Charlotte the youngest of my grandchildren. I made her this little fairy jar when she asked if she could have one too. Charlotte's mum captured her making a wish. Children believe such a lot when they are so young and everything is so real and magical.
I have just completed an Enchanted Land today something I have not done in a while. This time I thought I would go along the lines of a very old Nursery Rhyme Little Bo- Peep. So the little delightful Fairy baby has been dressed to depict Bo-Peep. I have made her crook from some wool I had left and give her some sheep.
This verse was taught to me as a child and passed down to my two children. When my granddaughter asked me who she was and I explained she did not have a clue, which is quite sad.
The first recorded verse was 1805 and there were other verses added later but I personally only know the most common.
Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep,
And doesn’t know where to find them,
Leave them alone and they’ll come home,
Wagging their tails behind them.
She is for sale on my Store and if I ever make another she will always be an original in the way she is dressed and presented.
