Another Fairy House....or Two!

Hello again!

I sure hope I don't bore you with these Fairy Houses...;^)

"The Blue Fairy"'s house is off to New Mexico later this week!

And...

I have acquired a helper...very much appreciated...

Mr. B is a much more precise shingler than I am!

(I have learned to kind of embrace "wonkiness"...;^)

Look at this "freebie" I found!
 
I got one of those boxes of 24 "mini" cupcakes at Walmart the other day...
 
and the divided plastic holder was far too cool to just throw away!
 
At first I thought I'd save it to sort beads in, then I remembered all the little-bitty
blends of polymer clay that I had sitting on plates all over my worktable...
 
It's perfect!

...And the lid keeps all the dust and ~ ahem ~ kitty hair off the clay!
 
(Polymer clay acts like a magnet for those things!)

And last but not least, Tallulah, watching from her post above my worktable!
 
Jonathan has been playing with her with the laser a lot, lately, and she is constantly
 
looking for it!
 
Have a wonderful week, all!
 
Love,

  12. I have enjoyed catching up with you and what goes on in your busy mind Anne!
    The vintage cards are interesting and fun to look at and to see such a variety of themes! I have never seen the cards with actual Easter egg people before!
    I really enjoyed seeing your photos and to what little Anne's world was like. This was a treat to visit your past!!!
    I truly LOVE every one of your Fairy houses!!! Would never be bored, each is so unique and I must say Spectacular! Keep them coming! What a wonderful hubby helping you out too! Do you count the amount of pine cone pieces you place on them? I imagine a few sore fingers are involved in the gluing process! I like you clever container!
    Ahh, Tallulah sitting pretty for her picture! <3

  17. Very sweet Fairy houses, Anne! So much detail and love goes into them! And now with a helper! How those big fingers work with those tiny 'shingles', I'll never know! I scrolled down and took a peek at your childhood photos and your vintage cards. How charming they are - I love the one of you and your Dear Mother! Oh, she is a beauty and so fashionably dressed, even her purse is lovely! And your Dad- so handsome in his suit! What precious photos - you were just the sweetest. The vintage cards were so fun. My favorite is the little girl waking up in bed to the rooster! Hope your Easter was lovely! Hugs, xoxo

  28. Do you still make tgese? I've looked at all of yours and trying to make me one now. But u realized to late that you cut the top off. But I still think mine will look great. I'm doing the polymer clay stuff to go on mine now. So did you put your gourd in the oven as well with the clay on it.
