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.
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.
I learned a few fashion tricks this weekend at the Fairy House Festival.
I need to keep up with the trends while dressing my own fairies.
I was happy to see that sensible shoes are in.
I found an assortment of hats to accent any outfit.
Wings come in all shapes and sizes.
Hair embellishments are a necessity.
There was a wide variety of wands.
Those fairies have a magical flare for fashion.
I must pay closer attention.
If you were wondering where all the fairies had gone yesterday,
they were all down at Latta Plantation for the Fairy House Festival.
I have never seen some many fairies.
All colors, sizes and ages came to construct a magical fairy colony along the wooded paths in the Faylinn Village.
In additions to the construction of dwellings,
fairies could also get their faces painted, make crafts,
play games, listen to stories,
plant flowers, blow bubbles and learn about nature.
There were even flying lessons available for the bravest little fairies.
My next post will be on Fairy Fashion. They have a flare for fashion!
The winter solstice has arrived.
I hope your holiday is full of magic and joy.
