A fairyland wonder
Imagine being a fairy and owning this piece of real estate. It is everything any fairy could ever want. With two entrances, one for the young fairy couple and an in-law suite, there is lots of room for all the fairy activities. The home is made from a birch log, with a wrap around piece of driftwood found in Nova Scotia. Both doors are made from wood, one with a shell door knob and the other one a piece of birch bark. The entrance way on the bottom floor is made from a fungi, covered with a piece of birch bark. A beautiful green flower sits next to the door and to the right of it is a mailbox, where mail is delivered daily at no extra charge. Above the door are two wooden ladybugs merrily climbing up to the next level of the house. The top story of the house can be reached by an acorn rope ladder that leads to the stone entranceway. The hinges of the door are made from seeds. To the right of the door is a birdhouse made from a piece of cork. The highlight of the house is to the side on the lower level. A baby carriage made from a walnut shell, beads and a fabric blanket and mosquito net to protect the little fairy baby, is outside and there is a seat made from a double fungi for the parents to sit with the baby. A wooden ladder leads to a balcony where one can enter through a window. On the balcony is a vase made from a reed and is filled with gypsy grass. True paradise!! Ideal for inside use only. Measures 8” wide by 13 3/4” tall.
