People give me fairies as gifts. I have some new ones.
Lily and Rose have their own solar-lit houses.
It is sweet to see them glowing in the windows at night.
I adore my new Turtle and Dove set of fairies.
When I must stay inside, it is nice to have a little company to play with.
There will be NO Fairy Halloween Party due to last year’s bad behavior.
We plan on having a quiet night at home.
Ruth has flown off to a retreat for some rest.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN to all the little good fairies.
The fairies wanted to have their own little cook out on Labor Day weekend.
I put Ruth in charge of the grilling.
They have fixed quite a feast. I am not sure humans should eat this.
I hope Ruth’s pancreas can handle it.
Oh good. She seems to be sticking with wine and cupcakes.
The fairies sure know how to have fun!
Happy Labor Day Folks and Fairies
I planted this little wonder in one of the fairy gardens.
It is tiny but mighty.
It has bloomed all summer.
It is especially lovely today in our 90 degree heat.
The fairies must be taking good care it.
It is the prettiest little plant in the yard right now.
Superbells Doublette ‘Love Swept’ is a Proven Winner Calibrachoa hybrid.
American freedom is a thing to celebrate.
The fairies realized that a party was in order and planned a parade.
There were prizes awarded for the best decorated entries.
Carie the Tooth Fairy won for her bike decor.
Several floats were constructed.
Tink enjoyed riding on one of these.
Queen Mona decorated her carriage.
A patriotic tear drop trailer joined in.
Even the onlookers were in costume.
Wingrid stayed awake for the festivities.
Ruth lead the proceedings, of course.
My favorite entries were the little kids in wagons.
Happy Fourth of July!
Thanks to my friend Barbara S. for the parade idea.
Happy Birthday to my favorite little boy, Rudy A.
Happy Birthday America.
The fairies begged us to have an egg hunt over Easter weekend.
Ruth and I hid the eggs.
Tinker Bell brought cupcakes.
The Tooth Fairy brought Sundaes. I think she has a sweet tooth.
Rosebud insisted we serve tea.
Those Playmobil fairies wear their skirts too short for my taste. Baby don’t bend over!
The Queen was dressed in her best vinery. Looks like she’s been eating a chocolate bunny.
Poison Ivy is way too competitive. She brought a very large basket.
I loved Wingrid’s hat. It was just her color. (literally)
I did wish that Ruth had not kept pointing out where we hid the eggs.
A chipmunk showed up.
He spent most of his time finding the food. No surprise there.
When the finders are also fliers, the sky is the limit as far as hiding places go.
I am not sure what happened?
Our egg hunt turned into a chick rescue.
I should have known not to use those magic eggs!
Happy Easter Peeps
For an April Fool’s Day joke, we sprinkled Ruth with glitter.
She thinks it was pixie dust.
I hope she realizes those wings aren’t real.
I’d better find myself a really good lawyer.
Flower the Fool
The fairies wanted to celebrate the Spring Equinox by going on a camping trip.
I agreed only if RBG went along to chaperone.
They seem to be having a great time.
Of course Wingrid, being a ghoul, must sleep during the day.
RBG has taken up fishing.
I hope this won’t encourage her to retire anytime soon.
Peacock needs to keep slathering on the sunscreen.
There’s nothing worse than burned blue skin.
I hope all of you are enjoying this first day of spring as much as the fairies.
I learned a lot last weekend at the Fairy House Festival at Latta Plantation.
I had no idea that fairy architecture was so complex.
It seems that they like to have paths to their door.
Bark is their favorite roofing material.
Pine branches and pine cone are decorative accents.
Stones are stools and acorns are bowl.
Wisps of grass add flare.
Some like the teepee style of house
while others feel safer under ground
or inside a tree stump.
I must start gathering building materials to build my fairies a new house under the fig tree.
Stay tuned for updates.
