Today I made my first attempt to leave gifts for the faeries.
I read that faeries like sweets, cream, butter, pretty stones, and shells. Hunting in my craft supplies and my fridge, I found some of these items.
Faerie gifts: butter, cream, raisins, a slice of turquoise agate.
With my heart-shaped plate of faerie goodies, I went down to the stream behind our house. A hollow at the base of a tree seemed like a good spot. I brushed away the leaves, and set up my offerings.
I also read that there are special chants or songs to sing when offering gifts to the faeries, but I didn’t prepare any. The faerie gift hollow is going to be a work in progress.
Tomorrow I’ll check to see what happened.
