All the World's a Fairy House Stage
Fairy House Puppet Theatre
I've been so very busy! I just finished a big fairy house project and I am hoping that I will be hearing news back about it soon! I will be able to share more later.
Once a fairy house idea gets in my mind, it is difficult to get it out until it becomes reality.
Sometimes a song goes along with the vision and sadly the song gets stuck in my brain until I drive everyone around me insane with my endless humming and off-key singing. ;)
Here is my puppet theatre that is up on Etsy right now: Can you guess which 'Sound of Music' song was playing in my head during this construction? lol
For this fairy house I hand-made 3 marionette puppets, a fairy maiden, a fairy gnome and a goat. I have always loved marionette puppets! I secured the strings to the inside roof. Behind them is a 'set' in the background attached to the back wall.
The puppets are made of paper clay. Theater seating is just outside of the stage for fairy on-lookers.
I am actually doing a few fairy houses that have to do with 'plays' and the theater. Another one in the works is a shakespeare-type stage that is inspired by one of my favorite movies, Shakespeare In Love. Joseph Fiennes... *cue swoon*
Keep an eye out and check back often, as I have so many fairy houses and projects in the works! Shop will be up within the next few weeks and I will be revealing my own exclusive woodland forest fairy that I make just for Woodland Fairy Village! Stay Tuned!
I hope everyone had an amazing holiday. It's a new year and with that comes many exciting new projects. I have many new fairy house designs and cannot wait to share them with you all! Just a sneak preview I will let you know that I am almost done with a fairy house named, "A Fairy Quilt Rack." This house is adorable I must say! And you don't have to be a quilter to love it!
With winter still abiding around most of us, its hard to imagine springtime but I do! I love snow (not driving in it though), but I have so many exciting fairy garden ideas! I can't wait to create them!
So off to work I go~ I'll be posting a few new ones this week in my Etsy shop! My shop here should be ready in about a month!
Thanks and have an enchanting week!

Musical Fairy House~
I am not typically superstitious. I just know that when I get a thought or idea in my mind about a fairy house creation it does not go away quickly. And most times, not until I am completely finished. This time was no exception. I am a fan of the Phantom of the Opera play and music. And I could not get the music out of my mind for this entire month. The strange thing was that it always came to mind along with the idea for my most recent fairy house. I had to create this. For my own sanity. lol For whatever reason, I feel a sense of accomplishment after completing it and know that for whatever reason, I have done what I needed to do.
I am a believer of many things.. some more than other. But I believe this Angel of Music fairy house is meant for a special person. When taking the pictures my camera lens was clear. However, note that is some of the images a fog of sorts streak up from around the Angel. Call it what you will. I know this will sell to the right person.
Take a look:
