Flossy’s Easter Bonnet

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

Oh Dear! Oh Dear! Oh Dear! Hello my Faiylings! I am so very busy and I have not written in so very very long! Well let me tell you what is happening – EASTER!

Do you know what that means – the Easter Bunny is coming and we have to get ready for the Parade and the Fair and the Easter Bonnet Competition. The Easter Bonnets are my favourite part! Every Fairy Princess keeps her bonnet a secret until the day and then we all come out to the parade in our beautiful bonnets! The Fairy Queen and her Prince judge the competition and I think mine might just win this year!

Shhhhh and make sure you only whisper it is a super huge secret! I am making a real live bonnet! My bunny Bounce, who you know is pink and fluffy, is going to hop around a big square bonnet and hide easter eggs! Bounce is going to have a beautiful grassy platform and some lovely little shrubs which the elves kindly gathered for me. And then I got some colours from Rainbow, some star dust from, well Stardust and some beautiful glitter from Sparkles to decorate the little eggs. And I just have to go and see Petals and Poppy to get some flowers from the forest and some long, curly ribbons to tie it under my chin from Ribbons!

Oh this is so exciting! I can’t wait to see how it turns out! I will be sure to tell you all about it next time!

Fairy Princess Blossom’s London Easter

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Hello Fairies!!!

Its Blossom calling again from a land far, far away called London in the United Kingdom. Oh how lucky I have been these past 6 months. Can you believe that I have been away from Fairland for 6 months now?? How time flies – and oh how I miss the Fairy Queen and all the Fairies in our land!!! But I have some VERY VERY VERY exciting news to tell you.

Over Easter I was flying around just enjoying the views of our land when a little blue bird caught up to me and said the Easter Bunny needed some help. Well let me tell you, I flew straight to him to see what I could do. Turns out his poor little Easter Maid fell quite ill and wouldn’t be able to help him hand out his special chocolate coated Easter eggs to all the smiling children for Easter. I simply must help I said. So, for 4 days I went and helped the Easter Bunny hand out bundles of chocolate Easter eggs for all the boys an girls in London.

It was a very big job, but we had so much fun and the Easter Bunny is such a funny bunny.. Afterwards I shouted him to a big glass of carrot juice and gave him a chocolate coated carrot for Easter. He told me to send on many hugs and kisses to the children back in Australia and he hopes that you all got some really special Easter Eggs. Make sure you don’t eat them all at once though, might give you a tummy ache!

Happy Easter Everyone!!!

Lots and lots of fairy love from

Easter Bunny gives recipe for Hot Cross Buns!

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

Yes boys and girls, you heard it right! The one and only Easter Bunny gave our very own Fairy Princess Buttons the “very special, very secret, very delicious” (I was quoting the Easter Bunny there) recipe for the Hot Cross Buns he and his mother eat over the Easter period.  Buttons came running to me this very morning, jumping with excitement, telling me all about her visit from the Bunny and how he had imparted the magical gift of his special recipe. She asked me if I could put it up in our blog, so that you can all practise a little before Easter, and maybe make some buns to leave out for the Easter Bunny when he comes to hide some eggs at your house!


Are you ready? Here it is!
INGREDIENTS:
750g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
250g currants*
300ml milk
3 eggs, beaten
1 egg, beaten, for glazing
2 sachets dried yeast
2 tablespoons mixed spice*
125g butter
100g brown sugar
Paste for crosses: 1/4 cup flour mixed with a little cold water
METHOD:
– Put the flour, yeast, salt, mixed spice and currents into a bowl and make a well in the centre.
– Melt the butter and add the milk together with the sugar. Warm to blood temperature the same as your fingers – yeast is very temperature sensitive.
– Pour the milk and butter mixture into the well and add the beaten eggs.
– Mix until a soft dough is formed.
– Turn out into a lightly floured board and knead until the dough is very elastic (about 15 minutes).
– Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl and allow to rise in a warm place for about 90 minutes until the dough has doubled in volume.
– Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
– Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead again for a few minutes.
– Divide the mixture into 12 pieces and form each one into a bun shape.
– Place onto a greased tray and leave for approximately 15 minutes until doubled in bulk.
– Mix together the flour and water for the crosses and pipe onto the buns.
– Brush with egg glaze.
– Bake for approximately 15 minutes and cool on a wire rack.
*Some cooks wanted these ingredients left out.
So, make, eat, and enjoy!!!

Fairy hugs,

The Fairy Queen
(well, Fairy Princess Buttons and The Easter Bunny really!)
XOXOXOXOXO
Oh, PS: Buttons told me that the Easter Bunny drank Green Tea with her! Fancy that!

The Easter Bunny & Fairy Floss!

Monday, April 6th, 2009

Hello Fairylings!

