".. from my ragged heart to yours"

*It*WaS*tHe*PeRfeCt*DaY*To*CapTuRe*A*FaiRy*

Dear Friends,
I was looking out my front window
and there on a small stone
stood a wee fairy!

I went outside to get a closer look~
she moved in closer too ~
and ~

I captured her in a small
glass jar.

But I couldn't bear to put a
lid on the jar ~
so I let her free to fly
around in my studio.

She quickly made friends
with my spool fairy.

I found a nice soft
candle box for her to
sleep in ~
but, she asked to be
taken back to the flower garden ~

So I let my small fairy friend
fly away free ~

Because like me,
she seems
more content to be free
to enjoy nature's greenery.










I spent the rest of the afternoon
making two little boxes
filled with tiny creations
for beloved friends.


Many Blessings!`
