The Fairies visit

The fairies came and it looks like they had a wonderful time!  Our fairy house just doesn’t look the same : )  There must have been some rambunctious fairies visiting.

They did leave behind some treasures so I'm hoping they had a grand time.

(I had a lot of fun making these for the girls. I wasn't sure if I could knit a pony but it didn't turn out to bad for a first attempt. I got the pattern from the book Toymaking with children by Freya Jaffke.   I also had some wool roving which became the girl : )  )

They also left a bag of candy which  Challee shared with the boys. They were pretty happy about that.  : ) Now its time to curl up and do some reading with the children.  I think perhaps we will read The Flowers Festival by Elsa Beskow and then I found this book called Legends From Fairyland By Holmes Lee. 

Have a wonderful Day!

Oh, what a lovely little pony! I really enjoy reading your posts about fairies, Elsa Beskow and little houses under trees...

And I hope you will pick seven wild flowers for the Rose Fairy Challenge.

Thank you so very much for your lovely lines, they warmed my heart.

Sending you sunshine and bird twitter from Southern Sweden,
