Fairy Flower Crowns For Lexie and all!

My Grandiedaughter Lexie and her two
sisters Ruthie and Nattie came to stay!
 Lexie is reading the Hobbit
Lord of The Rings series
by J. R. R.Tolkien

One Ring inscription.svg

She is serious into it reciting quotes
and poems and even wears 
 the " One Ring" around her neck!

She thought that it would be great fun to 
go out to collect flowers from the orchard
and yard and make some Fairy Flower (or Elven) Crowns!!

So we gathered doggies and goaties,
baskets and snippers and away we
went out to the magical orchard

~Lottie and Molly~

The goldenrod was taller then me!! 

Nattie thought that Molly should wear a shawl

Everyone was happy to stick together!

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men, doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.” 
J.R.R. TolkienThe Lord of the Rings

Pixie and Sadie found three holes in the ground!!

Lexie was sure that it was an entrance to another world....
Gnomes, or the land of Faerie!!
(Trolls or Hobbits are much to big)!!

Or maybe BOGGARTS!!!


Beloved, I wish above all things
that thou mayest prosper
and be in health,
even as thy soul prospereth.

We are remembering her fondly!

Tasha Tudor... Busy at what she loved doing

Back home we found more 
delightful willing flowers!!


Lexie was so very pleased!

Doesn't Lexie look very much like

We had GREAT FUN!! 


Every one was happy!

Lexie thought that Molly Goat should have 
a wreath to wear so she made a lovely one
for her!!

She worked very hard to make it lovely!

Molly looked very pleased to see her wreath

...although she was more pleased with the taste!!

"Where there is life there's hope,
and need of  vittles"
J.R.R. TolkienThe Lord of the Rings

Ruthie found it to be a little too humorous
for Lexie's patience!

Mama Mousiekin and Missie
also made Fairy Crowns!

There are many tiny flowers around
still in bloom to choose from!

Some friends followed the 
Mousiekin family home 
from the Orchard !!

Hope you enjoyed!
Many many Blessings, Linnie
and Grandies & Mousiekins
Doggies & Goaties!

  1. Dear Linnie, your day with the girls is just magical! What wonderful memories you are creating for those lucky gals! I loved every photo of the girls, you, the goats and your doggies! Your property is just the right place to find magic! xoxo ♥

  2. Very lovely. So very Tasha! Thank you for sharing Linnie

  3. Dearest Linnie,
    A day to remember, always! Like something out of Tasha's book! And yes, Lexie does look like one of the illustrations in Tasha Tutors book. You have some precious photos here... Such joy.
    You look simply lovely Linnie.. and the girls looks precious.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

  4. What a wonderful, magical day you all had. I just love all your flowery bonnets and garlands ~ and everyone, including the Mousiekins joined in the fun! LOTR, my top favourite book. Read it once a year, whether I need to or not!
    Thank you for sharing such a precious memory~making day!

  5. Oh Linnie, your world does not speak to me, IT SINGS TO ME! IT DOES!

    I have no one here close by to play with as such. All of you are too far away! But if I had at least one person who would indulge me in this most wonderful play, I would have also made crowns, create scenarios in my garden, even played my harp in the garden!

    Animals, wildflowers, children, tiny mousekins, this is what is necessary for such summer play! I LOVE IT ALL. Every turn and twist of the grapevine, every bloom on the crown of each head, so magical. CElEBRATE MY FRIEND! How I adore you...

  6. This looks like so much fun, Linnie! My daughter loves to read the Tolkien books, so I'm going to send her this link. :)

  7. Linnie, this is so cute!! The flower wreaths are beautiful! Did you use willow or grapevine branches as a base? Your dress and apron are so pretty! Is that your vintage Laura Ashley? Fun times with your grand girls that they will remember forever!

  8. "A wonderful time was had by all!" I love your faerie crowns!

  14. Lovely Elven ladies, including Molly in her shawl.How nice to have grand-daughters to frolic with and critters to tag along for the fun of it. I used to take a long trail through our woods with 3 goats,3 dogs and 4 cats all following along, every day. For some reason your post put me in mind of it. Your grands are very pretty girls!
