Artsy Fartsy Saturday~~~A Fairy House in the Woods




Welcome to Artsy Fartsy Friday Saturday.

Recently we went camping. I expected the usual...Beautiful views, some swimming, S'mores at night, mosquito bites galore and the occasional snake sighting....what I didn't expect was this.....



Can you guess what that is?

 Now it may look like a tree truck surrounded by vines, but not so. Still can't guess?






                       It's a fairy apartment building!




Yep it's true.


       

            This prompted my Daughter and I to make a bit of art....
           

                      

              What to do what to do...



                                We gathered some wildflowers   

                       





We decided to make a fairy house




Here is my daughter building the walls.




 we used some yarn to tie the sticks together







A hollow acorn is a perfect sink and a leaf is the perfect table cloth....
a daisy head makes a soft pillow for a fairy to rest her head



Moss was used for the floor and tiny blooms were placed outside the tiny house in a teeny tiny garden.



We placed it all under a tree near our cabin.






And you know what? I think the fairies were very pleased, because  look what we found on a walk...





A heart!




~Hope you enjoyed our camp art~


Have a magical weekend!!
Blessings, Joanne
