Faerie hutches are miniature, dollhouse-sized (1:12 scale) creations, each unique and each handmade with hours of precise attention to detail.

I made the first one for a friend in Gainesville when she opened a yarn store last year. This one is a little different, but similar.





And some close-ups:



Close-up detail shows off some of the amazingly intricate details. Top shelf has three bottles including "true love," "pixie dust," and "faerie dreams," a few glass potion bottles, a crystal ball and candle. The second shelf has a woven basket with three balls handmade of yarn, a silver platter and tea kettle, three more potion bottles and another glass bottle filled with the "sands of time." (I'm especially proud that I figured out how to make the yarn balls!)



The bottle cubby features a trove of yarns and threads, scissors, and a host of pretty silver bottles tucked into the corner.

I make them in all kinds of themes and styles and I have a great time making them. I hope you have fun viewing them too!  Cheesy

HA HA! From the thumbnail I assumed it was a full-sized hutch and came in to drool all over it.

I love the colors. You did a great job.

I'm a bit miniature obsessed, so I love this! Those tiny yarn balls and the tiny candle are sooooooooooo cute! Great work. I love the use of the beads as glass potion containers and the marble on a metal spacer as a crystal ball. Way too cute!

Thanks everyone! I may have to post some more since they are being so well received.  Grin

Yup! I made one for Lorena last year as a Happy Birthday/congrats on Hanks gift. I think she has it in the display case in the store. You can see her pic of it in her Flickr set here. And..yup! Here's the display case picture I remember her posting: Pic!

Thanks for the lovely compliments everybody! These are so fun to make, I'm glad to hear that people find them fun to view as well!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

Thanks! Grin As a rule, I glue things down. This way everything stays nicely in place during shipping. I could always not glue things down if someone requested though.
