A Gift from Devon, England

Devon, England 

Just the name sounds romantic!  

My sister was just there and tucked away in her suitcase a very special birthday present for me!  


She and I have a special love for Pixies

It's a little vintage souvenir piece for Wigecombe, England
and perfect for holding...well, pixie dust of course! 

This piece is marked Runnaford Pottery Devon.  
It was purchased in a charity shop chock full of delicious items. She knows me well! 

I just love the cute little shadow it made.

She takes wonderful photos of their travels around the world!

Thank you, Karan!

The English have many a fun mythical garden being to help in the growth of may a plant. We have gnomes in our yard, and you have cute pixies to aid you - and being from England, your FL garden will grow all the better. A very thoughtful gift!

My great aunt used to have a little lucky pixie very much like this from Devon. As a kid I thought it was a real pixie... hmm... must have been a gullible child... :D
