Fairy Egg Hunt with a Hitch

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)

IMG_5294

I did wish that Ruth had not kept pointing out where we hid the eggs.

IMG_5313

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.

IMG_5314

I am not sure what happened?

IMG_5315

Our egg hunt turned into a chick rescue.

I should have known not to use those magic eggs!

Happy Easter Peeps

The Fairies Go Camping

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.

IMG_4830

RBG has taken up fishing.

IMG_4835

I hope this won’t encourage her to retire anytime soon.

IMG_4834

Peacock needs to keep slathering on the sunscreen.

IMG_4843

There’s nothing worse than burned blue skin.

IMG_4841

I hope all of you are enjoying this first day of spring as much as the fairies.

How to Build a Fairy House

I learned a lot last weekend at the Fairy House Festival at Latta Plantation.

I had no idea that fairy architecture was so complex.

IMG_4480

It seems that they like to have paths to their door.

IMG_4492

Bark is their favorite roofing material.

IMG_4469

Pine branches and pine cone are decorative accents.

IMG_4485

Stones are stools and acorns are bowl.

IMG_4483

Wisps of grass add flare.

IMG_4471

Some like the teepee style of house

IMG_4491

while others feel safer under ground

IMG_4478

or inside a tree stump.

IMG_4481

I must start gathering building materials to build my fairies a new house under the fig tree.

Stay tuned for updates.

The Storyteller’s Hat

I have many hats, but none compares to the Storyteller’s hat.

It seemed to store stories in its castle.  There was even a draw bridge on the front.

The storyteller’s name is Wisha Granty.

Storytelling is her part-time gig.  She is also a fairy godmother and a pirate named Captain Rowdy.

I met her at the Fairy House Festival at Latta Plantation.

I did not get to stay for her stories, but her hat told some tales of its own.

It seems that Bugs Bunny is friends with Tinkerbell who flies with dragons when Peter is elsewhere.

The Red Ridinghood wolf  is the supervisor over the Two(oops) Little Pigs.

Snow White is a security guard who works with a gargoyle to guard the drawbridge.

The wicked witch does advising atop the castle, coaching princesses to be more assertive.

The hat even had a Halloween side with a Jack-o-lantern, graves stones a ghost, and some gargoyles. I sensed some dark magic coming from this side of the hat.

The hat was so full of magic I was afraid to touch it.

Wisha Granty must be one heck of a storyteller and godmother if she owns a hat like that.

It was nothing short of a work of art.

Wisha had a hat like that.

Fairy Fashion

I learned a few fashion tricks this weekend at the Fairy House Festival.

IMG_4506

I need to keep up with the trends while dressing my own fairies.

I was happy to see that sensible shoes are in.

IMG_4458

I found an assortment of hats to accent any outfit.

Wings come in all shapes and sizes.

Hair embellishments are a necessity.

IMG_4519

There was a wide variety of wands.

Those fairies have a magical flare for fashion.

IMG_4502

I must pay closer attention.

A Whole Lot of Magic at Latta

If you were wondering where all the fairies had gone yesterday,

IMG_4489

they were all down at Latta Plantation for the Fairy House Festival.

IMG_4520

I have never seen some many fairies.

IMG_4542

All colors, sizes and ages came to construct a magical fairy colony along the wooded paths in the Faylinn Village.

IMG_4475

In additions to the construction of dwellings,

IMG_4478

IMG_4480

fairies could also get their faces painted, make crafts,

IMG_4513

play games, listen to stories,

IMG_4510

plant flowers, blow bubbles and learn about nature.

There were even flying lessons available for the bravest little fairies.

IMG_4531

My next post will be on Fairy Fashion.  They have a flare for fashion!

Fairy Halloween Party

The fairies have a new hangout.  Since it is fall, I carved a pumpkin just for them.

IMG_3227

They love all our human traditions for decorating and celebrating.

They like trick-or-treating

IMG_3203

and bobbing for crabapples

IMG_3197

and roasting marshmallows.

IMG_3230

Blow that out PI!

IMG_3224
Never trust a fairy with fire.

They spend most evenings together inside that pumpkin.

Oh, look.   They are in there now.   Let’s take a peek inside.

IMG_3235

Looks like a Halloween party.

IMG_3208

What’s this girls?   Gambling?

IMG_3205

and alcohol?

IMG_3207

Et tu Tink?  Wait ’til Disney hears about this.

I should have known when I saw Wingrid’s new bottle tree.

IMG_3211

How old are fairies anyway?

FLOW is always the last to know.
