Cup/Saucer Fairy House
Coming home from a hard day’s work and seeing this enchanting fairy house, will put a smile on your face and positive thoughts of the little fairies that exist amongst us. The cup and saucer are recycled fine porcelain from Regent. Above the wooden door are small rounds from a birch tree. Mail is delivered at the door in their fairy mailbox made from birch bark and wood and the door knob is a round piece of birch branch. The roof has a beach shell and a bird’s nest made from an acorn with three small blue beads, sitting on a piece of lichen. The walkway to the door is made from a mushroom with three nut shells sitting on the top of it, and to the side of the door is a bouquet of gypsy grass sitting in a reed vase. On both sides are spruce cones used as trees, there are also two toadstools made from cattail reeds and the tops of acorns. Ideal for inside use only.
