Long, long ago there was this wonderful place on the Oregon Coast known as Pixie Kitchen. It was a magical place with funny, very special full length mirrors, good food (loved their buffet) and pixies! We went there often and those memories of my childhood are truly sweet...
Flash forward many years...
We are still sorting through my mother's things--well mostly my sibling it. At some point I had sorted boxes too and decided I just couldn't keep everything. I took photos of a few special items and let them go; other things -- like the Friendly Village dinnerware and teacup collection I took home. Months passed after saying 'no' to some items and I began to regret with each month letting the ceramic pixies and elves go. Surely they were in a Goodwill store by now; surely they had to be. I asked my sibling and was told there might be a chance...I did not hold out much hope.
And then the week before our snow blessing happened and on a very cold day, a box arrived via special delivery (my sibling and dad). I was VERY excited:)
We treat our wee ones well here as you can see...
the elves outside playing in their 'native' habitat.
They didn't understand why I brought them in so fast.
But really, would I be a responsible Elf Mom if I left them outside in the cold,
without mittens and ear muffs?
Also inside the box was this little guy.
I love the little ladybug and red shoes--
so stylish and so, so cute!
It also makes me think forward to spring and summer when our ladybugs will be visiting us again!
One thing I am not sure of is whether this is a little girl pixie or a little boy?
What do you think?
The pixies also got to have some fun outside in the snow.
I don't think they enjoyed it as much as their friends the elves.
So what have you been up to?
