I received a lovely gift from my dear blogging friend, Samantha Murdoch

It was a lovely letter, a bunch of crystals (amethyst, rose quartz, red jasper, obsidian, carnelian, jade and of course a Bloodstone, as Sam said in her letter, ‘ the piece as featured on the spine of your novel,’ plus two cute cat napkins! Such a wonderful gift.

So, of course what better way to thank her than to write a Tanka!

 

For gather I shall use collect,  and kind for soft.

This is my new kitchen display cabinet, so I thought I’d photograph these pretty assorted fairies under the spotlight, in the new, clean dustless shelf! A perfect spot to show off their prettiness. The top shelf has a little ornamental container with houses my crystals. I love crystals so it’s not surprising that they feature in my writing! More about that to come, I will be looking for beta readers for my novel so keep a look out for posts.

You can see the individual china angels and my crystals in close up on my Instagram account: https://instagram.com/kyrosmagica/

Hope you enjoy the fairies. These were a gift from my mother, a collection that she gave to my daughters. Now that they are older and have lost interest in them, I keep them as a keepsake, a reminder of them being little. Perhaps one day when they are older, past their teenage years they will appreciate them again!

Bye for now,
