Fairy door no. 4: Anchor Cottage

After making three fairy doors out of twigs, I wanted to change things up by making some with a seashore vibe. I didn’t have any driftwood, though, so I posted an ask in my local Buy Nothing FB group.

Lo and behold, someone came through for me with a baggie stuffed with small bits and pieces from the beach!

Note the curved roof support! And the blue circular thing is an enameled metal button with an anchor on it, compliments of my wife’s button jar. 💕

After I constructed the door, I realized I needed a sand dune to photograph it against. What to do? I did not ask the Buy Nothing group for one — LOL! — but I did create a suitable backdrop with a rights-free image that I blew up and edited. Pretty effective!

Fairy door no. 3: Cranberry Cottage

I seem to be on a roll with fairy doors lately. Here is my third one! :- D

          gone dancing . . .
          carried on a breeze
          pixie-song

Note: The poem on the sign first appeared in a public poetry installation of fairy houses in New Mexico — an initiative of the very creative mother/daughter duo Maternal Mitochondria. See New scrolls in the fairy houses if you want more information. ;- )

Fairy door no. 2: Pine Cottage

Same poem, different door.

For this one, I used pine cone scales to create an overhang, to keep the rain out. ;- )
