A note to forest fairies : Pondering this week's theme of miniature for artwords, I was recalling my most favourite magazine of the recent past, Victoria. This particular cover is over 10 years old. I believe I only missed one or two of the magazines in the entire time it was being published. I feel proud to own this treasure. I was very touched by one particular story of someone that made tiny houses and furniture from objects of nature. They were building homes for fairies and enjoyed putting them in places throughout their yard that were somewhat hidden. This is my first attempt with found items. They are quite fragile. The table actually lost one of its legs after I'd finished the photo shoot. I used bark, thin tree branches, flower petals (dried), tiny viola flowers, hollyhock flower and seedhead, and some old grape vine pieces. The top right hand photo shows a forest of grass so you can get some idea of the size. The photos were taken by some moss on our front walk.
Dear fairy friends...

Ooooh, I'm on my way over for a spot of tea...! Your creations are so gorgeous, Wendy, no self-respecting fairy could refuse your invitation! I love that tiny table!
I'm off to the land of Pixies next week (there are lots of Cornish Pixies in the woods) and will write to you from there..

My Love & Warm Hugs 'til the next time. xXx Suzie xXx

Have a great time Suzie. I'll be thinking of you often. I would so love to visit with you and the pixies ~ not sure of how those mischievous ones would suit me. Hmm. I suspect we'd find you with them Nance ;.)

Cute little houses. I thought they quit producing Victoria; hmmmm... or maybe that was a different magazine...

windy angels said...

Yes, they did quit producing it. I was very sad.
I think they got a new editor and it just wasn't the same.
