Bewilder and Pine

Stories remembered from, and created throughout, childhood. . . worlds fashioned from unlimited imagination . . . those so-called "imaginary" friends. . . the myths and legends of ancient world history . . . and our desire for solitude, simplicity and the search for creative sanctuary envy day. . .

These are the ideals, large and small, that have inspired us to bring this shop filled with our miniature creations to life here.

The myriad of ever-evolving items you may find in Bewilder and Pine are all somehow directly tied to the unforgettable and unequalled days of our own childhoods. The magic and mystery that we never wish to lose as well as that we have reclaimed over the years of growth and re-invention. These are the beliefs and possibilities that defy age and agenda. . . that are available, even now, to children of all ages.

It is our hope that you will find a little something reminiscent of your own childhood within these pieces as well. Something that you carry with you still. . . something that has never lost it's magic or luster. Something that, in spite of the ever-maddening world around us, never will.

And we hope that you will allow the inspiration of it all to sink deeply within and take you back to those times and places as well. We are so happy you've stopped by, if only for a peek, and we hope what you see stays with you for some time to come.

Thank you for looking, . . but more for believing!

About

Bewilder and Pine; the Dream Collective

Backward, turn backward, O Time, in your flight,
Make me a child again just for tonight!
(Elizabeth Akers Allen)

What if, as adults, we allowed ourselves to not only revisit those vivid landscapes of our childhood but also allowed ourselves to slip into that young skin once again?

What if we dared to play the same games we did then. . . or create new ones
Sing the same songs. . . or create new ones.
Dream the same dreams. . . or dream new ones.
Believe in the same endless possibilities
Revel in the same myths and multifaceted realities

What if we believed that there was never going to be a truer "us" than who we were in those early days?

What if we believed that we knew more about the universe and how it actually worked back then than we ever will as so called "adults"?

What if we believed it enough to think that others all over the world could, and would, find their way here to share in the creation of it with us as we go?

What if we just went ahead and dove in whether anyone came to join us or or not. . .

This is how the place known as Bewilder and Pine was created.

It's a conspiring of four hands and four paws that fell into a dream that:

Holds childhood as the focal point of everything we create
Asks that you not just remember those days too, but willfully indulge anew
Asks you to set aside things we were taught and reclaim things we were untaught.

It asks you to dream
To laugh
To play
To love
To believe
Whether it's for the first time or
All over again

<>oOo<> About Bewilder and Pine's origins <>oOo<>

Bewilder and Pine is named after the realm of the Bewildering Pine which is the reflection of all the possibilities our creative worlds have held since childhood. It is not just a "place" in the mind, but a realm under construction. Maps, stories, histories, characters, towns and villages, creatures of myth and legend.

We are expanding this realm as we, ourselves, learn about it. We will continue to share what we discover and create what makes out hearts sing. It has been 6 years in the making to this point and, as caretakers of this realm 24 hours a day, we are overjoyed that you have come to visit and hope you will return. : ) This is what we "do" and we are eternally grateful for every step and misstep that brought us here.
