“There are delightful possibilities in ferns
and mosses and woodsy things,” ~Lucy Maude Montgomery
Do you ever meet someone and think, this is a kindred spirit, straight away? I did when I met Lucy and Kris’ wedding florist. She was like a little fairy god mother creating beauty in the barn. I was immediately entranced by the woodland sweetness of her works and told her so. She was enamored with Harry and we got to talking a bit. She said, “haven’t you always wanted to be a woodland fairy princess?”
I do! I told her it was my favorite flower when I was a child and would search for it in the forest. And that I happened to just sew some trillium curtains for my house! She told me it was her birthday that Wednesday and that she was going to go to the forest with friends to go searching for trillium. (it’s very rare and illegal to pick because it’s endangered here.) “Isn’t it the most magical flower, with its three leaves?” she asked.
I planted it years ago. And this year, during the magic of Lucy’s wedding, the newborness of my 3rd baby, and on a fairy god mother’s birthday…it finally decided to grow. Or maybe she sent it to me to turn me into a woodland fairy princess…
Bippity boppity boo!
Now I just need to wait and see if a flower sprouts too. That would make my life!
Speaking of gardens and Fairy god mothers who turn rags into pretty dresses…. this dress showed up on mod cloth today. Have mercy! It’s called Hobby Hour Dress.
From the description: “Whether you’re building a birdhouse, sewing up a new skirt, or pressing petals from the garden, you always take some time out of your busy day to hone your craft.” Says to wear it with a cute belt and red shoes. I have those! AND I’m an avid hobbyist! I bet I could find similar fabric for less than $217.99 :)
Have you ever pressed petals before? I have in journals and books but I can never seem to get them just right. (Save for my framed Scottish four leaf clover!) Here’s a pretty pic from my meadow pinboard on pinterest. I wish I could achieve something like this! The bleeding hearts are fantastic.
I had a dream I had to find a spiky blue flower for a quest last night. Everyone in the wedding party was with me in some sort of Dark Crystal type adventure. My brain is just FILLED with this type of stuff right now! So many muses!
Aaaaand do you need to see a cute picture of Hare?
Q4U: what’s blooming near you right now?
