Fairies and elves and gnomes...


Hello ladies... I know I have not been around much lately...  to be totally honest, without sounding like a big baby, I am still hurting some from my fall...  nothing serious, but my bum still hurts!... and that makes it hard to do so many things I like to do...  Tessy and I are still taking our trail walks, a different trail though... and walking a bit slower...  I am... Tessy still goes warp 10!... and since she is always on a leash, I must try to keep up with her!... our weather is cold in the mornings, then warming up to almost 50 in the afternoon, which is so nice!...  I have walked my gardens a bit and a few things are coming up, like my little daffodils which makes me smile...  thoughts of Spring are dancing through my head as I see new little buds swelling on my Royal Crabapple trees...  and hints of green and reddish growth on some of my shrubs...  so, with Springy thoughts in mind, I dream about my flowers and the flower~fairies that inhabit my gardens as well...  one thing leads to another... and soon I was creating my own little flower fairies and gnomes these past few weeks...


I love fairies and elves...  gnomes and little sprites... and am having so much fun bringing some to life...


I love make believe, fairytales...  happily~ever~afters...  wait, they are not make believe!... they are real!...  I believe, I do, I do!...


This little guy just may be my most favoritist yet...  the "keeper of the forest"...  he lives way back deep in the woods...  has for years...  watches over the trees... and all of God's creatures who call the forest home as well...


I think I would do well living deep in the forest...  amongst the tall pines... quiet and calm... with just the sound of birdsong drifting through the trees... surrounded by deer and rabbits...  foxes and raccoons... all the little critters I so love...  I will be making more of these little gnomes and fairies and listing some in my Etsy shop soon...  do you believe in the magic of fairies and elves and gnomes?...  I am wishing that you do...  xoxo...

Spring dreams...


The sun is shining...  the days are getting longer...  and although it is very cold here today, beautiful thoughts of Spring are dancing about in my head... as I  not~so~patiently await the days when my gardens look like this once more... bliss... happiness...  peacefulness...  serenity... my little sanctuary I share with all of God's precious little garden creatures who visit here as well...   


Ms. Gertrude Jekyll is anxious for Spring also... isn't she stunning!... sending lots of beautiful Spring dreams your way...  xoxo...
