f&f Family Journal

Summer Robertson

I am a mother of 4 beautiful children living countryside in a tiny home with my sweet family. We founded fawn&forest in 2007 with an intention of creating a shop that reflects our love for living simply with children.

We have been enjoying cool & quiet autumn mornings at home this week. Before we sit down to our morning basket time I make tea for myself & each of my children. Tea always seems to set the tone for a cozy, peaceful morning together, even for little ones. Our favorite tea at the moment is organic rooibos vanilla which is naturally caffeine free and perfect with cream & a touch of honey. 

Our morning basket time is a time we set aside to read aloud the books in our reading basket which we keep in a cozy spot next to "mama's reading chair". We read through all kinds of books and topics, but seasonal books with pictures, stories about nature and animal adventure always seem to have a special spot. We take weeks & months reading through novels, poetry and history ... little bit of everything for each of my children, ages 2 through 12. 

Here is a list of a few things in our Autumn Basket this month:

All Creatures Great & Small by James Herriot
Autumn by Gerda Muller
Pumpkin Moonshine by Tasha Tudor
Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery
Handbook of Nature Study by Anna Botsford Comstock
Tales of Squirrel Nutkin by Beatrix Potter
The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien
The Essential Emily Dickinson by Emily Dickinson

We spend about 2 hours a day reading together, so our basket is quite full & changes often : )


Teatime & Heirloom Ceramic Cups
My children love using our beautiful heirloom ceramic cups, perfect for tea or as a little pot for all the yummy autumn applesauce to be scarfed up right now!  Available in the shop,
