The Mushroom Fairy House ~ Julie McLaughlin


"The whimsical treehouse-like architecture includes a winding two part WOOD TREAD STAIRCASE leading to the front door and dining area landing. 3 TYPES of MOSS were used to insulate and complement the colors of the wood and natural SHINGLES. REALISTIC RASPBERRY VINES wrap around the pedestal base and home. (these berries are so real looking I was tempted to pluck them and eat them while working on this!) Several windows are paned with WAVY GLASS and others with bumpy TWIG GRIDS. When LIGHTED, this house is truly enchanting, spilling out through the windows and illuminating the rooms and the tiny FLOWER LANTERNS hanging in the front. The interior is decorated with RUSTIC yet FANCIFUL funishings, all made from scratch (with the exception of a FEW purchased mini accessories.) All furniture coordinates in a raspberry tone color scheme, made from natural twigs, bark and silk flowers."


"The unusually-shaped FIREPLACE is lighted by battery-powered LOGS and flanked by adorable chairs, rug, table and floor lamp. Step up a level and back from the LIVING ROOM into the DINING area, where a feast is ready on the quaint table. Suspended above the table, is a fabulous QUARTZ CRYSTAL CLUSTER stalactite-shaped "chandelier". (This room also has access on both sides by imaginative openings in the driftwood). The top level is the SLEEPING CHAMBER, simply appointed with a seemingly suspended TWISTY VINE BED (permanently attached), closet, jewelry/hat rack and other mini accessories."

"This home will certainly appeal to any house-hunting fairy, gnome, pixie or other wee folk!"

144th Scale Woodshire Fairy Dwelling ~ Pat Carlson


"Usually, the Fairies of the Woodshire live in simple nests...sometimes in the trees of the enchanted forest or in the hollows of fragrant leaves on the ground, or in a cozy cave upon a hillside. But if the Dreamweaver sends a sleeping fairy a dream of living in a cottage it is then their destiny to build that cottage. Only natural resources of the realm may be used, so the Fairy must wander the forests and fields of the realm, gathering the wood and stones they will need to complete their dwelling, no matter how long it takes. Once the Cottage is completed, the Dreamweaver grants them peace, and the Fairy can cease wandering and live happily in their dwelling."

"The Fairies of the Woodshire Realm often say...
May the Peace of the Dreamweaver always be with you. "


"The outside of the Cottage is landscaped with pretty flowers and bushes. A lavender-flowered vine trails up to the rooftop garden and over the roof."


"Inside, a fireplace warms the main room of the Cottage. A chair sits comfortably in front of a bookcase filed with potions and books, and a basket next to the chair holds the latest Fairy News. The skylight in the dining room offers warm sunlight during the day and a view of the stars at night."


"This fairy once lived in a nest in the trees of the enchanted forest when the Dreamweaver sent him the dream of living in a Cottage. The fairy knew they would miss the gentle motion of the swaying trees, so they designed a hanging bed for their sleeping quarters."

"The outside of the Cottage is landscaped with pretty flowers and bushes, and there is a lovely garden on the rooftop with a birdbath at its center. A tiny rendition of 'The Tree of Life' decorates the front door."

"Inside, the main room of the house holds a comfy chair in front of the fireplace and side table with a stack of tiny books. A basket of berries centers the table in the dining room, and the large windows bring welcome light into the cozy home. Upstairs is a comfy bed, and a writing desk with paper and very tiny quill pen sits under the little window."
