~ Spring Time ~ Fairy Houses & Mushrooms

Several years ago, when we had our shop, I found a most delightful artist who made little fantasy & fairy houses. A lot of our artwork featured fairies and even mushroom houses. So I kept 3 of the mushroom houses and a strawberry house for us. They are so special and I'm am quite happy I still have these. Each one was hand built from clay and fired, and each is one of a kind. Her attention to detail and fun is just amazing. Do you ever have things that you really wish you had kept or purchased after time goes by and it's too late? These would have been such goodies. I would have been so sorry now if I had not kept them.

I thought it would be fun to set them out on the living room mantel with the vintage style bunnies for Easter this year. Aren't they amazing in the details?

  4. Yes, they really are amazing. I'm always drawn to anything that evokes fantasty/fairy tales and these are so perfect. I have a few things that I've lost track of.... either lost or gave away or ??.... and they're things I wish I had now. Some had sentimental value only but those are the best things to keep.
