One or two of you noticed I'd not joined in this month - my apologies, I fully intended too however, I was so so busy (beyond busy) with the art event I was part of, something had to give. (Housework and gardening also fell by the wayside!!) Anyhoo, I thought I would make up for my absence by sharing a story or two of my own leading up to our TAM weekend.
We have, in the village, resident 'fairies'. The small and magical kind - with little wings and pretty dresses. They even have a facebook page where their exploits and adventures are shared. I first noticed their presence when little fairy doors started to appear in the surrounding area. I was intrigued (as were other villagers) and took photographs.
These little beautifully made doors have working door latches, the cutest little hinges and door numbers and best of all - best of all, are the stories that they bring, the questions they create.
Who lives behind those little doors?
Where do they come from?
Are they really magic?
Oh yes the children say, oh yes agree the delighted parents.
It is wonderful walking along and catching the delightful conversations between parents and children as they spot these little magic doors. Sometimes they vanish, then reappear, other times they have a spot of magical TLC after little hands have tried to open the doors a little too hard. Fairy Magic is strong and protective.
I'd wished really hard that I had one in a tree near me.
The fairies must have heard me and with a sprinkle of fairy dust and just a day or two before the art weekend - Not one.....
...not just three...
but four, four enchanting little portals to another world,
where fairies dwell and secretly appear
and leave magic
and make smiles
and share happiness.
Thank you Edith Mouse -
your magic is so very appreciated xxxx
