a sorta bloggish spot
||It is very cool to see some progress at the Peaceable Kingdom! I should stop calling it the "annex", it seems to be more of a warehouse.
Of course, with the good, often comes the "less good". This morning I found that the stoop on The Ark's Fairy door was broken off.
||I'm thinking that it would be a good idea to add a search function to this site since it has become such a labrynth of stuff!
I think the galleries could stand some updating as well... perhaps some sort of "slide show" or thumbnail/rollovers.... hmmm
||The Ark urban-fairy ticket window ha sbeen fixed (again)...though still no new tickets....yet. The broken stop of the fairy door there has also been repaired.
And there is a bit more progress of the urban-fairy storeroom in The Peaceable Kingdom.
It is always nice to get see see the fairy finders! I happened to be waiting to meet someone at Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea and a group of moms and kids came in to find the fairy door here. They were pretty excited!
