Fairies - Can You See Them Or Are Gone Into The Mystical Mist?

Here is my Mystical Realms Fairy … I have also used her and filled in the blank with other phrases. For instance, my sister is a massage therapist and I have made her one of these with the phrase “Massage Therapists Are Magical”. I know she will love this, but it’s for Yule - Christmas, so I’m hoping she doesn’t check out my blog. I matted and embellished it for her as well as used an embellished frame. Love it. But I do love the Mystical Realms wording myself. Now, onto the post ….

Good Day To All Who Gather in Kindness and Good Intentions!

I thought this was so interesting especially since it’s from 1648.

"The fairies
Were of the old profession;
Their songs were Ave Marias,
Their dances were procession.
But now, alas! they all are dead,
Or gone beyond the seas,
Or, further, for religion fled,
Or else they take their ease."
~Bishop Corbet, whose work was published in I648, and was reprinted many years after by Bishop Percy

I, for one, do not believe they are all gone, but are invisible to our human eye. Although those who are sensitive to the otherworldly realms I’m sure see them from time to time, if only from the corner of their eyes. Perhaps we all do, but some just don’t notice and some don’t think that such beings exist.

Embellished Fairy Art Prints - Aspire and Bright Fairies

Greetings and well-wishes to all. I am offering some of my fairy prints that are matted and embellished that you can find at my Etsy shop. They are ready to be framed. I didn’t know how to explain the color “matt”, which is done with cardstock. I don’t want you to think it’s a regular matt. No two embellished mattes will be exactly alike except for the Rosebud Fairy of course. The size of these is 8-1/2” x 11”, with a 6x6 fairy print. Aspire and Bright Fairies are the ones I have listed so far but I have more to come in the upcoming days.

This was fun to do and I liked the way they came out. Love color, as you can tell from my fairy prints, and this just adds more pizzazz to them. I just might get even more “busy” with the embellishments since I love the funky, patchwork look to my art. © 2010 ArtSings1946. All Rights are Retained by the Artist, ArtSings1946.

I hope you enjoy looking and please pass on those good intentions to all.

Fairy Poem "Rushen Glen" and HOPE Fairy art print and quotes

Good Day To All Who Gather in Kindness and Good Intentions! Below is a fabulous poem from Wonder Tales From Fairy Isles. This enchanting book has just come to my attention and I'm on the lookout for a copy of my own. Hard to do since it's out of print ... but the Fae Folk will send a copy my way soon, I just know it. I have to say the older books have a special something ... at least to me they do. So, I hope you enjoy this and be on the lookout for more from this wonderful book.

Rushen Glen
The pale moon wanes,
The morn is cold,

Each Fairy, Elf and Fay
Snug in a flower

Enwraps herself
To wait the broad bright day.

From our flow`ry beds

We rise again

And bathe in the pearly dew`
Then take the air
With a butterfly pair
Linked to a petal blue.
The evening comes,

Adown the Streams,

We sail to the Rushen Glen

On a lily leaf—

And meet once more
In song and dance again.
-Frances Jenkins Olcott, "Wonder Tales from Fairy Isles", 1929

I have include a picture of my HOPE Fairy. She brings HOPE to our world in which we are all in need of I expect. Below are so absolutely fabulous quotes on HOPE. Enjoy all the good energies.

“Dum spiro, spero (Latin), "While I breath, I hope"” ~Philemon Latin Proverb

“There is no despair so absolute as that which comes with the first moments of our first great sorrow, when we have not yet known what it is to have suffered and be healed, to have despaired and have recovered hope.” ~George Eliot

“Hope is the dream of a soul awake.” ~French Proverb
