A handful of years ago, Jess exposed me to Sarah Ban Breathnach's Mrs. Sharp's Traditions: Reviving Victorian Family Celebrations Of Comfort & Joy . A sweet book! During the month of June she tells how you can throw a little party for the faeries in your gardens on the first day of summer (if I remember correctly) So Jess in I, each in our respecitve 'gardens' left a little tea party and in return the faeries left little gifts for the wee ones in our homes. I haven't been that great at keeping it a tradition, but with my baby B's birthday being on June 21st, the first day of summer, I plan on hosting a faerie birthday party for her. Won't that be cute?! We'll leave a mini cup cake or 2 out for the faeries who I am sure will leave magical party favors in return.
I have to say, Jess showed me Lisa Ketell's faeries and I thought it would be so cool to do a faerie in a jar swap...without realizing there have already been some going on around the web! LOL! I'm behind on what's cool!
Here are 3 other jars (I'm still working on the big one) You can click on the pics to see them larger.
