I went bargain shopping at my local Goodwill this week and lo and behold I found a fairy dress just waiting for me!
I have amazing luck at thrift stores. When I get the urge to bargain hunt (maybe 4 times a year) I always find the perfect things! I was shopping for an outfit for my parent’s 60th anniversary party this summer. I not only found the perfect party frock, but a pair of overalls, just my size, and a magical dress to nurture my FireBonnet fairy self.
We the Fairies, blithe and antic,
Of dimensions not gigantic,
Though the moonshine mostly keep us,
Oft in orchards frisk and peep us.
I simply took it for granted that it would fit… since it was waiting for me. And it does… I’m ready to dance in the moonshine!
I found a wonderful instrumental piece, Granuaile’s Dance, performed by Máiréad Nesbitt of the group Celtic Woman. Please enjoy her fairy dance and the magical dress she wears. A side note, my full name is Máirghéad (pronounced “mah-raid”) so it was serendipitous to find this music!
I’m joining Becca Givens’ Nurturing Thursday. As always I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day.
