Pumpkin Pie Fairy

MyHero and family all
love Pumpkin Pie.
I love it, too,
although I don't eat
it anymore...except
for the special
crustless
sugar free kind I make.

However, I especially love
my very own Mark Robert's
Pumpkin Pie Fairy.

He hangs over the stairwell
and the "hidey holes"
where the fairies hide 
little treats for the 
grandkids.
Isn't he sweet?
He is big-about 18" tall
from head to toe.

I look forward to bringing
him out of hiding every year.
Soon, he will go back to
the closet and another 
fairy will replace him!;>)
But-just for today-
I will keep him out 
and enjoy him.
Why is he still out?
 I think he's got his
NAUGHTY on and I am 
afraid he might HEX me.
I could end up in 
HIS BOX
and he could be enjoying
MY PIE!

Fun! I heart pumpkin pie:) xo

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Those fairies are cute. I had not seen them or heard of them until a couple of years ago. They can get quite pricey. Yes, keep him out. Don't want you hexxed.

Debby said...

He looks like a sneaky ole fellow. I bet that pie will be gone before Thursday.

He looks like he could pack away a few pies,so you better watch out! I love all the trimmings on his outfit.

Jettie said...

Yum, looks good, and the PP Fairy is cute. I don't think he will HEX you as long as YOU behave, sweet sis.

Ellie VanCaster said...

Very cool fairy-I don't think he'll hex you though-I think he
looks and listens from his hidden spot all year and he knows better than to try it-LOL

I love Mark Robert's fairies, I want to start collecting a few of his Christmas ones! He's a cutie!

Blondie's Journal said...

Oh, is he cute or what?! The kiddies must love him! Your pie looks delicious and I want to say how impressed I am that you can still say no to sugar. I am doing fairly well as long as I keep the sweets out of my house. But yesterday I made cupcakes and well, you know...

XO,
Jane

Still think the fairy knows who he is dealing with and is pretending he doesn't. LOL

Gina said...

He's quite handsome! I forgot about your hidey holes. I always loved that idea!

Karen Harvey Cox said...

What a great fairy, and I appreciate that recipe for the pumpkin pie. I usually make a regular one for the family and a sugar free on that I can eat. My daughter will appreciate the gluten-free.

Wishing you a beautiful Thanksgiving.

Zoey said...

That is a tradition I have never heard of before. What fun!

Little Miss Maggie said...

I do love Mark Roberts' fairies. So whimsical indeed. I have never seen Pumpkin Pie Fairy.

My Grama's Soul said...

I love Mark Roberts fairies.....in fact I have many of them and use them at Christmastime. Usually I buy them on sale after the holiday....and THAT makes them even more special.

The pumpkin pie fairy is so cute.

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Wonderful tradition...I think I'm opting for Pumpkin Crisp this year and not pie. Do you think the Thanksgiving Fairies will strike me down? lol. Enjoy your evening!

andrea@townandprairie said...

Hi Diana. I Looooove pumpkin pie, warm, with ice cream. Love pumpkin pie cheesecake even more. I hope you have a very blessed Thanksgiving with your family! Gobble, gobble!

Kelly said...

I love pumpkin pie too. It is such a nice tradition to have one at Thanksgiving isn't it? Love your cute little fairy too. I bet your grandkids will give it lots of attention during their visit.

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

MMM-MMM. Can't wait to have some pumpkin pie!

koralee said...

He is adorable and well my favourite pie is PUMPKIN and I only eat it at Thanksgiving...yum...Happy American Thanksgiving to you.xoxo

Pam said...

And the point of a crustless pie is what? The crust is the best part!!! That gluten free recipe does look yummy though.

susan@avintagefarmwife said...

I bet your little ones love him! I may just have to make that pie for my gf daughter-in law. I read Blondie's comment and just have to ask, "No sugar? How long have you been able to do it?" go you!

Janet said...

Mmmmmmmm I LOVE pumpkin pie. It is almost the only kind I eat. And I can eat it all year 'round. :)

Cute fairy.

Have a wonderful evening and a great Tuesday.

Take care, Janet W

Lynn @ UpCountry Olio said...

Oh those fairies are clever and mischievous (and super cute too). You are wise to let him have a good time before he heads back to the box.

You can just keep that little fairy over at you house. He might be cute, but I don;t want him stealing my pie. Thanks for the link. I am planning my gluten free menu today :)
