We got into a bit of trouble so now we have to put up little signs everywhere (including this one here on Deviantart) to remind everyone that they should not be feeding the goblins...not even if it's just one wee little goblin with the most adorable (yet slightly odd looking) grin. Never-ever-ever feed them anything...especially not cookies!

You see...we recently moved to a new country (called the Nether Netherlands) and most of our friends came along on this big adventure of ours. Obviously this also include our very good friend and honorary Picsee; Eric the goblin. Now, on his own Eric can be quite a handful and gets into a lot of trouble with almost no when he asked us if he could invite one of his wee goblin friends along, we should have known this could only lead to more trouble than usual...But we didn't. 
We said "of course you can! The more the merrier!" But sayings like that should always come with terms and conditions, cause Eric's friend also invited a friend...and so did that friend and that friend's friend invite a few friends too, and so on, and so on, and so forth...which is how we ended up with a few hundred goblins living with us in our new home....But this is not exactly the reason we are in trouble and putting up wee signs everywhere...

We were always friends with the goblins and there's always been hundreds of them around, but back in Scotland they all lived in the woods where they mostly just ate some roots and got up to some minor mischief. But because they now lived in the house with us, and because we were taught sharing is always a good we gave them some of our cookies last night. 
It turns out none of those roots they ate in the forest had any sugar in them...but the cookies certainly did...and suddenly so did all the goblins!

They...went...crazy! absolutely bonkers! they started running about, eating every single sugary snack they could find! And when they couldn't find any more snacks they started eating anything they thought might have some snacks inside. By now they ate so much sugar that they could not taste it anymore so they started eating absolutely everything! In the end there was nothing left except for the walls, an old shoe and a few vegetables. They basically ate the whole house!
And then they went to the neighbours and asked them if they had some cookies...which they did, so the goblins ate all their cookies and then they ate their whole house too! And then they ate the house next door to them, and then the one next to that...and so on, and so on, and so forth...

They kept going until their tummies got so full that they couldn't move anymore. The sugar eventually worn off and they all fell asleep in the streets. We went to get them all and brought them back home, one by one with our wee little wagon. Luckily they had the sugar crazies so bad that they couldn't remember anything when they woke up...including the lovely taste of cookies...and we are certainly not going to tell them or share any of our cookies with them ever again...and neither should you, cause they'll eat your house too! So please, please, not feed the goblins! can still leave some cookies out for us at night...we'll be good! we promise ~:)

De Kabouters... by thePicSees
De Kabouters...

It's us..the Picsees! We've been away collecting some good old days but we're back now! Well.....actually it's not just us who's back and also we're not really back where we used to be. You see...once upon a time, about two months ago we got a special letter from our friends the Kabouters.

Have we told you about them before?

The Kabouters are wee folk (but not quite as wee as we are) that lives in magical place called the Nether Netherlands. They are sort of like gnomes, but in the same way a meerkat is sort of like a kittycat. They all wear big pointy hats under which they keep all sorts of useful things like string and spare cheese. Every lady kabouter has lovely long braided hair and all the kabouter men have big bushy beards. Most of their time is spent helping the wee animals of the woods. A very very long time ago they also helped people but then some bad people came and scared the Kabouters away. Most people thought they left this world but they are still here, they just live underground now. They still come out to look after the wee animals but only when there's no human beans around...which brings us back to the letter...

You see, the Kabouters knew that not all human beans are bad. Actually they believe that most of them are good, and they've always wanted to help the good ones again...maybe even become their friends. But because they haven't seen a single human bean for such a long time, they don't know anything about them anymore...And that is why they wrote us the letter. The letter invited us to come and live with them in the Netherlands for a while so that we can tell them all about the lovely human beans we've met, and in turn, the will teach us all about their way of life so we can tell those lovely human beans all about them too...and those lovely human beans are of course you ~:D

So we're back...but not back in Scotland. We packed up all our things (this includes the 2 human beans we live with) and moved all the way to the Netherlands. We now live in a lovely city called Amsterdam, and we can't wait to tell you about our adventures and all our wonderful new friends.... de Kabouters ~:D


Once there was a wee little gnome named Galagasco.
Now, if you had to choose just one word to describe him you would probably use the word 'lazy'. And if you did you'd be right. The thing about lazy folk is that they usually end up with lots and lots of things to do that never gets done. This was also true in the case of Galagasco. One day it got so bad that he decided it was time to do something about it. Many lazy folk make this decision, but he went a step further than most of them...He actually did something. 
He made a list. 
At first he titled it 'Things To Do Today', but since it was already afternoon he decided to change it to 'Things To Do Tomorrow'. And credit given where credit is due, he did write down quite a lot of things to do. It took some time, but it was a good list and he was rather proud of it. When he was done he read through it once more and thought that with so many things to do tomorrow, he should probably spend the rest of today resting.

