Two Fairies to Welcome Spring...

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
It's certainly beginning to feel like spring is just around the corner now, so with no more prompting required from the lovely sun in the sky, I set about making some colourful new season fairy folk...
I always take my time selecting just the right vintage textiles and trims, because if I get this wrong at the start, the fairy won't turn out well. I decided upon a beautiful kingfisher blue and another of a soft salmon pink. 
First the pink...
I've called her Bunny. 
She's dressed in a very full and fabulous c1950's stiffened flocked chiffon skirt. 
I added lots of springlike accessories, including a handmade bunny ear headpiece! Also, an Easter basket brooch at her waist and faux glittered bird's eggs and flowers.
She wears a pompom tail on her bottom!
She will arrive in her hand decorated box, which I have papered in antique sheet music and spring themed book pages...with a sprinkling of glitter. 
She will also be accompanied by a special bird clip friend, which can be fastened to her arm, or used elsewhere in your Easter decorating. 
Bunny is now reserved - thank you! 
Then there's Solace...
Dressed in the most beautiful kingfisher blue ensemble. 
Her skirt was stitched from a c1950's chiffon headscarf, with an overlay of hand crochet lace with pansy motifs. 
Solace also has Easter-themed accessories, including faux glittered bird's eggs and a diamante crucifix.
A pretty bird clip will accompany on her journey too. 
She will arrive carefully packed inside her hand decorated box, papered with original book pages and a sprinkling of glitter. 

Both girls have just been added to my on-line shop. I hope you will enjoy taking a look when you have a moment. 
Have a perfect week!
