Creating a cradle for fairy babies.

She worked peacefully for 40 minutes on her own.

Dandelions were used for cushions.

This was my favorite house. (made by someone else)

I liked this one too, with feathers and moss.

This crazy thing I loved.

Cleaning out our garden.

Our fire.

We had such a lovely May Day. We went to Blithewold for Fairy day again this year. We missed the beginning because I forgot, but we did make it there in time for almost everything. Penelope had her face painted, made a fairy cake, fairy wand, fairy dolls, and chose a fairy name (Rosetta). She danced around the maypole a whole lot, rolled down the hill so many times, and built a fairy house. The cuteness of tons of little children dressed in their own versions of fairy dress was unbelievable. We were entertained by The Ladies of the Rolling Pin's strange but wonderful dances and music too.

When we got home Penelope and I cleaned out our garden and had a dinner picnic in the yard while baby slept. Then we got in our pajamas and headed back outside for a fire. It was a beautiful day, and I was so happy to spend it with my little fairies. I can't wait until next year when Violet can be more a part of it all. Though she enjoyed watching her sister dance the Maypole so much, squealing and cheering with joy.
