The Mushrooms stand tall here in Mushroom Land. With their red hats on they sparkle with happiness. They always keeps guard in the forest. No intruders can pass them, so only kind creatures dance in the morning mist. Wee Christmas spirits, toys, softies, elves, creative gals and other fairy tale creatures with wings… On occasion also the snowman. He is so polite that he is always welcome to Mushroom Land, especially in December! Everyone needs a hug in December.
It had been snowing so the snowman kind of glided in, visiting in the forest, bringing his cheerful kind way. He was like a promise of better days, of wrapped gifts and family gatherings around the fire. Everyone wanted to hug him, but by morning all the snow melted and reveled the Mushrooms again.
Mr. Snowman agreed to stay a while though, at least until Christmas, because he felt at home in the forest. Who wouldn’t?
What it this all about you ask? It’s my pretend place, all shiny and new. It’s created with this weeks flea market finds and a bit of moss put together on a tray, and there you go! It’s served with December Feelings and a hint of craft! The house came in a box of little houses. I bought it for my dad’s Tiny World, the little Alp Town with Märklin train (but I’m borrowing it for now)! It is plastic and made in Germany, we think it’s 1950-ish! The red mushrooms came in a bouquet from the huge table with Christmas Ornaments at the thrift shop, and so did the wooden snowman.
I love this miniature forest and I wish I was a little little girl so that I could walk into the forest and get lost… just for a few hours…
Can’t you just smell the forest?
