Five new fairy tree ornaments for last minute shopping!

I took five new fairy dresses up to Brambles in Belfast yesterday, because they’ve been selling like crazy. To those of you who read the last post and specifically went up there last week to buy them–thank you!

Even if some are made with the same materials, each one is uniquely different. All are handmade with natural forest and plant materials and each comes with the a Celtic back story.

Each measures about 4-5 inches with a custom whimsical hanger. Here are the new ones:

The Yule Fairy

This fairy, whose reindeer moss skirt and red-berried lichen applique, are a tribute to the season of Yule. The colors of red, white and green, symbolize the merry Meet of the Fairy Gods and Goddesses.

The Queen’s Handmaiden

The Queen's Handmaiden comes up from the rath to sun herself on an evergreen. It's nearing the time of Solstice, when they cling to the branches of pines and sing for the Goddess of Cold Darkness.

Lady of the White Thorn

This fairy is the protector of the white thorn, a notable tree in County Clare that sat alone in a vast meadow of green. Workers refused to cut it down, for it was the site of a fairy dwelling. True story.

The Forest Fairy

In the midst of Fernald's Neck, a mysterious mossy forest surrounded by a lake in Maine, there are fairy forts all around. This is the Forest Fairy, whose lichen skirt was found on one of my walks through there.

The Queen’s Muse

This is the Queen's own poet, a.k.a. The Reindeer Muse. Every day, she alights to a sunny spot to collect the sun and her thoughts for a new verse she'll take back to the Queen and court for the evening.

These will be the last ones I make for December. If you really want one and I have the materials for it, contact me and order a custom dress on Etsy.
 
Merry Christmas! Happy Hannukah! Happy Solstice! Happy Festivus!
