The Fairy Specimen
This little fairy must have been very important to someone, who took the time to create a shrine for her tucked away in the Mockingbird Manor Forest.
Mockingbird Manor is chock full of fairies so I'm really not surprised that I have come upon this. What sort of fairies, you ask? We have naughty fairies who like to play trixies on everyone, nice fairies who leave surprises for the kidlets in the most interesting places, and old-bat-Southern-grouchy-lady fairies who love to try to make everyone just as irritable as they are. Let me tell you......when the naughty fairies hang out with the Ghosts from the Old Cemetery who enjoy partying at the Manor and those crazy old-bat-Southern-grouchy-lady fairies start drinking - watch out because that's when things disappear from my studio and horrendous messes are made from one end of the house to the other! Those ghosts are a *bad* influence.
So what do you think? Would this have been a naughty, nice or grouchy fairy? I'm inclined to think she was a nice fairy - perhaps with a penchant for mischief!
An awful lot of care was taken to make this fairy doll shrine out of a teeny, tiny little coffin. Just look how the stitched leaf ribbon has grown around it, her sparkly glitter wings and just a glimmer of fire polished Czech beads at her feet. I do believe that much of this came from my studio! There is that gorgeous tulip bead cap and mini lily that I was missing - and those clever fairies used my seaweed fiber set for the grass!
Ah well. I can't complain too much about the lifting of my supplies. At least it was all used to make something unique and left for me to find!
