Fruit Flies in my Kitchen--It's a Good Thing!

It's a good thing to have these
fruit flies in my kitchen.
I unpacked this small ornament collection this morning
and they've taken up residence in my kitchen window
until after the holiday season.

Several years ago, I first found a couple of these ornaments.
Since then, whenever I happen upon one
I add it to my small collection of now six ornaments.
"Miss Strawberry," the newest addition,
was found the first year I moved into Buttermilk Cottage--
a good omen!
Stirring up the Christmas plum pudding!

"Miss Hospitality"

I love the whimsy of these ornaments.

Tea, anyone?

They're a little difficult for you to see, but they are now hanging in my kitchen window and make me smile every time I look up from the sink.

While I was at it, the Kitchen Fairy begged to go to his place in the other window, where he spreads sugar dust during the holidays!

And keeps an eye on the winter garden.

I'm linking to the "All Things Merry & Brite" Party

Ah, fairy dust...
Just what the doctor
ordered! I am especially
enamored of the Tea Fairy,
but they are all adorable
and look so at home at your
windowsill. Thank you for
coming by and spreading your
own fairy blog-mother dust
at P&H ~ You are the best!
