Introducing the Fancifulls ~ My Flights of Fancy

Welcome to the official Hazy Dayz Dragonflies and Garden Glitter website.

Here, I shall endeavour to keep you up to date on the lives of “The Fancifulls”, a collection of winged insects that I’ve imagined, designed and will be creating. Each character will have their own back-story. They know each other and live harmoniously together, well not always harmoniously, in “Oh Valley,” my interpretation of my current home, Ottawa Valley.” Written to enable you to follow along and hopefully become as attached to them – via floral stem, alligator clip, ornament hanger, hair comb, brooch pin or suction cup – as I’ve become. I will introduce each character in a post – giving you opportunity to read about them and know when and where you may acquire your very own copper version of that character. With help from loyal fans, I hope to introduce at least 6 different species of flying insects over the next 3 – 5 years.

Not wanting to give too much away, you may figure by their chosen names what type of winged creatures they are. First up, Darby, Delta, Dixie, Dexter, Daphne, Dirk, and Dinah – the Hazy Dayz Dragonflies for which my company was founded – (trading name, thanks to a very smart man, my lawyer, Hazy Dayz Garden Glitter.) Soon, I’d like to introduce you to Flutter, Bianca, Fanny, and Buttercup, followed by Bizzy, Baxter, Belvedere, Brighton, and others, all made of shiny copper sheet that will gradually weather to a handsome verdigris patina.

So settle yourself into your comfiest chair with your favourite cuppa and here’s hoping you enjoy a delightful sneak peek into the goings-on of my friends, “The Fancifulls.”

Thank you,

Sue Gibb
