A Rose By Any Other Name ...

A ROSE by any other name would be just as sweet, according to Shakespeare, but this seemed particularly true when my daughter transformed the fragrant flower into a lovely little umbrella getting splattered by luscious raindrops. She also turned the petals into rosy ruffles for a tiny tutu worn by a ballerina fairy that she sketched.


I considered how the umbrella and ballerina might one day fit into my BC Fairies collection.

I am always a happy recipient of my daughter's creative endeavors but this recent combining of real, artistic and imaginary put my mind in a whirl.

Suddenly I had the urge to wade into the backyard garden where snippets of fluttering lavender appeared.

That is when I knew I had found the perfect fairy wings for some fanciful future project in my world.

  3. I do love the “rose umbrella” and I’d like to have a “rose skirt”. I’m so attracted by your daughter’s creative sense and your eyes to be able to spot out such translucent lavendar fairy wings, Penelope.

  9. Goodness,Penelope, you and your daughter really make a wonderful team in your artistic endeavours. The delicacy in all three images is just breathtaking and the potential for the imagination to soar with the umbrella or dance with the ballerina or fly on the wings of your future fairy feels absolutely unlimited.

  13. How ingenious and pretty! she obviously takes after you...
    I just love those Flower Fairies books, I have some of the old ones from the 1920s and 1930s. I think they're somehow nicer than the modern reproductions.

    I was as into the flower fairies as my daughter was for a while there. Great fun!
