Fun with the faeries!

Last Saturday, Mom, Willow and I attended Faery Fest in Guelph, Ontario.  The weather was perfect, sunny and dry and we enjoyed our time with the fae folk before heading off to pick up my Folkmanis Brown Bat puppet at The Book Shelf Cafe on Quebec Street and then enjoying the University of Guelph's Arboretum. 

Tammi was showing her latest creations, including more examples of her adorable mushrooms, the perfect faery home decore accessory.  Her Lilac Grove always looks so welcoming and lush... 
I brought our collaboration "Spring Reunion" to add to her table and she centered it for all to see. 

The best part of any faery gathering is the people and that day was no exception.  Of course a little skull pendant found me, created by Elanne & Ivy, but Willow led us to our best encounter of the day. 

By a wishing pond she sought refuge from the sun and we met Tracy Kelly and her Creative Heart.  I had noticed Tracy earlier in the morning because she was costumed in the most beautiful dress, complimented by sparkling wings and the prettiest tiara.  Turns out she'd been to England and her attire came from there!  We had a really nice visit with her and very much appreciated her very magical story about taking time off and journeying, finding hearts wherever she went.  She's working on a book about it, featuring her photography.  (I was drawn to and took home a stunning asymetrical heart carved from sea sediment jasper with chalcopyrite, mostly orange with the most amazing colors rippling through it.) 

And we were happy to see The Twilight Zoo was represented, by a trio of white mushrooms!!
