Thanksgiving and Ruby Slippers...

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends...

Although I don't actually celebrate this holiday, I do have a lot to be thankful for, especially at the moment with all the ups and downs that have been going on.

Today, my little princess stayed at home (she had a terrible cough through the night but seemed to make a miraculous recovery this morning) so we decided to get some fresh air and have a little walk around where we live.

After a little exploring of the local playground, she suggested that we 'go look for faries in the trees', so that's just what we did.  
We are so lucky to have a little woodland area right where we live, and although it's right next to a motorway (freeway), it actually feels a million miles away from everywhere.

The trees were a little bit bare, and the path was quite muddy, but it was just great to get outside.

love the fallen leaves...
natures own fabulous carpet.

(for those of you who are a little into nature, you might like to know that the leaves are mainly English Oak and a variety of Maple)

Follow me to the fairy houses...

We didn't actually see any fairys, but my little Miss did point out lots of possible hiding places.  
Oh the joys of being 3 years old.

If you are wondering where the Ruby Slippers fit into all this, well they are the little shoes that I made for the angel.
Take a look...

the glue is still wet here but you get the idea.

for the rest of the day I'm going to get working on the second little figure
 (thanks Kirsten for your suggestions)
lets see tomorrow how it turns out.

Gobble, gobble (turkey talk)

The photo of your little Miss is beautiful. She looks as if she's heading off on a big adventure.
The red shoes are perfect for the art doll.
