Milky Oats tops, he likes to nestle at the edge of the field in the dappled sunlight and snooze the day away. And this week, I’m giving him away to one lucky winner!
Chris hand makes all her wooden toys, sands them down, hand stamps or wood burns them, paints them with all natural watercolors and seals them with a all natural homemade sealer to give them a softly buffed shine that delights both children and adults alike. Her collections often feature characters from story books, Waldorf and Montessori inspired learning tools and small journals that are perfect for younger kids learning to write and draw nature journal style. All these items and more can be found in her fun etsy shop. You’ll find all sorts of inspiration for storytelling, birthday celebrations, play time, nature tables and more. I love all things mushrooms so her Mama Mushroom is very high on my list of favorites this month!

Congratulations to Henry! His number was selected to win the package from Mountain Rose Herbs! Henry said: “I’m 8 years old and I am so glad my mama signed up for Herbal Roots Zine. She gives my sister and me a copy every once in a while to learn about herbs in our yard. It’s fun to learn about these plants and to use them.”
Henry, I love that you are having fun learning about herbs and I hope you have extra fun with your package of Basil from Mountain Rose Herbs this month!
