 Here is a fairy house we made out of a stump I had my husband haul from our woods. WE used everything natural from our yard, except the 2 screws holding the awning in place.

The complex....Notice the fairy slide to the right of the porch.

Closeup of porch..the moss we got from the woods too:

The garden complete with a lamppole.(the fairies put glowbugs in there at night to light up the park that has hens and chicks, and an oyster park bench with snail shell pillows)

Aerial view:

 Here is one of the residents:


 Some other residents include Tree Frogs and Ladybugs.

We have a 2 and a 4 year old and it is awesome to take them into the woods and look at the mushrooms, moss and twisted roots from the once upon a marshland! It is awesome! I am FROM the city, and i prefer this. It is serene. It gets my imagination rolling along with my daughters. I feel like a kid again sometimes. Especially in the summer when there are GLOWBUGS everywhere!

Do you say 'yes' to a single desire? Oh, my friends, then you say 'yes' to all pain.

Thanks!!! I can't wait for them to thaw here too. This was actually last summer.... I just decided to post because there is a fairy house craftalong. I already had one done and thought it would be appropriate to share!
