Property development for Fairies

Recently we took a day to drive to the Ards Peninsula in County Down.

We walked through the grounds of Mount Stewart, enjoying the ancient trees and the carpet of bluebells.

Then we came across this little jetty at the edge of the lake.


These Alpine water ferns totally caught our imagination.

M and I almost immediately thought of Fairies.

We had recently read Barry and Tracy Kane's book "Fairy houses Everywhere"

The rest of the day was spent collecting materials and building.

We enjoyed building this little house so much .

I can see a Summer filled with more Fairy Real Estate.

I've agreed to carry a ball of twine and pair of nail scissors with us on all our walks and park visits just incase.

You can find some beautiful fairy houses created by Roxie on Flickr here and here.

Oh how beautiful. Looks like such a lovely place to be. I remember when my daughter, only a couple years ago was still making fairy houses. Now she's almost 12 years old and thinks she's to big for such things now I guess.:)
Thanks for stopping by my blog recently too. Always good to hear from you. Have a great day!

Such a coincidence - my girls have been drawing plans for building fairy houses today! Thank you for the links - they'll love them.

Aww that's cute! I used to make fairy houses as a child, I made them out of rocks and flowers and moss and twigs and basically just stuff I found. I used to live near the water so I would build little fairy islands too, with moss as grass and flowers, mini trees and obviously houses for the fairies to live..
