A Toy Garden {Giveaway}

You may have seen a cute little Bolga basket appearing in many of my gardening photos.
What was once an Easter basket for my son has now become a handy container for gathering produce in our small backyard garden. I think it would also make an adorable lunch basket for a child, don't you?
I bought this sweet little basket (yes, bloggers actually BUY things) back in April from A Toy Garden, a wonderful retailer of children's toys and other educational items. According to their website, A Toy Garden...
offers a broad selection of open ended, natural, creative & fun toys for children & their families. Great selection of Fair Trade & Made in the USA toys, too. Waldorf & Montessori families and anyone who appreciates quality toys at reasonable prices will enjoy our family run webstore.
A Toy Garden is the perfect place for back-to-school items, not just for traditional settings, but for homeschooling and Montessori and Waldorf schools. I'm quite smitten with their kits and art supplies, like the needle felting kits, including this Rainbow Felted Acorn Set
and this adorable table-top loom, which is made in the USA.
And I must get a set of these colored twig pencils, if only for decoration in a hand-made container. :). A Toy Garden really inspires that crunchy side of me.
A Toy Garden is such a great resource for unique and inspirational children's toys. Won't you go on over and take a look?

WIN IT!
Sonya, the owner/founder of A Toy Garden is very kindly offering to give away to one lucky K&K reader
Here's a brief description of this pretty and colorful basket: The top half is a mix of the blue and green, the bottom half is a mix of blue and natural. The blue has a hint of purple in it but is really very gender neutral. The rim alternates with natural and blue. The parts that go to the leather handle also alternate with blue and natural. It's roughly 8" wide in diameter, perfect for a child's lunch.
