And I am naturally attracted to all that is colourful & fanciful & seasonal & interesting.
These earth gems just utterly fascinate me & I love that they arrive on the scene, in the dead of winter, like jewels of the earth that come to brighten up our meals & palates, while we hang on a little longer waiting for the refreshing offerings of spring.
(Not actually on to the cake plate itself!)
My crochet project is coming along nicely.
My approach to using wool is singularly seasonal.
I just never seem to have the inspiration to knit or crochet during the warmer months.
Being a "Katie" is really nice.
I just have to be me & the boys don't expect anything else.
(They are both a little older now!)
It's the best way to be really...just yourself.
I find myself utterly enchanted by the fairy house that the girls made in
I decided that it was the right time to make a fairy garden.
Under the shelter of our incredibly gnarly & ancient plum tree seemed like a perfect spot.
There has been a problem with the toadstools..I couldn't find any anywhere!
But I have found some little sweeties, at last, they should be arriving soon.
I don't think that it's very nice of it to fill up our whole front lawn but it's perfect in a fairy garden.
Fairies like to be near water as you can tell from this dear, dear Margaret Tarrant picture.
The pathway is a little uneven but fairies mostly fly so it should work out ok.
Kaitiaki came to play today.
Firstly, we went to the Farmer's Market.
There was a distinctive stinky boy smell in the car..Kaitiaki said it was his "grumpy socks" : )
Later, we quietly crept down the back under the feijoa tree so that he could meet Flitty & Flirty.
Of course they were right there waiting.
I didn't know that!
Whenever loving fairies meet, their eyelash kisses are so sweet."
I love eyelash kisses...they tickle & make you giggle.
Some people say that you can't see fairies, but I'm not entirely sure about that....

Have you ever made a fairy garden?
They can be big or small, I really don't think fairies mind at all.
Thank you so much for popping in..I am so delighted that you did!!
