Flower Fairy Handbag Tin - The Apple Blossom Fairy
Keep miniature treasures safe inside the sweet Flower Fairy tin bags. Measuring 7 x 6 x 3.5cm, these tiny yet delightful cases feature Cicely Mary Barker's famous illustrations.
Since their first publication in 1923, Flower Fairies have enchanted both adults and children alike, with Cicely's botanically accurate drawings appealing to our innate sense of magic and wonder.
Flower Fairies make their homes high and low; in the treetops, in marshes, on the forest floor and in the garden. Wherever and whenever a seed sprouts, a Flower Fairy baby is born. Each Flower Fairy lives and sleeps in their chosen flower, plant or tree, and as this grows, the fairy grows too.
Up in the tree we see you, blossom-babies,
All pink and white;
We think there must be fairies to protect you
From frost and blight,
Until, some windy day, in drifts of petals,
You take your flight.
You’ll fly away! But if we wait with patience,
Some day we’ll find
Here, in your place, full-grown and ripe, the apples
You left behind –
A goodly gift indeed, from blossom-babies
