Forest Fairy Abode

Forest Fairy Abode

I am so inspired by the lovely colors of Spring around me, that I am adding some soft color washes to my Fairy Houses!

This is a project in my yard. If it works I will post pictures for this fun project!

Slender willows were cut about 8ft long, sunk in ground 18", deeper the better'
 and now it's water, water, water! Willow limbs will sprout roots if kept wet.

bark is scraped off and limbs tied together to promote grafting

This endangered Golden trout is hand made from Sugar Pine
I cannot explain why I love wild trout, but I do. I do not fish!

Helping with Nature Display

One of my goals with my shop is to make things that are not found elsewhere, but are needed. This was the original inspiration for a variety of Gnome Homes and Fairy houses.  A similar area of interest is that of accommodating Nature Displays, with shelves or stands.  I want to make some wall shelves and cupboards too, but the little display stands are a start.
