The Night before the Tea of the Fey

Fey : Having or displaying an otherworldly, magical, or fairylike aspect or quality

I am

Hemlock Elfshimmer

And this is my friend
Pink Ears, the fey bunny

And this is my very bestest friend

Nettle Willowdancer

She casts weird dreams.
She lives in brambles and blackberry bushes.
She can only be seen when the bees swarm 
and the crickets chirrup.
She wears blue and green like berries 
and leaves and has delicate lilac coloured wings like a cicada.

and this is where we live in the magical woods

Word History: The history of the words fey and fay illustrates a rather fey coincidence. Our word fay, "fairy, elf," the descendant of Middle English faie, "a person or place possessed of magical properties," and first recorded around 1390, goes back to Old French fae, "fairy," the same word that has given us fairy. Fae in turn comes from Vulgar Latin Fta, "the goddess of fate," from Latin ftum, "fate." If fay goes back to fate, so does fey in a manner of speaking, for its Old English ancestor fge meant "fated to die." The sense we are more familiar with, "magical or fairylike in quality," seems to have arisen partly because of the resemblance in sound between fay and fey.

Today is a very exciting day ............

We are putting together a marvellous tea party for tomorrow!!  Pink Ears can hardly wait
for the guests to arrive!!

We are taking out the best china!  Of course,
our cups are ever so tiny,
but with a drop of magic - who knows
what may happen?

We have invited ever such exciting and mysterious guests ........

She is waiting on the Prince ....

who is travelling all the way from the romantic city of Paris 

then the Fey Queen of England herself promised to come ......

She will arrive in a golden coach
and have her very own special cup

Then there are still my very good friend Red Riding Hood, the mermaids
and their friends and my little witchy friend with her magic spells and potions .......

you have another few hours left before the clock strikes 12

at midnight
the fairy lights will go on
and I will be expecting you
