Fairy Artist Studio
A fairy artists’ dream; their own art studio. The red door is made from wood and is entangled with pine tree twigs, a bird’s nest on the roof of it is made from an acorn top with blue beads for eggs in it. There is a silver bead for the door knob. A piece of pine cone resembles a tree and a piece of birch bark accents the door entrance. The art easel is made from wooden twigs and a piece of birch bark. The artist has a picture on display for visitors to view. Paintbrushes, a paint palette and a shell tray to hold water is part of the studio. When the artist gets tired, there is a chair made from pits of fruit and a mat made from feathers and cloth to relax their feet and to feel comfy. What else could they ask for? Ideal for inside use only. Measures about five” wide by five” long.
