    Some fairies camped under chairs, too. I'm pretty sure those flowers weren't just dumped - they were arranged in some meaningful way...
    All the fairies went back home yesterday now the gremlins and gnomes are back at it fighting over the screwdrivers and scissors.

    At least you have fairies, I have gremlins that come out and play with my machines while I sleep. The really like the treadles I have open and have been sewing on and leave them that way until the next sewing session. Sometimes the play with the tension or throw thread all over the floor. I was told to leave a piece of chocolate on the machine bed for them and they will leave the machine be. I will have to try this. LOL

    Oh, what fun. I would have loved that when I was little. Heck, I'd love it now if I had some little girl relatives to do it with. So glad you got the big bag of flowers. Aren't they all, fairies included, lucky to have you.

    Oh what fun and what a wonderful gramma you are! Wish my grandchildren were close. Thanks for sharing. It was fun to see all of their happiness.

    I need some of those fairies to visit here, what a way to brighten a day!!!
    My lil granddaughter loves to craft with me, when she's a lil bit older I can't wait for all the fun I know we will have sewing with my machines. Right now she likes to sit on my lap and "help" with my sewing.
