The enchanted shoppe beckoned them to come closer to see what lay inside for them. The pixies had been busy anticipating their arrival bringing food and drink for the happy couple.
Peeking through the windows, they knew this was a magical place for these were things that the two of them had crafted together on their journeys.
How can this be, they wondered. How could their things have arrived before them. But then with delight, they realized they were seeing the reflections of their hearts in the windows. Reflections of what this could be and how wonderful their new life would be here in this tiny town.
Here they could happily share their wares with one and all. Local townsfolk, passer-byers, the weary travelers tired of seeing the same humdrum things.
With the help of their woodland friends, they began to make ready for a grand opening fit for a princess and her prince. They merrily began amassing things to make people smile and be joyful once more.
Even Father Christmas stopped by one day and gave his blessing to the shoppe by adding his own special touches of tinsel, ornaments and visions of sugarplums.
They continued to make ready by filling their shoppe with all kinds of fancies both handmade and purchased on their many journeys.
There were the tiniest of shoes for waltzing and the finest of gowns fit for a fairy godmother. White shining treasures to make even the saddened heart leap!
Trees sprouted in the sparkling shoppe as birds scattered glitter as if it were snow.
The tree limbs sagged as delightful nests, filled with delicate treasures nestled in them, magically appeared on the branches.
Cradled in every nook and cranny were dainties the fairies were busily transforming from ordinary objects into sweet dreams with their blown kisses.
Everything was just as they had dreamed it would be and so much more. They christened their magical kingdom The Willow Nest Farm.
Linda and Ludmil were very happy that the paths they had chosen led them to the hamlet of Burton in the kingdom of Texas and they lived happily ever after.
