Fairy, Fairy Nice!
It seems that my first birthday card fairy has a name! She is the Candytuft Fairy, from a series of illustrations of Flower Fairies from the 1940s. Drawn by artist Cicely Mary Barker. The card came free of the album page with very little effort, and this information was on the back. Who the card came from is still a mystery, and likely will remain so. I like that she's part of my herstory, from a time when black and white photos preserved the events before I formed memories. Thanks, Mom, for preserving this lovely bit of artwork. She is precious to me.
