Visitor

























Had this guy out front this morning.

We have lots of wild rabbits in our yard which means we also have lots of predators.
(remember the rattlesnake that bit me 2 yrs ago) I do ! Lol

We have coyotes,snakes,bobcats etc... I swear I even saw a chupacabra ( mythical ? dog like vampire) out my door one night.

This visitor got himself a bunny for breakfast. I have never heard anything like it. Primal and wild. Kind of scary.

Life in the desert is brutal but beautiful.

I met a talented artist on Etsy who creates these incredibly intricate birdhouses. He wanted to do a fairy home at the base of a birdhouse and used my feather fairy portal as the entrance.

What a fun collaboration and I think it turned out beautifully. Vernon is as nice as he is talented so if you want to see more of his wonderful creations here is a link to his Etsy shop.

I can just imagine the birds and the fairies have a great time in this one of a kind house.

We look forward to next year!








My daughter Quinn won 1st place for cosplay in her category "Anime". She worked for months on her costume and I am happy to see it pay off for her. What a fun experience!

Fairy Garden to go....

 I needed a costume or something fun to wear for the LasCruces Comicon in September that I am vending at so I made a wearable fairy garden.

I love those little felt top hats I have been seeing all over Pinterest and Etsy so I ordered some hats and bought a new "super hot" (ouch) glue gun and got to work. I made tiny mushrooms and flowers to go with my little door and they all turned out so darn cute. It looks heavy but it is not and stays put with two hair clips glued on the bottom. I may start selling the little clay pieces as craft supplies after I get these shows finished and I have some time for experimenting. The finished hat is 4.5" wide and about 3.5" tall so it is a miniature wonderland.

It was a lot of fun to put together and now I can take my Fairy Garden with me.
