Fairy Finders #5
Observing the Observers
(this is the 5th batch, clik to see the 1st or 2ndor 3rd or 4th or 6th )
I will try to get permission and post pictures I have taken of people finding the fairy doors.

I will also post photos which are sent to me if permission to do so is given.

The Trooping of the daisies!

About 9 daisies (a small bouquet) blew into Ann Arbor from Canton, MI
to tour the urban-fairy fairy doors....
September 10, 2010 was the trooping of the daisies.
I spotted the trooping of the daisies from my seat in Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea. It was a bummer that a truck drove by just then.
The Daisies rushed in to discover the fairy door and micro-brew fairy café within Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea. A short while later, after successfully completing the applications...there were 12 newly certified fairyologists.
Prior to witnessing the trooping of the daisies, I saw THIS sight at Peaceable Kingdom on Main Street. 12 fairy-daisies all in pots with a name on each. A coincidence???? I am not so sure.

Emma-Kay celebrated turning 3 by hunting fairy doors, cupcakes and the University of Michigan Marching Band

More on Emma-Kay's birthday...later.

Now, they were SUPPOSED to be hunting FAIRY doors! But here they are sitting directly in front of a Goblin Door!

I TRY to advise people that it is not wise to poke about goblin doors! Who knows what the goblins might get up to?! They have a habit of putting mischievous ideas in little boys' heads!

Luckily, I understand that their father is a marine, so there is no real danger.
Here is a photo and a message sent to me by Makayla.
