Opened blue fairy door
Free standing on a piece of tree bark, this fairy door that really opens is a treasure to behold. If legends are true that fairy doors are portals to other worlds, then they will have no trouble in starting their travels. There is a golden hinge on the door, a ring from a birch branch for the door knob and birch bark for the round window on the door. On the top of the door there is a piece of a tree branch with a bit of lichen on it. A bird’s nest made from an acorn top lies on top of this and has small blue beads used as eggs. A large reed based vase has tall gypsy grass in it, tiny sea shells are placed near the entranceway, along with a toadstool made from a reed and acorn top. A small beautiful shell is there as well, and hanging from the side of the door is a sign that reads “Welcome Friends” made from the bark of a birch tree. Which fairy could resist this? Ideal for inside use only. Measures 4in. wide by 4 1/2” tall.
