Description

This listing is for a signed 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" PRINT on 8" x 5 1/2" heavy matte photo paper of the Snack Fairy, Clover. She will arrive in an archival sleeve in protected envelope via First Class Mail. Story included! More on Clover below:

I make no claim to a green thumb. My thumbs are typically far too covered in Neutral pH Adhesive, acrylic paint and glitter to ascertain what their actual color might be. Nonetheless, last summer I decided to take a stab at Planting Some Things, and among the things I planted were tomatoes. Or tomato, I should say, because after a summer of watering, pruning, and fretting over caterpillars, my scraggly little plant produced exactly one (1) admittedly fetching little tomato. In spite of myself, I was excited. I decided to let the little fella ripen for one more day before he met his destiny in a lovely caprese salad. Apparently, my Golden Retriever had other plans, and I tore out the door just in time to find her gobbling down my beautiful tomato, a big slobbery, tomato-y grin on her goofy face.
Heartbroken doesn’t begin to describe it. Never again, I vowed. It would be strictly farmer’s market produce for me. But of course I caved and planted another one this year, and a strawberry plant too. You can bet I situated them well out of the dog’s purview! And once again the plants produced only children, leaving me to estimate the cost of this tomato and strawberry at $60 and $25, respectively. Last week I wandered out to harvest my crops (Ha!) only to find them gone. Gone! Again! I drooped into my wicker chaise to sulk and spied something distinctly unusual out of the corner of my eye.
Clearly the grief was causing me to hallucinate, but it seemed to be…my tomato! It appeared to be hovering, upside down, about 3 feet off the ground, a small blossom and tiny propeller affixed to one side, and tethered underneath in a teacup I had left outside a week ago was this very fairy you see right here. Making use of a mushroom and a slice of buttered toast as ballast, she was clutching a fork in one hand. I could only guess it was as insurance against any would-be dire aeronautical disaster.
In a shy and barely audible voice, she explained that her name was Clover and that she was a Snack Fairy. The small rodent who accompanied her was Tidbit. Having pressed my precious tomato into service as an airship, she could now navigate the neighborhood in search of comestibles, which she was very keen to find as she was always famished. While she was chirping away I spotted my strawberry transporting a pair of diminutive kitties (Nosh and Nibble) in an espresso cup I was sure belonged to my neighbor. I sighed deeply because, really, who is going to argue with a fairy with a fork? She went on to say that because I was so very generous with my tomato (again, HA!), she was putting a special Snack Fairy spell on my garden to show her gratitude. I smiled weakly and went inside for a cold compress and possibly some Advil. Well, I have to say that Clover is a Snack Fairy true to her word, because the next day my tomato plant was positively sagging with fruit, as was my strawberry plant, and they are the tastiest produce I have found. Maybe she will bestow her magic on your garden as well.

I absolutely adore Ramona's artwork. I have several of her original pieces that have brought me so much joy. The beautiful Mushroom Sprite is my favorite thus far. I especially love that the stories behind each piece, adding even more life to what is already imbued with energy. Don't hesitate to add one of these to your collection.