Well it has been a very busy start to the year! I have been busily assisting the Easter Bunny in getting ready for his deliveries! We have been making eggs of all different kinds. Some really big and some really small. There are yellow ones with red spots, blue with purple swirls, green with pink flowers and even orange with silver stars! So many different colours and lots of chocolatey goodness. Easter Bunny has been borrowing some of my many Fairy Floss flavours for them and he has been helping me to make little Easter baskets for my Fairy friends.

I have made an Easter basket full of chocolate and mango dust eggs for the Fairy Queen, some Turkish Delight eggs for Fairy Lah, Toffee Honeycomb for Stardust, Rose Petals & Cream for Rosebud and some for me – Choc Pumpkin! And so many more for all the other Fairies. I am going to have Easter Bunny deliver them for me – I will have to make sure to tell the Fairies to leave their bonnets on the end of their beds so he has some where to put them.

We fairies like to help where ever we can – it is fun and nice to help your friends. I know that Crystal has arranged for Easter Bunny to borrow a Pegasus again – though I am not sure which one? Stardust and Twinkle are making certain the sky will be nice and bright with the stars all clean and shiny so he can see clearly on his way – hopefully Raine will not be experimenting that night! I will need to run and speak to Rainbow and get some more beautiful rainbow coloured paints for the eggs. We have so many to do and not much time, I think I will see if Petal can come and help after she has finished tending to her garden.

Did you know that the Fairy Queen is organising a Fairyland Easter Egg Hunt? It will be in the beautiful gardens of the Crystal Castle and we are all invited – I am so excited I am very clever at finding them! But the Fairy Queen is very sneaky and won’t give us any clues – she has been busy planning it all and won’t tell any body any thing – it makes it so much more exciting. Each fairy has to make her own basket with her name on it. Mine is woven fairy strings that I got from Sparkles – and they are all silver and shimmery. I have a handle covered in cherry blossoms which of course I got from Blossom.

Now make sure you all remember to leave out your Easter Bonnets so that Easter Bunny has somewhere to put your eggs – and be careful – sometimes he can be tricky and hide them in the garden!

Well wish me luck on the hunt and I hope you all get lot’s of Easter eggs!

Fairy Roses for Christmastime!

Friday, December 12th, 2008

Hello little Fairykins!

Christmas is just around the corner and I’m so excited! My special Christmas roses are helping me make a lovely carol for our Fairyland Christmas party – all the birds, animals and flowers will sing for the other fairies. Fairy Princess Fairy Floss is making gingerbread and candy cane flavoured fairy floss and it’s just scrumdiddliumptious! Fairy Princesses Rainbow, Butterfly and Sparkles have been decorating the Christmas tree at Crystal Castle and it looks just magical!

I’ve got some fabulous shoes for our Christmas party. They are pink and sparkly and with each step I take they play music – such fun! The silkworms that live at the bottom of the garden are spinning silk for my dress – so nice of them! I’ve been very busy wrapping presents for all the fairies and my animal friends. Cinnamon the rabbit and I have just been talking and we think the nicest thing about Christmas is all the lovely smiles. Make sure you give lots of smiles away this Christmas – it makes a fairy feel tickled pink!

Well must go sweet peas – Fairy Princess Stardust and I are giving a concert for Santa’s elves – they’ve been working so hard we’d thought they’d like a little music.


Lots of Love,

Fairy Princess Rosebud

PEGASUS CHRISTMAS ANTICS!

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

Pegasus1

Greetings fellow fairy friends

HAPPY HO HO HOLIDAYS!

The pegasii have decided that its far more exciting to watch the reindeer train for their big flight on christmas eve night, so they haven’t been practising as much as they should for the Christmas night spectacular… and for some reason they have all painted their noses red… mmm I wonder what that is all about (tee hee hee).

I am very excited about our christmas party this year as Fairy Princess Rosebud has a special surprise for us all. I can hardly wait! I shall be wearing the most loveliest gown designed by Fairy Princess Sparkles. It is covered in sparkles and swirls and has the most delicate tiny little presents anyone has ever seen stuck all over it! Can you keep a secret? I hope so, because at the end of the christmas party everyone gets to choose a present from my dress! Ooo I wonder what I should put inside each giftbox. Maybe you can help me. Think a thought and then wish really hard and I just know it will come true and then each of the fairies in fairyland will love the gift from you!!!

Well it seems poor Santa now has three pegasii trying to pull his practise sleigh! I’d best flutter off and get my pega-deer back (tee hee hee)!

Sweet wishes,

Fairy Princess Crystal

Christmas Fairy Floss!

Friday, December 5th, 2008

Hello my little Fairylings,

Well as you know it is busy, busy, busy in Fairyland especially at this time of year – there is so much to do! I am making all the Fairy Floss (in assorted flavours) for the Crystal Castle Christmas Party and there are so many different types! I have to make over 100 different batches!

