Can't tell you how therapeutic this is - I can get lost in this really
If you missed last week - where an
I started off with this birdhouse bought at the dollar store
A little craft paint later and I had transformed it into a fairy house
I added flowers to the bike basket
Since this is going to be a village - this little house needed an address - this is 12 ( Rainbow Road )
Faux flowers and faux moss will be the ground cover - ( all from the dollar store ) I've kind of just tossed the flowers in here for the sake of photos )
Here's the little bird bath with the interior painted blue to resemble water ( smushing the brush all over it makes it look like sunlight reflections )
I don't know when this will stop but I've started seeing things through different eyes ( tiny eyes )
For instance this old wine cork that I've had since the beginning of time
all of a sudden looked like a planter - a little paint made it even more so
and a few little beads and such off of a miniature wreath looked very much like niblet corn - cauliflower and a cherry tomato - fairy bounty !
and this jam jar lid looks like a table top for al fresco dining when you look at it with fairy eyes
Which can sit on top of this candle holder
and create a little pedestal table complete with red and white checked table cloth :)
I embellished the arbor a little with some faux vine - wine glass rings and a chandelier piece - because
Fairies love bling
And that's it for Rainbow Rd, Fairyville
Stay tuned - construction starts on Blue Bird Lane and will be completed next week for Fairyville Friday ♥
Just in case you think I've totally flipped my lid this is being created for the little guest room upstairs where the guests ( for the most part ) will be the most precious little girls although this could very easily make me start believing in fairies again :)
Sneak peak for next week?
A twig ladder I made to rest against a house, complete with flowers growing up the sides - and maybe a butterfly.
John was breaking up branches and throwing them into the compost
Suzan yells out - Are those twigs your tossing out?
John says - Yeah, why?
Suzan says - I NEED them - don't throw them out please
John says - What the hell do you need twigs for?
Suzan says - A ladder
John says - I'm not even going to ask you about this one
John sits there shaking his head
Suzan says - For the fairy village
John says - You sound touched - absolutely touched..............I hope the neighbors don't hear you talking about this.................
John says - There's some wet leaves over hear - do you need them for a miniature swamp?
I'm telling you I could just pee my pants with the way he reacts to everything - literally !
Did I ever tell you that I run and write down these conversations?
Some nights he'll say something in bed and I jump up and he screams
DO NOT WRITE THAT DOWN !!!!!!!!!
So I have to lay there - concentrating on what was just said - and then casually get up for a drink or something and make a mad dash for my pen
Now isn't that the cutest?
Hmmmm - and he was throwing them out - I mean come on now
Care to have another sneak peak?
Of Bluebird lane?
Have a wonderful weekend one and ALL !
I'll be at these parties this week !
