One of the fanatic moms I am fortunate to know put together a fairy house workshop. Right next to our secret garden, a most perfect place to have it.
We had already had a big weekend, the show was about 40 minutes from our house. I hate city driving. It was too hot that day. I had to find parking. My husband was working, so I had to go by myself. There would be too many people. I wouldn't get anything done around the house/farm. It would be a cranky no nap day. Let me tell you, this country girl can make a hundred excuses to stay away from crowds, stoplights, crosswalks and congestion. But, I decided to bring them anyway. One on my back.
But not too crowded.
And we found ours straight away. There was a steady parade of onlookers. Children crouched on their knees, looking at our detail. Adults taking pictures. We just watched for a while as others looked at our work, waiting our turn. We really only had a brief shot because others were waiting.
