The Book Fairy

The working title for this project was The Book Project so I could talk about it but not give anything away. Now that it is finished and I have photos to share, I can very well call it by its proper name. That would be The Book Fairy.

Let me introduce you to The Book Fairy herself. Here she is in her element – deeply engrossed in a book on butterflies.

If you’ll notice, the books in her world are quite magical as the subject matter often jumps right off the page!

Now she has turned her attention to a book on dinosaurs and in so doing we get a glimpse of her wings.

They are paper wings befitting a book fairy that are snippets of pages from a book.


The book room is filled top to bottom with books. They are stacked on the floor, on the shelves and leaning against the walls.


Speaking of walls, as you can see, the walls are covered in pages from books.


It’s like an itty bitty library. Where is this library?  Where else would a fairy find one except in a set of books?

The very same books that are on the second shelf from the top. How did she do that?!

The book fairy reads as much as she can and often into the wee hours of the night.

That’s why there’s a light that casts the whole room in a cozy glow.

Let’s leave her to her reading, shall we?
