Fairy Houses

Post by minniev » Wed Oct 16, 2019 2:34 pm

One is occupied.

There's a custom on Monhegan for children to build fairy houses in one particular forest, Cathedral Woods. The houses must be built only of found items: bark, cones, moss, shells, feathers, sticks.

My youngest grandson was fascinated with this story and wanted a fairy in one of them so I kidnapped one.

Frigging awesome, such a wonderful tradition/idea!!! Please be Very careful in this, fairies can be dangerous to mess with - if you draw their attention, strange things can start happening.

critique -- for me, made fairy more yellow-green (like moss), made ball brighter, got rid of some distracting hot spots.

I am so glad no one did! It was embarrassing enough the first time!
