Tiny, tiny fairy furniture and a tiny, tiny dictator…

I’ve been planting this year’s fairy garden with the help of the most instructional, demanding, and opinionated partner you could imagine, one so particular that almost no decision regarding the space has been mine. Placement, color, flow, are all very important to her, and must be done exactly her way. I concede because my partner is my daughter and because, well, she is… three. So, right now planning our garden is not the most relaxing thing. My solace has been in creating a new line of garden doo dads, tiny stuff that I took great pleasure in crafting and would place perfectly if, in fact, my garden were actually my own:)

Items I Covet…

Since I’ve begun crafting, I’ve been fortunate enough to be introduced to the work of others who are also utterly compelled to express themselves, in whatever media that works for them. I have seen some of the most beautiful, most unusual pieces on Etsy, and have to share them because they blow my mind. I now fancy myself somewhat of an artisan expert, and below, are my current favorites:)

Fall fairy dollhouse…

I swore, in a previous post, that I would never again put another dollhouse together from scratch. It was complicated, messy, challenging… And yet here it is, inspired by the tiny fairy I am lucky enough to spend my days raising:)
