It happens like that in winter sometimes.
It needed a kindly home...it's had a broken neck.
I'm sure the fairies will look after him & bring him thimbles of honey dew in acorns for mending & strength.
I'm not entirely sure that I want to attract too many gnomes, however.
They're kind of funny & wrinkly & I'm not sure if I can trust them terribly.
You might like to pop in & see Sophie's grand efforts in creating fairy accommodation this week. Ooh they are so lucky those fairies in Fading Grace land! her post is entitled
"WANTED...DESirable RESidence, good solid walls, no leaks, and floral curtains........"Isn't that so cute!!
The Lord of Rushie River & Simon the Swan.Have you ever read these two books?
They're both written by Mary Cicely Barker....you know the wonderful flower fairy illustrator.
You can see some of her fairies here.
I came across a marvelous old wire "frog" this week that fits this wide vase perfectly.
It's always hopeless when you go to put flowers in a wide vase & they all just flip up & hurl themselves out while you're trying to arrange them nicely.
I also found this charming magazine holder a week or two ago.
There's just something sturdy & friendly about old white cane, perhaps it's the dependability factor of the old cane pram.
When I got home I thought...mmm I guess that is quite a lot of floral all together isn't it!
I came across a German blog with the prettiest jam jar covers.
Kaitiaki chose blue & yellow colours for me to make a brooch for his mum's birthday next week. He was a little perturbed about having to keep a secret..apparently that's a bad thing ; )
I have been a garden fairy for a long time now & especially so for my dear friend Sue.
We both share a passion for colour & beauty & she has recently started a lovely business called Style Me Vintage. You can find her here on Facebook if you'd like to visit or you're looking to hire pure loveliness for a wedding or special occasion.
We sat down for a cup of tea at this table the other day..isn't it glorious!
It's such a delight to see you.
With friendship &
