I dream of Faeries

The last few days I've been re-reading my favorite play A Midsummer Night's Dream for Shakespeare Camp (class). This play is my favorite because of the faeries. I love them! I got a faerie tattoo before I even finished high school. You don't get a tattoo unless you absolutely love it, that might give you an idea of how much I love these beautiful creatures.

Back to Shakespeare, I fell asleep reading yesterday and the day before and both times drem't of faeries. Wednesday was awesome. I hung out with Titania in a canopy of lilacs, but yesterday.... I woke up from my dream because Peaseblossom was choking me to death! What the heck! There is no moral to this story except don't do whatever I did to Peaseblossom because it might hurt someone's feelings enough that you might die! Haha but really...

A few of my favorite faerie books are
Lady Coddington's Pressed Faerie Book by Terry Jones and Brian Froud

Good Faeries, Bad Faeries by Brian Froud

Faeries by Brian Froud

I own the last 2, but I have yet to get my hands on the Lady Coddington book. If you ever get to peek into the last one, you might find the faerie that inspired my first tattoo!

Also, check out my faerie treasury on Etsy and the next time you're out for a walk, mind the faerie circles!
