Once upon a time in Costa Mesa

Once upon a time, there was a sweet little urban homestead in coastal Costa Mesa, sunny Southern California. Three generations lived in this home that was filled with the music from an old piano, the bah-gawking of chickens and a tidy little plot of organic veggies and fruits. During the cold and wet winter months, the children and their mother would take a break from the garden, to huddle around the hearth and to make crafts with their busy hands.

As each handwork was finished, the proud crafter would wiggle a little twig that is tied to a bright little bell by a piece of jut string. As the stalwart little bell rang, the crafter would announce:

“Welcome to the world, little gnome, (or fairy, or picture, … ) may you bring joy and light into a little child’s heart.”

Then the happy lot would sing happy birthday to celebrate the birth of the handmade treasure as they sent it on its mission to bring joy, light and beauty to the special child out somewhere out there in the world.
