It arrived!! It finally arrived!! It's taken over two months to arrive, and in the meantime I had entirely forgotten I'd even ordered it (it's been busy around here lol) but it's finally arrived and it's just adorable!
"What's arrived Rosie?" I hear you say, well this did honeys...
You see, I've always wanted a fairy garden. If you were to look closely at the shelves and bookcases and window ledges around our home you'll find any number of fairies, angels and of course Hubby's dragons, all peeping out and dancing across surfaces :)
So, when I saw this lovely little fairy cabin in the shape of a log.... well that was it! I fell in love :) It's also solar powered too honeys. At night it will glow with a soft, warm light from inside. Let's have a closer look shall we?The side of the tiny fairy home moulded in resin looks like this...
If you look through this window you'll see three tiny led bulbs. These bulbs are powered by a solar panel attached to the back of the log house. Isn't the tree trunk shaped chimney on top of the log house adorable?
If we turn the house around, at one end of the log there is a little front door with two tiny windows :)
If we look at the other end of the log house, we see the "back wall" of the cabin and it too has a pretty little window...
Will we have a look at the only part of the log house we haven't seen yet honeys? This is the "back" of the fairy house...
As you can see, there are two more windows, the larger window again has the prettiest little window box. You also have a much clearer view of the "chimney" from this angle too and sitting alongside is the solar panel which powers the three tiny led bulbs inside.
There we have it then honeys, a perfect little fairy home :)
I really do adore this little log home and really the only possible chinks in it's design I can find are the windows not being "closed" and that the on/off button too is on the base attached to a panel, again not sealed to the elements.
Hubby has said he could easily place clear plastic/acrylic behind the windows to keep out the rain and I'm sure the base could easily be dealt with too. I had originally thought my planned "fairy garden" might look wonderful if placed among the roses in our front garden, or possibly among the lavender in the back garden. Either spot would, I'm sure, please any fairies who choose to take up residence in the tiny fairy house :)
I've checked and this little log home is available on Amazon, I bought mine from Studio, the cards & gifts catalogue and I'm sure it can be found elsewhere on line too honeys.
So, what do you think? Do you have a fairy garden? Have you ever wanted to make one? There are so, so many ideas and tutorials available on Pinterest and on Youtube showing how to make a fairy home as well as how to create tiny furniture and garden accessories for them :)
Till next time then dear ones, smile lots and hug even more :) Huggles always xxx
