Emily & Little Bear

Emma Clover and I have finished her Little Bear collection and it is so sweet. I think that I may love it even more than she does. Some of the figures are Holztiger and were found in a few different places (Amazon, Padilly, the Ark). A few of the figures came from an Etsy seller called Hutton Road. The goblin/gnome was purchased at the Nordic House in Berkeley (also where we found the mushroom candle holder).
She uses part of her dollhouse for them now (since its two pieces) and we have blue and green fabric that she uses as well to set them up. It is always so enjoyable to listen to her conversations and play. I love it so much!
As I have mentioned before, we are very fortunate to have little gnomes painted on wooden plaques at the foot of the electrical poles around our home. Since Clover is a big fan of Little Bear they are referred to as goblins in our circle.
A few blocks from our house we found that next to one of the goblins is a little fairy door. It is the perfect size for the goblin and Clover was so very happy to discover it. I have seen the little doors at Fairyland and they are even available from the gift shop for anyone was interested to house their fairies, gnomes and goblins.
We sill look for the little goblins every day and Clover directs me to cross the street to be on the side that has the electrical poles. This kid has Oakland mapped out and has preferences about where we should walk everywhere so she is definitely paying close attention to her surroundings.
maiki found a couple goblins that were hung much higher on a pole near Whole Foods and of course they are holding balloons (that is how they floated up so high on the pole). So now we are all in the spirit of finding them around our neighborhood. Much to my surprise we have seen them further into Oakland than just Adams Point. I even spotted them walking in Rockridge, and I sure was happy to report back they are spreading.
