A magical blog from Magical Mel
Saturday 11th July we celebrated 5 years of Cumbrian Fairy Day at Highhead Sculpture Valley and wow was it fun .My Magical Day began with writing a letter to The fairy Queen and enjoying a cup of coffee from The Sugar Shack.I continued through the gallery where I made my wish at The Wish Tree for an amazing day,treat myself to a stunning necklace from Under the Ivy and decorated a Fairy Cake with Fairy Cakes.By this time i needed a little rest on the amazing carved toadstools situated on the lawn ,before i followed the fairy trail through the fairy village and past the park.Crossing over and through the Enchanted wood I arrived at the disco for a go on the human fruit machine and a dance with Maddison Entertainment.Gave a wave to the wonderful Peppa who attends every year raising money for charity.
I then had to creep past the Dragon Cave so i could purchase some fairy plant pots from Heevis Miniatures.The Creation Station were busy making wands under the toadstool shelter and there was a strange looking fairy hanging around sock Monkeys,with Monkeys of all descriptions a delight to see them swinging of the gazeebo.Time for a bounce with Cracking castles and some chocolate from Fantasweets.Pyjama Drama was in full swing and Super Sarah was surrounded by smiley children.
Time for a qick pixie pee and across the fairy bridge i went with a bang on the drums provided by Ben Sound Sculptures and a tinkle past the Fairy Hair stand where i met Liz from Baby Sensory who offers wonderful classes .A hop skip and a jump upto the hill where The Little Bead Shop gave me a beautiful Fairy Necklace and i got to see the amazing artwork of Raven Wolf.Just Tutu gorgeous took my breath away with their array of things and a story from a real viking made my ears prick up ,amazing to see the boys listening so carefully to his tales.Beautiful sounds and maypole dancing came from Pixie Creations,I even tried to join in.
Down the hill and into Fairyland i went where children were making Wishing jars within the colourful wish room.Next Door the girls were busy sparkling everyone up and to the other side the Valley store where our resident Tooth Fairy could be found (Peggy) she even had real Tooth Fairy Coins.The craft tent was busy with party hat making,butterfly decorating and our Good Knight was on hand to help make sheilds. Fairies.Fairies were enjoying a picnic ,playing with toys and hula hooping.We even made some Fairy Mud which was really really good.The Fire Fairy Freyja and Didi Fairy were being hunted down in the Real Life Fairy Hunt
A visit to Malc Spour tent my wonderful talented artist who created all my fairy images from my imagination.A very excited photographer was hiding in a bush with a huge smile of excitement as Kerry from Imagerry by Kerry captured the moments and memories.Sparkly Moon Dream hugs were then received by the lovely Emms from Moondream Jewellery and even more hugs and smiles from Aggy Mays who provided me with all the stunning Bunting around The Valley.Flying past our Wonderful Elf and Safety man before i got a ticket a managed to flutter in for Jelli Nelli Hugs as she artistically painted children and adults faces.To finish the day a parade was had and it was lovely to be a part of it with all the giggles smiles and laughter.My Fairy helpers were amazing throughout the day,Kids loved seeing the Good Knight ,Pixie and Spiderman from Superlease .Not forgetting I got to finally meet Tink in the woods how cool.
Mostly I have to say that my aim was to provide families with a fun filled day with plenty on offer to encourage many magical memories.I do feel this was accomplished as i take away in my heart the children's smiles ,the parents laughter,the outfits and sparkle.
I Thank my friends and family for supporting me with all I do and i think all the visitors who attended for believing in Fairies because they believe in you...
