There have been times in the last few months that keys will go missing, or more recently the belt clip for my husband's phone disappeared. Even this last week they were causing problems around my house with a friend that had stayed here because we were gone for the week at County Fair. She ended up leaving some chocolate wine and the shenanigans stopped! (I've made a mental note to myself that we need to leave a peace offering for them when we know we're going to be gone for a few days.) Normally the faeries around my house are just quiet or mischievous. This was the first time that they've been naughty!

Myth and legend says that faeries are humanoid looking creatures, not necessarily with the tiny wings that we always seem to envision them with. I love how Brian Froud depicts the fae. They are not always beautiful, they are sometimes ugly but they are always honest and truthful, even if in a round about way! They are usually fond of music, drink, nature, and shiny things. They are so loved and believed in that societies have reports of seeing them regularly. In Ireland they are so believed in that roads were actually rerouted to avoid disturbing the faerie mounds!
