And thus, Fidelina, the beautiful fairy princess, her husband, Geoffrey the garden gnome and their wee son, Einahalk, rejoiced in the warm, reassuring glow of the twinkling Christmas lights.
The wee folks, such curios, magical beings, were in from the cold. The warmth of their well meaning radiating a sense of peace, of calm, within our living room from the days gone past. Memories captured from a previous Christmas time.
Such diversity. Their ethos, an ideal that embraces an all different, all equal world.
Ah yes, that Christmas past. That living room of the past and the magic that continues.
In the above photograph is Venetia, the sister of Fidelina, bridesmaid from, The Wee Folks Wedding. The enchanting wedding of Fidelina, the beautiful fairy princess and Geoffrey, the garden gnome. Standing beside her is the "best gnome", Teagan. There was a hint of romance between the two of them at the magic-filled wedding on the first day of summer, the 21st of June, 2010. Note the gnome in the background, Yrag, who is the best friend of Teagan.
Here be a happy little monkey. His great long arms wrapped over top of a couple of friendly garden gnomes. Nice tinsel effect. Happy little monkey.
A past magical moment, frozen in time. The wee folks rejoiced as one. Each unique snowdrop cast its glistening wonder upon the enchanted garden where they once doth lived.
Glowing lights. Glowing candles. Glowing fire. The wee folks sing songs of peace, of hope, of love.
They be gnomes, fairies and elves
They give of themselves
The wee folks
That sense of one
It has begun
Their little world
The new ideals
Lessons of peace
On the increase
That we must embrace
For the sake of the human race.
Lovely! I was waiting for the wee folk to appear to spread their wonderful message!ReplyDelete
Hope you, Tristan & Penny all enjoy a wonderful, peaceful & peace-filled Christmas season.
I'll be thinking of you all from across the pond, eh! :)
The wee folks thank you and I thank you. A message of hope and compassion from them and indeed, our furry friends :)
Here's to you and your loved ones having a peaceful, magical Christmas time, eh and jolly good!
Happy Holidays to you, the wee folks, and Penny!ReplyDelete
Good sir, we thank you. A peaceful holiday season to you.
You are so right, we cannot see the joy in little things like the wee folks do. Also what a nice message you have given us all, a message of Peace. May God bless you.ReplyDelete
I knew, dear lady, would understand their important message to us big folks. May Peace be a realisation and not some distant dream. United in a common cause, we can make it so.
Thank you, my thoughtful friend.
In peace and hope, your way,
Such a magical post! And there is Penny, sweet Penny :) I've been waiting for this post of the wee folks. The holiday season is just not the same without it! Peace and joy to all of you!ReplyDelete
Thank you and may the magic bring magic to our fragile planet. Penny is so content and the magic sparkles in her eyes :)
I like to believe that this yearly post from the wee folks continues to be a hopeful, peaceful tradition.
Bless you and enjoy the holiday season, my kind friend.
I've been waiting for the wee folk to wish us the best of the season......they seem so content (as does Penny) in their new home. May the peace and joy of the season find its way into your heart and give you strength in the coming new year. Merry Christmas Gary, Tristan, Penny and all the wee folk.ReplyDelete
Ah yes, it be that season when the wee folks pass on their important message to us big folks. The wee folks and Penny are adapting and enjoying their new adventure. I appreciate your supportive thoughts, Delores.
On behalf of the entire group here, a Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.
What a beautiful post Gary. I love that the wee folk have come out for the magical holiday season. <3 Penny!ReplyDelete
Your words are heartening, thank you :) Although usually very much in the background, they do indeed bring a special wish during this special time of the year.
Thank you, JoJo.
Peace on Earth would be a wonderful thing! Penny looks very happy.ReplyDelete
Hi Riot Kitty,Delete
It would be a wonderful ideal. Penny is a most contented dog and her love is an inspiration.
Thank you, kind friend.
Love the pictures and the poem.ReplyDelete
The wee folks, the lovable dog and myself, appreciate that. Thank you and peace be with you, good sir.
Thank the little folk and you for spreading the message we could all benefit from following.

