Because we did nothing. Even our fairy house is a sad neglected mess. (To be fair, so is our entire backyard.) Monday, June 24th, we babysat my niece and that night, Mr. B and I saw Old Crow Medicine Show in concert, but apart from some fairy wings - worn very briefly by both daughters - nothing fairyish happened around these parts.
So let's look at a favorite book that we should have looked at on Fairy Day! (Or Friday, for Midsummer. But really, any day can be Fairy Day, right? RIGHT, LITTLE FAIRY CREATURES???? - Nope, I think they hate me now.)
Someone new to this blog, reading this for the first time, probably thinks I'm crazy... They're probably right...
|How to Find Flower Fairies, a beautiful pop-up book,|
featuring the art of Cicely Mary Barker.
I love the combination of Cicely Mary Barker's sweet flower fairies and intricate pop-up book design. Look at the old-fashioned camera pop-up at the end! (And to see the Greek-language edition of this same book, check out my bloggy friend Georgia's Fairy Day post!)
P.S. I became an aunt again today! My sister had her second baby girl this evening. Everyone is doing well, and we hope to meet the girls' new cousin soon!
