Fairy Expansion

Our daughter and her family visited from Illinois these past few days. The youngest grandchild, Harper, was entranced by our fairy house, but she also was frustrated that it had a fake door. 

“How do the fairies get in?” she asked.

“They’re magic,” I said. “They just pop in and out.”

“I don’t think that’s how it works,” she said. 


We left the fairies in a rearranged state and went for a quick overnight trip to the beach. I’d forgotten all about them, but Poppa (a.k.a. Studly Doright) began planning to build a house with a door that would open and close.

When we returned from St. George Island on Friday afternoon Harper was napping, so Poppa and the middle grandchild, McKayla, went to work on a new fairy house. 




By the time Harper awakened most of the building was completed, but she did add her opinion.


In fact, the idea to use leaves for the curtains was hers. 


Here’s the finished project.  Notice the original dwelling behind the new house. We’ve got the beginnings of a village!


And the door opens, so these fairies don’t have to rely on magic to enter and exit.


I noticed a couple of wee folk have already taken possession of the new place, 



along with a happy frog!

Poppa and McKayla, with a wee bit of help from Harper, made a big impact in the Florida fairy world.

Peace, people!
