Good morning everyone !
The last " episode " ( let's pretend I have a weekly t.v. show, shall we ) I showed you the Fairy Church in the Wildwood..............there's a Church in the valley by the Wildwood
It comes complete with a twig cross on top so that it can be seen from far and wide
No lovelier spot in the dale
There's an ominous looking collection of giant knives next to the Church.................
Ok - time for another house - this one resides on Blue Creek Way...............
Again I started off with a dollar store birdhouse -
I cut the door out with a steak knife - John's going to kill me - really he is - one of these days he's just going to have reached his limit and wham - no more simply vintageous...........by Suzan.
Anyway he didn't catch me - so there's at least one more post in my life.
I decided this house should have a thatch roof - by using this ( also from the dollar store ) faux moss
( remember when we said everything was fake? fake fur - fake flowers - fake moss ? How come we don't call false teeth faux teeth? Doesn't that sound more elegant? )
If you've never seen this - it's so realistic it's unbelievable that it's FAUX - I may just cover my own house with it instead of painting it in the fall :)
I buttered on some Carpenter's glue and a paint stick - because I'm a carpenter building houses don't you know? ( here is Montreal we have a Home Depot - and a Reno Depot - I'm giving a shout out to Reno Depot because they sponsored this post............. NOT )
Then I pressed the moss onto it and painted stripes all over the " body " of the house
( it's not easy getting into the minds of fairy's and trying to figure out what they'd like, you know, but I do my best )
I found a little lamp finial that fit on the top perfectly ( there was a hole there where I pulled out the rope to hang the birdhouse with )
I made another twig ladder - because a thatch roof has to be constantly taken care of - and like all contractors, once I'm done with a job I walk away completely - so they'll have to run up and down themselves with repairs.
I was giggling out loud as I was typing -
John says - what's so funny
Suzan says - do you want to hear my post so far?
John says - sure
Suzan reads it to him - again giggling -
John says - in a flat dead voice - You sound mentally defiicient, do you realize that ?
John says - I honestly don't understand why anyone reads you sometimes
John says - It's complete nonsense
Suzan says - Oh put a sock in it for crying out loud.....................
I didn't read him the rest
OH !!! Say can you see? In the far right hand corner?
A fairy flag for all of my American Sisters ! ( made with a broken paint stick - the Reno Depot one to be precise - since they didn't sponsor this post )
Happy July 4th - hope you all have an amazing celebration weekend
( well I hope everyone has a nice weekend wherever they are lol )
You can see the last Fairy house made HERE
The village is growing in leaps and bounds
( and I have no idea where I'm going to put it now - never put much thought into that )
