We had yet another lovely Martinmas this year. Keeping it the same from year to year makes it easy on mama and gives a feeling of anticipation, comfort, and familiarity to the kids.

Same lanterns, same stories, same location, and same dinner. It was all delightfully predictable.


The weather was cool and crisp. Absolutely perfect for a sunset stroll through the woods.

Another lovely festival spent communing with nature and each other.

    Your blog is a joy, a treasure trove of inspiration -wonderful! I found it by way of searching Martinmas on Pinterest. I live in Wales and have a 12 month old son and am very inspired by Steiner too. I am a musician and artist, and I used to live in the USA and knew Renate Hiller, whom you link to on your blog. She was such an inspiration to me. Here is a needle-felted animation I just finished while pregnant with my son. I also did a version in the Welsh language. I hope you enjoy. I would love to share more with you – Would love for you to contact me and keep in touch. Here are the links:
    Bright Blessings,
