Away with the Faeries!

“When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laughter broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies."

If the author of the enchanting tale of Peter Pan is to be believed then Sir James Matthew Barrie will not doubt be reassured to discover that there is still at least one faery that can be found skipping about within the stone walls that surround the ancient City of York, although at first glance, she may be mistaken for just another conventional human; appearances can be deceptive!

For those of you who have known me since childhood, it will be of little surprise to discover that the return to my hometown of York has reawakened those mystical qualities of my character and with the opportunity to acquaint myself with the inhabitants who reside at the bottom of my new garden; my fascination for all things fey has taken flight as it were...

And now with my wings firmly in place as the Crooked Hen, I’m either engrossed in my own little world in a new studio at 1 Bar Lane that is nestled withing the shadow of Micklegate Bar within the ancient City of York or I'm at the bottom of my garden getting messy with paint. wood and glue!

And it is from within the cosy confines of this studio that I am working on the design of one of two rather unique 12th scale structures stuffed with those fantastical and whimsical items that I hope will add a perfect finishing touch to the shopping experience for the inhabitants of the All Hallows Hamlet!

You can now join me in the magickal world of the All Hallows Hamlet over at Away With the Faeries! AND as I burrow down and get on with some more work!
