A Fairy-ly Lovely Christmas


For causes unknown even to myself, I’m enthralled with the concept of making tiny issues out of woodland supplies and making furnishings and homes for the fairies. Let me hasten so as to add that though I’ve been making fairy properties and gardens for a few years now, I’ve but to truly see one of many “wee folks.”

However, whereas my very own home nonetheless begs for adornment and there are nonetheless many presents left to make, purchase and wrap, I ignore all of the issues that should be carried out and scurry off to my artwork studio to spend hours ensuring the fairy home is ideal for Christmas.

Though the fairies clearly at all times favor to be outdoors, I transfer them indoors through the holidays in order that my greater mates and visitors can get pleasure from their stunning house as nicely. Suppose Architectural Digest on a scale of 1″ to 12″.

This yr, as a particular shock for the wee ones, I made them a piano. The primary body is roofed with bark and moss and was pretty simple. However the keyboard! what a problem. I attempted and discarded many issues for the keys – stalks of grass, pebbles, bark, lichen…..none of it fairly labored. The important thing (so to talk) was two spaghetti noodles, lower to size, and 27 grains of black rice. Utilizing tweezers and a magnifying glass, I used to be in a position to satisfactorily reproduce a piano keyboard. I made a banjo too (out of a halved hickory nut) and I maintain listening for them to make magical music however to this point, it’s been a silent evening.

Upstairs is the eating room, with a desk set with lichen plates and acorn cups. The entree this yr is purple magnificence berries. Yum!

On the subsequent ground up is the bed room the place one of many fairies has kicked off his peanut shell boots and stacked them neatly beside the mattress. A half-read guide is on the bedside desk.

Up on the roof, Santa’s sleigh and 5 tiny reindeer watch for Christmas Eve. In fact Rudolph leads the best way.

Overlooking the entire home, as they need to, are the angels. These heavenly hosts stand guard, ensuring that every one inside are protected and know that they’re cherished.

Whether or not they’re manufactured from feathers and pinecones or one thing extra heavenly, we are able to all use an angel watching over us. I hope that your individual angels maintain you protected and nicely cherished all through the vacation season and past.
