Walking with the lantern

Hi there. I went out for a walk, took my lantern and left my  tutu back home. What a big, stinky jerk. Ugh. My stupid, little brother.  I am NOT buying him a Christmas gift this year. Forget it. Thanks for nothing, Marcus. Sheesh.

Hang on. Did you hear that? WHAT IS IT? It sounds like someone screaming really loudly…very loudly, actually. What is going on? Wait…who’s this in my seat? Marcus! IF THAT’S YOU, I AM GOING TO PUNCH YOU SO HARD!

Wood Elf #1: Meredith! Please be careful with the Magic Christmas Owl!

Meredith: Okay. Here you go, little owl. Sit right here next to your buddy in the red suit.

The Wood ElvesElf in the red suit: Here you go, little bird.

Meredith: Hello, Wood Elves! How are you?

Wood Elf in the yellow hat: We’re good. Just getting ready for Christmas. We’re decorating the forest and wait…did you hear that? I think it’s your mom, Meredith. Calling you for dinner.

Meredith: I know. I heard her. I guess I should get going. WAIT! Look at that! AWWWW!

The flying men?

Man, I have been reading this awesome golden book all about Las Vegas. Apparently this is a real place quite a ways a way from The Land of the Fairies. It’s also quite a hike from the Tooth Fairy Museum in Illinois. I don’t think I can sneak away while on my school trip to Las Vegas, but I would love to try. I mean, look at this place! Sparkly lights and flying fairy men.

Advent 2014 – Day 2, A Fancy Staff

So, I borrowed this from my mom.

Magic Staff

This is one of her many magic staffs (not staphs. OOF. Don’t google that. You’re welcome.). She has so many, I’m pretty sure she won’t miss this one. I’m just borrowing it. I’m don’t even know it works. All I know is that it will help on our adventures! When we leave the Land of the Fairies and go…wherever we go…Faye and I are still in our planning stage. We’ve got plenty of planning to do.

It’s tough to find information about what’s outside our native lands. My dad had some limited information about what’s out there, but it’s under lock and key in the Fairy Science Lab.

Feeling crafty

November 16, 2014

Here is yesterday’s purchase from the vintage, junking Christmas flea market we went to. I love the shape of the Christmas ornaments and the packaging. These are going to look great on our white Christmas tree. I was tempted to start decorating the tree, but exercised restraint. Instead, I tried them out on the cedar […]

November 2, 2014

It’s pretty much the most fun I’ve ever had at a graveyard. I had no idea what to […]

The thrill of the hunt

October 21, 2014

I snapped this photo on the photowalk where we ended up shopping in thrift stores down by the water. And the only reason we walked up the street was to see if there were more thrift stores. What can I say? We’re hooked on reducing, recycling and reusing. Also, I think it’s the thrill of […]

How to eat a turkey dinner

October 13, 2014

While the turkey is roasting in the oven, set the table with as many containers as possible that have lids on them. Also, have the squirt bottle nearby as to keep any cats off the table. Since we only set the table twice a year, the cats were curious as to what was happening.  Eventually […]
