* Is There A Fairy In the House ? Kid's Garden Fairy House

The Frog Princess and I spent Mini-Saurus' nap on Saturday
painting this Fairy House for our backyard.
We picked up the plain wood house
at Michaels and used my 40% off coupon - woo hoo!

I probably should have gotten all crafty and built one from scratch
but why reinvent the wheel!

We painted it with watercolors and sealed it with clear shellac spray paint
from our garage stash.

Since we're in the process of installing a hanging clothes drying line,
we decided the fairies would line dry their flower clothes as well.

We used teeny-tiny clothespins to hang up silk flower "clothes"
on their rainbow clothes line.

Now we keep checking for fairy evidence.

For our next yard craft we want to make some fairy doors
like the ones Nikki made at WhiMSy love
(Check out her WhiMSical Fairy Doors here!) to sprinkle around the yard.

I freaking LOVE that you have a clothesline! I am so stealing this idea to do with my daughter! She's 10, but she'll still love it!

We had a fairy village developing in our yard a few years ago (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ladystrathconn/sets/736359/). In Vermont, fairies migrate south for the winter, so they pack their houses up before they go. Sadly, our garden has become less hospitable (to everything but weeds) and they have not returned. Maybe next summer.

...I can't wait until Punky is old enough for this sort of crafty fairy goodness!!!

I love it!!! The colors are so 'fairyesque!' And that clothesline is too sweet!
I've entered it into The Magical Fairy or Gnome GArden Challenge and I'll link to it tomorrow... Love it!
Blessings and magic.
