This wee fairy only comes out in the fall, when the rath is preparing to harvest before they go underground for the winter. She likes to hide in the damp forests and forest edges.
The bodice is made from dried grass and birchand the lovely variagated skirt is the natural changing colors of the high cranberry bush in Autumn. She is one of a kind and I think, one of the prettiest fairies I can make this time of year.
Here is some up close detail of the bodice and skirt.
I will have this fairy and other handcrafted ones for sale for Maine Craft Weekend Oct. 2-3. Stay tuned for details.
