Fairies at the Red Hill Fair

July 27th, 2010

It’s that time of year again and we’ll be doing our regular fun and games performance on the Red Hill Fair main stage this coming Saturday (31st July). We’re on stage at 11:45am, and there are some fabulous performers both before and after us. We’ll be up there singing and dancing and having lots of fun, and we’d love for you to come and play with us! We’ll also be walking around granting fairy wishes to all the kids enjoying the festival!

It’s a great day out for the whole family – aside from the fantastic fairies, there are rides, and animals, and stalls and food, and… well, all sorts of fun stuff!

Flossy’s Easter Bonnet

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

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

xxoo Blossom ooxx

Fairy Princess Rainbow returns home from her seaside vacation!

February 9th, 2010

Hello Fairy friends!

It is so great to be back home with all the Fairies in Fairyland. I had a wonderful year living by the sea. I lived in a cute little cottage overlooking the ocean. It was a beautiful view! I swam nearly every day but had to be careful my delicate wings didn’t get soaked.
I spent most of my time painting colourful pictures for my family and friends back in Fairyland. I used all the colours of the rainbow. One of my favourite experiences was when Fairy Princess Seashell visited me and took me to visit her underwater friends. I met beautiful mermaids, fish of all shapes and colours, and even a family of whales. They were so big and magnificent! I hope to go back and visit them all again soon but for now I’m glad to be home 🙂
Love and kisses!!

Easter Bunny gives recipe for Hot Cross Buns!

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!

Wedding in Fairyland

January 26th, 2010

Have you heard? Have you heard? Fairy Princess Miabelle and Sir Pixie Thomason got married! Miabelle is one of the most crafty bell makers here in Fairyland. She twists and curves the most amazing bells of all different shapes and sizes you could ever imagine. Thomason is our book keeper who lives down on the edge of Fantasy Forest. Thomason has EVERY book you could EVER dream of – everything from Harry Potter all the way to Thomas the Tank Engine (which is my favourite book).

Miabelle and Thomason shared such a magical day and were married – I was luckily enough to help Miabelle choose and collate all of her flowers for the bridal party. There were colours of every variety – the bright red rose, white and yellow lillies, purple daisies, bright blue and pink orchids – oh I could go on and on. It was such a magical wedding – butterflies flew through the crowd, Fairy Princess Rainbow made one of the most MAGNIFICENT rainbows I have ever seen – and Fairy Princess Sunset made sure that the skyline was filled with beautiful colours of orange and purple. But this is not the ONLY exciting news, oh no no no, my little fairy friends…..

The Fairy Queen has made a special announcement that Miabelle and Thomason have opened a new shop within Fairyland – oh this is so so so exciting – the name of the store – you will not believe this – it’s called ‘SUNSHINE WHISPERS’. It’s a brand new store filled with the MOST MAGICAL books you can ever imagine. I have heard that when you enter the store and pick up a book to start reading – you are taken to a magical little place of your own filled with sunshine, and the book reads to you in whispers. How amazing does this sound? Oooooh I am so fairy fairy excited – I must leave you now and run down there to try and get in!!!

Many kisses from Blossom

London Fairies!

November 12th, 2009

Hello friends and fairies!

Blossom here, signing in to say hello from the other side of the world in London. That’s right – after 228 years of full-time service amongst the beautiful clouds of Fairyland, I have decided to have a bit of a holiday and sprinkle my Fairy dust across other parts of the world. I’ve met some wonderful people along the way who are helping me feel very welcome here!! The most spectacular thing happened the other day when I was visiting Big Ben the clock tower – a tiny little yellow butterfly whispered in my ear that the sun is shining so brightly back in Australia that you’re all out and about playing in the sand on the beaches!! The butterfly said that the sun is shining soooo brightly because you’re all so happy and are sending those wishes up to Fairyland before you go to bed. I gave the butterfly a little kiss and she went on her way fluttering through the air. I hope you all keep wishing and sending them up to Fairyland as the fairies there hear them all the time and always try their hardest to make them come true.

