A Garden Fairy and Other Treasures!

Last weekend we had an adorable little fairy come to play in our garden.

She fluttered and twirled from flower to flower.

She skipped and hopped.

She stopped to smell the flowers.

She stopped to contemplate all that she saw.

Our little granddaughter Jessie makes such a cute little fairy in our garden.

Another treasure- I found these dishes at the Reed House Antiques in Tryon P.E.I. on a tour day we took. I love the soft colors and the pretty shape.

I thought they were a bargain at $35. for all these dishes.

They are made in England.

It is our fundraiser garden tour tomorrow and the weatherman is predicting not only rain but thunder squalls as well. I hope he is wrong but I'm digging out my umbrella just in case. We have three grandchildren spending the night on Saturday and three little one's being baptized on Sunday with a family lunch here after,my sister is arriving on Monday,and a tea and dessert garden tour on Tuesday. So, you might not hear from me for a few days butI hope you have a happy weekend too!

Take care,

Hi Carolyn,
You're going to have a busy weekend. I haven't seen Pauline since I was a girl! Your little garden fairy is a very pretty little girl! And what lovely dishes you found; a very delicate blue. I love the teapot; it's a beautiful shape! Thanks for sharing today and have a wonderful weekend.

Carolyn, God Bless you!
You have a very busy few days ahead of you. I hope the tour goes well.

This is wonderful about the wee little ones and baptism. Sounds like a close knit family! Blessings to all involved.

The Garden Fairy pics are soooooo cute. She's a beauty and you've captured this.

How very lovely your dishes are, especially the gorgeous teapot. Like the pics.

Talk to you soon,

Your grandchildren will have wonderful memories of days spent with you! The dishes are a great find; I am always looking for teapots and plates! Go outside and tell the north wind man (you remember those pictures don't you?) to blow the rain way to the south; we will gladly take it!!

What an adorable fairy!

I love your new china -- it's wonderful (but I love anything blue and white!)

Good luck on your tour -- it rained the morning of ours in June -- but then turned into a beautiful day!

I have a 1 year old and a 6 month old grand daughter, and I've already bought fairy wings and skirts for them. I will be so dissappointed if they won't wear them someday!

Kim said...

What a beautiful fairy!!! I just love the photos. There is such an innocence in the photos. And I love the new dishes. Great find I would say. I will look forward to your return after such a busy weekend. But you can't ask for more than being with family in such a beautiful environment.

What a beautiful garden fairy your daughter makes! Beautiful photos, too!

I love how you put the lovely crocheted doily over the cake pedestal for the teapot! Very pretty! :)

Brenda said...

She is positively cherubic, your little golden-haired angel! Sweet pink cheeks and fairy wings and grandma to love her.

June said...

That is certainly one of the cutest faeries I've ever seen.
And your pictures of her are so lovely.
I really love the pattern of that china. Just beautiful.

Beverly said...

It must be wonderful having such a beautiful little fairy for your very own.

I hope the show goes well, and that you don't have bad weather.

God bless you and your family on such a special baptism day.