I am making little bunches of Fairy Floss clouds for each of the Fairies for Christmas – I got some beautiful crystal ribbons from Fairy Princess Crystal and some magical floating dust from Fairy Princess Stardust. I also have to make a special giant cloud for the Fairy Queen – in her favourite flavour; lemon gelato with watermelon sprinkles!

I have also found the most perfect dress thanks to Fairy Raine and Fairy Princess Rainbow! It is made from the most delicate little rain droplets resting on tiny little rainbows which makes it reflect so many beautiful colours! For shoes, since green is my favourite colour, Fairy Princess Jade whipped up some gorgeous jade shoes that match the green in the rainbows perfectly!

Oh it is such an exciting time – do you know that more that getting presents – I love giving them? My favourite present to give is a hug – everybody loves hugs and everybody needs hugs! So make sure you help Santa spread Christmas cheer by giving someone a hug and saying Merry Christmas!!

Well I must rush Dewdrops, I have lots to do and only so many hands to do it with – and OH NO! Thumper my beautiful fluffy pet bunny has gotten into the Fairy Floss maker – he is all sticky! Now I really have to go – he needs a bath *laughing*.

Merry Christmas Fairylings!

Love and bear hugs!

Fairies prepare for Christmas in Fairyland

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008

Hellooooo Fairy Friends,

Well my oh my it has been such a fairy busy month here in Fairyland.. As you would know its that time of year again where the wonderful Santa Claus comes to visit everyone and leave special presents behind. Ooooh I cannot wait. Us fairies love christmas, it’s so great to be spending time with everyone you love and the best thing is all the presents!! We are preparing for our HUGE christmas party here in Fairyland. Fairy Princess Rosebud has been running around madly making sure the lovely rose gardens in Fairyland are all ready to sing their petals out for us at the party – they are such great entertainers and she is very proud of them.

I’ve already picked out my fairy dress for the party – Fairy Princess Bluebell helped me choose it too, she has the best fashion sense in Fairyland (even better than the Fairy Queen, but shhh, don’t tell her I said that!) I now have a pretty blue and pink dress that is just wonderful, and Fairy Princess Seashell bought me some lovely starfish jewels to sew around the bottom of the skirt, just to add that special Seashell touch! Luckily, Fairy Raine helped me put them on otherwise I would have been soooo lost. She reminds me so much of Fairy Godmother… *giggles*

I cannot wait to see what the other Fairies are preparing for the party – it’s such an exciting event! I’ve prepared a little surprise for all the fairies here – but I can’t tell you what it is… yet…


I’ll see you around, Fairy friends!

Lots of love and fairy kisses,

Fairy Princess Blossom

I declare the 351st Fairy Festival over!

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008
Hello lovely Fairy Friends!

Well, well, what a fabulous Fairy Festival we had. It tired me out soooo much, it’s taken me a week to get enough energy back to be able to write all about it! (Plus, I’ve had to clean up lots after the party!)

So let me tell you all about it. The afternoon of the festival was a very busy one. Crystal, Blossom, and I ran around putting all the finishing touches on the decorations. Stardust’s Pixie orchestra arrived as we were threading the pink tulle around the chairs, and one of the pixies (Lulu I think her name was) got her wings stuck in a bit of the tulle, but JubJub the elf helped her out of it. We watched Fairy Floss bring out all her goodies – she must have been in her fairy kitchen for a week preparing the feast! I couldn’t resist sneaking a little of the Pistachio fairy floss – and oh boy was it good! I brought out the Sunshine Smarties and Blossom just went crazy (she loves them) and I had to stop her from diving into the big bowl and rolling all around in them! Fairy Raine bought along her grandmothers Cloud Juice, and she handed a crystal teacup to each of us to try – just to make sure she had added enough pearl dust. We all agreed it was the BEST Cloud Juice we had ever tasted.

Petal arrived with the fireflies – it was their job to light the stage during her dance routine and she got them all organised. Seashell bought Mermaid Takumi along to introduce to us – so she would know everyone by the time the festival began. I tested Rainbow’s Fairy Fizz Bomzles and they seemed like they were going to work very well indeed, but it was still daylight and so I couldn’t see what colours they were going to be – you really need to test bomlzes against the night sky to see the colours, but I just didn’t have time the night before.

