SEE YOU AT www.underthewoodsfaeries.com/faeries

This is the site of my new faery blog and goblin market where you can purchase my calendars and cards and other things.  Soon this site will automatically redirect, until then you’ll have to just navigate there on your own faery power….I just hate to be redirected like this so I must apologize for any inconvenience this causes you…

Contemplating the move....

Faery Blessings, and see you at the new meeting place.

A faery hiding with his dragon. Can you see him?

It’s so hot today and humid that the only thing to do is to gather all the beach gear and go to the ocean’s edge where I can cool my toes and look for faeries playing in the lingering lace of the waves.  Poor Sam, no dogs allowed, she’ll have to hide away from the sun in her freshly dug mud hole behind the Hydrangea.  She’s too hot to chase the bunnies I can see sitting at the garden’s edge.  She just watches them with a wistful eye.  I wonder why the bunnies are out and about at noon…

Faeries in the afternoon

Behind the bunnies, in the grass, I can see the faeries watching...

50 Faeries, this is Faery 21...only two more to choose

A hard working elf solved the problems and save the day!  My past posts are on the new site, AND the shipping charges in my new store are correct… It’s so pretty, I can’t wait for you to see it.  It should be at http://www.underthewoodsfaeries.com in a few days.  Hopefully it will automatically take you there from here…I have a very magical elf working on it…if it works we’ll have Bob to be grateful for.  (warning– never ever thank someone from Faeryland…it’s a bad bad thing…but you can tell them how grateful you are for their gifts.)

I’m working on a date book and have selected 50 out of the 52 Faeries…so this week I start to work on it.  I think it will be lovely, I’ll keep you posted.

Blessings.

I guess I will have to start from scratch. Oh bother.  Hopefully when you come to the old blog, it will direct you to the new one without a glitch.  Ah well and Oh dear. More later.

Faery Blessings

Tom, Sam, and I went to the middle of New York to visit another faery festival.  It was very different from our little festival, more adults in costume, more land, more food, and several tents with beautiful faery art and clothing for sale.   The landscape was just perfect, with a beautiful babbling brook along the path to all the little grassy areas where music and theater was taking place.  There were nests with baby birds along the way, and faery houses; and an occasional nasty trolls hiding on the path.  Two very mean trolls guarded a bridge to the wishing tree and they would NOT let you pass without paying their toll –something beautiful or shinny.  Fortunately one lovely food vendor was running around giving shinny white stones to all of the children so they could pay the troll toll.  We were at a loss for anything shinny or beautiful so we had to turn around, besides, poor Sam was freaking out, she was very frightened of the trolls.  Dogs are very wise.  What I loved the most was this magical faery house on the side of the path. It was built of sticks and had carved log and mushroom tables.  I would just love this in our yard.  I think we might look for a bigger place for next year’s festival…something with water and woods. But how will we keep the trolls away?

No one seemed to see these ancient ones as they walked the faery trail.

Faery Blessings.

These are a few of my favorite things:

http://www.nyfaeriefest.com/index.php The New York Faerie Festival

http://www.silkcloque.com/index.html Reyen’s Design Studio: Unbelievably beautiful tops of woven wool and silk. Perfect for a hot summer faery festival. If I had a million dollars I would buy you several!

http://www.moresca.com/intro.php Moresca Clothing & Costume… She’s come from Feyland and has brought her dresses with her, because it isn’t possible to make such beautiful dresses on the human plane– A must for every self-respecting adult sized elf or fae.

http://bodyartbyshara.com/ Faery Faces beautifully done.  I’d love to take portraits of these little ones on the faery mushroom, I think they would be magical.

http://wingandtalonleatherworks.com/ These leather masks were unbelievable. But I loved the little ears the best.

I just finished putting my calendars up for sale on Amazon…not an easy thing, but you can start buying today! From Amazon or later from my new site (soon to be launched) and PayPal.  The calendar is being sold on Amazon for more than on my site to cover all of Amazon’s fees.  Hopefully you will find it in their catalog…look for 2011 wall calendars, or “faery” calendars (with an “e”) and it should get you there.   Right now Tom is taking calendars to shops in Salem…wish us luck! (if you cannot wait for my website to be launched, email me at  junder@underwoodphoto.com for more information on my calendars.)

2011 Wall Calendar

Launched into the wide wide web world

May she land in green clover.

Faery blessings to us all.

Little Faery by the Water

Little Rose Faery:  faery of shyness, beauty, pride, and love.

We have over 80 new faeries who had their portraits taken last Saturday, and more scheduled for portraits next week…and I love our new water set… it’s just magical.   I think it is going to make some stunning photographs, here’s the first fine art portrait of the year…and a strong contender for next year’s faery calendar.  She is so guarded. What secrets does this little one hold close to her heart…she is not going to let you peek, that’s for sure!  You are going to have to win her trust or never see what powers she can release into the world. I cannot wait to see what the other portraits will reveal.

We just finished editing the festival images, we have about 1,000 great portraits on-line from this one event (www.underwoodphoto.com) …can you believe it!  We can, we’ve got the red eyes to prove it!

Abundance of faery blessings today.

All the faeries danced and played, had tea and ran about the yard giggling and twirling.  It was storybook perfect.  Tom and I are exhausted,  I am certain Kelsey is as well.  It’s like a faery wedding, all the planning and all the work for just a twinkle of time and then it’s all gone.  So like Brigadoon, so mystical magical.  Here are a few of the wood faeries.  Tom is editing the water faeries.  I’ll share those later.  Thank you all for coming, and thank you workers and volunteers for another successful event.

Hello little faery

I can’t wait to have my new blog site up so I can connect you to all the faery things I have found and love.  Here’s an artist who’s illustrations I just adore.  Fortunately she sells her work on line in several places, but if you start at her blog: thefairyfactory.wordpress.com you will find her work.  There are other fairy factory stores, so make sure you go to the right place.

Sandra’s illustrations are charming, beautifully drawn, simple, not overworked like some illustrations, very fresh and very unique.   I’m particularly fond of her tooth fairy – I won’t give you a peek here you will have to travel to her site http://thefairyfactory.wordpress.com/ and look for yourself.  She will charm all the grumpiness out of you — if you have any in you.

Faery Blessings

Back to weeding the garden for the festival!
