The Petal Fairy

MD82

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.
