After Bella and Pip got into the house yesterday they must have gone right back to the faerie mound and told all the rest of them because now they all want to come in! I opened the front door to check the mail and three fairies darted past me and immediately began tormenting my chihuahua’s by riding on their backs and blowing in their ears. Chihuahua’s ears are bigger than the fairies so I swear it looked like they could just walk in.

Of course, the dogs didn’t like the attention of these little creatures at all and they starting running around the house barking and jumping and growling, they made such a commotion. There I was trying to shoo the dogs into their kennels and at the same time, shoo the fairies out the door. I was able to get two of them out but one disappeared. After I settled the dogs down, I went searching the house for the stray faerie. I found her when I heard a crash come from the kitchen. She had been walking on a stack of glasses, the stack tipped over and she got caught in one when it landed upside down on top of her. With my hand under the glass, I carried her over to the door and released her to fly back through the hole in the ivy.

I wrote to my brother a while back about my little faerie friends and how excited I was to be able to finally see them and ask if he had any good ideas on how to make sure they didn’t get into trouble.  My brother is a pirate and sails the high seas out from Scotland. I think he took after the progenitor of our family, Phillip Brenagh (Phillip being known as “Phillip the Welshman”) Phillip and his brother, David, made a habit of pillaging and plundering back in the early 1100’s.

He offered the use of some of the gremlins he had taken off of a ship that they  had pillaged, said they were great for chasing  the fairies out of his dandelion fields! Well, as far as I’m concerned, I’ll take the fairies. Sunny and her friends might be a little mischievous but at least they don’t turn into little devils if they eat after midnight.

In the old country, people are very aware of the little darlings and all that they can do. I have to say that their experience of the little people is a bit different from here in the States. The Fairies origins began over  in Ireland with the Tuatha Dé Danann and the people there have been dealing with the Fae ever since, and it wasn’t always pleasant.

I wonder if the fairies are getting a little bored with the wet weather?

Fun Fairie Facts

You Know a Fairie is Present When...

You hear a whispering of leaves.
You see a whirlwind.
You feel a tingling sensation in your hair.
You have an unexplained loss of time.
You laugh uncontrollably, or feel exceptionally silly.
You see blades of grass bending when there
is no one around.

The Most Likely Place for Fairie Portals Are...

Lake shores
Glades in the forest
Where two roads intersect
Fences and border hedges (this is Arial's favorite)
Stairwells, hallways and landings
Tidal pools
Bends in a road