A wonderful post with lovely magical photos - my favourites are the one with the fire, the last one (which I think would look good as a Christmas card) and of course the one with Penny.ReplyDelete
Wishing you, Tristan, Penny and the wee folks a happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year xx
That's most kind of you. Thank you for that and such compliments on the photos :)
And here's to you, your two dogs Sophie and Sugar and an assortment of cats, having a wonderful Christmas and a peaceful 2016.
Gary :) x
They have settled happily into their new home, all of them together. A good message for all of us.ReplyDelete
Truly amazing photos, Gary.
You and Penny have a Blessed Christmas. I know what you will be doing Christmas Day and that is such a blessing to others.
Indeed they have, good sir, indeed they have. I know the message of the wee folks and the unconditional, non-judgemental love shared by Penny, are lessons we can learn from.
Thank you and we hope you had a peaceful, positive Christmas. I was discreetly in the background trying to be there for those who wanted to chat :) And you knew that, my friend.

That is very nice of you, Diane. Thank you. Very pleased that you, a superb photographer, likes the photos :)
Had a superb Christmas with my son and Penny. Hope you and your family had a lovely Christmas.
Penny and the wee folks can sure teach great lessons indeed. Too bad humans have too much crap in their ears to hear it.ReplyDelete
How very true of you. The lessons our magical friends in the wee world and the lessons of our furry friends, lessons we need to learn before it's too late. Time for the crap to be removed from human ears.
We do so hope you are having a peaceful holiday season, good sir.
Christmas blessings to the Wee Folk, Penny, you and your son! You make such charming photos of them!ReplyDelete
The wee folks, Penny, my son and I, kindly thank you :) I'm very pleased you like the photos of the magical cast.
Hope you are having a great holiday season, eh! :)
And a very Happy Christmas to the wee folk, Penny and yourself Mr G, I wish you much peace and hope you have a good 2016. . . . Damn those years keep turning I must be getting old.ReplyDelete
We all thank you very much, kind sir. Peace and hope for the rest of the holiday season and beyond to 2016. Yes indeed, what happened to 1972!

I love the wee folk's Christmas gatherings! The lights, the candles, the happiness and harmony, it's all so beautifully peaceful.ReplyDelete
Merry Christmas Gary and Penny and Tristan too.
The wee folks are most pleased you like their gatherings :) The ambience captured for all of us to see and to immerse ourselves in.
We do hope you had a lovely Christmas, River.
Hi Gary, my hirsute friend. Ah, the wee folk. How magical. How filled with wonder. How great for the big folk who haven't managed to grow up properly!ReplyDelete
Of course, I jest, Gare. The wee folk are indeed an example to us all, particularly at this time of year, reminding us that it's more to do with peace and love than presents and money. Hoping that you, Penny and Tristan have a great Christmas and an even better 2016!
Very Best Wishes,
From your Andy Fordham-a-like friend,
Ah yes, perhaps the wee folks are the delusional creation of a raving lunatic. And yet, my esteemed friend, you know otherwise. You always have as their wee magical world has touched the very essence of your compassionate soul, good sir.
Thank you, David. I do so hope that your Christmas was a peaceful, positive experience. Let's realise a better year that be 2016 for you and for all of those who desire a world of peace.
One hundred and eighty!
Take good care, David.
Happy Christmas. Love all the photos.ReplyDelete
Thanking you. Had a very nice Christmas. Hope you and your loved ones did also. Delighted you loved the photos, my kind friend.
We did, thank you. Now, Tim has one more day of work and then onto the three day, New Year's weekend. We don't drink so it's not a big holiday for us, but we'll enjoy the three days off.Delete
Cheers with a great big side of boogie boogie.
Thank you for the follow up comment. Glad you folks had a good time. I'm sure Tim and your good self will have a nice, relaxing New Year's weekend. I shall be drink-free on New Year's Eve, just like every other day of the year :)
Nothing like a big side of boogie boogie!
Cheers to you.
Christmas is a magical time, indeed.ReplyDelete
Your wee folk family look quite happy in their new home!
God bless you, dear friend.
