Do you fairies???

I do! Fairies, gnomes, Santa, the magic of Christmas, I believe in them all!!

This isn't of those posts you can plan for. I was out on my run this morning and ran right by the spot these photos were taken and didn't notice a think. That also means I ran by this spot twice and didn’t notice a thing! I went about the rest of workout and as I finished I decided to go back to my car and get my camera and head back in the woods just for fun. Boy, am I glad I did!!!

I don’t remember what caught my eye first, but something caught my eye and I stopped and took a picture and turned around to go back out on the trail and finish walking toward the stream I had in mind.  When I turned around something else caught my eye. The whole place was cool and made my heart smile.

I walked here a week ago and what I saw today didn't exist then. If it did, I completely missed it.

It warms my heart that someone spent so much time here creating this little haven. I truly wish I had a fairy or a gnome on my car that I could have left behind.  Are you ready to take a peek???

At first glance, or a quick run by, you might not see anything out of the ordinary.
Let's look a little closer.

I do apologize for the quality of a few of the photos.
I was having some camera problems this morning.
I also should have gotten down on ground level for more of the photos.

Little structures at the bases of all the trees in the area.

Look closely. "Structures" all around the tree.
Off the left is a stone surrounded by sticks.
In the background is one of my favorites and the one that has the worst picture. (go figure)

Every time I turned around I would see another.
{{ smile, smile}}

Who do you think they were designed for?
Gnomes? Fairies? Trolls?

To me, it doesn't matter who they were designed for.
Someone took the time and created some magic.
It sure made me glad I decided to go back along the trail for a stroll!

This is the one I mentioned in an earlier picture.
It stood out to me as I took pictures of the others and I couldn't wait to get closer.
It is also one of the worst pictures of the morning.
Just over the bank was another "structure." This structure was made out of rocks.
I couldn't get any sort of angle on it.

Another look. Look closely at the base of the trees.

I'm a believer, so this was a fun morning for me.
Someone else believes too!

As I found more and more of these little wonders I knew there would be a blog post.
I also knew it would include this saying.

Are you a "pinner?"
Here is the link to my fairies and gnomes Pinterest page.
Some day I will have a fairy garden.


The magic sure sparkled in nature after this work out!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs from my small town to where ever you may be!

    1. Thanks for stopping by. I was there today, just on the wrong side of the stream. I think the rain we had washed at least some of them away.

  2. Oh yes, I believe! I love going for walks in the woods too. Perhaps one day I'll find some Fairie magic! I've missed hearing from you......
    Hugs, Darlene
