For the past 4 years I've built fairy houses on my property and people come and wander and poke and look. Here are photos from this years set up...











We have a little mailbox attached to an old maple tree. The fairies leave personalized mail for the kiddos that visit.



There is always extra smudged mail at the house so no kids are disappointed if there isn't mail waiting for them.





These little cocooned babies were a BIG hit with the kids who visited today. They were sleeping quietly in old mossy tree stumps.

It must be so much fun, watching the excitement of the kids.

These are so wonderful and sweet. People who do things like this for kids just out of fun, are so few. Lovely memory for the wee ones. Smiley

I would love to be a kid exploring all the fairy homes!
Forget the kid- I would love to wander around and admire all the details! Smiley
Fabulous idea and adorable houses!

Absolutely beautiful work as always knicker.  I love how you are constantly pouring joy and wonder out into the world everywhere you go.  It's such an inspiration.

These are amazing! I would love to wander around looking at all the beautiful fairy holes! The fairy mail to the kids is so cute and I'm sure they treasure the letters!

Awww, I love, love, love your fairy garden so much!! I'd love to take a fairy tour and explore it all by myself. Who wouldn't want to receive mail from the fairies?!?!

Amazing, you rock for making this and letting the kids enjoy it all!  Shocked

Thanks everyone! It is sooooo much fun Smiley

One little girl was keeping a very close eye on those baby fairies and kept checking on them. When she went back for another look one was in a slightly different position and started exclaiming "IT MOVED! IT MOVED!". Very, very rewarding to have reactions like that Smiley