Be happy and well Fairies!!!

Lots of fairy hugs and love,

~Blossom~

Camp Quality gets a visit from Fairy Princess Blossom

April 29th, 2009

Hey Hey Fairy Friends,

Well last weekend I attended a VERY special camp that is very near to my fairy heart. The camp I am talking about is Camp Quality. A camp where children who aren’t feeling very well attend and have a fabulous weekend full of games and activities. So I flittered on in to the fabulous mountains of Mt Tambourine. The views there are absolutely amazing and very pretty. I can see that all of our wildlife in Queensland have been looking after our trees and forest very well.

The Crystal Castle Fairies left a note for all the children attending Camp Quality saying that we would drop by this very day to laugh and smile and play all of their troubles away. Let me tell you, if you don’t think boys giggle, you are misguided. Three handsome little boys came and sat with me and giggled their heads off. “We’re the troublemakers because we giggle too much” they all told me.. I giggled too. They told me later on in the evening that they were holding a concert that night and they would all get to dress up.

There was so much to see and do at the camp and I wished I could have spent the whole night there. They had a jumping castle, a trampoline, and a heap of games to play. We played Duck Duck Goose for AGES and of course I was always chosen to be the goose, so I had to run lots and lots and lots and lots!

That night, when I got home I dreamt of their concert and saw them all dressed up! One was a Man in a Suit, another was an Army Officer and the other little boy was dressed as the Karate Kid – they told me that I could come as a Police Fairy and could just change from my Fairy clothing, and just keep changing roles because I’m magical. I might play dressups tomorrow night when I got home actually.

All of these beautiful children touched my heart deeply and I wish them all the sweetest dreams and magical days. They were all precious in their own ways and a little boy (Jai) who was about four years old, whispered in my ear to tell the Fairies back in Fairyland that he makes a wish upon a star every night and that he thinks they are all beautiful and he sees them in his dreams. So be sure to wish upon those stars and smile, because I hear they are contagious.

Lots of Fairy hugs and love to you all,

Fairy Princess Blossom

Fairy Pokey Biscuits – yes! Fairies cook by recipes too!

April 19th, 2009

My darling fairy friends, do I have a wonderful idea for you!

You know how much fun it is to dance the Fairy Pokey?! Well why not make some Fairy Pokey biscuits with Mummy or Daddy or Aunty or Uncle or Grandma or Grandpa? (phew!).

These biscuits are scrumdiddliumptious and very easy to bake. Cinnamon helped me make some today and all the fairies, unicorns, birds, animals and other creatures had them for afternoon tea. Then we spent the rest of the afternoon dancing the Fairy Pokey – what fun!

Here’s the recipe:

Fairy Pokey Biscuits

Makes 30

Ingredients:
125g butter, softened
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 1/2 cups plain flour

Method:
Preheat oven to 180?C (160?C Fan Forced). Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper.

Using an electric mixer, beat butter  and sugar until light and creamy. Place golden syrup and milk into a heatproof microwave-safe jug. Microwave for 20 to 30 seconds on HIGH (100%) power or until hot. Stir in bicarbonate of soda (mixture will bubble up). Get an adult to help you with this part!

Add warm milk mixture to butter mixture. Stir until well combined. Sift flour over batter. Mix well.

Roll 2 teaspoonfuls of mixture at a time into balls. Place onto prepared baking trays, allowing a little room for spreading. Gently press biscuits down with a floured fork. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden and firm (springy) to the touch. Stand on trays for 3 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

NB: If you don’t have a microwave you can heat the milk and golden syrup in a small saucepan on the stove. Also, remember that the biscuits will firm up more when cooled.

——————-

Baking is ever so much fun and you get to eat what you make at the end – yum! Also, I tell you what, Mum will be so grateful if you help clean up afterward. You get it done twice as fast then there’s much more time to dance the Fairy Pokey – yay!!

Lots of love (freshly baked)
