The Summer Solstice or Midsummer is the longest day of the year. By that I mean it is the instant in time when there are the most hours of LIGHT, and Night recedes into its smallest corner, beaten back by the sun.
It is maybe a time
of Illumination, a time of Celebration and the Fairies have advised me to
prepare for this event, with songs and dance, and special food. But no Midsummer
would be much of anything at all without a diadem, a mossy Crown to wear upon
the brow of the one who Dances in the Sunlight.
This tiny Fairie Diadem is an
example of that very thing. It is made of wire, woven with fibers, moss threads
and set with beads. Here it is pinned to a vintage crochet pin cushion, which is
HOw it will arrive for your Celebration.
The crown itself measures 2 inches
wide by 2.7 inches tall.
The pin cushion is 3.4 inches wide.
