My crafty creative girls are at it again!! One of the things I love most about summer is the amount of time the girls have to just think, create and imagine.
They chose a little corner of our yard at the stump of a tree and created a welcoming cozy cottage for fairies.
Complete with a very soft lambs ear bed with lovely smelling floral pillows.
Some very interesting lanterns hanging outside the door for when twilight appears.....
If you look closely, you might see a berry chandelier..
Can you see the teeny-tiny purple flower petals lining the pebble walkway?
In the far corner you can find a little rock stool and a mushroom table with a fairy sized green pumpkin awaiting a curious fairy. Notice the broom beside the table just in case the fairies need to tidy up??
We see lots of fairies in our yard - but you have to sit very, very, very still and wait for them to land on your toes. (Also a well-kept secret in my photography bag of tricks for keeping little ones still and focused long enough to snap a good shot!)
Almost every morning a fairy leaves a dew-kissed flower in Boo's car seat for her to discover - this has happened for years and years...... I know the fairies will be excited to discover a litle home built just for them after all these years of flitting around our yard.
Fairies come in all shapes and sizes......
My Banana also created this nature-inspired horse as a surprise for Punkin. Her creativity astounds me sometimes.
We decided he is a hillbilly horsey since he looks like he only has one tooth in his mouth. :)
In other news.... we have had plenty of late summer storms this week. Several days we even had hail. I snapped this picture after they were already melting - the hailstones were even bigger than these.
And our puppies have been catching up on their reading....
My favorite read this summer has been 'The Help" - I highly recommend the book AND the movie!!
