Since everyone seemed to enjoy Ruth’s previous photos, I thought I would share two photos that Ruth took about a week ago.  Here is the story in her own words:

Hello Natalie! Here are some pictures from my walk in the woods last Friday with my daughter and our two dogs.  These are the same woods where I took the misty bird-like (dragon?) pictures a couple years ago.

I have a loop that I walk in these woods and I usually walk the loop at least twice. On our second time around, just on our way out, I noticed a mossy stump that I thought looked especially “interesting.”

I told my daughter about it and asked her if she thought this particular stump didn’t look special and she said that it looked like a “faery crown” to which I smiled and agreed with her!

Just as I was walking past this stump, something caught my eye. I saw something inside this stump and had to stop and bend over to get a closer look.

Inside of this stump was a tiny vintage porcelain china faery doll! We couldn’t believe it! I brought it home with me and cleaned it up and now it’s sitting happily on my dresser in our bedroom.

I looked up the name on the bottom of it which says “Acme China – Japan” and I found an image of one exactly like it and it shows it’s circa 1940-1950!


The circa 1940-1950 Fairy Figure found hidden inside the mossy stump.



Considering all the other phenomenal things happening in this same forest which we talked about here, it’s hard to believe this was just a coincidence, isn’t it? 🙂

Thanks for sharing your latest story and photos with us Ruth!
