fairy architecture 101

Last week, I was joined in the studio by four very creative kids eager to build houses for the fairies who inhabit their gardens. They all had very definite ideas of what features their fairies would like in their homes, and figured out how to make them.

These girls collaborated on their houses.
This one had a swing, a ladder to the second floor, and monkey bars
(because fairies love to play!)

She built a beautiful beach house for her fairies, who obviously need a vacation spot.

Here's house number two, a modified teepee.
It has two stories, a ladder, a nest and a hammock
for lazy summer afternoons...

This one comes furnished with deep, fluffy moss carpets,
plates and platters, and a slide!
