Hi Megan - love the nature table - particularly the sheep. But I do struggle with making some of the Steiner seasonal ideas relevant to the southern hemisphere, where our festivals occur in different seasons and our seasons are more subtle (for instance not as dark, no snow in winter). Do you struggle with this too?
i love your seasonal displays ... this one is so calm and soft to look at and i am sure your little one loves to explore all those lovely textures.enjoy.
Thank you for posting this. You always give me a bit of an inspirational kick! I have spent the day planning our winter display which I am planning to get up at the solstice.xxx.
It looks gorgeous! If only we could get some real snow, too...
I always think I'm going to get 'stuck' with winter. Which is weird because all the whites and clean palettes often look the most beautiful (snowflake fairies are fabulous!).
Emma- because I am Canadian, winter will always have a huge snowy aspect in my heart and I think I will always represent it that way. Anything natural on the table (leaves/flowers/rocks/pinecones are collected by us on a regular basis so the natural part of our nature table really is in tune with Australia's seasons. The festival part is a lot trickier- who doesn't want to make hot cocoa and gingerbread men in winter, even though it s such a Christmas thing to do. I think over time we will come up with our own set of traditions that work for us. I am sure you are going through a similar journey.xo m.
