Please do not lick the roof!

Thank you so much for all the lovely comments about the elf trees.
The tiny forest which has sprouted on my desk makes me so happy and I'm glad they make you smile too.

The big trees in my back garden have lost most their leaves now and I am quite missing the woodland feel they gave. They is not enough trees to keep my living in the woods fantasy going while they are bare and so I have to pretend I live in the elf tree forest... which is really quite a lovely dream... 

In the forest of elf trees, where snow covers the ground and bells jingle lightly in the wind, I would spend my days playing hide and seek with Ollie. I would look for bright pink leaves and try to spot the little elves whose job it is to be-ribbon all the forests trees. As dusk begins to fall I would invite the bunnies around for buttery toast and hot mugs of tea to my forest house, which would just have to be a cosy home made from gingerbread...

In magical elf tree forests, a gingerbread house is the only way to live... 
although I do love gingerbread and will have to be very careful not to eat myself out of house and home! 

I'm a little embarrassed to say I would probably be tempt to take a nibble if this Cosy Home was made from real gingerbread. My inner child is greedy little thing! Had I been Gretal I would have stayed at the cottage forever and lived off sweets and gingerbread... 

Luckily this Cosy is quite safe, I think his happy face would persuade most nibbler to admire his candy roof from a distance rather than take a taste. That, and the fact felt isn't the tastiest of treat... 

The gingerbread Cosy will join the little shop's Christmas forest soon and have more ginger goodness to share with you another time!

Bye Bye from the elf forest!
