My Fairy In A Jar

I first saw this beautiful piece of art on a blogger friends site, "Feathered Nest". I was very much touched by it's tenderness. You see, some 31 years ago my little 4 month old daughter died, after the battle of a life time. When I look at this young fairy in this bottle I can't help but see my little girl at about 2 years of age.

She sits at eye level on a shelf in front of me and my computer. She will inspire me as I go back 31 years to a time and place, that I now know, was one of the greatest experiences of my life.

You are welcome to follow along as I tell her story. Please join my followers, so I'll know your there. I'm sure I will be inspired to have special little drawings.


  1. how aweful!
    I never had children but I can imagine how you must have been feeling and still feeling!
    can you ever be really happy again?
    tears in my eyes for you!

  2. I'm anxious to read the next chapter!! Keep up the good work.
