Fairy house with elder suite
Fairies love taking care of their elders and what better way than to build a separate suite for them with all the amenities of home. This property is almost completely made from mushrooms. It starts with two suites with wooden doors and in the middle of them is a secret entrance where the fairies can go when they need alone time. You can climb there on a hanging ladder. There is a bird’s nest on the top of the roof made from an acorn with blue beads for eggs. A mailbox is to the right of the complex. An archway made with white bone beads takes you to the side garden which boasts a pond, large bench, two small chairs and a table. Birch rings surround the outside of the garden and a reed plant pot with gypsy grass and a toadstool is there to view. Another archway with a welcome sign leads to another garden. In this garden there is a swimming pool, a lounge chair, large lawn bench, a table, plant pot , pine trees and a privacy fence made from birch bark. All this sits on a recycled ceiling fan blade. Ideal for indoor use only. Measures16 1/2” by 5 1/2” recycled fan blade and it is 3” tall.
