Special Finds?

After dreaming up making little Faerie Princes and then making them come to life, I can say that they have made a wonderful addition to the Faerie Nursery.

My only issue with them so far is that they seem to be VERY holiday oriented. As I never want my Faeries to be associated with only Christmas...this has become a big dilemma for me. I have been trying to figure out what I could have the little Princes holding in their arms that weren't just acorns and pinecones.

After speaking with my husband on this issue, he reminded me that Faeries love to steal and collect all bits of little goodies. So in my quest for finding wee little things, I managed to save these few items that I can incorporate when making the Princes.

I will be on the lookout for bottle caps, miniatures and lots of shiny things :)


Over the past couple of weeks, I have managed to get out of the north for one reason or another. During these two quick visits back to civilization I came across two amazing finds for the nursery.

We all know the size of a regular porcelain china teacup with the average height being around 3" to 3.5" tall depending on the manufacturer. Well that being said, I was able to purchase 8 more teacups which made me extremely happy.

On that note....while out and husband while snooping around in the stores for me, came across what I thought were the most adorable 'little' teacups I had ever seen!! These little beauties are only 2" tall!! Can you believe that? I have never seen anything like it. So yes, even though they did cost a bit more, how could I refuse? Yeah....of course, I couldn't and didn't.

On this trip out here again just wandering around little tiny shops, this time I was the one to find the treasures. Sitting in the back of a glass cabinet were 4 more 'little' teacups. Okay, so I know...that doesn't sound like anything new!! But, I shall re-phase that last statement....there were 4 'wee little' teacups to be found. Now I is the driving force here and I really have to be careful to not spend more on a product than what I will be able to sell it for, but really.....would you have been able to walk away from teacups that stand less than 1.5"?? Come on now, you can be truthful...of course not and again...either could I.

My only issue now is...I thought that I was going to have a hard time finding any little castles or trees or anything for that matter for the middle size...what on earth am I going to decorate the tiniest ones with??
