Opened red door to fairy kitchen
Everyone deserves a well made kitchen and fairies are no different. The door to this kitchen really opens with a golden hinge on it and a tiny sea shell for the door knob. Right outside the door is a seat made from wood and a piece of bark. Two steps going to the house are made from mushrooms, and a piece of bark continues to the entrance. A sea shell is used for a plant pot which has a paper flower in it.To the right of the door is a toadstool made from an acorn top and piece of reed from a cattail. When you open the door to the kitchen you can first spot a table and two chairs. These are made from wood, birch bark, reeds and tops of acorns. The shelves are both made from birch bark and they adorn a wide array of cooking pots made from birch bark and wooden beads. In the corner of the kitchen is a sink made from a piece of sponge covered with birch bark and the sink is a sea shell from the shores of New Brunswick. The faucet is made from a piece of coiled wire. On the wall is a clock made from birch bark and a sign made from birch bark that reads “Eat and be Fairy” shaped into a heart. Fairies are so sweet and thoughtful! On the floor next to the table is a round mat made from yarn, to keep the fairies warm during the cold days. The roof is a sea shell, also found on the shores of New Brunswick. Ideal for inside use only. Measures 8 and 3 quarters” long, 5” wide and 6 1/2” tall.
