It was that time of year again, time for new fairy houses,
and this year I had TWO helpers:
my good friend and her 5 year-old niece:
Isn't she cute?
She wore a tu-tu and brought a fairy wand
(see it behind our fairy houses?)
and a fairy doll.
These were our houses and they came complete
with stone paths, bark chip beds, leaf blankets, pine cone pillows,
and a communal dining area.
I thought they were pretty fancy
but a 5-year-old imagination did not stop there.
She had us building things like
this bathroom with a wood plank walkway
and even a flower for a deodorizer.
Then we moved over to the pond
and built this lillypad stage
for when the fairies wanted to sing.
All that building left us famished
so we decided to head inside for some snacks.
Later, we tiptoed back outside to see if any fairies had moved in.
We didn't see anyone around.
Bummer, but I promise to
keep you posted should any magical creatures appear.
Thanks for joining me!
