Shakespeare’s Fairies

MD103

Shakespeare’s Fairies run through the twisted forest with only flirefly lanterns to guide them. Their gowns sparkle and flutter around them in the pale blue moonlight. They whisper and quietly giggle about the lovers’ follies on this midsummer night.

The Bliss Fairy

MD89

Delicately perched on a curling ribbon of grass, she is caught in a serene moment of peaceful meditation. She dons a dress skirted with green and blue leaves. Her arms and legs are draped with beads. If she is disturbed her dew laced wings will scatter droplets and she will flutter away. You will wonder if you even saw her at all!

The Petal Fairy

This fairy seamstress created her ensemble out of gathered bits and pieces from an English cottage garden. She stitched her frock with lilly petals that shimmer with vivid shades of deep fuchsia and mandarin orange. Complete with gauzy lavender wings and blossoms on her delicate slippers, she contemplates her next gown made entirely of blushing petals while gazing up at a fiery red poppy.

Lilly Of The Woods – The Dreaming Fairy

MD80

Fast asleep after prancing and dancing throughout the night, this beautiful fairy certainly leads a charmed life. With dangling jewels, a glittering gown, and ethereal wings, we find her quietly nestled in a blooming tree. Usually planning parties with her fairy friends and crafting fanciful gifts for them out of blossoms and magic treasures, this is one of the few moments you will ever catch her motionless.

Cottage Garden Fairy

MD63

Pretty, Pretty, Pretty! In the colors of the cottage garden.
– the blue shawl is dyed with “forget-me-nots”
– her glittering dew dripped gown is made of woven “celedon” seedlings from her cutting garden,
-her wings are the pale pink/purple only found when gazing at certain “cosmos” in bloom against the sun,
-the bodice was formed by sewing together rose petals from the climbing rose her grandmother planted that no one can remember the name of.
Oh, and lest we forget the lovely “baby blue eyes” that dot the edges of her wings as well as the edges of her garden paths. We think she would be lovely paired with her sister “The Queen Mermaid”.

July’s Amethyst Fairy

MD59

Fourth in Nora Corbett’s “Year of the Fairies” Collection, July’s Amethyst Fairy captures a radiant fairy mere moments before she is to meet with her long-awaited fairy prince. Because even enchanted glens get warm in July, her shadow-hued gown is off-the-shoulder satin, accented with precious gems the color of the midsummer sky.
Her bouquet? Rarest lavender roses. And behind her, airy wings flutter majestically, shimmering with violet amethysts – amethysts as perfect as this moment.
