Button Fairies

June 14, 2010

"Hand in hand, with Fairy grace,
Will we sing and bless this place." (shakespeare)

This is a button fairy of my mom - Christine! I made this for one of my sisters. Now the other two want one. Some of the old buttons belonged to my grandmother, Catherine. All button fairies need names - doncha think??

What childhood would be complete without the enchanting and ephemeral world of fairyland - the snow-queen, Glinda, the Fairy Godmother, and those pixies, elves, dwarfs, magicians, wizards, monsters, (one could go on and on. . . So here are a few button fairies - my tribute to an ageless artform!
