We’ve been putting on the finishing touches of our plans to celebrate Fairy Day on Wednesday. Today the girls and I made some no-sew tutu’s, and put the finishing touches on our fairy wear. You can see the instructions over at MommyBlessings.
Then we decided to invite the most important guests to our celebration. So we picked a few of our ripe raspberries.
Wrote a special note to the Fairies.
And took our journey to the nearby river. There we followed a secret and mostly hidden path.
Careful not to disturb the plants or hurt any living thing.
Soon we came to an old enchanted tree.
The boys and I found this tree a few years ago as we were searching the river bend for a band of roving pirates. We knew immediately it was an enchanting tree. Hollow nearly through and through yet it’s branches are still miraculously so full of vivid green life. When one of my favorite versions of Peter Pan hit the theaters I was stunned by the similarities it had to the Fairy Tree in Never, Never Land.
It is enchanting. Full of many many hollowed out chambers for it’s many fairy tenants.
I’m convinced that one day we too may glimpse the fairies here, or at least see some of the glimmer sparkling from their fairy homes.
We kept our visit short and left a little ribbon wrapped invitation for the fairies to join us on Mid-Summer’s Eve.
We also left some raspberries and a cup from our fairy tea set.
Hopefully they will be curious enough to take us up on our invitation.
When we took our leave of the enchanted tree Hope spied some pixie flowers on the ground.
I hope the fairies won’t be too upset that we picked some. The girls want to press them and make something magical.
Can you tell I’m excited for tomorrow. I’m such a kid – this is too much fun.
