What could be more whimsical than Fairies?

Ever wonder what your name would be if you were to suddenly find yourself transformed into a fairy by an evil troll who wanted to eat you for lunch?  No, well me neither actually but just in case that ever does happen to you, you can get your very own fairy name here.

What’s my name… well its, umm, well its

Your fairy is called Hex Goblinweb
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in places hexed and tainted by black magic.
She is only seen in the mist of an early morning.
She wears black feathers and rose petals. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.

Oh and if I did suddenly become a fairy and needed a place to live – it would most certainly be here…

Terrariums.

Mini Painter in Terrarium

For those who know me, they know I have a fascination with terrariums.  Well today on Design* Sponge they did a cool terrarium round-up with a link to a great article in the New York Times about the terrarium’s comeback.  What could be more whimsical that the mini-est of miniature people painting a landscape upon a bed of moss? You can read the New York Times article and slide show here, the design*sponge round-up here, and view a how to video below if you want to make one of your own.

Enjoy!
