Do you believe in fairies?
Not only because it's a wonderful diversion from
a sometimes mundane life...
But because, last year, during this month,
I saw one!!!
running walking outside to our clothesline
(no fancy-pants dryer for us....it's Arizona! we don't need one!!)
it was about 2 p.m. & overcast
I was avoiding any and all bugs...
not gonna lie, I don't like them
my hair is dark, wavy and long
(perfect habitat for dark, wavy legged creatures)
To deter bugs, I usually go outside
eyes squinted, arms akimbo, legs pumping manically .
you should see the way the mailman looks at me!
Anyhow, on this particular day, it was too hot to bother.
Bug's be damned.
I walked outside like a regular human
& a little bright blue-white light flew passed me
Instinctively, I went into swatting mode
but before I could start swinging my arms
the light flew back towards me
right up to my face
I couldn't tell you what it looked like...
other than a tiny light floating in front of me.
it didn't buzz
it didn't move like an insect
it didn't fly up my nose or in my hair
there wasn't a figure, buggish or otherwise, to it.
It flew in front of me a few feet then zoomed off into the trees.
(wish I'd had my camera with me)
no one believes me...
you believe me don't you?
Well, whether you do or you don't the whole reason for this post
is because I wanted to show you some fairy books I have.
(I just got distracted describing my defensive bug walk/fairy sighting.)
This one is so neat!
It has gorgeous artwork and several different fairy-tales,
including one of my favorites...
Helena has been itching to play with this book.
It even has a little envelope attached to the back
This one is actually a pop up book!
again, the illustrations are absolutely stunning.
I remember I read the yellow fairy book
and the red fairy book in the third grade.
I was at Barne's and Noble recently and saw this one.
Just love these covers!!
This one has my all time favorite story,
'Hansel and Gretel'
(it's the candy house that I'm in love with, I think the witch was framed)
Alright...that's it for today
I'm off to make some tea and create some fairy art with Helena!
Oh and don't worry, I'm not taking up residence in tree tops or hedges to try and catch
a glimpse of fairy folk...not yet anyway!
See you in a few days:)
