Today how about finding out a few secrets about my fairy houses. First they are created from the magic of nature fairies and Spirit. My hands and eyes are merely the vehicle used to bring them into this earthly realm. What I receive is joy while creating some very unique whimsical enchanted houses. I have them tucked around the house in safe keeping until they are needed by a fairy elsewhere. I know full well when Spirit is ready for them to go they will bring absolute joy to the new magical beings. But until then I create.
When I start creating a fairy house I build a frame made from wood, pine cedar poplar whatever I have in the shop. That is my contribution. From this point on the magic takes over and the creation takes place. I cut pieces of cedar siding branches and twigs and start to glue nail and fit them into place. Next I will tear apart pine cones and flatten bark that has been pulled from fallen branches that I discover on walks with Tuck. Moss shells and pebbles are glued in and the house starts to form its own personality.
Building the fairy houses is a loving creative process but it takes hours to create one house. Each house is decorated also with fairy furniture. Some is chic and elaborate and some very whimsical and woodland. The interior is unique to that house and of course one of a kind.
