The Transforming Enchantment of Motherhood

"My Mother",  The Illustrated Fairy Gazette
"The transforming enchantment of motherhood is amazing. A pleasure loving, frivolous young fairy becomes a responsible devoted mother in the instant that her first babe is placed in her arms. She will nurture the infant within the loving shelter of her wings. She will teach the very first spell that every fairy learns from it's mother."
Eritha, editor of "The Illustrated Fairy Gazette" 

" Despite their modesty and desire for anonymity Fairy Godmothers are now legendary among mortals, first told and then written of  in what they call "Fairy Tales".
Princess Daisy. The Illustrated Fairy Gazette

Who do fairies turn to for the very best in fairy pet care?  It is Dr. Flora Fauna, DFVM (Doctor of Fairy Veterinary Medicine): "Lover of all creatures great and small, Dr. Flora has a kind word, a gentle hand and a magic herbal potion for any sick animal."© Avril Tyrrell 2007

A Few Words about the Fairy Gazettes

 
What are the Illustrated Fairy Gazettes? Only the best-loved magazines in all the Fairy Realms. These small fairy-to-fairy publications contain articles, illustrations and advertisement of interest to fairies. Each is hand-stitched with rainbow thread and comes in a translucent envelope. To date there are five editions.

We truly do not know why we have been privileged to receive the little fairy magazines presented here. We are not at liberty to tell you how they came to be in our possession. We understand it to be a matter of fairy trust, that we are trusted to bring them to your attention.

The fairies know so much more about us than we know about them. Perhaps this is their way of letting us have a glimpse, in our troubled times, of enchanted places that do still exist. And more, letting us know that in these enchanted places the fairy virtues of Goodness, Truth and Beauty still prevail.
