Pure fairy goodness!

OK, by now you must know that I love fairies. I don't know what it is about them, maybe that they love nature or maybe it's their angelic quality, I'm not really sure, but I think they are magnificent.

This past weekend I found the epitomy of fairy books. I ran into Barnes & Noble while I was visiting Dawn to see if any new magazines were out that I just had to have. Not many new magazines were on the stands so I had to browse through the bargain books on my way out ~ Dawn is circling the parking lot all of this time so I'm trying my best to hurry.

Then I see this. An amazing book chock full of the most beautiful OLD fairy art EVER!!! Some that I've seen before, some I've never seen. But all are gorgeous. The price?? 14.99. That's it! I bought it and ran out the door . . . maybe I can scan some of these as they are all so very old. Here is just a tiny sampling:
















Monday was a really busy day, mostly packing and mailing off artwork (and moaning and hobbling) I must have hit that ground pretty hard, I'm aching all over the place!!! Thanks for your concern, I'm really fine. I wanted to tell you my goofy story because it really was funny and I thought it would give you a Monday morning smile ~

Take care and hope your Tuesday is great!

xxoo, Dawn

Oh who is the artist? What a deal, I love the bargain books at Barnes & Noble, you can find some awesome stuff there!! Sorry you are achy. You probably did take a pretty hard fall. Take some advil, put some ice on it, and prop your feet up. I hope you feel better!!
Love ya'll!!!!

I gave you an award over at my place. You may pass it on if you like. You are "Just plain fun to read"!

Love the book & I bought the same one at B&N on Saturday also! I couldn't resist the gorgeous artwork! Glad you didn't get banged up too much when you took the tumble! That must have been a bit scary at the time!!! Good save on the cobbler - LOL. Can't wait to see how you use the book art...

Hugs, Patte

I love that book as well and have to always stop myself from adding yet another fairy book to already sagging shelves. Thanks for sharing some of the pages here!

I wonder if the fairies saw you taking a dive in the grass the other day?! LOL - just glad all turned out well...

What a lovely book! Don't you love finding things like that in the bargain books? I've found so many treasures just by digging around in there every time I go to B&N....drives my family crazy! I'm new to blogging and just found you today. The music on your site is enchanting...who is it? Hope you are feeling better each day.

Beautiful fairy illustrations! Thanks for sharing them.

I really enjoy reading your blog - it truly brightens my day.

I always look at those little 'finds' as God's little blessings on us--knowing what we like and Him putting it in our path to just treat us!! How fun for you!
Hope you're feeling better soon--maybe soak in the tub will help...

Such beautiful illustrations. You could get lost in just one page for a very long time. I think it's going to provide you with many, many more sparks of imagination and creativity.

Margaret said...

What beautiful fairy pictures! Thank you for posting them--it looks like a great book.

That book is gorgeous. I think Braxton & Lulu see fairies in the garden - I'll bet little Ellie sees them too!

Falls are funny - AFTER you find you aren't too badly hurt and NO ONE was watching! Sorry for your BooBoo's - get better ...QUICK!

I simply adore the fourth fairy from the top. Do you know and love the Rainbow Fairy books by Andrew Lang? I bet you do. If not, you must read them. Happy day to you!

Ooooh, I'm making more fairy dresses this week (both sold!!!) and I had sketched one that looked exactly like the gathered in tiers one second from the top!
