Can Fairies live in bird houses? Can they live at the Beach in a bird house too?
You betcha as long as you believe in fairies- I do.
Recently, my good friend Pat Camblin gave me some goodies and told me to play and I did just that. I picked up the fairy die made by Sizzix and I had some Stampin Up Silver glitter paper and some Red glitter and some beautiful Gold. I purchased some Pink glitter paper. I want to give a Thank You shout out to my friends at This & That in Chino Hills,CA Delaine, gave me 8 quarter pieces of purple glitter paper that was cut by mistake.
On the beach House it’s attached to a base which is being held by an actual tree branch (both the base and branch are taken directly from Pat’s yard). Pat’s husband Tom made the bases and fasten them to the tree branches, the other houses have spindles which were purchased from habitat for humanity.
The house is painted with folk art paints , and painted to look distressed, (tried to resemble a restaurant in Pismo Beach, CA The house came with the little white picket Fence (love Picket fences). Little shells, aquarium gravel in a powder blue and reindeer moss are the added decoration. I found a perfect little bowl shape shell to add as a bird bath outside the window.
The Fairies on the other side of the fence. I’ve always imagine when the Sun goes down and the Moon comes up that the fairies come out to play and I know on certain nights you can see them (smile)…. I choose to do a birdhouse setting in the garden
This house is attached to a spindle onto a beautiful wood base (from Pat’s yard) I took Linnie Blooms canvas picket fence to make a circular fence. The Linnie Blooms picket fence is sewn double sided and I tore it apart to make for pieces instead of the two that come in a package. (I only used two pieces). I fringed the canvas to make a grass look at the bottom of the fence and I fringed the side of the gate entrance to make an appearance as to being weathered. The canvas fence is colored with the tropical gelatos from Faber-Castell and the green grass is painted from Richard Garay Celebration line. Misc pieces of reindeer moss covers the spindle. (The canvas fence is glued to the based)
I added twigs after painting a magenta color and added little crystal balls to the end of them. Another twig was painted white and a pink glitter fairy is sitting up top of it.
The paper added to the roof (photo doesn’t do justice is has glitter sparkles) it’s made by company called Best Creation, Inc. a local company in the city of El Monte,CA The company has a wide variety of glittered type product. The paper is called Fairy-item #F003 (it’s double-sided other side is a lime green overall with a semi faded dark green polka dot (beautiful paper) good texture). http://www. bestcreation.us
