National Fairy Day

June 24th is National Fairy Day! Did you know that? Sheridan and I have been friends of fairies for many years. We have read the Fairy Houses series many times. (Fairy Houses, Fairy Boat and Fairy Flight)
Sheridan and I go on nature walks to collect items to build our own fairy house. We always follow the rules of the forest to keep the building to code. Never pick living plants or flowers, don't use unnatural things i.e.- jewelry, bottle caps, etc. and only use things found on the ground.

After we build our fairy house, we celebrate with a fairy tea party out in the garden. The next day, there always seems to be some golden mushrooms that spring up near the fairy house. That is how we know that the fairies have been to the house and leave us a little thank you.

I love this self contained fairy garden I found on etsy.

This is a miniature fairy table set. Too cute! I hope you will do something to celebrate fairy day! Please come back to let me know what you have done. A link to pictures is always fun, too.
Happy Fairy Day!
There are a few more days to enter my 300th post giveaway.
