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.
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!
