WHERE DO YOUR FAERIES LIVE?



That was the question posed to begin another project with Paper Whimsy
Hmmmmm......

Well, gosh.............I seem to have many living in all sorts
of creative places.

Some are reclusive and others boldly flit around
without care.

That is, until you-know-who is on the prowl




Anyhow, the most amusing set of faerie sisters hide out in the closet pantry.

I found them quite by accident one night when I wanted a little morsel
but nothing much and not too sweet.

Remembering I had stashed a box
of animal crackers in the pantry, I went hunting.

Wait!! The box looked a bit odd.......and there were crumbs all around the box.

Yikes..
what could be nibbling my cookies???????????????

And then I spied them.
Sleeping soundly on a little bed they had fashioned
from bits of my silk and snippets of ribbon.

Two feathers at the head of the bed to create a gorgeous faerie headboard.

Even a bit of handmade paper for a colorful rug.

Those rascals!!!

Looking inside I could see they also 'borrowed' some of my Paper Whimsy images.

I WONDERED WHAT HAD BECOME OF THEM AFTER CUTTING THEM OUT SO CAREFULLY!



Look how they made little curtains out of the woven cloth handle that used to be on the box...very clever sisters.



Well, I could hardly be mad.
Look at their faces.





I confess I bring them more animal crackers from time to time

and I keep the pantry door closed

so you-know-who will not find them




That would be bad.

In a few days I will find out which of my
PW sisters I will ship these rascals off to

You see, it's a one on one swap
and we will find out on the 30th
who we are mailing to.

Seems they knew the best place to honker down! The pantry sounds good to me. They are precious and I'm sure you will be sad to see them leave. But I'm sure more will show up after word spreads that you have the best pantry in all the land!
