The Fairy Box charity

The Fairy Box charity exists to help support ill children in hospital,their families, and the medical and nursing staff involved in their care.

At the heart of the charity’s work is the Fairy Box itself – a themed gift box which sits on the children’s wards and which is filled with small gifts of books, toys, and games - lovingly donated - so that parents, medical and nursing staff caring for ill children can have access to a gift to help dry the tears of a child who is feeling sad or blue in hospital – and so help them on the road to recovery. Medical and nursing staff are increasingly supportive of using the Fairy Box to help dry tears when a child has had to undergo a difficult or upsetting treatment.

When so many specialist services for seriously ill children are centralised in centres – sometimes many miles from home - it is not always possible for parents to have the means, time or access, to find a gift for their child to help them through a difficult period, especially when they may be on duty by their child’s bedside, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.

Fairy Box is inspired by the real-life story of how the ancient world of fairy found modern expression through a new world called the “internet” and, in so doing, helped to lift the spirits of a seriously ill child - over and over again - giving her new strength to endure another day of hospital treatment and so making that day a day closer to going home.

For some, believing in fairies may seem far away from the reality of childhood cancer, but for one seriously ill child, believing in fairies became a lifeline throughout long spells in hospital. Eleven-year-old Aimee Butler endured countless rounds of painful and exhausting cancer treatments, worrying infections and setbacks, as she lives with leukaemia.

Since coming into her life three years ago fairy artists and fairy enthusiasts who connected with her through the internet have brought new friends and companionship from all corners of the world who steadfastly and regularly support her.

Many fairy artists have been inspired by Aimee to create new works named after her or showing her fairy light. An especially stunning tribute was recently gifted to Aimee by the very talented UK fantasy artist Josephine Wall. This new work, entitled “Fairy Lights”, for Aimee symbolises all of the fairy love and support which has surrounded her and continues to support her today. See Josephine's work:
From Aimee’s experience, the Fairy Box charity seeks to open an enchanting doorway to bring more of this special magic to so many more ill children in hospital.

Mermaid Themed Kitchen or Bathroom Decor Ideas

If you are like me, your kitchen is less than inspiring. I had an epiphany today about what to do with my bland kitchen. It is in the need for an update but like many other people, we have a limited budget. My love for mermaids and all things from the sea has brought me to this. In a perfect world I would love to paint my kitchen into an Underwater Mermaid World.
  • Mermaid Kitchen Ceiling: I think the ceiling would be cool painted as though I am on the ocean floor looking up to the waters surface above. The sunlight reflecting on the waves. Possibly a surfer going by on his surfboard.
  • Mermaid Kitchen Backsplash: My tiled backsplash would be sponge painted over with muted greens and blues. I would then go over it with a colored foil treatment to add sparkle and shine.
  • Mermaid Kitchen Counter: My counter top is a white printed formica (from the 70's). I would probaly paint it to look like a sandy destination, more natural (nothing solid). Now if I wanted to completely change out the counter top I might choose a light stained concrete with bits of sand or river rocks to have a more natural feel.
  • Mermaid Kitchen Lighting: Now this is the easy part... I envision a white sea shell encrusted chandalier above my dining area. Maybe I would drape foe seaweed from them as well (remember we are in an underwater world). The other lighting can be altered with sea shells and such also. Don't forget about under counter lighting... what about green or blue? Looking for a Mermaid Themed Nightlight? These are cool if you are looking for something unique.

  • Mermaid Kitchen Cabinets: I would probaly paint them in different hues of greens and blues. I think a mermaid or two would look awesome painted on them as well with a few under sea creatures to keep them company. Maybe a few sea turtles could keep them company. Dont' forget about the cabinets hardware... I have seen pewter sea shell knobs and drawer handles. They look like different sea shell types and starfish. Very Cool!

  • Mermaid Kitchen Wall Art: What mermaid world we be complete without the star of the show... more mermaids! I have seen mermaids sitting in wine glasses and lots of other great mermaid pictures to use for this room. My favorites are by David Delamare and Jade Bengco.

  • Mermaid Decor: Of course you would want lots of seashells, coral, fishnets, anything beachy. I suggest displaying a starfish or two in your window sill and placing lots of shells in glass bowls to further this natural beach theme.

  • Mermaid Bathroom: Here is a link for some great looking toilet handles with a nautical flair. They have mermaids, dolphins, lighthouses and etc...

  • Beach Cottage Dishes: Here is a link for some great looking sea shell and nautical dishes.

Laini's Ladies Decoupage Fairies

Laini Taylor
Portland artist Laini Taylor created a wonderful hand made line of home decor ornaments called Lamp Ladies. "I first started calling these whimsical ornaments Lamp ladies because I liked hanging them from my desk lamp for inspiration while I worked on my art and writing?, says Laini, "but they can bring whimsy to any number of places, not just lamps!"

Laini's Garden Stakes feature her charming Garden Ladies printed in full color, front and back, on durable metal. All have a garden-related quote and feature bells, beads and added elements. The ladies are attached to green stakes, with a double forked end for stability. They are 24" total in height, with the ladies approximately 9". "Weeds" quote - "Make no mistake. The weeds will win. Nature always bats last." -Robert M. Pyle.

Laini's Ladies will flutter their way into your hearts with inspiration for hither and thither. From the tops of their heads to the tips of their toes, they are adorned with sparkling beads, wire and ribbon. This full line of everyday adornments, magnets, beveled pads and greeting cards will put the magic back in your day.

"I first started calling these whimsical ornaments "Lamp Ladies" because I liked hanging them from my desk lamp for inspiration while I worked on my art and writing" says artist Laini Taylor, "But they can bring whimsy to any number of places, not just lamps!".

Demand soon outnumbered supply for these popular little creations and the rest is history.

Laini's Ladies adornments are printed on a heavy cardstock and then coated with a thick, clear lacquer for a deep jewel-like finish. These decoupage style adornments feature inspiring quotes with the collage-style art. They are approximately 9" high, and are printed on the front and back.
