Do You Believe?

Do you believe in fairies? How about Christmas Fairies?

I have a collection I started a few years ago, of Mark Roberts Christmas fairies. They all look different, and I think when my back is turned they just might come to life! To see more of these whimsical fairies click here. You can click on the picture to enlarge for detail.
Welcome Home,
Penny
p.s. my internet is working, yeah! I will be around to visit all of you soon.

I knew I liked you! I collect MR's fairies too. Actually, I've started giving my daughter one every year...usually the one that benefits breast cancer. I actually found one in a consignment store this weekend...the bookworm fairy for $7.95. It didn't have the box or registration card or ornament hanger string, but it's cute nonetheless. Have you had him sign yours? He's very nice! I see he was up at Blowing Rock this year.

Hi Penny
The fairy is so wonderful! I love his twinkly eyes. Looks like he is ready to get into some mischief!
I'm not familiar with that artist's work. I'll have to look him up and find out more.
Hope you have a good week. I am away all week at Hilton Head with some of my quilting friends.
Hugs, Rhondi

Glad you're up and running again Penny - I was happy to read your comment. Your new blog banner pic is so vibrant - love it.

Bet it's cool in 'them there mountains' these frosty mornings - so pretty though. This time last year I was in Asheville for a few days........and visiting the ScreenDoor - love that shop!!

Raleigh's beginning to get bedecked - today should be a bit warmer so I'll be outside finishing up the lights etc.

Love MR creations - bit pricey though!

When we had the store we carried MR fairies. I'm so sad that I didn't get all of the 12 days of Christmas fairies when I had the chance. I have three that I treasure.
Your fairy is adorable.
