Fairy Doors

I'm not sure when I came across seeing the first one...but I can tell you, it was love at first sight!

It makes me happy knowing that there is someone out there crafting these little treasures. Can you imagine being at a cocktail party "So...what line of work are you in?" "I make fairy doors"...I love it! Hats off to the artisans and the believers to add a little magic to their garden or home. Whenever I have grandchildren ( don't worry nobody is married...or even engaged yet, so family members reading this post don't let your imagination run wild) I am definitely going to have a fairy door in my house, and fill their heads with enchanted stories!

You don't need grandchildren to have fairies -- we have a fairy house and garden at Linderhof . . . and in the summer at nights I really think I see light coming from the windows. Gardens should contain enchantment and there is nothing as enchanting as fairies!

So go for it!

These adorable little doors are too precious for words. I'll have to tell my grandchildren a story about magical fairies that live in our garden.

Hi Nanc! I told my daughter that I wanted one for her little Emily and she looked at me like I was nuts!! There is a lday I know who has one that she mounted on her wall and she decorates it for the seasons!! I want one so badly, but I really want one like hers!! I'll have to see if she'll tell me where she got it!

Have a great weekend BFF! It's nice to feel well enough to sit up and visit!!
Love ya,
Becky

These are darling and so needful to stimulate the imagination of young and old alike. We all need to band together and find Fairy Door Makers!

I have one and thought everyone did! It is on my front porch! I live in a Fairy Tale world and I like it here. :)
Hugs,
Mona

p.s. I think that is why life outside my Fairy Tale world is so upsetting at times.

I so enjoyed these photos of fairy doors... I think we all need a little magic and enchantment in our lives, especially at home. Thanks for the view!
