This past October I was asked to attend a fairy themed birthday party my friend was throwing for her two daughters. The invite was a little different as I was not going as a guest but the entertainment. What is a fairy party without a real fairy?! My friend knew I already had the outfit, accessories, glitter and wings ready to go and asked me if I would dress up and add some magic to the party. How could I say no?
120 years ago, Cicely Mary Barker was born June 28, 1895 in Croydon, England. She was an English illustrator who was best known for her Flower Fairies. You may have seen many of her illustrations and highly popular series of children’s books today.
It’s that time of year again when we celebrate a beautiful day dedicated to the fairies! Fairy day is a holiday celebrated all around the world from the imagination of artist Jessica Galbreth. I remember seeing her work back when I first became aware of the Fae and it really inspired me to look more into the world of fairies. Every year I’ve tried to acknowledge this day as a reminder that there’s always time to appreciate the magic in our lives. Celebrate today by looking closely at the magic around you. Those who don’t look for magic will never find it.
Wishing you all a very magical and happy Valentine’s Day! My hunny buns surprised me with a fox stuffy, pancake breakfast and chocolate this morning! Woo hoo! How did you celebrate?
