A fairy CLEARLY rested on this rock...and quite recently too!The trail of fairy dust led us to a small fairy ring, and a few other little nooks. But the GASP didn't come until she saw the chair and tables. There was even a fairy book that was hastily left behind! It was a diary...call us snoops, but we just HAD to read it! The diary belonged to a fairy named Shimmer. She just moved here to get away from a gnome that was stealing all her fairy dust...how dare he! She was currently living with some baby bluebirds, but they were growing so fast she was running out of room. We saw the mommy bird earlier that day! In her last entry, she wished for a home of her own.Madeline, what did YOU find?A canoe! Or as Lillian first called it, a Kazoo!
Step 4: Leave a gift for the fairy.Lillian made this house all by herself. She painted each wall a different color...even blended them too. There is a bed inside and she decorated it with little baubles from around the house. Broken bits of this and that, but that were still beautiful. The magic keyhole we put on all the fairy houses we make. This glass bauble lets Shimmer know the house is hers and that Lillian made it for her. The glue was still drying, so wasn't clear yet.The door is hinged with fabric scraps and the doorbell is a jinglebell hung from an earring.Two charms that have fallen off and a bit from a broken tiara adorn the top of the house.
Ranger Marian has offered to look after Shimmer's house and keep it in good repair. Later Shimmer wrote a response to the note Lillian left in her diary...thanking her for the house and offering the diary as a gift. Here's a video Lillian wanted to make for you all about her little fairy house.
I highly suggest that one day, you go on a fairy hunt of your own! :)
