I've been reading "A Pillow Monster Every So Often" (formerly "A Pillow Monster A Day") for awhile now. The author, Nichol's, creations make me smile, and I can't believe how inventive she is--each one is unique and has it's own little story.
Pictured is Midge--my new little garden fairy. Her story:
"Midge is an independent girl. She marches to her own drummer. Actually, she is so independent that she prefers not to march to a drummer, but rather to a trombonist. She thinks trombones don't get enough credit. When Midge was stung by a bee, it hurt, but not as much as her heart hurt when she learned that bees don't live too long after a sting. Midge has since worn her bee suit in honor of her bee friend. Midge's interests fluctuate frequently, but currently she has a passion for all things blue. She loves clear skies, swimming pools, her neighbor, Johnny's, eyes and blueberry sorbet, which she eats every morning for breakfast."
