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. This tiny fairy house sits below a huge tree stub. The fairy door is so tiny that it could be missed from others passing by, but the intricate details spark interest. An acorn swing dangles from the tree, and a bird’s nest sits above it with three blue beads as eggs. A bouquet of green and beige gypsy grass sitting in a reed vase adorns the door entrance. The pathway to the door is made from lichen and rings from birch trees, and fairies can sit outside on the acorn seats next to the swing. When the fairies notice they need a bit of alone time, they can use the wooden ladder made from the reeds of cattails to get down from their abode. A welcome sign is made from birch bark and below it sits a gorgeous beach shell from the shores of New Brunswick. There is also a toad stool made from an acorn top and reed from cattails. Ideal for inside use only.
