how to call the fairies

Do you know how to ask the Fairies to come out and play?
Repeat after me:
"Come out from your Fairy bower,
Come upon this golden hour,
Come to me, I beg you, please:
Fairies dancing on the breeze"

Fairy Construction zone!

Lots of activity around the walnut tree in front of  my house these days...
the Fairies seem to be constructing a new dwelling! 
Stay tuned for more photos as it progresses.

Winter boots!

These boots were made specially for Roiben, a Fairy Prince from the rugged Pacific Northwest Kingdom of Cascadia. Prince Roiben is also Cascadia's official gamekeeper, protecting Her Majesty's raccoons, badgers, squirrels, mountain goats, antelope and other fauna from the camouflage-wearing humans 
who roam their kingdom with weapons. 
Roiben's boots are just 1.5" tall and are made from softly faded autumn ginkgo leaves, with decorative buttons of miniature clematis seeds. The soles bear the logo "Roots", an exclusive Fairy shoe brand. They are displayed on a nest of soft green, native lichen and accented with a dried poppy pod on a terra-cotta saucer and sealed under a blown-glassdome with a eucalyptus button finial.
