Hide and Seek with the Fairies


Tales of fairies and witches dot the English countryside at Halloween. My friends know I'm an avowed Anglophile, so it's no surprise I would invite fairies to my Halloween event. 

This $3 thrift store find was transformed into a magical Halloween dollhouse that is hidden in my yard so the fairies can leave treats  for little people. (I've featured this cute cottage before, and like the idea so well that I'm bringing it back for an encore.)


There are flower beds for the little guests and recycled furnishings throughout.

 

Here's a little kitchen.



 And a living room all decked out for a Halloween party. Fairies do like to recycle, now I know where that zinc canning jar lid went...

 You're invited to sprinkle on your pixie dust and fly over to BYU Sirius Radio 143 for a Halloween chat with Kim Power Stilson and me on October 31st at 3 p.m. Eastern.
