Fairie Dwellings

Supply a home to our ethereal friends in your backyard, in a park, or in your city apartment. Great fun with kids, as the activity is usually outside in nature, and sparks imagination and creative play.

Visit the Maine Fairy House Festival in August -
According to The Compleat Wetlander, fairy houses are, “a 100+ year tradition in Maine, especially along the coast and on the islands, when many island communities had working farms. Traveling schoolteachers brought folk tales involving fairies that inspired islanders—children and adults alike—to build gnome homes to attract fairies in order to watch over the livestock and children during Maine winters. A fairy house traditionally included a tiny altar with a small offering, such as a coin, to pay the fairies to help the farmers.” www.mainegardens.org  More events: www.fairyhouses.com

We created a Fairy Lane in a nearby woods. It has been very successful in encouraging families to get out walking in these wonderful woods and in the magic of fairies. http://strongstart.blogspot.ca/2012/10/welcome-to-fairy-lane.html

elemental sanctuaries
Reply #4 on : Mon October 08, 2012, 10:35:15
What a delight to see this collection of inspiring
gifts to the fairy world. A few years ago I created what I called Elemental Sanctuaries and really explored what these love most. I grew to understand that they are beings of constant change and are happiest when the parts of their sanctuary were movable. They asked for metals that cannot be picked up by a magnet!! They loved colour and texture. If you are interested I could send photographs of these works. I also make little fairy figures ( they love to costumes!!!).

Thanx FoR sharing. You made me smile
 
  • Gutter Gardening
     
    Easy, attractive and inexpensive. Also good for those with bad backs...
  • Cactus Roofs
     
    Cactus roofs are a perfect choice for hot, dry climates.
  • Brushwood Fence
     
    Fence made from brushwood, Japanese and Australian Style.
  • Herb Walls
     
    Vertical herb garden inspiration.
  • Hugelkultur
     
    Instead of putting those branches, leaves and grass clippings in bags by the curbside...build a hugel bed.
  • Keyhole Gardens
     
    This sustainable gardening method uses kitchen and garden waste and gray water (or wash water) as food for your vegetables.
  • Moon Gates
     
    A threshold between worlds, (or garden features).
  • Dry Stone Walls
     
    Constructed without mortar or cement. The art of the waller.
  • Wattle Edging
     
    Ancient as gardening. Wattling is fun and attractive.
  • Wattle Fence
     
    Since Neolithic times we have fenced our sheep and vegetables in this easy to make (albeit time consuming) wooden fence.
  • Seeds
     
    The intricacy and diversity of the seed.
  • Pit Greenhouses
     
    For those in northern, high altitude or windy climates who wish to grow their food year round. Take advantage of the insulating properties of the Earth.
  • Insect Hotels
     
    Call them bug condos, insect hotels, insect habitats, wildlife stacks, insect boxes, insect houses, insect walls, wild bee walls, insect accommodation, wild bee houses, solitary bee walls or wild bienenhaus. Wildlife habitat is rapidly disappearing. Building beneficial insects a special habitat will help your garden and the bugs.
  • Living Willow Hedges
     
    Willow cuttings called 'withies' easily root in either water or moist soil. Plant in late winter and come July you'll have a privacy screen.
  • Hedge Laying
     
    Over two thousand years older than chain link.
  • Greenhouses from Old Windows and Doors
     
    Replacing your old windows or windowed doors with more energy efficient ones? Here's a project to repurpose those old windows.
  • Stone Furniture
     
    No more plastic! Or vinyl, or PVC! Looks great as a weight loss program as well. First, the perspiration created while moving the stones into place, and certainly one would not become lazy and lounge around for too long on any of these pieces of furniture.
  • Pebble Pathways
     
    More pebble ideas...
  • Succulent Inspiration
     
    Just a spritz of water here and there...
  • Fairie Dwellings
     
    Be they imagination or real, legend says that fairies will come and live in a house they like.
