Triangular fairy house
Who wouldn’t want to be intrigued by this beautiful fairy house? It has a triangular shape that will lure your imagination. The roof has wooden shingles that beavers had chewed off the trees, a star shaped piece of fungi found near a river in Fort McMurray, Alberta, a bird nest made from an acorn and beads for the eggs, and a wooden swing tangles from a perched limb of a tree. The door has lichen on it, with a piece of birch for the knob. When the tired fairy arrives home, they can have a seat on the wooden bench, put their feet upon a beach shell that came from New Brunswick, and admire the toadstool, pot of flowers and a spruce cone, resembling a tree that sits next to the house. The entrance way to the door is made from birch. The house is freestanding and is suitable for indoor use only. Measures 8 in. tall by 4 in. wide
