Ever since I was a little girl and having read ALL of Enid Blyton’s books, I have had a fascination with fairies. We have a fairy garden at home – a little place where children love to hide and look for signs of fairy life! They hang in all the trees and there is even a little fairy door in the trunk of an old palm tree! My kitchen, too, is home to little people! I have them peeping around all nooks and crannies! I even have an old bird caged, antique looking, with fairies dancing inside it!
My "Garlic Goblin"
Niunia gave me this goblin, lounging on a beatiful mushroom! It is supposed to hang up, but the ceiling in my kitchen is too high - he would be lost! So I keep him on my counter and he takes care of the fresh tasty garlic, grown in our friends garden!What is a kitchen without witches and wizards? I just love this wizard, given to me for my birthday by my little nieces. He reminds me of Dumbledore from the Harry Potter movies. He smiles down on all activity with his wizened eyes and little glasses! My witch is a happy witch! They say that when you have a witch in your kitchen, you will always have food in your cupboards! Well, there's been no shortage of food in our cupboards, that's for sure!! I bought her for myself having looked at her over and over again in the gift shop. She has raspberries and apples tied to her waste, and little bits of ribbon and cotton to sell! I love her rustic broomstick and her rosy, red cheeks! I think they make a handsome couple - don't you?
