Hi, everyone,
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!  I thought I would share a picture of a project I did while I was on vacation.  When I found out that our 3 year old great-grandson was coming to stay for 3 days, I decided to build a fairy house.  I cut some willow branches all to the same length and using a hot glue gun, created what was basically a little log house.  I cut some thinner willow branches and bent them  for the supports for the roof.  I then covered the roof with bark and cedar boughs. I nestled the house at the base of a giant cedar tree and created a "fairy ring" yard around the house using white pebbles.  I then created a sidewalk using pea gravel.  Inside, I sprinkled glitter, along with some pink iridescent beads that I also sprinkled along the sidewalk.  There is a sign on the front that says "Fairy Manor" that I couldn't get to show up in the picture.   Everyday, I added some shiney new bauble to the "yard" for my great-grandson to find.  We called it fairy treasure and he had such fun going out there in the morning to see what kind of treasure the forest fairies collected during the night.  The little sticker on the front is actually a chandelier that lights up and blinks.  We had great fun with it.  An RV is a pretty limited space for such an energetic camper, so this gave him something fun to look forward to that was an outside activity.

Thanks for checking out my blog today.  I will be posting a new give-away this week-end!  You won't want to miss it!!!
