Fairy Land & Magic with Tricia Fontaine


Did I get your attention?

Do you believe in MAGIC?

Dos Pueblos Ranch…This is where it happens!  Originally the land was a Spanish Mission.  The original property was 15,535-acres & part of a Mexican Land Grant in 1842(click the blue writing to go to a site where you can read about the ranch & see more of Trisha’s photos) it was deeded to a private individual.  It is not that large today but, it is one of the largest privately owned properties in California.  Ever since Cindy & Cynthia (no blog) were getting ready to go out to Jenn’s Fairy Event last year they started following stalking Trisha Fontaine of Converstaions with the Muses.  Trisha is a talented, beautiful, fairy like spirit that puts together the most magical Special Events you have ever seen.  Cynthia surprised us by calling Trisha & setting up a visit even though she was VERY BUSY getting ready for a wedding that weekend.  She promised us about 30 minutes.  And this is what we found when we got there…


We found Trisha & two of her “elves” hanging crystals in the huge trees.  Trees that are hundreds of years old.

We couldn’t wait for the tour to begin.  Off to the barn where we see soooooooooooo many of the receptions pictured in Trisha’s posts.  BE SURE YOU GO TO HER SITE & HAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO HIT THE “OLDER POSTS” BUTTON SO YOU CAN SEE ONE WONDER AFTER THE NEXT.

The old BARN her husband rescued one post at a time.  This is how we saw it that day.

This is what it looked like for the wedding.

MAGIC I TELL YOU…. She creates MAGIC!!!!

The tables set & such beautiful unexpected things become part of the settings when Trisha & her “elves” start creating.

I thank Trisha for her letting me use the photos from her blog post because when we were there they had just started setting up & it was bare bones but, WOW!!!!!! I am just amazed at the beauty.  OK… let’s hop in the car & go see where lots of the weddings take place.

Under the railroad bridge, past the avocado orchards (before the weddings that is how they tried to maintain this property), & following the road to the beach.  A PRIVATE BEACH!!!

I think that’s enough over load for today.  What do you think?  Will you go visit Trisha?  You won’t be sorry…

Let me wet your whistle for the next post… a trip to her home & looking at more of the Fairy Wonder!  Hope you’ll be back.  IF you sign up with your email address on the right side of my sidebar where it says “Follow by email” you will get email notification each time I have a new post so, you won’t miss the next chapter in an amazing time in California.  Have a great weekend & stay cool which is hard in these sizzling August days.
Hugs!  Charlene
