The Flower Fairies heard that Eyebright was having an open house and they wanted to say "hello" (and have fairy cakes and honey mead).  So a whole band of them showed up for a visit at the same time.  The Wayfaring Tree Fairy has a new digital camera and tried to get them all to stand still and look into the camera for a group shot.  Fairies are very independent, so this picture turned out to be the best of the lot.

Recently I was asked to contribute a version of the 'Find a Fairy Game' to the beautiful site at The Fairy Door and Window Company. 

Here is a link to that Page. 

While you are there, be sure to look around at the rest of the site.  For anyone who loves Fairies, it's really a great place to visit.

sweetpeahandcolored.jpg (32138 bytes) I just tried a little bit of 'pastel hand-coloring' on this image.  I'm kind of surprised that the sweetpea fairies haven't been added to the line of fairy ornaments yet.  They are definitely among my favorites in the books!

But, the most recent additions which will debut in June 2003 are:

SERIES 16

  • Blackberry Fairy
  • Fuchsia Flower Fairy
  • Geranium Fairy
  • Windflower Fairy
  • Yarrow Fairy
  • Zinnia Flower Fairy

HOW DID YOU DO?  I love 'em and I would have failed the test if I was taking itBUT I'M LEARNING.   And you don't really have to know it all, in order to collect them.  These Fairies are very forgiving.