He folded up the list and placed it on the wee table next to his bed where he snuggled up and found his way to dreamland in no time. He slept like a log and woke up well rested the next morning.
"What a lovely day" he thought as he got out of bed, until he remembered about the list and all those things that needed to be done. His heart sank into his little boots. He sighed as he picked up the list, but as he began to read, a smile appeared on his face. He re-read it few more times, just to be sure and gave another big sigh, only this time it was a sigh of relief. 
"I was a little worried for a while" he said to himself, "but there was no need, for this is a list of things to do tomorrow...not today". 
He folded up the list and put it back onto the wee table next to his bed.
"And since I have so many things to do tomorrow" he thought aloud, "I should probably spend the rest of today resting". and got back into bed.


This is a drawing we made of our friend Root. He's a wee burrow elf and he lives under the cobblestones just outside our house. Like Root, most burrow elves live under cobblestones and they've done so ever since people starting putting them absolutely everywhere. Cobbles are nice and smooth unlike the 'wild rocks' you find in the forests. No nasty sharp edges on which you could bump your head. When they find a loose one they will crawl underneath it and dig out a little hollow that they call home. They share these little abodes with all the local crawlies which will usually included a frog or two, some snails and a whole bunch of different bugs. They see these crawlies as part of their family and look after them really well...which is why you should never ever take a crawly away from its cobblestone.

Unfortunately this does happen from time to time. People will lift the cobbles, put the crawlies in a jar and take them home. We don't know why they think a jar is a good place for a crawly to live but the crawlies sure don't like it and neither do the burrow elves. If they suspect you took one of their crawlies they will sneak into your house and try to rescue them. If you are lucky they will find them and leave...but if they can't find the crawlies in question they will play tricks on you day and night until they get their crawlies back.

At first it will just be little pranks. An older burrow elf might pull a preposterous faces and leave an imprint of it in the butter or maybe they'll put some onions in your pillow case but the young ones like Root know about computers and smartyphones. They also like to pull faces but instead of leaving imprints it in butter they will email it to everyone on your computer and they know a trick that will make your phone do a call when you put it in your pocket. But if these pranks don't do the job they will start to take things from your house and bury it under the cobbles. They are quite small so they can only take little things, but this doesn't mean the big things in the house is safe. You see, most big things are made up of tiny bits and bobs...and tiny folk can take tiny things apart. So the big things might stay inside the house but they don't work very well when all their little parts are hidden outside under the cobblestones. This will go on until everything single they can carry or take apart is under the cobblestones or until they find the crawlies...whichever come first.

People quite often blame the wee folk when things go missing or doesn't want to work, and it's true. Sometimes they are indeed the ones to blame...but all they want is for their crawlies to come home. And they will always put each and everything back exactly where they found it if you do the same with the crawlies.

Of course it does sometimes happen that a crawly gets trapped in your house without you even knowing, so if you can't find your keys and you really looked everywhere they could possibly be, it might be a good idea to start looking for some crawlies instead. And if you do find a wee frog or a lost little bug carefully pick them up and put them outside by the cobblestones. Chances are you'll find your keys a few minutes later right where you left them...

The Faerie Informer Newspaper!

Fb Thefaerieinformer by thePicSees

Today is quite historic and very very exciting, cause today we get to share our wee little newspaper with you! yHay! You are actually very lucky cause no human bean has ever
 seen a newspaper from the faerie realms's true, you will be the first! Up to now all our news was written in faerieglypics which you would not be able to read...actually half the time we can't even read it ourselves!.
But from today, by appointment of her Wee Majesty the Tooth Faery we will have a worldwide website edition of The Faerie Informer newspaper that's specially written in human bean letters...and for good reason too! You see, not too long ago Her Wee Highness didn't believe that Human beans like you existed, actually most faeirefolk thought human beans were a myth. But then we showed her our facebook and deviant art pages

and she was amazed at what she saw...not because she just found out the mythical human beans are, she was amazed at how lovely and kind you all were...all the lovely messages, good wishes and so many smiles. When she saw this she immediately declared you and all our other friends on here to be honorary magical beings....and all magical beings gets to read the Faerie Informer newspaper ~:D
We hope you like it very much, We are still busy translating some of our old news articles into human bean letters and will add them all on there soon...but more importantly we'll be posting all the latest news and pictures and wee stories from the faerie realms on there so you won't ever have to miss a single thing that's happening in our wee world.

  • Playing: later we'll be playing hide and sneak
  • Eating: Cookies
