These are my cherished gifts from Teresa Martínez, all the way from Spain! Earlier this year, she mailed me a copy of the Miniaturas magazine where my doll, Sunehra, was featured. Along with the magazine, she sent me her wonderful creations of marmalade and the Christmas wreath. My photos don't do justice to the detail ... if you could only see the itsy bitsy slices of lemon and qiwi! From the bottom of my heart, Teresa, Thank You!

"Usually, the Fairies of the Woodshire live in simple nests...sometimes in the trees of the enchanted forest or in the hollows of fragrant leaves on the ground, or in a cozy cave upon a hillside. But if the Dreamweaver sends a sleeping fairy a dream of living in a cottage it is then their destiny to build that cottage. Only natural resources of the realm may be used, so the Fairy must wander the forests and fields of the realm, gathering the wood and stones they will need to complete their dwelling, no matter how long it takes. Once the Cottage is completed, the Dreamweaver grants them peace, and the Fairy can cease wandering and live happily in their dwelling."
"The Fairies of the Woodshire Realm often say...
May the Peace of the Dreamweaver always be with you. "
"The outside of the Cottage is landscaped with pretty flowers and bushes. A lavender-flowered vine trails up to the rooftop garden and over the roof."
"Inside, a fireplace warms the main room of the Cottage. A chair sits comfortably in front of a bookcase filed with potions and books, and a basket next to the chair holds the latest Fairy News. The skylight in the dining room offers warm sunlight during the day and a view of the stars at night."
"This fairy once lived in a nest in the trees of the enchanted forest when the Dreamweaver sent him the dream of living in a Cottage. The fairy knew they would miss the gentle motion of the swaying trees, so they designed a hanging bed for their sleeping quarters."
