I have this feeling fairies lurk in my garden.
Once upon a time, when I was in the 11th grade I decided to look out my window at about 1 am. What did I see but these glowing orbs about the size of soccer ball, they were floating around and zipping all about. I saw one and then it ducked behind the garden shed, then I saw another weaving at the speed of light through the trees in the forest.
Since that day I have had no doubt that fairies live in the forest behind my lace filled tower (and the rest of my home of course).
My mother thought I had completely lost it when she caught me in a long floral dress once out in the garden talking to the fairies at sunrise on the Summer solstice. But what am I to do? Pretend they don't exist? I've been given a gift, the knowledge of their existence. I refuse to let them down by ignoring them.
How can one doubt there are fairies when the sky is painted in such lovely hues? It gives one the impression that anything is possible, and everything magical, fairies, ghosts, witches, goblins, the Loch Ness monster... THEY'RE ALL REAL!
So I whipped out my art supplies and there it was. Inspiration :)
I would like to present to you "The Twilight Tea Party"
I feel so blissful and magic filled as I write this post.
I have set up a wee altar in the dressing room, of course with Cameron's beautiful painting of a gypsy goddess crowning it.
And I have been reading Peter Pan! Isn't this the loveliest copy imaginable? I love the boats and moons of course!
I also have won a blog award! The Leibster blog award was awarded to me by Sara at Goddess of 4.
