Poppy Responds


Poppy the Fairy received these prompt responses to her questions from Ava and Aria. The messages were folded in half, rolled into scrolls and tied with white cord.


Poppy gave it some thought, and decided to combine favorite colors and letters and fun paper folding.


Cutting the letters from watercolor paper.


Protoype fold for Ava.


Aria likes pink! And bacon too! (not pictured).


Will of course make use of the scrap paper.


Both sides painted, replies written, awaiting final assembly.


When I went down to mail them, I found this appreciation in the Fairy Mail box.


Awaiting delivery. One of the things Poppy mentioned in her replies is that she is going away for nine sleeps, coincidentally the length of time my neighbor, who takes walks with the girls, will be away on vacation. Hopefully I’ll have time for some landscaping and an oversized Fairy Mail bin before Poppy returns.

For the record, Poppy the Fairy does not know what poptarts or bacon are, likes both water and parks, her favorite color is orange, and she likes pink the most in flowers and the sky.

    I’ll anxiously await the upcoming messages to and from Poppy and Ava & Aria. Perhaps you could ‘Google’ pop tarts!

      Tremendous fun! I just saw a video the girls’ father made of them retrieving and opening their mail from Poppy, and having their letters read to them: pure joy and whirling :D

    What an amazing correspondence you have started between the fairy in your garden and the two little girls…they’ll remember this the rest of their lives! The name art is fabulous and I can picture this saved in a memory box…how fun this will be for you and the girls but a little vacation break will be appreciated too!

      What a sweet thought, and hmmmm… the idea of a memory box…
      It’s my neighbor who goes for walks with the girls who is going on vacation, though. I hope to continue work on the fairy house and garden. Building a public — and child-friendly — installation has a much different set of concerns than an indoor, adults-only one :)

    I’m delighted to be a party to this! Too cute for sure! The girls could not have been more excited! Ohhhhhhhh it was soooooo cute.

      This wouldn’t be happening without you, Lynn. So much joy and excitement is contagious :) Have a wonderful getaway to the mountain. It was a favorite camping spot of my family when I was a kid.
