For Valentine's Day, I made my daughter a little gourd house, roughly following the instructions from a tutorial on Bitter Betty's Blog, adding a wooden base and a set of little fairies of my own design:





The gourd wasn't flat enough on the bottom for the hot glue to hold it onto the base for long, so I'm reworking that now.  When a little friend's third birthday came up, I decided she needed some fairies, too:



But I needed an alternative to the gourd house for their home, since I haven't fixed my daughter's yet, and I came up with this super easy little idea:



The little fairies can sit at the table when it's time to play:



Or they can retreat into the little box when it's time to sleep:



There are tutorials for the fairies and the little woodland box (not that you really need a tutorial for that one) on my blog. 

Thanks for looking!
