Fairy House


It all started with Sabrina ripping out a small clump of grass from our newly seeded lawn... the grass came out with the dirt attached and to all our eyes looked exactly like a fairy bed. So of course we had to make a fairy house to shelter the bed, and pluck a leaf of lamb's ear for a blanket, add a few rocks for fairies to sit on, and even make them a swing. They also have a straw floor, trees that are bare or nearly so since it's almost winter. Oh, and two giant pumpkins to decorate their front door and stone bird statues to protect them. I am so tempted to go out tonight and plant evidence of fairies having spent the night in there... maybe a tiny acorn hat left behind?
