...fairy dancers

...hello my sweets!

the beautiful sun was out today
so were the fairies
 that usually stay hidden in my house!

let me sprinkle you with fairy dust
so that you may see them too!!

...close your eyes...

(me, blowing fairy dust!!)

here we goooooo...

have you ever seen
a stained glass fairy??

now you have:)
don't you just pink puffy heart her crown?!

and dear readers...
I'm going to confess something to you...
something i have never shared with anyone else!
I have a secret fetish ~

I simply

yes, it's true!
they are the tiny ballerinas found in little girl musical jewelry boxes,
that I can never seem to find!
I seek high and lo for them
whenever I spy with my little eye a tiny jewelry box,
I twirl with sheer glee in anticipation that one may be inside!!!!
(now you'll know who I am if you ever observe this phenomenon!!)
((it's ok, I'm used to people always looking at me strangely!!))
I have been searching for years for a manufacturer of these beauties
but have never been able to find just where I can buy them...
 do any of you dear readers know of any?
I would be VERY grateful!!

moving on.

these vintage powder compacts fascinate me...
like beauty lockets, full of the prettiest shades of powder

and when you open them
...oh what magic contained inside!

~ fairy dust ~
to make us glow:)
(where do you think I got that magic fairy dust that I sprinkled all over you, hhhhmmmmm???!)

and really ~
is there any other number to wear??!
(I should think NOT!)
do you think maybe Chanel could have been inspired?


and I simply knew I'd love this vintage book
covered in a fabulous fabric,
aged to perfection!

who knew tiny fairy wings would be tucked within the pages
but alas,
none of them are my size

I just love it when the fairies come out to play,
don't you?!!

and don't worry about the magic dust...
the happy, glee twirling will wear off ~
in a day or two!!

  1. Dear Rosemary,
