Summon a fairy

Sit where the cat sits.

Cross your toes.

Close your eyes.

And smell a rose.

Then say under your breath:

"I believe in Fairies, sure as death.

Gadflykins! Gladtrypins!

Gutterpuss and Cass!

Come to me fairily

Each lad and lass!"

A fairy call from Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book by Terry Jones

I love fairies. We went to a rummage sale Sunday morning and I picked up a book of fairy postcards and one of Cicely Mary Barker’s books, “Flower Fairies of the Trees”. If you can’t get enough of fairies, check out this gorgeous site, The Faery Crossing.
