What to make as a gift?
For a little girl having journeyed to the significant age of 7.
A little girl who lives in the world of faeries,
spending much of her time outdoors, with her brothers.
My boys had a wonderful idea, and together we created ~
A 4 poster Fairy Bed. Essential for Tooth Fairy, luxury garden stop overs.
Complete with a woollen mattress, felt pillow and blanket.
Detail of a gumnut night lamp attached to the post.
A seed pod canoe with popsicle stick oars.
(It really floats)
When it rains here - it pours.
Puddles may need to be negotiated.
A branch bench chair. Seats several faeries I am told
(because real faeries are "So Teensy")
And I wanted to include my own gift.
A baby gumnut faerie.
With delicate wings.
I had already thought of making wee gumnut babies,
when I was drilling out the large gum nuts recently.
I think my first attempt is actually rather darling.
Accompanied by some crystals (in favourite colours)
and a length of hand-dyed yarn with a specially selected glass bead
(to wear as an anklet).
This was a well-received gift, full of thoughts of friendship and love.
