Of Elves and Oak Trees

Look who showed up at my house!

The first order of business? A visit to the magic tree!

What has their old friend got for them today?

A little elf-sized note!

Looks like the elves put in a new patio this summer.

Carli's note is complimenting them on their work.

Those oakish elves have been pretty busy since Christmas!

First of all, your grandchildren are GORGEOUS! Secondly, I absolutely adore the magical tree!!! I bet they were just squealing with joy to find the little deck and tiny chairs and the note! That tiny door is SO cute!! Can you adopt me?

What some adorable grandkids. That was such a wonderful idea and I know the grandchildren loved it. I think I might come up with something like that when I have them come and visit.
Blessings to you! LeAnn

Can I just tell you how much I love that idea? Its magical, full of imagination, and has teeny tiny accessories - all of my favorite things! What a fun weekend you have in store! I expect some great pictures from you or Miss Heather documenting the fun! We will both kiss summer goodbye in our own fun ways this weekend, I think.

I adore those little elfin set ups and how cool that your grandchildren get to participate in the magic!!!

I can't put little things in my yard because my pooches automagically think, "chew toy". Oy.
