Early Pixies

The past few days have been exhausting in the very best way. I've been busy, working and tinkering, yanking weeds, putting laundry on the line. My minutes have become precious. But there's something to be said for being tired at the end of the day. There's a sort of goodness in weary feet.

Yesterday morning I discovered a gang of stone goblins beneath the shrubbery. By dusk more wee folk revealed themselves. A little village of pixie cottages popped up between the trunks of the maple and locust trees in front of the house.  

I'm sure they think they are clever with their polka dotted roofs, hiding near the toadstools.

And they are rather clever! They've picked a spot where they will be protected by the elements but able to spy on all of our visitors. They've tidied their little plot neatly and have even done a little landscaping. I'm sure they will be fine neighbours. 


  1. You are such a fun person, Nichola. It makes me want to make some fairy folk house's out of the "paper pulp" egg carton that I've been saving. I'll just turn it back into paper pulp and give it new shape. Love your "roofs"........great idea. Thanks, Sherry

  2. I love LOVE your imagination.

  3. I love LOVE your imagination.

  4. I want to live in your world! Love all of the wee treasures.

  5. Crafty little pixies lol! We loves them we do.
