La Esencia de Titania

Resa has created an art dress using fairies as inspiration, but it takes fashion to a higher plane. It makes a statement about how connected people and magic are to nature. Its fall colors should clash with the soft pink of the gown, but instead they provide a beautiful backdrop, making the wearer shine. Like van Gogh’s use of color contrast to hold light, it’s as if she created light itself with nap, stitches and fabric. I hope you’ll drop by her site to let her know how wonderful her art is. Have a magical night!

Art Gowns

Did you ever think to yourself,  I’d like to meet an Art Gown fairy?

She would look like the sun shining on rippling pink water and her tail would be made from the forest’s leaves.

Her wings would fold behind her, in many wonderful different ways.

Well, you’ve come to the right place. We make fairies here. This may be the first fairy, but it will not be the last.

And who better to dedicate the first fairy Art Gown to than Brenda Davis Harsham from Friendly Fairy Tales.

Okay, a few notes on the making of La Esencia de Titania

It began with leftovers from “O Royal Treasure”. As I was cutting the circles out of  white voile to make her flowers, I noticed the long scraps were fairy airy and romantic feeling.

Shimmering pink stretch cut velvet was…

Visit Aquileana’s dog mythology post for my epic poem about a fairy tale dog. Woo-hoo and thanks, Aquileana, for publishing my poem, Laelaps, Hound of Magic!

Mythology: “Dogs in Several Myths”🐕:

“Collaboration with Brenda Davis Harsham💫”

Artemis & Dog. Roman copy of the 1st cent. CE after a Greek original, 4th cent. BCE. Rome, Vatican Museums.



The dog is the first domesticated animal, and is symbolically associated with loyalty and vigilance, often acting as guardian and protector. Dogs are portrayed as guides and companions, hence the notion of “man’s best friend.”

Dogs almost always appear in a positive light. Native American legends generally portray the dog as the symbol of friendship and loyalty. The Joshua Athapascans believe that dogs were the first beings made by their creator-figure, Xowala’ci. The Jicarilla Apache, on the other hand, tell the story of God Black Hactcin, who first created a dog and then made man as a companion for the dog.

Ocean Magic

A taste of blue sea magic from Wanderlust should make your blood pressure drop, your happiness quotient rise and your sense of well-being double. Have a great week ahead and lots of magic, Brenda


From the moment I lay eyes on it…


Until the the moment I leave.


The ocean always works its magic.


With its vast and endless horizon

With its gentle and soothing rhythms


With its tumultuous wildness


With its healing serenity


With its ancient wisdom

And its magnificent grandeur


The allure of the ocean has no boundaries.

Its magic is there for everyone…


to experience, to feel, to embrace.

Our Connections

I love the way this poem makes me feel, right through. I feel happier, energized and more creative. I hope you feel that way, too! Peace, Brenda

Source of Inspiration

Sometimes when I
look at the sky
I see the ocean
connected by air
sun and moon
star fish waving
to sister stars
clouds dipping to
caress white tops
then I know
without putting
into words
just know
such bliss
