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 Read about the Monhegan Island, Maine, Fairy House Tradition: www.downeast.com Workshops in Wisconsin and Michigan: www.faeriefactory.com Urban Fairies: If you think you have to be in woodland to attract fairies, think again.

Fairy Hobmother, you are definitely filling the world with joy! Thank you! May you find yourself in the presence of those who need their spirits lifted! It’s not about the things, it’s the experience of a blessing! God bless you Fairy Hobmother! Things like this really change a person. I can’t wait to see the ripple of kindness that comes from your random blessings! Ivy(www.unscriptedlife.com) Reply Love the creativity…inspiring..thank you.:-)) Reply 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!!!). Reply Out of this world! I want to live in each one of them! Thanks for collecting them all! Christine Reply 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. https://strongstart.blogspot.ca/2012/10/welcome-to-fairy-lane.html Reply The house cluster around a tall tree stump is absolutely magnificant. Creator’s email is: indulgy.com Have a long stump that would enrich my yard. How do I get pics. & directions?
