“Do you believe in fairies?"...

..."Say quick that you believe. If you believe, clap your hands!” ~ J.M. Barrie

I was thinking a great deal about faerie magic today as I painted this garden sign (and tried to justify keeping it here, planted on the end of a post at the entrance to my soon-to-be faerie garden!) It's lettered around the edge with an old English charm, and listed on eBay for just a few days....

I believe in faeries....I believe there's magic everywhere if we only take the time to look for it; from miracles of nature like snowflakes and butterflies, to the wonder in a small child's eyes when some new discovery is made, to that falling over a cliff feeling when you first meet your absolute-forever-one-and-only....

Magic exists, and people who say it doesn't have just lost sight of it, don't you think?

I do think so too, magic is what you forget to notice while one is busy doing other things.

Thanks for the lovely remark on my small painting!
