Oh where or where have all the good fairies gone?
Greetings from the rehearsal for "Fairy Hour"
April 11, 1925
Any ideas about our theme this week?
Does this photo by Alan, from Sepia Saturday give you any clues?
Did I hear somebody mention "Health Fairy?" In a room filled with eager ears in 1920.
Come, let me read what it says on the back of this photograph.
"What sorcery within a night has made a city street into a fairy glade?"
They mention this location is possibly Detroit, Michigan. Or, could it be Saint Paul, Minnesota?
Searching for fairies......
I thought for a moment this couple might be able to explain.
When I asked what they were shooting out in the forest she replied, "Fairies..."
But he snorted, "Hogwash! Fairies aren't real."
This is what their camera view was, The Buckstone, at Forest of Dean, England.
Could fairies be lurking, or frolicking in playful rhythm here?
A short film about standing stones and other spiritual places within the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean. One stone carries the story about pricking it with a pin at the stroke of midnight and the stone will bleed!
Perhaps we could send a letter requesting more information to King Charles, at
King Charles Tower, Chester, England?
Somebody there should know don't you think?
Just look at the time, I've run out of Sepia Saturday moments since today I'm on Island time
and wouldn't you know the Glanderbrasses are putting on a Garden Party at
Florence Kimball (above) and escort are being offered food already. All the important folks are already arriving!
In closing about our dear fairy theme, I believe this short video explains why we haven't been able to catch any fairies and post them here.
Please watch "How to see fairies"
So until next week, be assured I'll keep my eyes open for any fairies I may meet along the week!
