Peddler’s Village with Fairies

Chris and Chardonnay went to Peddler’s Village this weekend and had a fantastic time!

This was a neat Scarecrow.  We love the Phanatic!

The weather was picture perfect.  Cool and sunny and we were surrounded by flowers!

Dave is Chris’ favorite Minion!

I almost fell off the fence I was sitting on…hence my expression!

Lahaska is a beautiful area in Pennsylvania.  Autumn weather is beginning to take hold here and I couldn’t be happier!

Teddy couldn’t come with us this trip so Chardonnay and I stopped into his favorite German Store and got him a little treat from the homeland.

It was a perfect day!

The World Famous Lucy the Elephant

This year the roomie, the Fairies and Bean went to see Lucy the Elephant in Margate, New Jersey.  I have to say…that’s one GIANT Elephant.

She has survived for over 100 years and is an amazing sight to behold.

Inside she is a museum but she has housed many other things in her great history from a residence to a bar.

Thankfully the locals kept Lucy alive after she fell into disrepair.  She got a total rehab and is now an historical landmark in New Jersey!

The view from the top of Lucy was spectacular.  She’s not your standard museum.  If you are in Margate, New Jersey go and give her a hug.  Tell them The Fairies sent ya!

The Day Chardonnay Became Art

20130705_113855

Chardonnay seems to be enjoying her foray into becoming a living piece of art.  I asked her if this was her ‘Performance Art’.  She responded…”Yeah, sure why not”.  Followed by laughter.  She’s an odd duck be we love her anyway!

We have become “besties” since she moved in.  She doesn’t care I’m dead and green and I don’t care she’s always drunk.  We are cool like that!

Lifestyles of the Fairies and Trolls

We got to have a day of frolic at our friend Chestnut’s house.

He has this wonderful pool.  Nothing says summertime like swimming and hanging out with friends.

Chardonnay got to catch up with Chris over a bottle of wine and then they both noticed that Phin had fallen down.

Phin is always falling down and he’s quite the photo bomber.

Everyone had fun.  It was like old Fairies week and everyone got a chance to dance with Phinneas because that’s what he does…dances, lol.

Summer 2013 – Arts and Crafts

We traveled over to Millville, New Jersey to visit a place called Wheaton Village.

It was a hot day but all of these trees made it palatable.

They make pottery and blow their own glass.  It was very hot in the kiln but pretty awesome to watch. (p.s. This sculpture looks nothing like me!)

Okay this one might look a little like me 🙂

It was an informative trip and a lovely day to just sashay about the compound.  You should totally check it out if you live near New Jersey.  The month of July is free admission!
