A Silk and Wood Childhood~ and a Giveaway!

Mary Beth had an interview the other day for a babysitting job. The little girl, around three, had a bright, colorful collection of playsilks. Mary Beth made quick work of those silks, neatly tying them into beautiful gowns and fluttering capes. And, almost instantly, they were fast friends. Mary Beth is a playsilk master because playsilks are very much a part of our every day work and play. Our home is filled with silk and wood and lots of tools to fuel the imagination of children and the grownups who love them.

We've made silks into bridal gowns, hung them from soccer goals, strung them between the trees as banners, draped, caped, and escaped in them. We love our silks!

You can imagine how delighted I am to welcome Sarah's Silks as a sponsor.




 I've got a thing for Sarah in silk:-).





Playsilks are incredibly verstile, amazingly beautiful fabrics that are pure fodder for imagination and glee. At Sarah's Silks, you'll find a wide assortment of silks in different shapes and sizes and lots of suggestions for how to use them. You'll also find simple, beautiful costumes that beg to be brought to life by children still eager to infuse playtime with wonder.





Playsilks make a lovely drape over a nature table. They are the perfect backdrop for small doll play and they serve infinite uses in a playhouse.
