Those are fabulous Del, thank you! :D The Fairy Door thing was very big around here for awhile, especially in a college town nearby. I'll have to find the website of the artist who did them. He had pictures of the one he did in his girls' bedroom. it was one of the dollhouse doors that he put in the wall and put all kinds of stuff inside it, staircase, little lights, etc. When I first saw it I tried so hard to get hubby to do one in our girls' room. He said the idea of doing a door and room for little people in a wall in our house was creepy and he wasn't going to do it. :roll: :lol: :x

The fairy garden is so sweet! Do you still have the fairy house hanging from the tree as well?

If you can't manage running water could they make a little reflecting pool. I'm sure fairies like to check their appearance occasionally. And how about some toadstools to sit on - a fairy ring - fake ones cos I don't know how toxic real ones are and wouldn't like to chance it.

I also thought the fairy house looked like an outhouse. You could really have some fun with that :). Or how about a little washing line? They could hang their spare wings out to dry!

We still have the fairy house, but it's not hanging up right now. It needs serious repairs.

Love the ideas! And, yes, I can only think of it as the outhouse now. :lol:

Hey!
It's always a good idea to build a house for your cute fairy :)
When this is done, build up a little fence around it, a small garden in the fairy garden, where the fairy can grow what it needs to eat.
In general, make this place look like someone is around and caring for all this.
Think about your own house or house of your dreams.
What would it look like? How would you decorate it?

Also small fairy furnitures are a nice idea.
