This weekend I watched Maura (almost 4) while her family went to a swim meet with her brothers and sister. She saw me outside and asked, “Granma, Why are you in the bushes?” When she came over to see what I was doing, she said she liked the Fairy Godmother. One shot of each on the iPhone and then she and I played. I’d been sorting toys in the playroom. Saw the toadstool and went and got the two figurines.
Today’s photos? Just for fun. The fungus was enormous. And I had just been reading an article telling of the two cousins Frances and Elsie photographs with the Cottlingley Fairies. (1917)
Thanks to Annette who wrote and said that “ the blog is a daily vitamin for the creative soul.”
That toadstool is incredible and seemingly out-worldly, a fitting place for an alien to hang out.
A bit otherworldly. I think you blog is a vitamin for any soul (I’m not that creative). I love it.
Well where else would an alien hide?
Lepiotes, we used to have them in the Springs (East Hampton)
Thanks dear cousin for Identifying the toadstool by proper name!
Dedicated to all the once-upon-a-times we so enjoyed as children and treasure as memories still. Thanks for this one of toadstools and faeries that color our fantasies. love, L
I much preferred the blue Fairy Godmother – she’s less weird and not scary. The toadstool is in a class all its own!
I love them! Great imagination.
Wow, that toadstool is huge! I definitely like the second pic the best. 🙂
Love the toadstool!
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
They are really magic photos 🙂
And where are the elves? 🙂
Wow, I’ve not seen a toadstool that big before.. it’s huge.. and an adorable photo op!
So clear and fun!!
I *love* this! And I fully agree with your friend who commented about this blog being a vitamin for the soul – what a perfect description for this space.
