More flower petals have arrived and are being put away this evening. Lots of large gerber daisies, some hot pink pom poms, tiny little roses in peaches and yellows and a garland of purple flowers with lots of green leaves.
We were also blessed to have another 'care' package arrive all the way from San Francisco -- thank you so much Sharin :) There is always a great big hype when one of her parcels arrive. We all gather around the table (and those that can't make it are right with us thank you to Skype) as we gently open the box up. This parcel contained more of our wonderful iridescent flower petals...but these ones are tiny so they will be placed on top to glitter and shine for all to see. More of the most vibrant and brilliant coloured magenta flowers. A whole box (yes, a whole box) of the prettiest and the sparkliest pipe cleaners I have ever seen! (and might I add, the faeries in the nursery sure have noted them too as we all know how much they love shiny things). Fabric swatches galore, more inspiration to start experimenting. Yards and yards of fantastic blue ribbon. Wonderful white tatted lace that will make beautiful skirts (thank goodness there is enough to go around as I am sure I will have to keep these tucked away so they don't go 'accidentally' missing and I end up finding them hidden throughout the nursery). The strangest metallic blue 'stuff'. I really don't know what it is...it reminds me of an SOS pad but it's blue and soft and gorgeous. I'm thinking it will look great in the new hairdo's the faeries have been sporting of late. Also tucked in the bottom were lots of Fimo flowers and goodies (too many to list). Again, a massive thank you and a big hug from all of us here at the faerie nursery to Sharin. We all wish she lived a might bit closer so she could come and play in the nursery as well.
