Not sure how Mike Kennedy passed, but he was young. You’ve seen many of his collaborative projects on this blog. The artists did a wonderful tribute painting to his memory.I will post that in the future.
Perhaps he felt my joy taking these pics, and sent a ray of shine. It’s been very grey and dark since late December.
It wasn’t always this glamorous out here in the alley.
“Destination Mammal Cabana” was a quirky mural. I adored it & walked by it almost every day. Click on the pic to visit the post I did 4 years ago. It’s now in RIP
Then, recently one morning, I walked through the alley and saw:
It was hideous.
Graffiti Art had been obliterated by graffiti throw-ups and tags.
Using Fairy Power, I got word of the devastation out to the street artists.
Soon after, on Easter Morning, I saw this:
It was like a dream come true!
So, I put on a clear plastic garment bag and a gorgeous 10 year old Vera Wang wedding gown. I hightailed it back down to the alley,
… whereupon Tensoe painted me,
… while I took in all the new art.
It had been decided by the artists that they would do predominately Graf Writing, as a means to keep the destroyers away.
⭐ Sherrie, there’s a rat in this slideshow for you! At least I think it’s a rat. Lol, last rat turned out to be a squirrel.
After I was finished, I was named Tenesa, and had my picture taken with all the Graf Writing and pieces.
♫ ♫ I feel pretty, oh so pretty ♫ ♫
Best time I’ve had since New Years!
Not sure how this happened? There was only 1 pic like this.
Oh no, it’s time to go! Sniff!

I would like to take a ⭐ fairy moment ⭐ here to thank Brenda Davis Harsham. Her blog, Friendly Fairytales is absolutely wonderful. It’s as though Brenda got lost in the woods, as a child, then was found and raised by fairies.
Brenda was one of the first two who said they would contribute to Kids’ Month. She wrote 3 poems. Thank you, Brenda!
I’d like to add that Brenda’s fairy knowledge of all lands magic gave me the idea for the title, and a centered concept for this post. In my heart I feel she is the “Redemption Wall Fairy”.
The Gown Artist:
Thank you, Tensoe! You are forever etched into my heart!
