A spell for summoning the fairies

Sit where the cat sits.Cross your toes.Close your eyes.And smell a rose.Then say under your breath:"I believe in fairies,sure as death."Gadflykins! Gladtrypins!Gutterpuss and Cass!Come to me fairily..Each lad and lass!

~~From "Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book"~~

Did you notice the nights are getting colder...not long now and the first frost will chase the fairies away to warmer places...

I MUST find this pressed fairy book dearest...it sounds like an enchanting read for one of our stormy nights! LAST NIGHT, IT POURED, IT THUNDERED, and lightning lit the skies! I hope you are enjoying the change into Autumn....Bisous, Nita

Oh yes.. This book is a must find! Love the music. Days are still very hot here, nights a little cooler... Waiting for fall to come my way.

Enjoy your week dear Dutchess.

Oh, Dutchess, you are always so pushing time! It is still summer today and I just do not want to hear about frost until it is there ... I suppose I am in denial. And I said to my husband tonight: only 2,5 months at it is Christmas. But I just cannot bear the idea either .... I want the fairies to sit on the big leaves in my garden, I want to have them parties between the last roses, etc.
I love autumn and crisp winter days, but - sigh - at the moment I want to hold on to summer.
Have a wonderful day!
