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 is filled with piano music, cackling 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 make crafts with their busy hands.
As each handwork is finished, they would wiggle a bright little bell that is tied by a string to a twig handle. “Welcome to the world, little <gnome/picture/fairy>, may you bring joy and light into a little child’s heart.” Then they would all sing happy birthday to celebrate the birth of the handmade treasure as they send it on its mission to bring joy, light and beauty to the world.
Each unique creation has been born in our home, carefully crafted from natural, quality, non-toxic materials. We love the touch of natural wool fibers and the opulence of luxury fibers like mulberry silk, Angelina fibers and more. They are meant to be a feast for your senses and sweet treat for your soul.
In these days of fast, mass production of plastic toys, we hope our slow, unique handwork bring love and warmth into your life. The mother and child wool pictures make great gifts for the new and seasoned mothers, to convey the indescribable blessings of motherhood. The guardian angel series make great birthday and baptism gifts. The fairy tale scenes hung on the wall of a child’s bedroom reminds us what happy childhood memories are made of. I hope, by shopping Castle of Costa Mesa, you experience the joy of giving the extraordinary, unique and special.
