    Lovely weekend to you! :)

  8. Congrats to Debra!!!! Thank you for sharing your lovely fairy and photo - a mushroom up in a tree! THAT I've not seen before!

  9. I love how soft and delicate your fairy is. I see you've been using a lot of pink lately. Feeling a bit melancholic? I do that sometimes, being Pisces an all...haha!

  10. It is so damp here that we have mushrooms popping up all over the place - especially the fairy ring kind, which clearly means that the Fae are in my garden dancing nightly and leaving trails of magic in the dew!

    What a beautiful fairy you have created today. I wonder if I'll find her in my garden?

  11. Beautiful poetry Tammie... love your uplifting, inspiring nature.x

  12. i like your mushroom fairy, I like the pose and the way she is holding her palms.

  17. for all of you that are curious about the mushroom in the tree.... yes squirrels like to squirrel them away in trees. I have seen them do it, storage i guess. I wonder if they remember to go back for them!

  25. Dear Tammie,
    I shall look up more often.....I find my squirrels like to take the grapes I set out for the birds...They do not eat them they just put them here and there around the yard. Silly squirrels. Wonderful Fairy..I love her shoes!
