An Obsession with All Things Handmade and Home-Cooked

Fawning Over Earth Day


Although I personally believe that every day should be Earth Day, marking it on the calendar does give us a particularly good excuse to duck out of work early and enjoy the outdoors. Especially on this beautiful sunny day today, it would be downright foolish to hunker down inside.

Spring is out in full force at last, showing off a rainbow of colors with its fresh blooms and sprouts. The tiny young fawns with white-speckled coats have emerged as well, one of my favorite sights to behold; a bit awkward and shaky on their legs still, but somehow incredibly elegant all the same. They may grow up to threaten the existence of my vegetable garden, but for now, I don’t mind sharing some of the little purple flowers sprinkled across the lawn. Munching away without a care in the world, this little one is clearly enjoying the nice weather and springtime bounty of greenery, too.

Happy Earth Day!

  11. Happy Earth Day to you too! I like the idea of leaving work early and going outside…think I’ll do that now! :)

  12. Lovely fawn, I am just learning to crochet (am a very keen knitter) and it is always good to see inspirational ideas.

    There really has not been that mush in the UK about Earth day. It is slightly ironic that all the flights have started again in full force on Earth day – maybe we need more volcanos?

  13. Now this one is WAY too cute!

  14. Beautiful fawn – your crochet is just far too cute!

    how adorable


  18. Awww… he is too cute for words!

    Thanks for making me smile today :)

  19. Any news about getting the meringue recipe out there? The ones one your flickr look real, the hard to get hold of-mix ones do not. It would be pretty cool to be able to win over more people to vegan ways by showing them that the impossible is in fact possible, but it seems now like, what, three years have passed since first mention of a recipe? Any news of when the book will be published?

  20. How sweet! I like seeing the products of your talents. :)

  21. You’re killing me with cute! ;)

  22. How cute 1000 times over.
    Everyday should be earth day. Respect the planet we live on. :)

  23. aww! so adorable. i love the little pink cheeks!

  24. Hi Hannah! How are you? I haven’t been a good blogger lately but wanted to stop in and say hello. I love your little deer – so cute! I wonder if you sew the cheeks on or just glue them? I’ve been sewing mine on but it sometimes irritates me to work with such small circles of felt. LOL. Anyway, I hope you are well and I will try to be better about checking up on you over here! :) Hugs to you!

  25. Too cute!! This is adorable.

  26. Did you make that cute little thing? And you are right everyday should be earth day.

  27. Oh my my, it kind of looks like Strummer!

  28. This has got to be the cutest thing ever! My husband is cooing over it too and says it looks like a tiny version of our beagle Lobi. This is just precious, Hannah!

  29. OO I’ve missed your crochet creatures! Great to see them back in action!

  30. I agree, Earth Day should be every day :) Your fawn is so adorable!! I love the photo :)

  31. You know, I haven’t seen them yet this year, but when I do I will be jumping-up-and-down excited. Even the full grown deer sightings never get old for me, they are so majestic.
