Today was a magical day.
Filled with fairy dust, just like that bottle, which you might recognize from my Halloween Party. (It contains the dust from a honeysuckle fairy). Anyway....:)
Don't you just love your own little nooks? Places you can cozy into and lose yourself in a book or a fantasy? I have created one for myself, and built it up as a place of childish delight, so whenever I look at it I just smile.
My Tiny Tea Room!
A chaotic whirl of colors and magic ;)
A closer look?
This is the picture lovely Jenn from Broomsticks and Lace (visit her blog here) made for me during an art exchange. I love him! He is providing the backdrop for the fairy nook right now :)
Jenn also sent me some lovely cards from Vanessa over at A Fanciful Twist and they are beautiful! Vanessa takes amazing pictures :) And the ones of her Mad Tea Party are favorites of mine :)
Last but not least, Jenn also sent me some little trinkets which I keep in one of my nonsense jars. (Also inspired by Vanessa--read more here). It isn't very full yet, but I'm working up to it :) Silly little nonsense things that makes us smile are so important to keep and cherish. (By the way, my Wish Jar is near explosion, stuffed full with so many wishes. I hope to release them on the day of A Fanciful Twist's Mad Tea Party this coming June.)
And I didn't photograph it, but Jenn sent me the novel Peter Pan in French. What a delight!
As for fairy nooks....
I saw this little house at the store and simply had to have it. I couldn't pass the opportunity up!
A little fairy house, for a little fairy. I decorated the inside with a cozy candle, just in case a fairy wanted to curl up....
I got two knew ones. I have all the rest of the Hannah Swensen baking mystery novels, and when I saw that the newest one was out, I just had to grab it. That's the Cinnamon Roll Murder. The other one, Wings, I just bought today. I've been hearing about it recently (plus I saw a comment from the author, Aprilynne Pike, on the cover of Entwined, one of my favorite books, so I figured it was worth looking into. We'll see! I'm halfway through Cinnamon Roll Murder, and have yet to discover the killer. Should be good!
If you have read them and want to give me a little review of what you thought, feel free! And if you haven't read them, check them out! It's worth it!
Reading is amazing. I love it so much. If you aren't a reader, I feel sorry for you.
P.S. There is an art surprise coming up....teehee :)
