Hello everyone! It's Lou Anne again, the misplaced mermaid.
I'm so excited to share our challenge for this week.
It's full of magic, whimsy, and wishes come true!
This week, it's all about Fairies.
Brownies are their more petite cousins. These good-natured little beings are only four and a half inches tall. They usually wear brown clothing and are very intelligent. Brownies are nocturnal but they haven't any wings.
Trooping fairies are about the same size as pixies but they are also wingless. They live near the forest and travel together in long processions.
Elves, fauns, gnomes, hobgoblins, and leprechauns are also considered fairy folk. You can learn about the more common fairies at the link below.
In the early 1900's, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
wrote about two young girls who had captured proof of fairies on film. The Cottingley Fairies were extremely popular in their time. The story was retold in a film entitled, "Fairy Tale: A True Story" in 1997.
I have one more little secret. There is a type of fairy that I consider extra-special. Can you guess which ones I'm referring to? Of course, it's Mermaids. Well, to be politically correct, I suppose I should call them "Merpeople."
All of your friends here at Inspiration Avenue hope you'll join in on the fun this week.
Frolic with the fairie folk and share your work below using Mr. Linky.
We can't wait to see what you create!
