How to catch a Fairy...

Our spring gardens include plans to create a fairy garden in the back yard....

Of course to have a fairy garden you need fairies...

This got me thinking...How does one go about catching fairies...

Fairies as we all know love all things pink, sparkly and shabby chic...(Much like many of us lady bloggers)...Oh the photo btw is not about catching fairies...It is just a sneak peak at something I am working on to go into the fairy garden as well :)


This is our fairy bait...because we all know a fairy can not resist a pretty teacup (again much like lady bloggers) and we have some lovely smelling rose buds and some ever so pretty sparkly crystals...


But it is not enough to simply attract the fairies, we need to catch them....So I placed my fairy bait inside of a cage set in my herb garden...Fairies LOVE herb gardens...


Fairies are also very fussy, so not just any cage will do.

It must be a vintage pink bird cage...


OH MY!!!

It worked...seems we have caught not one, but two fairies...


Oh what a sweet little face is peering out at me...


This one is enchanted by the lovely fresh parsley I planted yesterday evening...


I know it seems cruel to capture fairies, but it is only so I can invite them to come live in our lovely garden I am creating just for them....Without such drastic measures one might never see a fairy, let alone have the chance invite her to tea...


I hope you all are having a magical Pink Saturday...Don't forget to pop over and visit Beverly @ http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com and enjoy all the other lovely pink posts...

Blessings Kelsie

p.s. I'm glad your hubby is growing in his gift giving (I read your Valentine's Day post). Giving gifts is about what the other person wants, not about what you like, dislike or wish for them to have. He did great!

Happy Pink Saturday, Kelsie.

If I was a fairy, I certainly would have gone for your bait. It is so tempting, and I love the pink cage.

Thank you for your sweet words about our kitchen. We are loving it.

I have had the spice racks for almost twenty years. I found them at a kitchen store in an outlet mall, and the store no longer exists. I did try to find more about eight years ago to hold some craft paint. I found them via Amazon, but I looked at hundreds trying. Here is the link -
