Fairy Festival

The Nantucket Lighthouse School is having a Garden Festival. Here is my donation for the auction.
It's a shadow box of Fairies having tea.There is the woodland Fairy and the Fluffy Fairy.
I made the fairies out of papier mache clay.
Then I added everything else! There will be Author Tracy Kane there to show everyone how to make fairy houses. What fun!
I used butterfly lace on the sides. Vintage flocked pansies and other buds adorn the forest.
Tea cups on top of an old broken mushroom Christmas ornament that I have been saving for years. Glad to have found it a home! Have fun at the Festival! Cherrio! :)

Beets For Supper

I've been buying all different colored beets at the farmers market. I have decided what to do with them....
I subscribe to Food52 news letter. They have great ideas and recipes ! Like these yummy beet greens in a sour cream dressing.
And this crumbly tart crust made a special way. It's from Paule Caillat and you can get the recipe here.
Now the question is....what to fill it with? I know where we can pick some blueberries.....:):) ( all of these photos from Food52)
And then all to do is add some beautiful flowers to the table and Supper is ready! (Flower photo from the wonderful Saipua) I hope you are enjoying your Summer!

But I will today!
The weekend was lovely....hope everybody on the Island had fun at the beach!
