Willa and I have been fawning over this book from the library - Cicely Mary Barker's Flower Fairies of the Summer. Our land is covered in buttercups right now, so you can imagine who is a favorite around here lately.
This led to our own (a-hem) discovery of a fairy house. We have been leaving offerings of buttercups and azaleas. And Willa woke from a nap - to find four acorn shells filled with teeny-tiny, white bridal wreath blossoms within a tiny wicker basket. Needless to say, I am having a blast with this imaginary world. And all of the rain also makes for an extra mossy, lichen-covered fairy house. Which is totally awesome.
On that note, later this week - aging stuff with moss milkshakes!
