Look what showed up at our house today!!! This ADORABLE little wooded fairy door from a wonderful etsy shop, NothinButWood. (This is the picture from the shop...my camera batteries are re-charging so I'll post a pic of our door later!) Anyway...I showed Jack and Ari the little note that came with the door that had a picture of a little Elf on it. And, since they can't read yet, I made up a story about how the little elf sent us this magic door, and if we find a special place for it in our garden, he will use his magic key to open the door and visit while we are sleeping.
You can stop laughing at me now.
So my hope is that the kids and I will begin building little benches, adding stepping stones, creating a little garden and even a little outdoor stove for our special magical friend who visits while we sleep.
I'm keeping an eye out for cute books about gnomes or fairies - let me know if you have any suggestions!
And if you have kiddos or grandkids and a tree, you need a fairy door!
