Looking through my photos on my camera I found these photos which I took ages ago and totally forgot to share them. What a dope!
These fairy shoes belonged to Lady Lillie Fairy. She’s rather a big deal in The Land of the Fae. She’s the Fairy equivalent of our Dame (a title bestowed only by the Queen (or who ever is the Monarch at the time) in the UK). She’s well-respected and treated as a high-ranking Fairy among those who reside in the Land of the Fae.
She has her clothes made by Fairyland Designers, and shoes made by a Cobbler called Cobwebs. (Yes, I know, how incredible is that? Me=Cobwebs; Cobwebs=Cobbler! Who woulda thunk?!).
Possibly made from the petals of a Lily which one can find only in Fairy Land. (or they might have been made from Polymer. [cough]) Can you see the teeny tiny stamens – which don’t leave any stains on your clothes – peeping out from the insides of the inner petals of the Lily? They’re made from the same stuff.
The decoration which you see to the front of the shoes are teeny tiny green glass beads, which are hung on copper wire. These beads give the most delightful tinkling noise as the shoes are moved, which makes every step taken ring out in an ethereal, magical, almost imagined sound, – but it’s not imagined, for you really can hear it – as you would expect from a Fairy!
Of course, no shoes were stolen in order to share these shoes with you. These shoes were left under a Fairy toadstool, in a place which is clearly labelled “Sharing the Shoes” – so that a passing Fairy might stumble upon them and try them for size, or a human, with an eye for Fairies, might find them and either add them to a collection (as I do) or might begin a collection.
These Fairy Lillie Shoes were brought to you by Cobwebs.
Have a spiffing Saturday! Be good to yourself, and be lovely to anyone you come into contact with. The Fairies would approve. 😉
