  1. I love your outdoor space! Can't wait to stuck into reading your back posts this weekend :)

  2. What a wonderful transformation ! Your play area is so lovely and inviting.
    I love how you made such a spectacular play kitchen with just a few wooden shelves. I think I'll have to do that at our house. Thank you for sharing and congratulations on getting your vision up and running. Well done!

  3. Hi! I'm in love with your experience! I'm from Brazil and here we don't see children playing like that! I'm doing a research about the relationship between children and nature, and I'm thinking about start something here.
    Let's change some experience!
