Mother Nature's Peeps




On a sunny Sunday last weekend, Spring had finally sprung so the sunshine of my eye {my son} and I were outside all day long playing on our terrace.






We popped open our market umbrellas for some necessary shade from the bright sun, grabbed a basket, some snippers, put on our garden Crocs, and went on the hunt for pretty petals, lush leaves, podspine cones, weeds and seeds.






Then the fun began with the evolution of a garden family ~ Mother Nature's Peeps.





Flower Fairies started dancing on the table...



then...some Woodland Creatures came around to play with them.





Later, The Green Guys joined in the fun.



Each one with their own unique personality was made within minutes, and then as soon as I photographed each garden peep, we would clear the canvas board and give birth to new creatures.  {I think we made about fifty of these garden people.}







We decided that we should add to this collection of Mother Nature's Peeps as the seasons change throughout the year.  



And don't be surprised if you see some of these Peeps available on products in my Etsy, Zazzle, and Spoonflower shops one day soon.

Ciao amici,
Suzanne

{Several years ago I purchased the whimsical little coffee table book titled Blossom Buddies by Elsa Mora.  This book was the inspiration for this project however, when I asked my son if he wanted to look through the book for some ideas, he said no.  All of our Peeps are our original ideas and creations.  Thank you for the inspiration for this fun project Elsa!}
