Flower Fairy Brushes…

“Fairies are invisible and inaudible like angels. But their magic sparkles in nature.”  ~Lynn Holland

It all started with a little walk into the woods…gatheringnature
The warm May sunshine filtered down through the big trees and the smalls were armed each with a basket for nature’s treasures and a big sense of adventure. They each gathered bits of green grass, dried leaves from last autumn, dandelions, lilacs, and any other weed, branch, or seed pod they came across on our walk…gatheringsm
We returned home with our treasures and worked together to create the most beautiful flower fairy brushes…fairybrushes
We used our fairy brushes for our art project that very morning…beautifulbrush2
