Faeries Steal the Gold Braid

Trouble! Faeries create havoc in the garden!
This past summer, on Daughter of the Soil's blog, she wrote about faeries stealing the gold tread she marked certain plants with. I loved the image I imagined it to be, and finally got around to create it.

"We the Faeries, blithe and antic, Of dimentions not gigantic,
Though the moonshine mostly keep us, Oft in orchards frisk and peep us."
...Thomas Randolph

See how others have imagined trouble on Illustration Friday.

How beautiful these naughty fairies are. But one wonders now, what will be done with the golden cord.
