Do You Believe in Fairies?

Oh my goodness, my favorite time of the  year.  Time for the fairies to come out soon from their winter sleep.  I could not wait to start working on the front of their home  and their pond as a kind welcome to them.  I just want them to keep coming back.  So, I found them this fabulous door on Etsy by Jay Beesmer at Wooden Treasures, from North Carolina!  It arrived today and it is more beautiful in person!  I love it Jay and the fairies will too.  The butterfly, well that is right up our alley around here in funky queendom.  THANKS Jay! As a side note, Jay and his wife at Lovingly Crafted...are quite the brilliant wood artists.  You just have to go and check them out on Etsy.
Here is a close up of the door!


Do you believe in fairies?  I hope you do!  Isn't it enchanting to imagine that the fairies do all kinds of magical things at night while we are sleeping?  I would love to know what your thoughts are about fairies.  How can I fix their little area up more so that they will feel welcome?  Ideas?

Of course, I "believe"...I AM your Prairie Fairy after all! A tiny solar light above the door might help us find our way without falling in the pond? Perhaps an itsy-bitsy gift basket w/wine & fairy sunscreen waiting for our arrival? We LOVE the red door created by your artist friend. Thank you!

I was thinking of a natural welcome for the fairies, a bit of sweet woodruf flowers planted by the front door stoop? They like the damp. Maybe a tiny ivy wreath by the front door? It is a lovely door and I'm sure will delight many fairies and people alike.

Hi Lesley! This is Pam (The Altered Muse)in Ft. Worth. Just wanted to say Hi and let you know how much I relate to your post about zeroing in on "my thing" in the world of creating. I have many great ideas and I am always writing them down and telling myself to focus..focus..focus and do these great things I have in my head. I have purchased many items to complete these things, and they are wonderful, but pretty much sitting there in the studio. I recently converted my garage to a workshop for classes and hope to start them in the next few weeks. I am so like you in that I am drawn to gathering things for workshops, with the hope of niching my own thing to teach. Hope to hear from you soon and I believe you are on the right track. My blog is full of all things creative. Please take a look. www.thealteredmuse.blogspot.com. Talk to you soon. Pam
