Fairy goodness ~

This is the sweetest book that I found at an estate sale several years ago.
I love these precious fairies and isn't the little shadow pretty? The back opens up to reveal the fold-out book . . .

Please be careful where you tread,
The fairies are about;
Last night when I had gone to bed,
I heard them creeping out.
And wouldn't it be a dreadful thing
To do a fairy harm?
To crush a little delicate wing
Or bruise a tiny arm?
They're all about the place, I know,
So do be careful where you go.

What a sweet little book. Love the bookmarks in the previous post, she did a great job!

It is a sweet book. Many years ago (almost 10!) my husband and I started an online business selling metal garden stakes, that were in the shape of the fairies in this book! Someday I hope to show some of the pictures of these on my blog!

I just love all that Faerie goodness!

Thanks for visiting my blog! While you did not win the first of my many Rak’s, I still want to send you something! No pressure. Just need your snail mail addy and birthdate!

A charming little book indeed! My daughter gave me a pop up book all about fairies for Christmas. Funny how I enjoy looking at that book so often even though, at first, I found it odd.

I've been a big fan of Cicely's work for ages...she did the most beautiful illustrations. That's a wonderful book - lucky girl! : )

I love Cicely's Fairies - she was a fabulous artist. I think my favorite has always been the Lavender Fairy - but then I look through the four little books I have, and see more I can easily fall for, all are so delicate and charming. Your fold out book is beautiful - I've never seen that one.
