Waiting for me when I got home from a long, dreary Monday at work was a package from Australia. I had won Robyn of "Tales From Inglewood's" Faerie Magick giftaway a couple of weeks ago and never expected the package to arrive so soon. It certainly instilled a lot of faerie magick into my day.
In case you can't read the (sideways) note on the package, Ms. Robyn wrote: "When I was little, my nan would buy me Honey Jumbles and I would sit under the ancient willow tree, eating them while I chatted to the faeries." I immediately had to open the bag and taste this treat that entices faeries. They are delicious - sort of like a soft ginger cookie with either pink or white frosting. I have already eaten several.
Since it is a beautiful warm day, I will take them out to my patio and eat them under my own magic tree, a huge American elm.
The package also included the faerie stones, the greeting card and the faerie card you see here, plus a little bottle of faerie candies and a cardboard pouch with a teeny, tiny pink ring just the right size for a faerie. I am going to leave it out on my computer and see if anyone spirits it away to her faerie den.
Everything was wrapped up in purple tissue paper with a hot pink ribbon. It was the most fun thing I've gotten in the mail in a long time. (Since I got my package from Carmen, tee hee.) Thank you, Robyn, for the magick.
There are only eight more posts until my 200th post, when I will be having a fall giftaway. Please add your name to the post on that day to enter. Even if you live Down Under, you can still enter and enjoy the fall gifts six months from now.
