Faery Finery Redux -

Awhile back I posted photos of faery dresses for the faery nieces. Here are some of the promised photos of the nieces actually *in* the dresses -

Here they are with scary Dad...

...and here are the faeries themselves...





From gray woods they come,
on silent feet
Into a cone of light.
A lifting note,
O fair! O fleet!
There the night through
We take our pleasure,
Dancing to such a measure
As earth never knew.

Your fairy nieces are, as always, delightful. And their dad looks pretty spiffy too, in a ballroom-from-Labyrinth kinda way.

Those dresses look wonderful.
Makes me wish I could sew. Sadly I'm hopeless.:)

The girls look beautiful in the most perfect fairy dresses. ever.

Great photography, too! Of course, I think the poem is the icing on the cake.

There, I guess I like all the elements of this post very much! :)
