I’m creating a new category on my blog entitled “fairy tales” I love every thing about fairy’s, so this category is dedicated to all things “fairy“
“To A Child”
Edith Nesbit 1858-1924
The Fairies have been busy while you slept: They have been laughing where the sad rains wept. They have taught beauty to the ignorant flowers, set tasks of hope to weary wind-torn bowers and heard the lessons learned in school- rooms cold by seedling snapdragons and marigold. At dawn, while still you slept, I grew aware how good the fairies are, how many and fair.
The fairy whose delightful gown is red..across a corner of our garden sped, and where her flying raiment fluttered past, it’s roseate reflection still is cast: Red poppies by the rhododendrums’s side, Paeonies gorgeous in their summer pride, and red may-bushes by the old red wall..shower down their crimson petals over all.
Then she whose gown is gold, and gold her hair, swept down the golden steep straight sunbeam stair, she lit the tulip lamps, she lit the torch of hollyhock beside the cottage porch. She dressed the honeysuckle in fringe of gold, she gave the king-cups fairy wealth to hold, she kissed St. John’s wort till it opened wide, she set the yarrow by the river side.
Then came the lady all whose robes are white: she made the pale bud blossom in delight, set silver stars upon the jasmine’s hair, and gave the stream white lilly-buds to wear. She painted lilies white and pearl-white phlox, white poppies, passion flowers and grey leaved stocks. Her pure kind touch redeemed the most forlorn, and even the vile petunia smiled, new born.

Nereids Bath Salts are an ultra moisturizing blend that contains solar evaporated sea salts from the costal region of California, Pink Himalayan Sea Salts, Epsom Salts and premium fragrance oil with top notes of ocean mist, sea moss, and cyclamen. Followed by middle notes of geranium flower, and coriander seed on base notes of white cedar wood and earthy vetiver.
You receive 16 ounces of bath salts packaged in an up cycled mason jar. I painted the jar lid to add a rustic appeal, and hand stamped the top with a mermaid in metallic green paint. The jar can be used as a pin cushion and or storage jar. The pictures show some other uses. Store your beach treasures, sewing notions or just about anything. The padded top is also scented to match the bath salts and the inside of the lid contains a little bit of trivia about the Nereides in Greek Mythology
The oyster shell scoop, that was found on a sunny Florida beach is included. The other accessories in the photos are not included. Click on the photo to get to my Etsy shop.
THE NEREIDES (or Nereids) were fifty Haliad Nymphs or goddesses of the sea. They were the patrons of sailors and fishermen, who came to the aid of men in distress, and goddesses who had in their care the sea’s rich bounty. Individually they also represented various facets of the sea, from salty brine, to foam, sand, rocky shores, waves and currents, in addition to the various skills possessed by seamen.

Just living is not enough… One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
Hans Christian Anderson
Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains. Diane Ackerman
What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable Joseph Addison
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
