Midsummer


Midsummer's Eve and the girls have been busy! Letters to Queen Mab have been written, new shoes for the ball and fans to keep them cool have been made, spare wings have been painted, cakes have been baked, honeysuckle dew prepared, wild flowers have been picked and wishes have been made. All we need now is the fairies to come!

Hope you enjoy some Midsummer magic too!

What a gorgeous wreath, we haven't got round to celebrating midsummer in any way yet but it's something to look forward to!

And now you know why I envision England as a fairytale place in which to live! =)

Your wreath and all those little treasures are delightful!

Sounds delightful!
Have a hippy midsummer. We are going to tie a knot in a twig in the moonlight and make wishes, and dance through the long grass in bare feet in the rain, and wear daisies in our hair - what will the neighbours think?
Love the wreath!

What a fun thing you do with your daughters Kim! I loved the celebrations of Midsummer's Day in Sweden when we lived there but this is just so magical. I think I will take a tip from you and write down a wish to place out in the garden tonight. Perhaps the fairies will come here too.

see you there! said...

You are going to have the happiest fairy population around. What lovely things they have waiting for them.

Oh what a lovely idea - my two were a bit young for that this year but I shall have to store it away in what's left of my brain for next time!

What fun. When I was small we used to hunt in the garden for pennies scattered by the fairies on midsummer's day ... nothing as lovely as this, but I can still remember the excitement nearly 50 years later.
