My daughter is a firm believer, and lover of fairies. I will be the first to admit I may have encouraged this love a bit. Or maybe I should just say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
I bring this up as my daughter received some special gifts for Christmas from not only me...but also a special fairy friend that started visiting her last year. First of all, here's some photos of a few of the fun fairy gifts she received:
I want to move into this teapot house!!
just love her sweet watering can of flowers
My daughter received a special note from Rose (that's the name of her own special garden fairy) and it said that Santa dropped off goodies for her on behalf of Rose. You see Rose has left for the winter as all good garden fairies do.
My daughter has a lovely little garden right outside her bedroom window. We have toad homes to attract frogs & toads, fairy houses, and pots filled with flowers & fairy folk. We started this several years ago all in my daughter's hopes to seek, catch,or make friends with a fairy.
Well last year Rose showed up and started leaving my daughter notes and tokens. My daughter has been in heaven ever since and has loved sending notes back and forth to sweet Rose. My daughter even swears she's caught a glimpse of Rose before.
Here's the note Rose left last Fall letting my daughter know she had to leave for the Winter.
So my daughter was positively thrilled that Rose remembered her for Christmas and sent goodies via Santa.
So we've been dreaming on fairies ever since...even though we have a LONG winter ahead to get through before we're back to fun flower pots full of fairies. Here's some peeks from last summer in case you'd like to dream along with us:
