I have been invited by Anne **here** to join a blog hop organised by Julie **here**where you tell a little about yourself.....I haven't done a hop in ages, forgot the format and have not listed the questions, but here's mine anyway......
This is pretty much what I look like, an adult sized wood fairy, probably the only one as I have yet to meet others. You can't see my wings unless you believe in fairies. I occasionally fly, usually at night - it's funny - because I always think I have been dreaming afterwards, everyone else is asleep so it's my secret. I do have fairy dust too ... it comes from the sparkle wellies I won in a blogging giveaway a year or so back - there's still plenty of sparkle left.
This little squirrel is my woodland friend, he comes daily to eat an apple from my garden but I often fly up into the trees to see what he is doing. He has a very untidy nest in an oak tree full of acorns.
My house is just behind woodland in leafy Surrey suburbia,
close to an airport, a 45 min train ride to the pebble beaches of Brighton or the bright lights of London depending on which direction I choose. I spend a lot of my spare time in the woods and fields around here walking and sometimes painting what I have seen.

What am I doing at the moment? Painting dandelions - I am experimenting with mixed media on silk (doesn't that sound arty!) and so far have completed the silk painted background. I haven't done mixed media before so it may not work out, but there's no point in standing still, art should be adventurous and fun I think. If it isn't how I want, I will simply leave it in the woods and the fairies will make dresses from it.
I blog because I like the connection with other bloggers, those in other countries particularly, their neighborhood and environment, because their part of the world is different to mine. Creative bloggers inspire and motivate me to be creative too. In my younger days I explored some beautiful countries, nowadays blogging is my means of exploring the World.
|here's a swap I did once with Lou from Emerald Isle|
I really enjoy postal swaps it is so much fun - not only to receive something special from another blogger - but also the challenge of making and finding gifts to send them on a given theme.
|one of the gifts Louise sent on same swap - still treasured|
I have also won some lovely giveaways - the most beautiful being my Hunter Sparkle Wellies mentioned earlier - they really are full of glitter.
oops, I seem to have lost one, will have to do a spell to try and find it.
I will leave you with a picture of Ambercat - we love her dearly, she likes walks in the woods, fish and having her hair brushed (daily, by all four of us - she's always asking!).
Thank you for stopping by, I don't have anyone to pass the hop on to so instead am casting a spell that will compel anyone who believes in fairies to continue the good work, leave a comment and maybe do a little post about yourself... anyone reading my comments will know where to find you! Magic.
