Olivia just turned 8~







Olivia turned 8 yesterday . We decided to give her a swinging cocoon seat. An early morning was just the perfect setting in our courtyard for her to celebrate. Our special Waldorf celebration traditions can only make a birth day feel just so right. Olivia's Birthday crown is a tradition we have embraced. Queen for a day~ 8 kisses when she wakes and 8 candles on her cake. 8 jumps to get out of bed and a golden thread to lead her from her bed to a glorious spot to open her gifts. We invited some friends for Birthday cake and tea. I just have to show you this most beautiful 'mama and her babes' that Beth and Elsa sent from 'Road to joy' . Homemade.~ Just perfect for our gnome and fairy house village play. Happy Birthday Olivia~!

Congratulations mama on a beautiful 8 year old! That mama and her babe is gorgeous, and I am looking forward to the day that I can get myself one of those cocoon chairs of my own!
