Fairy Friday

The Narcissus Fairy....

Another flower that is brave enough to pop out in early Spring. I hope everyone is doing well and that any of you that have been buried in snow are seeing bits of Spring green.

The Narcissus Fairy by Cicely Mary Barker

I live in the San Francisco bay area and guess what? Snow. Well, snow is predicted for Saturday. Not a heavy snow, mind you but, flurries. Still, snow in SF?! It hasn't happend since 1976! If it does indeed happen and the snow does stick I'll be sure to take pictures and post. Have a lovely weekend everyone!

P.S. Do you like my new background? I've been wanting to use it for a long time and I think it fits Spring perfectly. It's by Plumrose Lane. Please visit. Sharon has beautiful backgrounds for free and for sale at her Etsy shop.


  1. I like the background, very spring and wonder and life. Hope that you get whatever weather you desire, we have snow here if it makes you feel any better :)

  2. I adore your background and it befitting Spring! Hopefully I'll be feeling better and can make a quick stop at Home Depot for some flowers.

    Deanna :D

    a joyous feel to it,and I love Cicely Mary Barker's illustrations,they are so sensitively painted.

    Best Wishes.

  4. I love all the fae's of Mary Cicely Barker and your narcissus darling is perfect. The new background is GORGEOUS! It's a dazzling riot of beautiful colors. Good choice, Joanne :)

  5. Great background! :) I love Barker's flower faeries so much. I'm looking forward to ANYTHING green popping up in our yard. We see more and more green every day - but there is still so much snow. :) Theresa