Christmas and the magic we can see and feel.
The wee folks have settled in very well.
Thank you, Susan. I hope you and your loved ones had a wonderful Christmas.
Gary, to get a glimpse into your world is like being a child again. That's a gift that you have. Good tidings and peace to you!ReplyDelete

Nothing like a dong dong on high and a bit higher...! :) Thank you, Michelle. Here's hoping your dear hubby and your adorable self are having wonderful holiday season.
Gary :) x
A past magical moment, frozen in time... I wish I had a time-machine and a fridge to boot. Here's to unconditional love, Gary. Bottoms up. No, not those bottoms.ReplyDelete
I shall send you a time machine and a fridge you can boot with your boot :) Unconditional love, what a magical ideal.
I do so hope you and your loved ones are having a most enjoyable holiday season. Tops up, good sir, tops up!
Oh how I'd love a time-machine, Gary. One will do. We can't be greedy, right? :)Delete
One time machine is arriving, via teleportation, to your place of abode, good sir. You could always use a 3D printer to print out another time machine, if greed gets the better of you! :)Delete
The Wee Folk set a high bar for humanity. Let's hope we can attain half as much love and understanding among ourselves. Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. Happy Boxing Day--which I don't exactly understand, but will read about so I can appreciate it. See you in 2016! Hugs and virtual doggie treats to Penny.ReplyDelete
Well put, my kind friend. They do indeed set a high bar for us. We can learn to jump that bar and break records for the heights of compassion that humanity can achieve. Thanks for your kind holiday type wishes, Lee. Of course, Boxing Day is an official holiday in a number of countries, the day after Christmas Day, which, because Boxing Day was on a Saturday, Monday is now the official holiday. Looking forward to seeing your illustrious self in 2016, my marvellous friend.
Penny loves the virtual doggy treats.
This is the kind of post that is good all year round to hear and see. Thank you dear Gary! I love seeing the wee folks again! I'm glad they like their new home...ReplyDelete
That very kind of you to say. Thank you, dear Lisa! :) It's such a joy to have the wee folks bring their message to us and a year round message it truly is. They are really loving their new home with the new adventure it brings.
All the best to you and yours, dear Lisa.
I love your pics - especially the Christmas lights, the giant stocking, and the gnomes! (Although Penny looks like she's not in the mood to share the couch with them! lol) I wish you, Penny, and Tristan a Merry Christmas, a lovely Holiday Season, and a peaceful and prosperous 2016!! :)ReplyDelete
Delighted you love the pics. Penny has pretty well taken over all sitting arrangements as her own! :)
Thank you for the seasonal wishes. It has been a very hopeful end to the year within my household. I do hope your holiday season is a wonderful time. Here's to an even better 2016 for you and your loved ones.
I love your Wee Folk, they are so wise! Your photos are so whimsical and they help me recall that wonderment of Christmas morning as a child! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours!ReplyDelete
Hi Diane from CraveCute,Delete
The wise wee folks love you, Diane! :) I'm really pleased that the photos make you recall those precious childhood Christmas memories. That is a wondrous outcome. Thank you for the Christmas and New Year's wishes, Diane.
I hope you and your loved ones had a joy-filled Christmas. Here's to an awesome 2016!
May you, your son, and of course, Penny, enjoy a Holiday Season as enchanted as the ones celebrated by the wee folks. And a Happy New Year to all of you.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Susan. It turned out that we had an enchanted holiday season so far. Hope yours is truly enchanted and an amazing, hopeful 2016 to you and your nearest and dearest.
I just love your sparkly world, Gary.
You & Penny our some of my all time faves! xxx
You are so sweet! A sparkly thank you, your way :) Penny and myself, her mere human, are most flattered.
Hope you are having a magical, hopeful holiday season, my adorable friend.
Gary xxx :)
Cute dog! I'm such a dork, I totally thought your gnomes were some of the seven dwarfs. I hope you had a good holiday!ReplyDelete
The dog thanks you for thinking she's cute :) They may well be some of the seven dwarfs, for all I know. My holiday was very good, thank you. Hope yours was wonderful, Becca.
