It takes me about 3 hours to mow our grass on the lawn tractor. It's my FAVOURITE chore Smiley As I mow I have visions of where the pixies, goblins and faeries live on our hilly grounds. Then I thought "How wonderful would it be to build those villiages so others can see them too!" And so, it being summer solstice and the PERFECT night for faerie activity I began setting up my little faerie fantasy.

Each of the houses measures between 1. 5 and 3 feet tall. There is a fire pit, laundry line, miniature garden tools that were given to me eons ago, fences, stone paths and branch swing. There's loads more floating around in my head and this is going to be my big project for the summer but I figured it was on it's way enough that I could share some pics.

That's fantastic! I love the little doors the most! I also love that there's a wee birdhouse for tiny fairy birds. Smiley
