the old swedes have always had "tomte" in the house. mom would put out a little bowl of milk for them, and some little squares of bread, during the holidays. it was all done in fun, but her grandmother said that it was only for the best to put it out. then the "tomte" were happy, and the house ran smoothly. even if wed idn't see an appreciable difference in the amount left, it was the thought that counted. the tomte would take care of us and the house. it's not too late, this year-12 days of christmas--and never too soon to feed the tomte!

Named mine Sam. My daughter even named her first child ( girl) Samantha. He used to do crazy things until I had a talk with him. Ha Really who knows, but I know when he is here or if he goes to my daughters house for awhile. She will call and say ... You missing Sam because he is at my house. lol

Yes, I do have house fairies. Grandma always told us that if we welcome the fairies, we would not be a good place for pixies to cause trouble. So I have a fairy door, fairy curtain hangers, fairy clock and a silly little fairy that was my one attempt to make a soft sculpture fairy. Grandma always had a little piece of wood, with a little knob attached, mounted on the wall, in a lower corner, so the fairies could come and go as the wish. Imagine my surprise when I found my little door online...!

I just KNEW that the pharmacist did not give me my refill on a prescription. She asked me to look for it just one more time and, guess what???, I found it and had to go back and apologize. She made me feel better. Said "it happens a lot with people, so don't feel bad. You're probably the first one who'se apologized tho' " Dodee

My son says I watch too many of the Disney Fairie movies -I know Tinker Bell borrows my tools while I'm using them, they come up missing as soon as I set them down

and yes, i have a fairy door, as well. it leads nowhere, but the fairies always seem to be able to get something inbetween the door and the wall for the granddaughter, when she comes over--or clues to a "hunt" that leads to a message or "treasure" from the fairies.

Busy Fingers, I'm a senior but I think I have a house fairy as well. I will look for something 100 times, on time 101 I will find it where I had looked the other 100 times.

Mine is named Jim and he often takes milk or other things that need refrigeration and puts them ON TOP of the fridge. Then he says he did not do it. He is 5'11" and I am 5'3". Who's kidding whom???
