"And as the seasons come and go, here's something you might like to know. There are fairies everywhere: under bushes, in the air, playing games just like you play, singing through their busy day. So listen, touch, and look around - in the air and on the ground. And if you watch all nature's things, you might just see a fairy's wing." ~Author Unknown

Who doesn't love a fairy? Fairies are a big deal at our house. We have wings, wands and fairy dust all over the place. Here's one of the fairies that lives with us...

(this fairy likes to wear Crocs..)

You can imagine my pure delight yesterday when I was handpicked by the Gum Chewin' Fairy to be her first apprentice in her new "Fairies in Training" program! Yipppeee doodles! (I'm blushing...shy smile...)

The lovely Gum Chewin' Fairy is currently accepting other Fairies in Training so hurry on over to Fairy Dust and Bubblegum to see what it's all about!

Thank you, Gum Chewin' Fairy for having faith in me!

Fairies visit our house daily. We have flower fairies, the Tooth Fairy, the Pumpkin Fairy in the fall and more. We like to play fairy games and make fairy crafts. Since we are in a fluttery fairy mood here at Bee and Rose today, I thought I might share a few whimsical fairy finds with you.

My little fairy and I are going to build a fairy house this spring. We found these darling fairy doors to add to our fairy cottage...




You can find these little charmers at Hearthsong. Here's a little list of things you can use to craft your cottage...

*Twigs, branches, bark, pinecones, acorns
*Flowers, dried rosebuds, moss
*Pebbles, shells, tiny woodland creature figurines
*Sculpey clay to make fairy furniture (or use dollhouse furniture)
*A tiny wishing well

I am making a tiny sign for our cottage with this quote on it. (Actually, I think I'll make a bigger one for me too!)

"Hand in hand, with fairy grace, Will we sing, and bless this place." ~William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

You can use a shoebox, build at the base of a tree, put in a garden, etc. Let your imagination run wild! (sparkle, sparkle, fairy dust all around!)

What about you? Do you have any special fairies where you live? I would love to hear all about your fairy magic!

Remember all you need is "Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust" to let your Fairy flag fly! So grab your wings, wands and fairy dust, and go spread a little Fairy magic across the land!

Hearthsong is a great resource for creative parenting. And we sure had lots of fairies around for many years. I think they have moved over to your house now.

I hear (from the fairies that reside at my house) that Crocs are an essential part of fairy attire!
Have a great weekend!

I remember when the fairies used to visit my home but now they have fluttered off. My home is just to empty for them now - not much here but human dust. I sure do miss their fairie dust though!! I am glad to see that they are now visiting your home - Enjoy & tell them "hi" for me. :)

Michele said…
Ah, how darling! I am just finishing writing a post about my laundry fairy. :-) She's a fiesty one.

Thank you for your supportive comments and your little visit on my big, bloggy day! :-)
Great idea! We have a croc-wearing fairy at our house too.

That is absolutely darling! Hearth Song has so many magical items. Love it!

And the only reason you think my post is funny is because it's not YOUR mom and you're not the one hiding in shame and embarrassment.

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   

Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…
