Some magical inhabitants are on the premises. They are quite delightful and belong to the family of cloth dolls made with wire armatures. They don't really need a whole lot of introduction because I think their personalities speak for themselves...and their makers.
A limited edition Wee Folk made

This is Lily of the Valley fairy
This is the Flower Maiden by Phoebe Wahl.
They are so photogenic...enjoy a few more photos!
They have made friends with various characters and creatures here.
There is always a party going on somewhere in the house. The characters mix and mingle and move around. If I am really lucky, they let me catch them at play!
Meanwhile, winter is about to descend on us. Most of the country has already felt winter's wrath with snow or cold. Well..it is almost winter and nearly Thanksgiving so it must be right on schedule!
Ready for Thanksgiving? The rest of the holidays? Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanza are not far away. Shall we all pledge to enjoy this time? The world could use some good cheer. If there is any chance at all to spread goodwill, the time is now.
Pour a cup of coffee or tea or whatever you like, and think about the holidays... and how we can make them special for others.
In that way, we make them special for ourselves!
