Here’s a test to find out which type of mythological creature you are! It’s just a bit of fun, but it also gives you a brief description of your ‘creature’ and a little bit of personality typing. Check it out! I am an elf apparently.

I came across this artist on my virtual travels the other day and really loved the work. the colours used and the textures Kim plays with are soft and inviting, which contradicts the subject matter to some extent. Even though the pictures are composed with an evanescent dreaminess, the characters and landscapes hint at a hidden world not readily apparent, and a subtle sense of danger, very like faeries themselves.

In Scotland, there are streams leading to waterfalls and several pools called The Fairy Pools. These magical pools are located in the south of the Isle of Skye, in a place called Glen Brittle. I have never been there, but the pictures and videos I’ve seen of the place look very serene and pastoral. And for all of the places for the ‘Fairy Pools’ to be… a place called the Isle of Skye seems pretty appropriate.
Here is a walking guide if ever you happen to be in the area http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/skye/fairypools.shtml
In the video below, the reporter states that there are Rowan trees surrounding the area, which is a tree sometimes used for protection. She also states that selkies may be associated with the area, but she doesn’t go into any tale explaining why the place is called the Fairy Pools.
And here is a photo of the pools by photographer Julian Calverley, the picture is linked to his site.

I have been seeing a lot of these flowers around lately, and I don’t know about you, but to me they look like little faeries in disguise. They’re called Fuchsias and they are apparently a very old plant the was ‘discovered’ by a missionary in circa the 17th century in the Dominican Republic. There are many different types, and I’m not exactly sure which kind these are, but you can read up on the history of the species here.

I was at a cottage recently and what should I find but a fairy door! I quietly snuck up to it and snapped this picture. Hopefully they didn’t notice!!