It seemed like everything was pretty much ready – so I went back to Crystal Castle to have a dewdrop bubble bath and get ready for the big night ahead. I got dressed in my gown that I had made especially for the festival (oh who am I kidding, we Fairies get a new gown made for each and every event in Fairyland!). My gown was made from duckdown – that’s the soft part underneath the feathers from white ducks. All the ducks in Fairyland had been collecting down for me for the whole month and so we had lots and lots to make my dress with. It was the softest, most delicate dress I think I have ever worn, and it was a little fluffy as well! Once or twice during the night, a duckdown feather would float out of my dress, and would generally land somewhere near my nose and tickle me so I would sneeze. All the fairies thought this was funny as when I did sneeze, more feathers would fly out of my dress and make me sneeze even more. Maybe a dress from duckdown wasn’t the best idea (I sneezed LOTS) but at least I was warm and cosy as the night ended up quite cool.

So, the festival itself – let me tell you, I think it was the very best May Day Festival of Fairies that I have ever been to (well, in the last 400 years at least!). Stardust’s pixie orchestra played all our favourite tunes and we were amazed at how wonderfully she had trained the night stars to perform in time with her music. They jumped this way and that, and every now and then, one would go shooting far off into the night sky. Maybe you saw some of this if you were out looking at the stars that night, it can be hard to miss a shooting star as they go whizzing past. (Stardust tells me you should always wish on a shooting star as they generally grab the wish as they fly past). Rainbow set off her Fairy Fizz Bomzles then, and oh my, the colours were spectacular! There was sunshine yellow, rocket red, hot pink (just for Petal and Blossom), perfect purple, bright blue and of course, our favourite multi-coloured rainbow bomzle at the end. Fairy Princess Sparkles jumped a little when it started – something about an incident the year before, but I wasn’t entirely sure what that was all about. She appeared to enjoy the display though and I heard her afterwards telling Rainbow how great it all was. Next on the program was the African Fairies Traditional Tribal Flight – it was truly amazing. They formation flew and created all different African animals in the sky. I saw a giraffe, an elephant, a cheetah and my most favourite was when they formed the shape of a wildebeest. Just amazing work! Stardust’s orchestra played tribal drum beats throughout their display and it created the most wonderful atmosphere.

Next came Seashell’s mermaids singing “Shimmer Shimmer Ocean Glimmer” with Mermaid Takumi doing a special duet harmony with Seashell. They sounded incredible, their voices really did give us happy goosebumps, just like Seashell said they would! Mermaid Takumi was very impressed with Fairy Floss’s sushi as well – I heard her asking Floss for her recipe a little later in the night (way to go Flossy!). Next came Petal’s dance routine. Just as it started, all the tulips, snapdragons and bluebells opened up and the thousands of fireflies that Petal had organised earlier, flew out and lit the stage as bright as Rainbow’s brightest bomzle! Petal led all the Fairy Princesses of Crystal Castle in a dance called “I’m Bringing Fairy Back”. I haven’t seen such a funky dance routine since Petal did her “Summer Flight” for the Fairies of Timberlake Lodge back in August of 2004. I was so proud of my Fairy Princesses. It was obvious that they all put a lot of time and effort into the routine and I heard the LA Fairies talking about some form of movie offer…. fingers crossed for them all.

We all had a bit of a dance then, and more of Fairy Floss’s delicious food. Crystal spilled one of the Flower Kebabs down the front of her snowflake dress and the icicles on it turned all different colours. She quicly raced off then saying she needed to get the finale ready anyway. About 10 minutes later, Stardust’s orchestra sounded their trumpets and we all turned to see what was happening. At just that moment, the Pegasuii from Crystal’s Starfleet Alliance Team burst into the sky. The zoomed in all directions, weaving in and out of each other. They got so close to one another and were so fast, we all gasped and I saw Snowflake put her hand over her eyes a few times. They flew down so low, that we could all feel the wind on our faces as they dashed past. The Alliance team formed a line and then wingtip to wingtip, dove one after the other as if they were diving into a swimming pool. They each zoomed down and then back up high again and did an enormous loop-the-loop, one after the other. Very daredevil I must say! Then, more of Rainbow’s bomzles as the pegasuii flew amongst them – and all of a sudden, Crystal appeared atop Pegasus Regali with an enormous torch fire in her hand which shot flames of multi coloured shooting stars across the night sky. As Crystal began to slowly twirl atop of Pegasus Regali her beautiful snow dress released tiny sparkly snow flakes that fell gently on top of all the Fairy folk. As each snow flake landed it exploded in to a tiny present for each of the Fairies and their friends to take home as a keepsake of their wonderous night. Finally Pegasus Regali flew past me and a tiny gold snowflake landed gently upon my head, leaving the most amazing Autumn Crown for me to wear. The Pegasus Alliance team zoomed through the night sky in a cloud of exploding Gold Bomzles and then disappeared into the dark night sky with the sounds of Fairy oohing and ahhing echoing far behind them. I then declared the night to be over and invited everyone back for a wonderous cup of marshmallow chocolate.

Such fabulous Fairy fun!

Talk to you all soon,
