One of the reasons I believe in Faeries..... [Feb. 10th, 2004|09:22 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
....is because one day I found PROOF!

This is 100% true, and Matt will vouch for me.

At our last home I had a Toad House (kind of like an upside-down flower pot type thing, with a tiny doorway and chimney - frogs and toads take shelter in their shade) by my back door. Every day I would go look for toads and frogs. One day, the leaves and dirt were all moved around in front of it, which made me think maybe it had a visitor. I looked inside, and instead of a frog there was a tiny, tiny little shoe!! A strange little green rubbery boot. Too small to even fit a Barbie Doll. I can only assume it belonged to some sort of faery-folk.

Re:

I swear! Matt saw the whole thing.

I picked it up, and looked at it! It was very flexible, and dark green. I put it back, because it wasn't mine, lol - I figured that whoever's shoe it was, they might be missing it. The next day it was gone!

On another note, I would really love a Toad House :( I need to move to a climate that has froggies, lol. This is not fair. I never see frogs! SOMETIMES near this little pond where I grew up, but that is rare :( It makes me sad...... The energy around here is not very nature friendly :P

lol-you have just given me the greatest idea as a gift for bradley for his birthday or such...a toad house..he LOVES animals...he wants to have a nice little pet store with neat animals..he is so funny.

That is coolio about the shoes...what ended up happening to them did you leave them over night and then they disappeared???

how neat!! :D there's a hollow down by the creek where my parents live...right beside the creek there was a poplar tree. at the very bottom of the tree trunk was what appeared to be two small doors and there was an actual path that led from the larger door down to the creek. the path stayed cleared, too...and well-worn like something was using it. we decided that it housed a gnome. :)

Re:

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm moving, lol. That is it! I have never had an experience like this. Although when I was little, my mom said I used to sit out in our garden playing with what she saw was nothing, lol. Maybe that is why I paint flower faeries, lol. Bc of those experiences :)

Frog house!!!

Oh I've never heard of a frog house! How neat! I've always wanted a bat garden but I just moved into an apartment. :( I don't think my dad would be too pleased if I built one at his place but a frog house sounds REALLY COOL. So where can I get them and do you know if they make any big enough for bullfrogs? 'Cus that's all I got around here is bullfrogs.

Re: Yes!

I have this movie on VHS, or had, I may have given it to my sister. It was a cute movie. I don't want to give anything away but there is one particular faery that I loved.

I think that might be the case!!!!!

Oh - that is very interesting! I saw a UK documentary that talked about Fairy Trees - it was called "The Fairy Faith" - very neat film!
