Bless This Place

Hand in hand, with fairy grace,
Will we sing, and bless this place. ~William Shakespeare

Upon our return from the Ribbon Of Sand, we went to check on our fairy fort. We discovered that the fairy feast had been devoured and it appeared that a wild rumpus had taken place. Inside the fairy fort, Satch found two wings.

Mama, YOOK! Cicada wings!

Really? Hmmm...look closely, they look a bit different somehow.
What are they? found them in your fairy fort, right?

What a lovely gift!

Then he carefully cupped the delicate wings in his wee hands and carried them home where he placed them in
the tiny treasure box that his aunt "Lola" gave him.

His treasures include: an army of Cicada shells, a handful of the tiniest acorns you've ever seen and a dried flower from our garden.

*Postscript: I honestly don't know how the "fairy wings" turned up in his fairy fort. I do know, however, that I have been noticing lots of Cicada wings on the ground and have been collecting them for future projects.
