Oh look what else I discovered. Just like last year, the Wee Folk have been busy planting their rows and pots for a bountiful summer.
This sweet miniature fairy potting bench was made by hand. The top shelf was carved and faux painted; the sides are covered in birch and tiny dots of moss and fungi adorn the bench.
Like this one? See the one I made last year. I can custom make one of these for the gardener in your life.
A wee bench was spotted in the woods.
Upon closer look, it had been sitting there for quite some time, for moss and fungus had grown in lovely little clumps around it.
Stained by the weather, mold and overwintering, it had sort of a greenish hue to it.
Count Dracula had his Brides, and the Ferrishyn (fairy tribe of Tanglewood) have theirs.
This is the Reindeer Muse, the Queen's own poet. Every day, she alights to a sunny spot to collect the sun and her thoughts for a new verse she'll take back to the Queen and court for the evening.
This is Lady of The White Thorn. This tiny fairy is the protector of the white thorn, a special tree in County Clare that sat alone in a vast meadow of green. Workers refused to cut it down, for it was the site of a fairy dwelling.
This is Beach Rose White Fairy. Her skirt is perfumed by the rose petals gathered by the sea and the adornments are wildflowers; she is the sweetest smelling fairy, long after the flowers have gone by. She is a close ally to the Merrow, the sea fairies who communicate with their counterparts on land.
