Flower Fairy Handbag Tin - The Columbine 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.
Who shall the chosen fairy be
For letter C?
There’s Candytuft, and Cornflower blue,
Campanula and Crocus too,
Chrysanthemum so bold and fine,
And pretty dancing Columbine.
Yes, Columbine! The choice is she;
And with her, see,
An elfin piper, piping sweet
A little tune for those light feet.
That dance among the leaves and flowers
In someone’s garden.
(Is it ours?)
