The Mulberry Fairy
AS a gift to Emma's teachers, each family made a little figure or item to go into a basket of goodies for the classroom. Since there are mulberry trees in the play yard and the children have been coming home with purple-stained smiles, Emma and I decided a mulberry fairy would be fitting. We drew inspiration from the flower fairy illustrations by Cicely Mary Barker. This jolly little fellow will have lots of fun in his new home, I think.
