Norman Rockwell use to say that he didn't paint the world the way it was, but he painted it the way it should be. Well today I came across this article of some girls who made the world a little more like it should be. I was so touched by their simple act of kindness, I had to post it.

I was talking to a friend of mine about one of the stories I'm currently working on, with a haunted doll as part of the plot, and she showed me this commercial for USPS. I could not stop laughing. Clowns have alway given me the willies. This was just too good not to share!

Every year our library puts on a big program called the Fairy Tea. This year there were four teas, each with 200 attendees. That makes 800 guests in all, most of them little girl ages three and up. The little girls dress up like fairies (wings, crown, the whole she-bang) and come to watch ballerinas perform and be introduced to the fairy court as they walk the runway and show off their fairy finery. The girls are always so cute! As part of the program, we librarians are required to dress up as well. I've been doing this for eight years now, so I've got quite a collection of fairy dresses hidden away in my closet by now. This year I wore a dress I sewed myself. (pictured above) I don't know how real fairies can move around freely with wings permantly attached to their back, because I kept hitting people in the head with mine whenever I tried to turn around.
The cream dress is my costume for the second day of Fairy Tea.
