She ran to get me from the house and warily, we approached the scene a little closer. Is that a . . . a . . . door? With a welcome mat and a broom beside it? Jeez, it looks like someone's living there. Do we have . . . new neighbours? YES! Wee faeries have decided to move into our tree and set up housekeeping.
We haven't actually laid eyes on the faeries yet, but clearly they enjoy gardening and bird watching. Isn't that little wheelbarrow with the hedge clippers and watering can adorable? And the little birdhouse with the bluebird of happiness on top -- squeeee!
So welcome, neighbours! We hope you enjoy living here!
[In actual fact, this gorgeous faery door and accessories were made by the extremely talented artist, Jeanne Gripp of The Candy Corn Chronicles. I've enjoyed reading her blog for several years now and decided to surprise My Rare One by custom-ordering this magical installation for our yard. And My Rare One was indeed very surprised and very delighted with it! Click here to go to Jeanne's blog and here to go to her Etsy shop.]
