Fairy Godmother Extraordinaire

A few months ago my neice
'Lola'
was born.
She was baptised on Sunday and I
was thrilled to be asked to take on the
lifelong task and honour of being her
Godmother.



I now am the proud Godmother to
Hannah, Phoebe, Grace, Tuilelaith and Lola.

Phew!!! So many God daughters.
No boys....?

I don't mind though,
Rarely have I had the chance of being proper girlie
being a mother of boys
and sister to brothers,
even my cousins are all boys!

So in honour of being
Fairy Godmother once again
(Claire smiles to herself feeling all warm and lovely)
this post is having a bit of a theme...

'Fairies'

Do you believe in fairies?

Have you ever been to the bottom of the garden
looking for them???

Shhhh don't frighten her away...
I managed to 'snap' this one from my very own garden.



I have a few
Flower Fairy prints.





But the above pictures are all from
this lovely book




If you look closely at the pictures of the
Flower Fairies above
you may notice that they are embroidered!
I've checked this book is available for all you
book junkies on the various book selling websites!

Flower Fairies even have their
very own website!

Whilst getting my 'Fairy Fix' on here
I stumbled upon this gorgeous
website



Visit her for lots of GORGEOUS things
to download and print off...
BE WARNED THOUGH
seriously scrummy things to do,
perfect for us crafty girls,
or rainy day things to do with the children.




"When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born its first laugh becomes a fairy. So there ought to be one fairy for every boy or girl."

James Matthew Barrie (Peter, in Peter Pan, act 1)




 
"...because you see They live in nests on the tops of trees; and the mauve ones are boys and the white ones are girls, and the blue ones are just little sillies who are not sure what they are."

James Matthew Barrie (Peter Pan, Chapter 17)

Hello Fairy Godmother!!

Of course I believe in fairies, whenever anyone sneezes I always say "you just killed a fairy"!

Tink is my favourite, such a little cutie and how I love Flower Fairies. I had one which my mum claimed looked like me and she brought a Christmas outfit and it was the fairy on top of our tree for a long time, it'll be my tree fairy this year :o)

I used to adore the flower fairy books as a child,the illustrations are so beautiful.I was told that every time you told a lie,a fairy dies!
Being asked to be a Godmother is such an honour.I am Godmother to one of my nieces and a friends son,which is lovely as I don't have any children of my own,and I can spoil them!
Bella would LOVE to have a romp with your boys!

Bellaboo ;o)
