Green Mountain Wee Woolies - Product Review and Giveaway



My girls are both at a stage where they enjoy dressing up. We have playsilks, necklaces, purses, play cell phones, and a few other props they enjoy using. Recently I went searching for a wool felt crown to add to their dress up play. I searched and searched... found a few options for making one, but nothing I was in love with.... until I found Green Mountain Wee Woolies! Valerie has the most wonderful assortment of natural wool and wooden toys and her crowns are absolutely the best I found! She agreed to send us one for review and is giving away an adorable little gnome to one of my readers.


The crown is just as wonderful in person as it looks in her shop! Its soft and just a bit stretchy, so it easily fits both girls. Valerie does wonderful work, the little rosebuds are adorable and such a nice touch. This definitely looks like a true princess' crown. I love that its made with wool (natural fibers) - the other items in her shop are made from natural materials as well. She even makes a blue crown with leaves on it that would be great for a boy to wear as a prince.

We'll definitely be visiting Green Mountain Wee Woolies in the future for Christmas and birthday gifts. There are quite a few things on my wish list here...

a gnome house that opens up and includes little gnomes,

a felted play mat with a pond, path, and garden,

an absolutely gorgeous doll to use when story telling,

and this is just the coolest toy! A wool felt car and road that travels nicely in the included pouch. I think this is such a creative and fun toy. Instead of filling up my blog with photos, go check out her store here for wool play food, soft felt play balls, wool soakers, a little doll family in a purse and more.

Valerie had this to say - "Thank you for your interest in Green Mountain Wee Woolies. My name is Valerie and I love working with natural fibers. I have been handcrafting since I was a small child. I have a passion for knitting and love making wool soaker diaper covers. I also enjoy spinning and felting. " Green Mountain Wee Woolies is a family business on a small family farm in Vermont.

I have an adorable little blue 8" tall gnome, knit from a soft cashmere wool blend yarn, stuffed with wool roving to giveaway! If you'd like to enter the giveaway please leave a comment on this post including your email address OR have your email contact enabled in your blogger profile. If you happen to purchase something from Valerie's shop, let me know that in another comment and you'll be given another entry for doing so. I'll leave the giveaway open until July 31st at midnight. Thanks for stopping by!

**Giveaway is now closed. Random.org chose comment #17. Thanks for your interest.**
