Parcels from Afar

It was a wonderful week for my Teacup Nurseries in the mail

Today, I received a 'care package' from my Mom :)  You know the day is always going to full of sunshine and smiles when there is mail from Mom!!

In my care package today, she sent me 9 beautiful china teacups. Stuffed all around those teacups are flower petals galore and more wonder yarn to for hair for the petal faeries.

Also arriving this week were more little houses, wee little flowers on wires, porcelain turtles, tiny bits of abalone, miniature rocks and the tiniest little fall leaves I have ever seen.


I can't wait to start getting these put together. I have come up with the best way to ship them as well.

Each individual Teacup Nursery sold will come with it's own matching petal faerie to the teacup. As well, you will get to create and decorate your own nursery. All the products will come in wee little plastic baggies so you can make it yourself. I will supply you a teacup with the floral foam already cut (once I perfect trying to judge how to cut it to fit!) and all the little goodies it will take to decorate it. As I am still collecting items I don't want to list them just yet, but soon :)

Oh, Oh! You know it's going to be a long day when.....

Guess I have no one else to blame but myself :(

So here it is the day of Summer Solstice and a stat holiday to boot for Aboriginal Day. Great day to do a bit of dusting and cleaning around the house. The temperature in the shade is reading 26.8 C, I have no clue what it is in the sunshine. We have the softest of breezes that are making all the new leaves whisper. So....what do I do....what everyone would do. I open a few windows to let the nice warm summer air in to make the house smell nice.

That was my first mistake.

Next, I knew I couldn't stay in the workshop ALL day so I went to do a bit of washing and tidying up.

That was my second mistake.

Next, I heard the dogs, Fionn & Ciaran making an awful racket out on the front patio. It seems not only our little squirrel was out there but he had brought a friend along with him. Well, I swear all of the nattering could have woken up the whole neighbourhood. It was so nice out, that I decided it would be a nice break to sit on the stairs and watch the squirrels chase each other in the trees.

That was my third and final mistake.

Off back to the nursery workshop and what did I find there? NOTHING! NOTHING at all. And you ask, what do you mean NOTHING at all. ALL of the faeries had found the open window and out they went to enjoy the day!!

I sit here shaking my head....but it was my own fault!!

LESSON of the day: Little faeries when they don't want to be found...WON'T BE found!
