Happy Fairy Day!

I'm posting a little early, Fairy Day is Friday June 24th but, I'm afraid I won't have time in the morning to post.

To Celebrate the Fairy Day Party at Todas Somas Reinas (translated to We Are All Queens) I've decided to have a showing of  Fairy Queens by various artists.  Most of them are by Paulina Cassidy, whose site you can find on my side bar. I found out about this party a little late so I'm sorry not to have a giveaway like I usually do when I participate in blog parties. Once the "fairy dust" has cleared from our move maybe I can have a little fairy giveaway. In the mean time I hope you enjoy these magical pieces of art!

  11. Oh Joane, what a lovely post indeed. I regret that I was unaware of the Faerie Day Blog Parties until it was too late to participate. So I tried to do my part to celebrate anyway by making a post. Wish I could have gotten around to see what others posted! :o)

    Oh...and thanks for fessing up to being a 'Literary Fugitive' too...ha! I feel so much better now to know I'm not the only one. :o)
