Faerie Gardens, Bedtime Stories and a Mouse

Pixie Aster

Home spun Bedtime Stories are a tradition in our family.

Often the fairytales that follow my sculptures
will serve as great night-time tales.
 However, this time the faerie was created in response to a simple
verse about a Pixie who grows Mice instead of Flowers in her garden.

We are in the midst of garden digging here at the farm,
and it totally intrigues my youngest children to imagine that just perhaps
mice can be "grown" by forest Pixies.
 So, my daughter Angi and I decided to have a bit of  fun
and together bring this fairy tale to life
during planting season.
Angi sculpted these two endearing characters and I worked out the detailing!
Clicking on the picture above will take you to her auction!
I hope you take a moment to meet Pixie Aster and her garden grown mouse,
 and read the simple little limerick spun by my daughter
to her own children.  
This was so agreeable to our artistic constitutions,
that we hope to offer a joint project
now and again on ebay.
Now, I am off to visit some of your studios
to see what has been sprouting there!
Thank you for stopping by...much love, Rose
