The Fairy Door

 When I found out about our moving to Michigan, I began to research this great state.  One of the things I found was an article about Ann Arbor and something fun they do there.  Fairy doors.  There are several business and places around town that have little doors where the fairies are said to come and go.  I loved this idea!  What fun!!  I used to read fairy stories to my girls all the time when they were little.  We had wings where we would dress up during the day and pixie dust to help us sleep at night.  You know...to keep the monsters away.  :)  So, when it came time to give my husband hints for Christmas, I knew I wanted a door for our house.

I have done some fun things with my door.  I decorate it for the different seasons....just to make it more fun and whimsical.   Now, it is adorned with hearts for Valentines Day.

My girls are growing up now.  No more fairy books or pixie dust for them anymore.  But, it is good to be silly sometimes and pretend with our little pink door in this oh-so-serious world.


My husband likes to tease me about the door.  He tells me that we have a wonderful coffee fairy that comes out to make yummy hot creamy coffee for us each morning.  But when he is gone traveling for work and is staying in hotels....he tells me that the coffee fairy did not come to visit him there.  Hummmm...funny....she comes out and makes it for me.  :)

Your little doors is absolutely precious!! Did you make it yourself?
We use to make up stories at night for our children (when we were not reading) and one of them was about Gray and Grace, two mice who live in a house with a sweet boy they befriended. :o) As soon as I saw your little door, I immediately remembered! :o) And I asked my 15 year old son if he remembered the stories, and his eyes lit up! :o)
Have a wonderful evening.
Sincerely, Trish
