When we were little my sisters would construct elaborate fairy
kingdoms in the shade of the big oak tree in the front yard.
Every rock, knot hole and root became something integral
to the happiness of the little fairy society
until it rained and they had to start all over again.
Thankfully we didn't live in Oregon,
although those fairies probably had better moss.
Miss Thing was really happy when Grama and Grampa gave
her a "build your own" fairy world for her birthday.
She made it 5 whole minutes before cracking the box open and digging in.
She started out by painting her fairie's house and toadstools.
While they were drying she got her "dirt" all ready
and then on to her favorite part
of course this involved sparkly things,
of course when you are done with that there is always more glitter to be sprinkled.
Fairies always need more glitter.
Finally the fairy got to come home and enjoy all of Miss Thing's hard work.
I expect she'll be drafting a lease and trying to collect rent shortly.
