A Magical Letter from the Fairies! - The Magic Onions

A Magical Letter from the Fairies!

You wont believe what happened this morning! When we went outside to explore the day, we noticed sparkles on the patio! Then more sparkles! It was a trail… a fairy trail!

It was fairy dust! Do yo see it sparkling in the early morning sun!
We followed the trail all around the garden.
It dusted the flower beds,
Sparkling in a most enchanting way!
Finally we saw something unusual under the printers tray.

A scroll of ancient looking paper!
But it was most odd… the paper was blank! There was nothing written on it! We couldn’t figure it out.
And then Mother had a very brilliant idea… perhaps we should paint on the paper to see if anything special happens.
We got out our water colors and began marking the magical paper with bright colors…
LOOK what happened!
Beautifull fairy drawings emerged! Magically!
This is what the fairies drew for us… a butterfly, a snail and a flower. We discovered that they were trying to tell us something, that the pictures were a letter to us, and this is what K decided the letter said…
One fairy came on a butterfly, another came on a snail, to say thank you for all the beautiful flowers in our garden.
We feel very honored to have received a fairy letter and now we know that fairies DO live in our garden.
Blessings and magic…
PS – this is how the fairies wrote their letter; they started with plain, white paper. They used a white candle to draw their picture on the paper and, voila! they had a magical, invisible fairy letter that reveals itself only when painted on with water color paints. Wink, wink!
