Fairy Bearys Go South....
The Time had come, Dear Readers, when the two sister Bearys, Marmalade and Buttercup, were ready to leave the Cloud Palace and travel to their own home way far away in the South. While this might be a moment when Some would feel some Sorrow, the Fairy Bearys did not seem to feel this way at all! They had spent the entire Summer and Autumn with their friends in the Cloud Palace and had enjoyed many Adventures together. They were Happily looking forward to seeing their new Home and meeting new friends when they arrived. There was an air of excitement at the Cloud Palace as the morning dawned and the sun peeked into the Cloud Palace parlor. All the Fairy Bearys were gathered there for a "send-off" breakfast of blueberry pancakes drenched in syrup, and even an assortment of delicate cookies and a blueberry pie! Hamish Harry "Hotcakes" McCloud had outdone himself (with the very Helpful creativity of Elizabeth of Studio E blog!) in preparing this breakfast banquet!
(These treats were all made by the Awesomely talented Elizabeth! Thank you Elizabeth!)
He wanted to be sure that Nobeary would leave the Cloud Palace hungry....
especially with such a long journey ahead of them!
And so they enjoyed a Feast to Remember!
But before long the Time had come for leaving.
The Bearys had decided that the best way to Travel
was the Cherub Cloud Chariot Express....
And they had booked the Early Morning Departure
on this Perfectly sunny Day!
Buttercup was eager to get started so she hopped on board!
And Marmalade was right behind her!
They waved "good-bye" and blew their kisses....
And the Cherub Cloud Chariot Express floated away from the Cloud Palace....
And while there were Some who Might feel a little pang of sadness.....
the Bearys were not among them!
They knew that they were heading off on more Great adventures!
They couldn't wait to get started!
What a Glorious Day for an Adventure!
Wouldn't you be excited to be Traveling to your New Home?
And all the Fairy Bearys at the Cloud Palace
are just as excited for their friends!
They know that they will be bringing Happiness wherever they go!
Because that is what these Bearys are...
they are Little Gifts of Happiness!
And speaking of Gifts of Happiness....
I received a surprise package in the mail today!
But seeing who it is from, it is not altogether a Surprise!
Because Birgit is one of those friends who
Spreads Happiness with everything she does!
She sent me her Christmas Gift package......
with a Calendar and Advent wreath and tiny wooden decoration!
Thank you, Birgit!!!
But it is the Fairy Bearys that spring from her Needle (and her heart!)
that are Truly Little Gifts of Happiness!
And in case you had wondered
about Marmalade and Buttercup,
they have arrived safely at my Sister's home
where she reports that they have filled Hope Cottage
with sunshine and Happiness and their smiles alone warmed the tea!
So you see, Dear Readers,
The Fairy Bearys have gone South,
But they took with them The Gift of Happiness!
