Fairy Land

Welcome to Fairy Land. I hope you enjoy my very late entry in the Cloche Party at Marty’s, A Stroll Through Life. It’s also my early entry for Susan’s Tablescape Thursday.
Fairies 045
My daughter and I spent an entire day putting this tablescape together. It was a snow day – no school! We pulled  little friends from all over the house.

…please let us in.

It’s very snowy out there.
Fairies 107
Way too cold out there.

The leaf shaped lavender plates provided the perfect place for a fairy to land for the day.
Fairies 047
I used a collection of mismatched silver plate collected through the years. It just seemed to match the whimsy of the tablescape.

The napkin rings of twiggy branches with amethyst crystals helped build the fairy forest – indoors.
Fairies 042
All of the fairies got to play.
Fairies 041
Some danced, some sang.

Tinker Bell loved the company, amongst the mushrooms and flowers.

A little seraphim joined the merriment.
Fairies 011
This little fairy hopped in the petal creamer.
Fairies 009
Is this the Queen of the fairies?
Fairies 027
Oh please let me out, so I may fly about…
Fairies 001
…amongst the ivy and fairy lights.

We hope you’ve enjoyed visiting fairy land, as much as we enjoyed creating it.

You make my morning, Lady Fairy? I just get up and feel so cold. I still have my flu since a week.

I was at Laurie's site and saw the cloche party. I love cloche and have some simple collection. I will join you next party.

Thanks for the beautiful & whimsy settings ideas.

Oh Sweetie...
I so loved this post. I spent quite a bit of time just adoring the fairies. They are so special and each has her own personality and look about her. I love them inside of the cloches. They are just devine sweetie.

What fun you and dear daughter must have had putting this together, laughing, visiting, making memories together. I love is so much and just looking at it, I can tell you had a wonderful time.

I can't pick a favorite one, as they are all equally beautiful. We can never single out just one.

Good minds think alike I have always heard and I am so tickled mine was on the same wave length as yours. Thank you for sharing sweetie. I so love this post.

Country hugs and much love...Sherry
