Common Garden Fairies Have Feelings Too!

Do you believe in magic? The other day, whilst chatting with one of my garden fairies about what kind of flowers to plant the garden with this season, I happened to casually mention that I thought she was common. Oh my! What a mistake that was and it stirred quite a furry in the studio.

I can tell you that little sprite flew around the room like mad woman on fire and I've got the cuts on my forehead to prove it! She buzzed me so many times I'm surprised my hair isn't spiked by now although I am hopeful that my missing eyebrow will grow back. YIKES!!

Fairies! They can be so sensitive! After all, my use of the word common was not meant to imply ordinary nor did I intend for it to be derogatory in any way. You really don't want to upset your fairies like this because they have abilities far beyond what could be termed common or ordinary. She simply required nothing more than my acknowledgement of that. I'm in deep trouble now because if I thought she was good at hiding my craft supplies before, it will be doubly so now.

We've agreed it would be best if she find a home in another garden, one where the humans at least treated her like the uncommon princess she really is, one where her talents could truly be appreciated. However, she won't be cheap! Gosh, if I even mention that who knows what will happen next. This fairy is willful, stubborn, mischievous, playful, an utter delight, beautiful, magical and looking for love someplace besides my studio.

She is sure to bring you joy, share many uplifting conversations with you and add opulent beauty to your flower garden. She may not look like anything more than a paper art doll to you but I assure you, she will animate if you are ready to see and believe. Visit artful*paper*doll on eBay for more details and your chance to entice her over to your garden.

Hi Kitty Kellie!
I've been researching fairies. I've always considered them busy and caught up in their own tiny tasks, uninterested in the big booted humans who stomp around the garden in the morning. Your fairy is very elegant, all duded up in princess wear! So cute!

Ohhhohhhh...never say the "C" word in front of a paper fairy, never!!!! I have a couple and one of them is my beloved grandmother whose gorgeous photo I scanned and transformed into a lovely fairy under glass! Grandma is fair from......shhhhhh

Lovely, magical, whimsical at its best dearest Kitty!

Bisous and have a smashing day! Anita
