Fairy Garden Modelling dress day
Looks like there may soon be a fairy wedding, or this fairy maybe practicing for a modelling job. She is wearing a dazzling red dress made from fabric flower petals. A moving swing made from a piece of wood chewed by a beaver, a pine tree twig and birch bark hangs from an arched piece of wood. The fairy is standing on a birch round which is a landing to get to the roped ladder made from reeds from cattails to which one can access a mushroom balcony. Two toadstools and a pine tree accent the side of the garden. The fairy door is made from wood with a red bead for a door knob, birch bark for the door window, and a piece of mushroom for the doormat. Tiny seashells make the walkway look pristine. To the side of the door is a mushroom and above it is a window. Under the swing is a stone and lichen which aids the fairies to climb into the swing. Truly, a remarkable garden!!! Ideal for inside use only. Measures 8 1/2 by 5 1/2” wide by 7” tall.
