Flower faerie infestation!

Speaking of old photos...

Many people in old photos have a certain charm, a sort of magic about them. I wonder if the darlings in these old black and white photos knew they'd come back to life as garden fairies? 

In any case, here are a bunch of oldies infesting my garden and flower pots Cottingley style.

I'm taking their appearance as a sign that the summer solstice is just around the corner.

I'm also counting my blessings that the gooseberries and currents haven't ripened yet because I'm sure they'd have gobbled them all up!

Any sightings of winged things in your neck of the woods yet?

P.S. Here's a pic of Pixie Hill looking mighty pretty just because xo


  1. These fairies are gorgeous Nichola, and your flowers and house are looking magical as well. And Happiest Birthday to you all year long!!! xoxoxoxoxoxo

  2. Fabulous idea! I'm going to try this with black and white pics of my nieces. Thank you for sharing!

  3. Lovely wee fairy folk. I just got some of those acetate wings from Tim and have a whole bunch of paper dolls to try out these wings. They are very cool. Love your yard, looks like spring has definitely sprung :) Have a great Wednesday.

  4. Ooh, how lovely. Pixie Hill looks magical all on its own.
