We have a new little addition to the family...


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!

This is too cute! My husband has taught my daughter to make tiny "fairy houses" out of sticks (like his sister used to do when they were little) and she loves it! She makes them now when she goes to grandma's house. My mother likes to find odd little cracks and holes in nature and say that is the door to a fairy house!

What a wonderful idea!
That's just awesome! I hope I have kids just like you. Good luck with your story and everything with kids.

That's so adorable! I make little gnome houses out of clay and I love anything 'fairy tale' or 'gnome'. It's just magical looking!

Are we ever too old, too grown up for a little magic in our lives ? I truly pray not ! May childhood never die within us, may we all be touched by the enchantment of fairies, elves and pixie dust ! Lovely blog post ! Anna

Oh that is pretty cute!... I can imagine a little gnome family living there, and on the other side there is a big door they call the "magic human door" heehee.

That is such a cute idea. I'll have to do one for my grandson.
