A pocketful of rainbows

Tasmania has this power to transport you. Take you somewhere full of wonder. To fill your senses of natural beauty. To fill your body of what it needs to take on today’s life.

Lady Plummage is always in awe of this majestic state and the way it always has surprises in store.

Neil, has been going about taking more photos for book 2 and a possible book 3.

So wonderful to see this cheeky illustration come to life.

Walnut Ink

‘There is more life to what you see is old. How you treat it will decide how much is given back.’ Lady Plummage

Lady Plummage has been wanting to make walnut ink for some time. With knotted and gnarled walnut trees in her garden, Lady Plummage has been collecting the black, shrivelled skins, most are void of nuts due to the amount of plump possums in the area. She then prepares the walnut skins for the pot, where they are boiled, filtered, cooled and then carefully bottled.

Lady Plummage has given her book artist a bottle for testing before it hits our website.

The Faery Archives

The Faery Archives is very much like the Magic Circle for Magicians, you have to be part of it to really know what’s going on.

Lady Plummage is part of the Archives of which the Faeries of Tasmania is a small arm. Even though they are governed by the same set of rules, Faeries of Tasmania operates independently under the guidance of Lady Plummage.

The Feary Archives believe we are unknowingly living with faeries in our day to day lives.

‘With the work of Lady Plummage, the naysayers are becoming quieter and in some cases crossing over.’ Faery Archives

}

The naysayers or ‘Others’ as we have come to call them, are out to dispute claims of sightings and that this whole organisation is a farce, a notion for only children’s books and wide-eyed people wanting to believe. Ultimately the Others have no evidence to substantiate their claims.

The Faery Archives have a wealth of knowledge and research spanning many years, of which some are in the Faeries of Tasmania book.

Real Faeries?

This was sent to us from a follower, who would like to remain anonymous. Their mum caught the Faery accidentally whilst videoing her Bird of Paradise for a friend. It wasn’t until later, whist watching back the footage, noticing the tiny flying creature. It looks like it briefly watched mum, before chasing another faery.

‘Becoming just a dream’

An excerpt from one of Lady Plummage’s interviews.

‘It landed on the back of my hand, checked its foot for something as it seemed to be irritated. Then straightened up and flittered to my forearm. The wings really stood out to me, long and pale in colour.

‘It was only a moment that we made contact before it flew off. It has stuck in my head ever since and the more the years go on, the more the memory fades, becoming just a dream. It changed my life to the point that I now make little houses for them. They’re up in my trees, just in case they visit again.’

Lady Plummage’s Quince paste

Since the early Greeks, this fruit has been coming in and out of vogue. It’s very much in at the moment and Lady Plummage is on a mission to make it stay.

{

‘I first tasted this paste whilst trekking through the Spanish vineyards. We would end the day corralled around a small wooden table, tasting wine and cheese, which was topped with a thin slice of sticky sweetness.
My my, it was heaven at first taste.’
Lady Plummage

}

With Lady Plummage’s love of Quince, she is now developing her own slabs of heaven.

Quinces are picked by hand, cleaned and then simmered with a perfect mixture of sugar, lemon and water. That’s it!

{

‘I named a nearby sighted faery Membrillo, as it was equally as sweet.’Lady Plummage

Lady Plummage’s Quince paste is not ready for retail just yet. Much more tasting is needed.

Future products may come online as Lady Plummage develops her range.

‘I have no words’

Something very special arrived this morning, a beautiful faery sculpture. It was left at Lady Plummage’s doorstep, delivered anonymously with a simple note written on handmade paper.

To the person that delivered this gorgeous gift, we are lost for words and has touched Lady Plummage deeply. Thank you.

{

‘I have no words to surmarise my feelings right now. Beautiful and wonderful are just not enough.’ Lady Plummage

For others wishing to see the gift, we have dedicated some pages to it within the first book. Available throughout Tasmanian bookshops from the 18th November 2022.

Dark Faeries in Tasmania

They can bite, scratch and excrete a nasty poison, which could cause blindness or just a mild irritation. Here at Faeries of Tasmania, we do come across dark faeries from time to time from witnesses. We archive their sightings as equally as we do the lighter side of faeries. All Faeries are unique and special in their own way. We know of an organisation that specialises only in the darker side and all the negative forces that come with it.

If you do encounter a dark faery, please keep your distance whilst taking notes. And if you encounter someone talking of only dark faeries, please keep your distance and notify us.

Through research of Edith S Brown, it has come to light that she also encountered the dark faery followers.
