Have you ever heard about the two young girls, who somehow managed to photograph fairies playing in their woods? Back in 1917, this caused quite a stir throughout England. I'm not going to give the ending away though. It's called Fairy Tale - A True Story if you want to take a look.
So, I thought I would share some of my favorite fairy things. The first picture is of my silver fairy windchime. It is out in the fairy garden of course. ;0)
Grace made this fairy house from a kit a few years ago. I like toys that can actually be played with so these fairies have been taken out to play in the water and mud so often their little faces have worn off! Time to get out the sharpie marker!
Let me introduce you to our tooth fairy. I bought her at a home candle show before Grace was born! Her hand is perfect for holding a little tooth until it can be exchanged for 4 quarters. :0)
For my last birthday, my sister-in-law made me the most wonderful calendar. Here on the July/August page you can see a "mermaid fairy" swimming!
For the next two months I will get to look at this cute leaf fairy. My sister-in-law has put the most amazing details into every page. I wish you all could see it in person!
Last, but not least, we can't forget about fairy food. Chocolate covered candied tangerines. The candy isn't all that great but we all know I just wanted the box. ;0)
All the names I know from nurse:
Gardener's garters, Shepherd's purse,
Bachelor's buttons, Lady's smock,
And the Lady Hollyhock.
Fairy places, fairy things,
Fairy woods where the wild bee wings,
Tiny trees for tiny dames--
These must all be fairy names!
Tiny woods below whose boughs
Shady fairies weave a house;
Tiny tree-tops, rose or thyme,
Where the braver fairies climb!
Fair are grown-up people's trees,
But the fairest woods are these;
Where, if I were not so tall,
I should live for good and all
~Robert Louis Stevenson
Thank you for looking at all my favorite fairy things!! Are there are other fairy fans out there?!
