This weekend at the Guelph Fairy Festival a range of fairy-tale attire was to be seen,
on water sprites and wood nymphs,
on fairy godmothers and dragon tamers,
even knights of old and their attendants.
It was a perfect day for gathering in a green glade
and we managed to blend in and slip through the gates for a day of fun and inspiration.Back on the home front I am preparing for the upcoming art show, putting new art into frames and making lists and labels. The latest edition of Faerie Magazine has arrived, another beautiful production from editor Kim Cross.
This issue includes a new article by Avril about the seeking and finding of fairy paths, in particular the legendary One Thousand Islands of the St. Lawrence River (with photos by Ian Coristine).
"Travelling through the region in 1848, years before development arrived, England's Rev. James Dixon described the islands as "...the most perfect fairy scene in the world." Situated in Ontario on a stretch of the St. Lawrence River, this piece of fairy land is only a few hours drive away and we are planning a trip there later this summer.
Further into Faerie Magazine is my latest "Posy's Fairy Wardrobe" spread, more fashions for summer days.
For now I am surrounded by frames and pictures, with my spiffy new framer's point-driver to facilitate the process. In 10 days it will all be hung and ready. "Children and fairies welcome, wings may be worn."
