If you saw my earlier posts this week, you know that my nieces and nephew visited with us for a few days. We had the most wonderful time. This is a story of my youngest niece, Noelle, and the fairy dance.
Noelle, is eight. She is a magical little sprite that lives in her own little happy world. Much like her Auntie indeed. ;) I have her convinced there are fairies living in the ivy plant on the back porch. (my sister say's she'll forward the therapy bill to me later. hee,hee,hee)
They are "The Fairies of Bunnyville Ivy." They are the caretakers of bunnies and other critters of the woods. They don't show themselves to humans, but Noelle is special. They sent her an invitation to a dance. Noelle told my sister she needed to go to the store at once as she must have a new dress and a tiara for the dance. She was so excited!
Please enjoy this music as you read the rest of this post. This is the music I played at the dance. It is from one of my most favorite artists, Loreena McKennitt.
Nightengale, one of the fairies from Bunnyville Ivy, knew that she was not suppose to show herself to Noelle. You see that is against the fairy rules as humans can be quite cruel and mean to each other and to critters. Only those with kindness and love of all things can be in the fairy land. However, Nightengale knew that Noelle was kind and gentle so she had this sculpture made of her and asked me to give it to Noelle before the dance.
As the night drew near and the fairy light came on in Bunnyville Ivy, Noelle prepared for the dance. She put on her new dress and her tiara. I gave her my beloved, magical, bunny jewelry, handmade by my dear friend, Joanne May, to wear. Noelle's sister, Laura, took some lovely photos.
"Auntie?" said Noelle. "Aren't you going to dance with me? I don't want to be alone."
So like the adoring Auntie I am, I put on a dress (ick, gag, puke, ya know I don't do dresses) to dance with Noelle and the fairies.
Thank goodness Jonathan brought his Harry Potter wand as he had to keep lighting the darn fairy light!
It was a most wonderful time. The next morning there was a necklace filled with purple fairy dust in the ivy plant. There was also a note from the fairies to Noelle. They thanked her for the dance, told her she was so very beautiful and gave her the purple fairy dust as she was now one of them.
They reminded her that she must always have kindness and love for everyone and everything. The world is a beautiful place that we are blessed to live in.
It is good to be an Auntie and even better to be an eccentric, crazy, Auntie who lives in a magical, happy little world with bunnies. ;)
Have a magical and fun weekend. Purple Fairy Dust to you.
xx, Michelle, the Bunnies and the Fairies of Bunnyville Ivy.
